Lately I’Ve been doing a lot of Sneaker photography on IG (Sneaker_Gno) so I thought I’d post everything from this month. Yesterday I had good friend over that is getting into photography, and a couple weeks ago I managed to get my hands on some studio lights. So Here’s January so far. No new releases so don’t be surprised. Sorry #hypebeast.
Yesterday 1/4/13 I was challenged by a friend (@Mr_Nasty2Q10) about my credibility of being a true sneaker head. Me being Sneaker Gino I just knew he was joking. The shit talking continued so I told him for the sake of not only proving my credibility but to give me reason to take new photos. I would post a sneaker everyday from my personal collection. I would like to open up the Sneaker Challenge to all my sneaker friend’s and photographers. The rules are posted below.
Let the challenge begins.
Sneaker Challenge Rules:

Amongst all things quick.
As usual Nike is hitting us with another quick strike.
No this isn’t our usual SB QS but a vintage shoe gone retro.
Nike Air Pegasus ’92 Decon
These ACG colorways are sure to be popular amongst the masses.
Check ‘em out below.
As usual around this time of year. Nike releases
their Holiday preview.
This Fall they have included my most hated shoe.
Don’t get me wrong the AF1 has been
customized and creatively inspired by some of the best
but it’s uniform structure and simplicity is a big turn off.
Anyway, back to business. This batch of AF1 designs include the VT technology.
Vac Tech, the vacuum technology used to the mold the shoe creates
a seamless yet highly attractive build. Unlike the usual
stitched leather panels we often see.
On top of the various flavors of AF1 VTs, there are a pair
Lunar Macleays and Footscape Wovens also scheduled for
Nike’s Holiday release.
As September approaches be sure to stop by for release info.
You all know I’m a big fan of artistic kicks.
Jeremy Scott, one of the most talented
sneaker designers out has blessed the sneaker game
with yet another pair of Adiads OG Wings.
This time around he douses the shoe with
dark camo and has lined the inside with a “Aviation” orange.
The combination of the two should have heads turning.
Scott has also included a dog tag with the following lines:
(Top to bottom/Left to right)
Thanks to Caliroots.com / Six Feet Deep for the photos.
I’m sure your all wondering how to cop a pair.
For $328.30 or 25,200 YEN which ever is cheaper for you
you can get a pair from Mita Sneakers.
Be sure to check their site out.

If you all have been following @Amareisreal on twitter (the latest social networking craze)
you would know that he has been working with Nike to make changes to his current deal.
Here’s the latest:
The quality of the photo isn’t well but hey!
Something is better than nothing.
The Elephant ( traditional grey/black cement two tone) print plastered over the entire shoe places a good texture on the shoe, the
purple on the upper of the shoe, back upper Nike symbol
and across the front strap ( also including ”STAT” Stoudemire’s nick name) adds a good pop.
The purple also places a nice color balance to separate the Elephant print and black.
Imagine white or grey…I’m pleased with the shoe. Nike did well.
No surprise PE’s usually go that way.
Shows that you can be subtle as the TBIII’s or drastic as the Nike Air Force Operate.
Would you like to own a pair?
Well head over to Ebay and start bidding. Current price is $500.00
Good Luck Bidding!
Original Scoop Here:
Yesterday many of you had a first look at the Retro Jordan Cement III scheduled to release in 2012.
With this you may have noticed that the recreation of the shoe is speculated to have nu-buck/suede for many different reasons
the sneakerhead has expressed they would like to see this shoe with the leather instead of nu-buck/suede.
If you agree please help us voice our concerns to Jordan Brand by clicking the link and signing the petition below.
If we speak now and spread the word we may be able to have the retro release mirror the orginal.
Please spread the word and help us get the word to Jordan Brand!
As you all have anticipated, the wait will soon be over.
The “Wolf Grey” Air Jordan V
Priced @ $150
The sneaker God’s have heard my call once again…
No release date, but I’m ready to cop!…
