nike blazer hi brown aztec pack 04 540x513 Nike Blazer Mid Aztec Pack

Loving the print and perfectly fall appropriete coloway of the “Aztec” pack to be released for holiday. While the collection includes a Blazer low and a skinny Dunk  for the ladies, the Blazer mid stands out as a favorite. We recommend swapping the white  laces for leather ones for an earthier look.

Nike Lookbook Illustrated By Female Comic Book Artists

05 October 2011, 14.43 | Posted in Chicks with Kicks, Sneakers, activewear | 3 comments »

NikeAutumn2011 (8)

Nike takes a more creative approach to its Autumn 2011 presentation by collaborating with female comic book artists Jan Duursema and Amanda Connor to create a “Make Yourself A Superhero” lookbook–an approach that takes the focus off of the celebrity athlete (which unfortunately there is a dearth of when it comes to females) and puts it squarely on the every day woman.

As for the artists, Duursema is known for her work on the Star Wars series and Connor has contributed to Mad magazine and has drawn for DC Comics’ Power Girl and Atlee.

The days of sneakers as style nevereally left, however  as Lois pointed out in one of our intense “trend analysis talks,” we definitely see it coming back to the forefront.

Kreayshawn On Cover Of Complex

kreayshawn complex 3 540x348 Kreayshawn On Cover Of Complex

Kreayshawn (who we discover in the interview was born Natassia Zolo and whose mom is Russian–ha, shocker…not!)  is having a coming out party via a cover story in Complex magazine’s October/November issue, in a big feature called “About To Blow” that includes a photo shoot and interview. Here’s what the young lass has to say about her sudden stardom and the resulting chatter–much of it very nasty:

“People are so crazy that they’ll make their own fantasy life story of me. People have such passion loving me and such passion hating me, but it’s good to have passion either way. I never looked at myself as a marketable person. I just try to let my personality shine through. Do you think a 16-year-old girl gives a fuck about where I’m from or what I’ve done? No, she loves the songs.”

There’s a lot of interesting content and it’s definitely more revealing than a lot of bios done so far on her (apparently she’s beefing with half a dozen rappers, including Nicki Minaj!). As for what she wears in the shoot, lots of Jeremy Scott for Adidas, American Apparel and Nike, but no sign of Gucci, Gucci, Louis, Louis, Fendi, Fendi, Prada….

See the photo shoot and a video on the next page.

Highsnobette-fave Cassie is featured on the cover of Blank magazine, as photographed by Gomillion and Leupold. Cassie can’t take a bad picture but the summer fashion and accessories featured in the shot suit the sexy sensuality that is her calling card perfectly. (Would love to provide a link and credit  the stylist as s/he did a very nice job but can’t find the url! And those are some Melody Ehsani earrings she’s sporting, throughout the shoot, no?) Via Necolebitchie.

UPDATE: Aaaaand we have a stylist credit from the comments: Capricorn and Marni aka Caprini @Cappadonna on Twitter or Capricornsredshoediaries.tumblr.com/

Nike Women’s SFB Premium Boot QS

01 July 2011, 18.50 | Posted in Sneakers | 1 comment »

Nike Women's SFB Premium Boot QS

Nike presents the Women’s SFB Premium Boot QS and it is already one of our favorite Swoosh releases in a while for women. The combination of the technical combat boot with flower patterns and pastel colors somehow works for us.

“Inspired by Nike co-founder and University of Oregon Track & Field Coach Bill Bowerman’s time in the 10th Mountain Division of the US Army, the Nike Innovation Kitchen and Tobie Hatfield set out to honor their founding father with a modern athletic boot designed for first responders. Initially launched in 2009, the Nike Special Field Boot (SFB) was engineered to the specifications of elite military personnel. The SFB was quickly adopted as one of Nike Sportwear’s most distinct styles and this release sees the model modernized with a classic Liberty pattern.

The Women’s SFB Premium QS features quick-drying synthetic leather overlays for durability and support, multiple ventilation zones for breathability and a Nike Free-inspired outsole designed for traction and a natural range of motion. The boot’s ultra lightweight, breathability and cushioning provide performance benefits with sensible street appeal. The boot debuts in July and select global retailers.”

Detailed images of the boots follow after the jump.
