Wholesale Nike Cortez

Those familiar with Nike’s history will know that co-founder Bill Bowerman crafted some of the brand’s first sneakers using his wife’s Belgian waffle iron. (The iron was trashed in the process, but we’re guessing she forgave him when Nike went public in 1980 — and his 26 million shares were valued at $9 million.) The first such shoe was the Nike Cortez, but a much-improved later model was the fittingly named Nike Waffle Trainer.

Whether you know them as Nike’s first-ever running sneakers, the iconic shoes in which Forrest Gump ran across the country, or as a staple in West Coast fashion, the Nike Cortez is undeniably a classic.
The Cortez sneaker has a deep history that actually pre-dates Nike as a company. The very first iterations of the shoe came about in the mid-1960s when famed track coach and Blue Ribbon Sports (the company that would later become Nike) co-founder Bill Bowerman teamed up with Japanese footwear brand Onitsuka Tiger to design track sneakers.

After several name changes, they landed on The Aztec, but that named turned out to be too similar to Adidas’ Azteca Gold track shoe. It is rumored that the sneaker was then renamed for the final time after the Spanish conquistador who defeated the Aztec Empire, Hernán Cortés, to one-up the Three Stripes.

When Blue Ribbon Sports went on to design its own footwear and change its name to Nike, the Cortez sneaker went along with the brand and officially released as we know it in 1972.

Ever aware of its past — and the public’s appetite for it — Nike has reintroduced this iconic shoe. The latest version features the classic moccasin-like upper, wedge midsole and of course that waffle outsole, but it’s also got some modern touches, including a memory foam sockliner and dual-density foam midsole. Pick up a pair today for a timeless look that’ll take you from the track to the bar in style.

Wholesale Yeezy

Since 2016, the adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 has seen iterations upon iterations, making it one of the most successful silhouettes from Kanye West’s billion dollar baby. Now, adidas is set to release the YEEZY BOOST V2 “Cloud White,” building on Kanye’s highly-touted selection of sneakers. On StockX, the sneaker has amassed an average price of $435 USD, which is trading at 93.6% over the MSRP.

The adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Cloud White” lends itself to a dreamy combination of white, light blue and grey tones along the upper and across the laces with a mix of primeknit patterns weaving above the midsole. With a translucent monofilament side stripe and classic gum midsole coated in a thick white hue, the boost technology hides in the ridged sole for signature comfort and consistent design aesthetic. Just like recent YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 releases, the adidas YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 “Cloud White” will also be offered in a “Cloud White Reflective” variation at a later date.

Head over to StockX now to secure your chance to cop the latest adidas YEEZY BOOST V2 “Cloud White” before everyone else does. The lowest ask currently sits at $319 USD.

With his soulful Sunday Service sessions occurring on a weekly basis and a new gospel album on the way, Kanye West is apparently feeling the holy spirit. Thanks to the angelic adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 “Cloud White”, he’s imparting that impassioned ethos onto his adidas Yeezy line as well with a colorway inspired by the skies. With the second Yeezy 350 silhouette more than two years into its existence, it’s established a standard style with its knit upper, bulbous midsole, and — as of late — the recognizable translucent side stripe. Here, this familiar construction is given a little heavenly flair thanks to its mix of divine white and unexpected blue tones, while celestial comfort arrives via its full Boost footbed. Yeezus is a man of the people as well, so these Cloud White Yeezys will be available in an extended size run, with the men’s retailing for $220 USD, the kids for $160 USD, and the infants for $140 USD.

Wholesale Air Max 4

After serving up a sophisticated New Balance 577, international boutique Sneakersnstuff has prepared something special for its 20th anniversary. As mentioned on episode 56 of our podcast, co-founder Erik Fagerlind has selected one of his favorite silhouettes — the Nike Air Max Tailwind — to receive a thematic upgrade in time for the celebration.

Little can be seen of the retro runner, though the bright tongue is unmistakable. A swath of yellow splits the white and grey panels on either side, with embroidered text that reads “20th Anniversary Tailwind IV Since 1999.” Tonal detailing is realized on both sides, made lush by premium materials like hairy suede and hardy nubuck. A black Swoosh at the toe stands in stark contrast to the rest of the design, with metallic hits accenting the lateral side stripes.

According to Fagerlind, fans can expect to see Sneakersnstuff’s 20th anniversary Nike Air Max Tailwind 4 receive wide release later this year.

Nike has more collaborative drops on the horizon, including special sneakers for Skepta and John Elliott.

Wholesale Kevin Durant Shoes

In case you forgot, Kevin Durant is a Brooklyn Net, and on Friday, he sat down (in front of Nets’ logos) to discuss his new team, offering the smallest of hints that he might be back this season.

“I’m excited about this group,” Durant told Chris Henderson (SEEHENDO on YouTube). Obviously with me not starting off the season, being injured, you’re gonna see a lot of guys step up, do some things and go to another level as a player.”

Not to speculate too much, but Durant mentioned that he won’t be starting the season. He doesn’t say anything about being out all season recovering from an Achilles rupture. Then again, we won’t speculate too much just yet.

As for who he believes will step up while he’s out, KD ticked off a list…

“Caris [LeVert], Joe Harris, Taurean Prince. Even the older guys like Garrett Temple, Kyrie [Irving], DeAndre [Jordan]. I feel like everybody in this environment in going to step up, especially due to circumstances with me not being available. I think everybody’s going to step up and take it to the next level, we got great coaching, great front office, great fanbase that’s excited for something new. This is a fresh start for everybody I feel.”

Durant was particularly glowing in discussing Irving.

“We all see it. He’s one of those guys that you don’t even have to talk about. Just watch him play,” Durant said. “He’ll make you feel a certain way when you watch him. His movements. His mentality out there. His smarts for the game. His efficiency. He’s an all-around player.”

KD also admitted he’s excited about wearing the Nets’ “City” uniforms with their Biggie Smalls-inspired Coogi styling.

Biggie is always going to be the main influence around our team,” Durant said. “We’re driven by his influence, what he rapped about, living in Brooklyn, coming up from Brooklyn, the bottom. That’s how we play. We’re inspired by stuff like that. No matter if he’s in the jersey, his spirit is always going to be around the team.”

Well, Hello Brooklyn!

QUICK TAKEAWAYS
Notice how KD mentioned LeVert first. We’ve often noted how LeVert and Durant have maintained a strong relationship for quite a while now, so much so that the two worked out privately in the past several years. Even before LeVert was drafted back in 2016, KD was encouraging him. When LeVert underwent Dr. Martin O’Malley’s knife that year, Durant told him, “Once Doc finishes with you, you’ll be like brand new.” LeVert is a big reason why he’s here.
As for the others, he mentions Joe Harris, who is currently competing in the FIBA Games for Team USA. Of course, there’s Taurean Prince, another friend of Durant’s, who the Nets traded for in June. He also mentions a couple new Nets, including Garrett Temple, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan. Irving and Jordan are also good friends of KD’s.
His last line was telling. He praised the coaching staff and front office, both best known for their ability to maximize players’ potential, whether it be a two-way player coming up from the G-League or up-and-coming stars. Everything he mentioned about others stepping up during his absence … it’s all part of Brooklyn’s “Next man up” identity.
“This is a fresh start for everybody,” he said after talking up the Brooklyn Nets fanbase. Lack of attendance is something the Nets have gotten flack for. However, with two of the biggest superstars playing in Brooklyn, it’s safe to say that’s going to change.
It’s a quick one-minute clip right smack in the middle of a 45-minute candid conversation. We didn’t get a press conference, but we did get this!

Durant will be in Brooklyn sometime this month. Media Day and Training Camp are right around the corner.

Meanwhile, KD posted another update on his rehab Friday night on Instagram…

Wholesale Air Max 2009

The Nike Air Max 95 is without a doubt one of the most popular designs the sportswear giant has ever released. Its popularity has led to it being dressed in various color schemes over the years, some more extravagant than others. The latest colorway to surface of the mid ’90s runner resembles the original color blocking that made the shoe such a hit when it first hit shelves.

Dubbed the Air Max 2009 “Fresh Mint” colorway, this Air Max 95 is essentially a retro of the “New Green” makeup that hit shelves back in 2009. Its wavy upper is covered in alternating shades of grey suede. Additional aspects of the design include white mesh eyestays, a neoprene tongue, and reflective accents on the tongue and heel. Fresh Mint adds a pop of color to the lace loops, tongue logo, mini Swoosh stitched on each lateral heel, and Air bubble. The upper sits atop a black midsole.

Look for the “Fresh Mint” Air Max 95 to hit select retailers on Friday, May 10, with a wider launch expected in the coming weeks. Check out official images of the pair below.

Wholesale Air Jordan 27

With the NFL regular season kickoff finally here, Jordan Brand is getting some of its athletes ready for the gridiron with new Air Jordan 1 Mid and Low cleats.

Set to hit the field Sunday are Air Jordan 27 cleats for Tyrann Mathieu of the Kansas City Chiefs, Earl Thomas of the Baltimore Ravens, Alshon Jeffery of the Philadelphia Eagles, Michael Thomas of the New Orleans Saints, and Le’Veon Bell of the New York Jets, as well as a sixth unpictured cleat for Bell’s teammate Jamal Adams.

Each colorway is kept fairly simple, adopting the respective team colors of each player. Standouts include a metallic gold patent leather finish on Thomas’ Mids and the use of a muted silver leather on Jeffery’s Lows.

Like many PEs, it’s unlikely that these pairs will hit retail, but other colorways of the Air Jordan 1 TD can be picked up for $125. Fans can expect to see the exclusives pictured here in action beginning Sunday.

Wholesale Air Jordan 30

Jordan Brand is ready to unveil the next chapter of the storied Air Jordan legacy with a groundbreaking thirty-fourth model. Prior to the official debut, this teaser of the Jordan 34 silhouette gently hints at some new innovative elements while sharing some familiar design qualities as the Air Jordan 4. Beginning with the Air Jordan 31, Jordan Brand chose to infuse DNA of its predecessors – specifically its ancestor from exactly thirty models ago. That said, we can expect the Air Jordan 34 to introduce a modern take on the Air Jordan 4’s signature features, and this teaser does reveal a translucent mid-foot panel that is likely a nod to the netting of the ’89 model. The Air Jordan 30 brand also shared a countdown clock pointing to an event on Saturday, September 7th at 1:30 pm ET, so stay tuned to Sneaker News for live updates as we’ll be attending the official unveiling event set to go down in New York City.
