Hood By Air Spring 2016 features a Nike Air influenced high heel


Amongst avant-garde looks and inventively proportioned clothing items, Shayne Oliver creative director of Hood By Air seems to have taken inspiration from a retro and classic Nike model with the creation of a new pair of Woman’s heels. At the recent Hood By Air New York Fashion week show, models strutted down the runway donning multiple color-ways of heeled shoes with the word “AIR” highly visible on the side panelings. Sneaker enthusiasts and people paying attention to kicks in the mid 90s remember the Nike Air More Uptempo with admiration and reverence. Chicago Bulls Scottie Pippen chose the Uptempo as his signature sneaker and the shoes transitioned successfully to massive off court appeal. Hood By Air has a history of reinterpreting classic Nike models, earlier this year the brand meshed classic Nike Huarache like tooling with the storied Timberland boot construction.

Shayne Oliver decided to pair his creatively invigorated designs with new showings of officially branded Nike Air sneakers as well, outfitting both female and male models in the Nike Air Flight 89. The Flight 89 was briefly available on Nike ID last year. The first sneaker to bear the “Air Flight” title, 1989’s air flight displayed an innovative design and completely influenced the coveted Air Jordan 4 with it’s distinct look and striking midsole. Hood By Air as a brand has always melded the worlds of streetwear and urban style with a high fashion detail and presentation, dedicating itself to an aesthetic a host of other designers also used this recent New York Fashion week. View more images of the Nike Uptempo inspired heels and shots of a few progressive high fashion Air Flight 89 pairings in the gallery below.

Last Tuesday, Landmark Sunshine Theater gave fellow sneakerheads a documentary they have been wanting the longest for.

A crowd of no more than sixty people waited for the private screening of Sneakerheadz. A film spondored by Complex and directed by Academy Award nominated director David T. Friendly along with Mick Partidge. Sure,there has

been many documentaries related to sneakers but not one quite like this.

The film focuses overall on every aspect of the culture that many of us are heavily  gravitated to. We hear the news about some heat dropping and then the race to get them but never really questioned why. What makes sneakers a must have essential for so many and who is responsible for mayhem?

It features some of the legends in the game such as DJ Clark Kent, Jeff Staple, Russ Bengston and many more. For those who assume their knowledge is one hundred percent correct about the sneaker culture you may want to think twice about that, especially a culture you didn’t create. From across the USA to Japan sneakerheads exist and they all have a special story to tell particular about that one kick in their closet that has probably never been worn. Wait to you watch the footage and take notes from these cats, they are seriously dropping knowledge about how this small artistic culture started from the streets and is now an incredible influence on todays society.

Sneakerheadz will be available at  Vimeo on Demand August 21 but you can pre-order it now for just $13.

Can you tell us what makes a sneakerhead, whats on your feet ?
