Nike Dunk High “Iron Bot” Customs

Australian sneaker customizer Sekure D presents us with a look at one of his latest creations, the Nike Dunk High “Iron Bot”. Inspired by the man in the iron suit, but with a robotic twist, the sneakers use an Iron Man inspired colorway in Red/Gold and feature the robot arm pattern that Sekure D’s become notorious for using over the years. In addition to the mid-panel being covered with his signature pattern, the robot arms also become noticeable beneath battle wounds, parts of the Red paneling which are made to appear as if part of Iron Bot’s protective outer shell has been torn away. Paying close attention to the shading around the edges of the battle wounds, the effect gives off a trippy 3D look into the inner robotic workings.

Now we have some more Nike-related news that’s also about a relatively new Nike silhouette- the Nike Air Feather high. This sneaker actually dropped for the first time last year and now comes in a straightforward red/white and white/white colorway.

Nike Air Max 95 – Anthracite – Metallic Silver

This past year will go down in fashion history for its use of ‘all black everything’, but grey has played an equally huge role in the post-recession fashion world. Grey softens high contrasts and might be the ‘cleanest’ color other than white, and we all know how amazing a range of greys looks on the Nike Air Max 95. This one goes a bit further than normal, sticking with a mix of silver and greys all the way down to Anthracite without a speck of ‘color’ to be seen. It’s a simple concept on paper but turns out to be one of the hottest AM95s in recent memory, and they’re available exclusively from Britain’s JD Sports.

Ronnie Fieg’s ongoing collaboration with Asics has produced some beautiful work of late, and oh yeah, the sneakers are pretty dope as well. Feig’s been showing us his latest kicks on the feet of some gorgeous ladies of late, so here’s a more realistic look at what to expect if you can get your hands on the Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte III ‘Coves’. Check out these images of ‘The Cove’ GLIIIs on the feet of Complex’s Joe La Puma and Phil Annand from The Madbury Club. We’ll leave it up to you to judge their accompanying fits, but one thing’s clear from these images: the kicks have roughly the same shade of blue as your typical swimming pool, and they look great with denim, even when soaking wet!

Nike Air Trainer Max 91 – Black – Varsity Red | Available

Think “early ’90s Nike midtops with in black and red with an ankle cutout” and you’re likely to conjure images of the Air Jordan VII and/or Huarache series. Mention criss-crossing velcro straps from that same era, and you’re sure to picture the AJVIII. But before any of those all-time greats got out the gate, the Nike Air Trainer Max 91 was in the weight room and out on the track. This Trainer Max 91 was last retroed in 2005, and the beloved Bred colorup ensures these’ll fly off shelves again a half a decade later.

Air Jordan Six (6) Rings Winterized – Holiday 2010 Collection

Last year saw the release of the Air Jordan Spiz’ike Winterized Boot, and with cold weather coming quicker than you know it, the Spiz’ike’s AJ hybrid successor is waiting in the wings with a boot version of its own. The Air Jordan Six Rings Winterized Boot shows how close the Air Jordan XII’s top eyelets really were to your traditional hiking boot lacing system and each of the three colorways we have to show you today is perfect in its own way. You can’t go wrong with an all-black boot and one with dark brown on the upper with a black sole is equally destined for no-brainer success, but the standout is pictured in the middle and looks to take its colorway from the OG Air Magma ACG.
