Bronsolini fans are well aware of his love for New Balances sneakers, and in this short video he breaks down why they’re on top of his list and which ones are his favorite while we were digging through Sneaker Freaker founder Woody’s collection.

VIDEO: Skee Locker – Nike Huarache Light Free, Air Max Griffey 360, Supra S1W & Reebok DMX Run 10

 

Nike Huarache Light Free Edition
Up first is the new Nike Huarache Light Free Edition.  The sneaker is composed of a familiar Huarache upper in a classic OG color way of Black, Concord Blue, and with hints of Team Orange.  Along the toe box and inner lining there is also a nice stand out Neon Turquoise.  Infused with a white bottom sole found on Nike’s Free Run models, the upper is made up of mesh material while a soft nubuck wraps along the toe box and sides of the running shoe.  The classic Huarache logo stands out in Orange across the top of the tongue.  DJ Skee also shares an alternate color way of the Nike Huarache Light Free Edition in wolf grey, white and infrared.  
Supra S1W Stevie Williams
Next up are the Supra S1W Stevie Williams that were released in a vibrant Neon Coral color way.  The upper sports soft quality leather while just above a white cup sole the sneaker is composed of nice nylon material.  Not to be forgotten, the shoe also comes with Supra’s patented SUPRAFOAM which is sure to provide fans of the model with all the comfort needed.
Reebok DMX Run 10
Originally released in 1997, Reebok is back in the mix and has once again revived the classic DMX Run 10 style.  The upper portion of the shoe is composed of a navy mesh that wraps around the shoe while the toe box and tongue remain white.  For added detail, reflective piping also wraps around the upper while hints of Cherry are spotted along the Reebok outer sole branding, tongue, and inner netting.  However, the classic runner’s most popular feature has to be its Ice Blue sole that provides a quality cushioning system.
Nike Air max Griffey 360
Composed with the intent of a Hyperfuse style, the Nike Air Griffey Max 360 comes out swinging in a White, Black, and Freshwater color way.  With Griffey Swingman logo across the outer heel in white, the sneaker comes equipped with nice technical features such as the Nike Air Max 360 technology bottom sole.  The Nike+ enabled Max Air platform also sports nice added details ranging from its “Swingman” lettering along the back heel to its “24” across the upper tongue.  The toe box also sports a nice white leather with a fairly decent sized Black Nike check for style points.

VIDEO: Skee Locker – Kobe 8 Edition EXT, All Star, Duke, & DJ Skee Zoom 4 Exclusive

Nike Kobe Zoom 8 EXT

First up, DJ Skee takes a look at the Nike Zoom Kobe 8 EXT.  This particular pair comes in a smooth upper University Red suede color way with Court Purple accents on the inside and the outer sole.  The popular Kobe model has a nice lifestyle twist as its primary purpose is more concerned with style and appealing aesthetics rather than performance on the court.  Celebrating the Chinese New Year theme of the year of the snake, the sneaker features hints of gold along the shoe’s embroidered Nike swoosh, Shozoku tongue and heel tab logo, and lace tips.  The sneaker is light weight and maintains quality features for added support like the mid-foot carbon fiber shank plate.

Nike Kobe Zoom 8 “Area 72” All-Star

The next popular pair of kicks DJ Skee shares with sneaker heads is the Nike Kobe Zoom 8 “Area 72” All-Star’s.  Loud and in your face, the alien themed sneakers are composed of a bright and total crimson color way with Spirit Turquoise accents.  Added details such as the alien-like symbols found on the sneaker’s swoosh, orange leather along the inner heel, and crimson Kobe signature on the outer heel make it easy to understand why these beauties are highly sought after.  Not to be forgotten, the sock lining and inner sole stay true to the intergalactic “Area 72” theme and sport vibrant space-like imagery.  The mid sole of the shoes come in white and showcases somewhat of a rugged texture.  A nice carbon fiber plate can also be found along the mid-foot of the sole for added foot support.

Nike Kobe Zoom 8 Duke Edition

Showcasing an exclusive Duke player color way, DJ Skee next sets his sights on the Kobe Nike Zoom 8.  The blue devils were blessed with a nice black and white color way that features hints of the team’s signature blue along the shoe’s midsole, inner lining and heel clip.  For added detail, Duke’s iron “D” covers the tongue of the shoe in white while the traditional Shozoku logo is located on the outer heel next to Kobe’s signature.  The upper portion of the sneaker is also composed of a very nice black camo that truly compliments this Duke exclusive color way the most.

Nike Zoom 4 Duke Edition (DJ Skee Exclusive)

Continuing with this episode’s Kobe/NCAA Tournament theme, DJ Skee saves the best for last with a special pair of Nike Kobe Zoom 4 Duke Editions.  Skee shares with sneaker heads a pair of exclusive game worn Zoom 4’s that happen to be signed by the entire Duke team.  Not available to the public for retail purchase, the home color way comes in a primarily white upper with eye catching blue and black accents.  The infamous Duke iron “D” can be found on the back of the heel just above Kobe’s 24 logo which is embedded within a black crock material along the heel clip.  Sporting speckled blue laces, a black bottom sole, and black Nike swoosh’s with blue trimming these exclusives are easily embraced by sneaker enthusiasts as certified heat.

VIDEO: Skee Locker – Nike KD V “Easter” | Jordan Spiz’ike “Poison Green” | Barkley Posite Max “Eggplant”

The Easter edition KD V releases at select Nike Basketball retailers this Saturday, March 30th. This Version of the KD V is inspired by the tradition of Easter egg decorating features a colorful Turquoise Blue Hyperfuse upper with accents in ‘Bright Citrus’ orange. A light minty green is also seen on the tongue and outsole. To go along with the Easter egg theme, speckled patterns are seen on the Swooshes and visible Air Max unit.

It’s 2013 and the Jordan Spiz’ike is still running strong and continues to remain Jordan Brand’s most popular hybrid model. Dubbed “Poison Green”, these Spiz’kes take on a Easter-inspired colorway that comes just in time for the sunny Spring season. Made from smooth suede and patent leather materials, this style is definitely unlike anything we’ve seen before. Highlighted by its stealth and poison green accents, these kicks are brightened up by additional hits of university blue, blitz blue, yellow, and a subtle vivid sulpher tone.

Nike released Barkley Posite Max “Eggplant” on March 23rd. Building upon the silhouette’s successful debut as a part of this year’s All-Star “Area 72″ collection, the Barkley Posite Max is set to return this weekend in a brand new “Eggplant” colorway inspired by the classic edition of the Foamposite One. Pairing an Eggplant Foamposite upper with black nubuck and mesh across the upper, the kicks feature additional details like a speckled Max Air unit, a glow-in-the-dark outsole, and turquoise accents throughout. What really sets these off, however, is the iridescent sheen applied to the entirety of the Foamposite shell — giving the Barkley-inspired hybrid a pearlescent, color-changing aspect reminiscent of last year’s “Invisibility Cloak” Kobe VII from Nike Basketball.
