Adidas Titan Hypermotion from Footlocker US

I wish Adidas would sell all of their shoes globally, these running shoes have got it all for me.

I love the fat stripes, the yellow soles, everything.

So, avoid the rioting and order them online from footlocker US (although your local post office may have gone on fire)

here’s the blurb:

Mono-mesh overlay with see-through underlay treatment offers breathability and support.

Pearlized synthetic 3-Stripes® brings a bold approach.

Blown rubber outsole gives lightweight grip and cushion.

adiWEAR® outsole adds best durability in high-wear areas. Wt. 11.6 oz. (about 329 grammes)

Reebok ZigNano Premier ZigFly from JJB

I like the look of the Reebok ZigTech soles, here’s a nice pair of running shoes from the line.

here’s the blurb from JJB:

Reebok’s most technically advanced running and training shoes, the ZigNano Premier ZigFly look and feel like no other! Light, flexible and durable, the men’s Reebok Premier ZigFly running shoes are designed to conserve and return energy to provide a soft and springy ride.

Giving you an ‘Energy Boost’ as you run, the zig-zag shaped sole absorbs the impact of your heel strike sending a wave of energy along the shoe. This transfer of energy horizontally along the ‘zigs’ creates an ‘energy return’ to propel you forward and make running easier.

Featuring breathable SmoothFit mesh uppers and soft cushioned footbeds, the Reebok ZigFly keep you feeling light and comfortable. And with less stress on your key leg muscles – up to 20% less wear and tear on calf/thigh muscles – the Reebok ZigFly running trainers let you run faster and train longer!

  • SmoothFit synthetic support overlays
  • Breathable nylon mesh to keep your feet cool
  • StableFit heel support
  • Lightweight foam zig-zag sole reacts independently providing a smooth ride from heel to toe
  • Flexible zigs provide fluid traction and fantastic grip 
  • Stable, the softer heel slows down the rate of torque
  • Less Wear and Tear: ZigTech reduces wear and tear on key leg muscles

Adidas x Star Wars “Hoth” Skywalker from Crooked Tongues

I trailed these a couple of weeks back and now they’re available in most sizes.

Nothing really to say, except they’re inspired by Luke Skywalker’s outfit at the beginning of “Empire”

Sweet shoes, and they’re right up my (and yours) street.

Get them from Crooked Tongues. Me? I’m holding out for the Wampas.

Pro Keds New Order 30th anniversary via Zazzle

To mark 30 years of New Order, Clash magazine commissioned Studio Parris Wakefield to design a special cover image for the August 2011 issue which featured an Interview with New Order.
Zazzle are putting them on pro-keds, both high and low.
If you’re still bitter about not being able to buy the Joy Division shoes I showed you earlier then you can get these made to order at Zazzle.
I think they’re ace.
