Nike is hoping to help parents who don't live near a shoe store, so they don't have to drag the kids to try on shoes every few months to buy shoes that they outgrow every few months.
Nike launched a new sneaker subscription for kids aged two through ten, which is called Nike Adventure Club. The subscription is offered in three tiers: Four sneakers a year for $20 a month, six pairs for $30 a month or 12 pairs for $50 a month. Parents will be able to choose from around 100 sneakers.
Dave Cobban, general manager of Nike Adventure Club, addressed these problems, telling CNN Business, "We've discovered a huge pain point for parents around shopping for kids' shoe. This was a great opportunity to experiment with different solutions."

The shoe at hand debuted back in 1968 around the time when Italy won the UEFA Euro championship for the first time. All the original specs make it back for this version, including the premium leather upper, classic gum sole and low-top construction.
The neutral colorway of “Whisper White” and “Blue Yonder” is also a throwback to the original drop, with the gold accents on the side panel and heel also directly alluding to the European Football Championship won. Overall, the fact that shoe is back is a win for all of us.
PUMA never fails when it comes to reaching back into the vault, reintroducing the RS-Computer from 1986 last season and even bringing back the Inhale silhouette from 2000 last month. Now, the next re-release comes in the form of the ROMA 68 OG.

Utilizing a premium leather GORE-TEX waterproof upper, this collaborative release is held together literally with a sturdy seam-sealed Vibram rubber outsole. As an added bonus for those looking for a true set of stompers this season, each colorway — black, silver and a standout orange are the options at your feet — comes with an additional set of laces that contrast for a ’90s-inspired color-blocking effect.
Both sides of the collab are represented equally in the co-branding, with Timberland being the most prominent on the tongue and ankle, and Supreme adding its signature Box Logo embedded in a small dose on the lateral side panel. Overall, very fresh!
Pick up the Supreme x Timberland 2018 World Hiker Front Country Boot either in the Manhattan, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, London and Paris flagships or online beginning this Thursday (November 23). The collaboration arrives in Japan the following Saturday (November 24).

Air Jordan lovers are going to enjoys these new releases. The “Platinum Tint” hue seen above is yet another AJ11 that turns heads without having to do too much. The colorway, inspired by flight suits and space materials, gives us a primary Cool Grey hue dispersed over the nubuck mudguard, mesh loop lacing system and faintly with the translucent outsole.
A few red accents make their way into the mix as well on the ankle Jumpman logo, ribbon stripe on the midfoot, slightly visible on the Jumpman logo hidden under the smokey translucent outsole and signature “23” imprint on the heel to signify Michael Jordan’s renowned player number during his iconic career. Theres also some red in the stitching on the upper in a crescent shape that adds one more minor detail that goes a long way. No wonder these take inspiration from space; this drop is without a doubt out of this world!
The Air Jordan 11 “Platinum Tint” arrives this Saturday (October 27) in adult sizes for $220 USD and grade school sizes as well for $180 USD at select JB retailers.

Kanye West is expected to debut his first-ever Yeezy basketball sneaker on the feet of Adidas athletes during the upcoming NBA season. But the league office would ban the current version of the sneaker on court because of its gleaming, reflective-material heel, according to industry sources.
While the monochromatic sneakers won’t violate the league’s footwear color restrictions, the issue is the reflective “3M” heel panel, which the NBA would find potentially distracting for both in-arena spectators and television viewers.
Carmelo Anthony faced a similar issue with the metallic chrome heel of his Jordan M10 signature sneakers while playing for the New York Knicks. He later wore an updated version with a matte paint finish.
Players are no longer required to wear shoes matching their team’s uniform colors, but the league still has an approval process for new silhouettes from brands in advance of the season.
According to Christopher Arena, the NBA’s vice president of identity, outfitting and equipment, companies will typically submit sneakers for the first half of the season by early August, with shoes scheduled to be worn after the All-Star break required for approval by early December.
While the league office has yet to receive and formally review the new Yeezy basketball shoe in person, the version shared online by West would not be permitted on court as is, according to a source. Alternative versions of the sneaker that don’t incorporate the reflective material would likely be approved.
The league has banned or issued warnings for several sneakers in its history, most famously Michael Jordan’s black and red Nike Air Jordan 1 sneaker in 1985. Nike almost instantly turned the buzz around the Bulls star’s banished debut sneakers into a marketing campaign, vaulting the signature series into rare air and sparking the dawn of collectible-sneaker culture. Three decades later, the Jordan Brand has become its own fully fledged subsidiary of the Nike Inc. company, with annual revenues topping $3 billion.
In a recent post on his @KanyeWest Instagram, the Chicago native explained that his Yeezy basketball shoe has been in development for over three years and undergone nearly 300 sample updates.
The new model is expected to finally make its much-anticipated debut during the 2018-19 season, with Adidas non-signature athletes like Donovan Mitchell, Brandon Ingram, John Wall, Kelly Oubre Jr. and Nick Young potentially wearing the shoe in early 2019. Retail release dates and a finalized price point have yet to be determined.
Earlier Monday, during an interview with paparazzi in Los Angeles, West discussed his long-term vision for his collaborative brand with Adidas and his eventual goal to bring the manufacturing of his sneaker line stateside.
“The Yeezys will be made in America,” he said. “We’re putting a factory in Chicago.”

Debuting the new Marvin silhouette for Fall 2018, CK ushers in yet another addition to the “dad shoe” trend that literally every brand this and last season has incorporated into their respective collections. Leather, polyester and mesh are paired together on the upper, while the EVA midsole and yellow rubber outsole detailing completes the construction overall. Three colorways are available for the initial drop, with each incorporating a similar color palette in different ways that’s pretty easy to accomplish due to the sneaker’s multi-layered construction.
In addition to the affordable price point, Marvin is one shoe that definitely fits right in with the options currently out there, especially if we’re talking Balenciaga’s popular Triple S model.

Although the Thunder 4 Life is definitely a new silhouette, you’d be forgiven if you confused it for one of the many “chunky sole” offerings the sneaker community has been given as of late, especially from the vaults of PUMA itself. However, while not the most original silhouette, it’s for sure a nice sight nonetheless.
The multi-layered construction on the upper gives the shoe many points of interest, including hairy suede on the heel, neoprene at the toe, and leather accents on the tongue. This iteration’s Sonic The Hedgehog-esque color theme is a great finish to the overall design, and sets the shoe up for many cool colorways in the near future we hope. Here’s to more new sneakers in 2018!

If you like having a good range of selections to choose from, this is definitely one set of footwear worth checking out.

Anyone that’s been a longtime fan of Nike is pretty familiar with the Swoosh’s “Just Do It” campaign. That’s why we’re pretty sure the latest Air Max 95 colorways arriving soon will be appreciated and fawned over by many.
The “Just Do It” AM95 set utilizes the signature brand tagline on an orange colorway (synonymous with the classic color of Nike sneaker boxes) and a white option that incorporates the popular all-over print. Each shoe also comes with a hang tag for added steez, but these bad boys are honestly swagged out all on their own.
So far no word on when the Nike Air Max 95 “Just Do It” pack will hit shelves, but we’ll keep you posted when it becomes available. Peep more pics of both colorways below:
