Greedy Genius is adding this lovely pair of sneakers to their line up, aptly named Ocean Runner for its boat shoe influences. Its like they took a boat shoe and made it a hightop and its got the same threading style as the Nike Vandals. Definitely made it into a winning combination and its got a nice silhouette. I also like the colour choices, grey and… brown-ish? Pretty nice, a def cop fo sho! more pics after the jump.

Triumvirs founder Brandon Cheng was given the opportunity to design a Nike SB sneaker with FLY from China and this is the product of it. They’ve taken inspirations from their staples in their heritage: noodles, traffic, highways and Tianamen Square. These are really nice sneakers even though I’ve had just about enough of these Chinese heritage inspired shoes even though its not that apparent in this one. These should be at SB dealers soon.. or now. So keep your ears to the ground! More pics after the jump

I guess it was bound to happen… He’s not known as the Louis Vuitton Don for no reason. So he’s working with Louis Vuitton to design 6 shoes, and here’s a sneak peak at one of them. looks pretty clean. Not bad, but the heel of the shoe could use some work. Can’t wait to see what the others will look like. No word yet on coulours… either.

So a complete look at the CLOT x NIKE 1World Air Force 1’s is out. As you may know, CLOT is based in Hong Kong and as such, they felt it was necessary to represent that in their shoe. This shoe is immaculate in its design and intent to show the world the asian culture. The packaging is truly amazing. Likened to Chinese New Year candy boxes, the package includes, instead of candy, several coloured laces in separating segments, and then the shoes. This is what I call product design. More pictures after the jump.

So Reebok is set to release these Ex-O-Fit Hi SG Strap shoes in the new year. February 2009 I do believe, and in 4 colours! Silver, gold, pink and white. All very monochromatic but very nice none the less. They look very similar to the Nike Air Yeezy what with the strap and all. But to each his own? Hit the jump for the shoe in the other colours.
