Since entering back into the ring this year, British Knights has come firing with a flurry of flavour. Slightly off-beat from the usual BK we are use to seeing, the Hajime Sorayama collaboration is an interesting step forward for the brand. Revered for his futuristic and heavily erotic style, Sorayama’s robotic women have become sought after for decades by the masses. Translating from the canvas to the footwear world, this Control HI is one half of the two part pack, which boasts an arousing array of metallic finishes and golden detailing. Fans of Sorayama’s work know this one is a must, so head to Oneness to collect yours right now, and keep glued to SF for the second part of the pack.
After checking out the specs on the Control Hi half of the Sorayama x British Knights pack, run your eyes over the Control Mid lower half. Utilising the same reflective intensity, it’s a serving of suede down back that raises the wear-ability levels here. Against the starkness of the silver dosages, the sandy beige oddly adds a nice premium touch, which is further complemented through the tongue and sole unit. We’re not saying this one’s in the bag, but those with a keen eye will find a way to pull them off. Time to dust off the old Slim Shady jeans, kids? Find these now at Oneness.
If you like bright, do your thing.
I’m already exhausted at all the Nike LeBron 12 colorways that have been previewed so far. Here’s a new Bright Orange/Volt colorway to peak your interest until the season starts and Nike decides to finally unveil the 12th signature shoe for LeBron. This release has been handled very poorly, but that shouldn’t effect sales hopefully. Stick with TSG for official details of this upcoming Nike LeBron 12 release.
Man, we thought we loved these bad boys before, but these new images of the Nike LeBron 12 “Lion Heart” have us approaching Stan levels. We realize that this new dramatic rendering of LBJ’s signature sneaker is already extremely polarizing, but even the most staunch hater has to give this colorway some love. In these new high quality photos we can see that the red mesh is overlapped by orange honeycomb-like cells which really speaks to Nike’s surprise in King James’ decision (part deux) to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Nike LeBron 12 “Lion Heart” will hit shelves on Halloween, October 31 for an MSRP of $200.
What do you think of LeBron’s new digs after seeing these photos? Trick, or treat?
