HOOMUZE a movement that sort of diverged from the basketball mainstream until the early ’—GMHC
Freshness explores the landscape of a boundless culture with no definite origins or home. The site is the face of a global community concerned with the acquisition of goods, for reasons both known and covert, in a studied and tactful manner. Our world has taken to product design and brand marketing as the new frontier in compelling others to think differently, create distinctively and communicate effectively.
As a sturdy platform, providing the culture with a launch site for its explorations of all things highly stylized and purposeful, both within the sub-culture community and beyond, Freshness is perpetually seeking more from our community and its creative leaders. Our interviews and text offer the user a more transcendent broadcast. We seek to publish that which arrives on the scene and complicates the grid. Our mission is to bring our users, whether they be part of our daily, loyal audience or first time visitors, information not previously known concerning their specified area of interest. Even to spark interest in the reader where there had previously been none.
However, it is not just exclusive current events that Freshness is after but a fairly unique vantage point, spanning the oceans and continents, from New York to Tokyo and in between. We ascertain a very specific type of speech and thought from our topics that is not easily found elsewhere. Our distinct advantage is our earnest passion for new types of knowledge, whether it is sub-culture related or not. To extract and highlight the sophisticated nature of our international community as it extends from city curbs to the suburbs.

People are excited about one of the OG Air Raid II colorways coming over to the first model to be sure, but you can’t deny the simple pleasure that is this original 1992 . This (Flint this time around) with the white midsole takes us back to the upslope of the early ’90s streetball craze, a movement that sort of diverged from the basketball mainstream until the early ’00s ‘freestyle’ surge. The Air Raid captured the essence of the time and was rugged enough to stand up to the asphalt, and you can make sure yours are ready for the streets ASAP with a pre-order ahead of April’s delivery from .

The just showed off its new Woven iteration, and with the majority of its 25th anniversary year still to come, expect a ton more activity from this classic runner. Coming up in April are at least two brand new styles, both of which follow a pattern of using a perforated suede along with some without holes punched in it and a bit of mesh at the toe. There’s one in Mica Green and Light Base Grey, and another in Obsidian with tonal grey accents, both of which share the Peg 89′s distinctive ‘open’ Swoosh. Click in for a better view of both pairs, then pre-order yours ahead of the April shipment from .

The has already ticked the OG box in 2014 by making its way to shelves in that beloved “Hot Lava” colorway. There is much more on the way for the sneaker though, and not all of it stays within those lines. Pictured here is a new version of the shoe featuring a suede colorway on top and a red shade for the sole kit that make them an ideal candidate for sole swapping. Continue reading to see a full photo of the shoes and watch for more info on this upcoming Air Tech Challenge II on Sneaker News.

It’s been a long time since we saw the form, but it looks like that shape is coming back for 2014. Shown here is a pair, expected to release in April, that is part chlorophyll trainer and pair “Safari” tribute. The pair seems like the spiritual successor to the of a couple years back that paired up those two 1987 design but no word yet on if we’ll see a similarly colored Safari nodding to the Trainer 1. Continue reading for a detailed set of images and tell us if you’ll be picking up a pair in the comments.

The was a reactionary sneaker, a demand placed on Tinker Hatfield and his team back in the early 1990s when Nike realized they needed a response to Reebok’s outdoor court shoes. What they came up with was this flat-footed X-ed out shoe, which made its debut in 1992. The strapped silhouette is coming back for 2014 and we can only assume its return is imminent given that online retailers overseas are starting to fill pre-orders for them. Take a look at another colorway for the 2014 incarnation below and then lock yours down early from if you’re feeling antsy.

New colorways of this classic Huarache silhouette continue to surface as we get a first look at a clean “Turbo Green” version that looks as if it stepped right out of the original catalogs. Using a clean White/Black/Grey foundation, Nike opts for this bright green hue on the sole, liner, logo, and heel to grasp that out-of-the-box Agassi effect. This new release is hitting retailers overseas, so stay tuned for release info for the States and enjoy the gallery of images below.

We’ll take any chance we can get for extended looks at the Nike Huarache. The sneakers are so rarely available over here in the US that there’s a pretty good chance that all of these random EU exclusives will be released into the ether and never heard from again, so it’s worth documenting them before they become a memory. This white/turbo green is one of the latest and runs with the recent choice of reworking the toe box down front. Stay with us after the break for a more complete set of catalog shots on these speckled shoes and then grab them from if you’re so inclined, as that appears to be the only place where you can do so.
