ADIDAS ORIGINALS BY JEREMY SCOTT JS WINGS “TOTEM”

With another out of this world pair of sneakers, designer Jeremy Scott may have completely topped himself with his “Totem” JS Wings. Loosely tied into a Native American iconography, his loudest pair for the Spring/Summer 2013 pair looks toward a totem pole for inspiration, and explores a wide variety of colors in its makeup. The adidas Originals Attitude high-top shoe sits on a black EVA midsole with a ton of Native tribal design work with a mock warrior face on the tongue.
You can preorder the shoes at LUISAVIAROMA for about $270.

FREAKER SNEAKS “END OF AN ERA” CUSTOM JORDAN V LASER X REEBOK ALIFE PUMPS

Sneaker customizer Freaker Sneaks has been in both the sneaker game and the customs game for a long time, and decided he was getting tired of what he was seeing on both fronts. With sneaker collecting devolving to a level of sitting in front of your computer being told what’s hyped and then beasting your way to a pair, the game has turned into a popularity contest where only those with the most hype bait are revered. 

Customs have suffered a similar and related fate; since the trend of sneaker blogs like Nice Kicks picking up only customs based on Lebron 9s, Kobe VIIs, and Foamposites crammed together with South Beach, Galaxy, and NERF themes, the customizing world has turned into one where only those with the strongest hype radar survive.

Freaker got tired of this, and decided to do something unheard of. For years, touching an Air Jordan was all but illegal in sneaker customizing. Until Mizzee and others made it acceptable in the mid 2000s, no one would dare work on Js. A similar feeling is present for any shoes with holy grail status like the alife x Reebok Pumps, which not only feature the neon orange tennis ball felt, but real pumps in the tongues as well.

With both of these pairs on ice, beckoning to never be sold with the never-ending promise of an increased price point if he waited just ten years to sell them, Freaker decided to do the unthinkable and mix two different brands with a tongue swap and midsole color flip. The result is an incredibly inspired and unique pair of sneakers that will surely polarize all sneaker communities, though his response in customizing circles has been very positive thus far. What do you think?

AIR JORDAN XII “COOL GREY”
In case you missed it because midnight releases are all but illegal anymore, the Cool Grey Air Jordan XII dropped this past weekend. At $160, the rerelease features a Bobcats-esque colorway. But don’t let that turn you off, because the cool grey across the majority of the base blends well with the team orange details in the side and tongue borders. You should still be able to find the sneakers online or in store.

ADIDAS JEREMY SCOTT “GORILLA”

Far from fierce, the adidas JS Gorilla is more like a fuzzy doll than a streetwear sneaker, but breaking rules is something famed designer Jeremy Scott is used to, and shows through in this king-of-the-jungle version of Scott’s infamous bear-themed shoes. With a removable trefoil tee and extended arms on a gorilla tongue, these shoes will do anything but bang on your chest to draw attention. The cuddly kicks are available now at select overseas retailers.
