Frank the Butcher’s latest cut comes in the form of a collaborative Reebok. The BAU x Reebok Insta Pump Fury OG from Frank’s Business As Usual brand places the unique model in black neoprene, chino leather and white Hexalite to create a classic look. Although it may seem traditional during the day, subtle 3M splatter print on the inflatable cage gives the collab some shine. Get a full video review of these BAU x Reeboks above, and grab a pair March 15th from select RBK accounts, including shopnicekicks.
No one wants any of their sneakers stolen, but as the newest innovation from Nike Basketball and with a $225 price tag, you definitely don’t want anyone stealing your Kobe 9s. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happens to Jon Hundreds’ Nike Kobe 9 “Perspective” in his latest scene. Check out the comical video here, and get a full look at Jon’s personal 3,000+ pair collection in our Sneak Peek here.
The Air Jordan 3 “Infrared 23″ is the latest take on the iconic elephant-printed silhouette, adding a fresh new style code to the model’s line.

Get a full video review of the upcoming release above, and tell us if this pair a must-have for you in the feedback box underneath.
Skating into spring, Live Look is back with a board shoe built for style. The Taka Hayashi x Vans Vault Sk8-Mid LX sees a familiar collaborator put his aesthetic on a seldom seen cut. Slicing the top off the Sk8-Hi but sacrificing no cool points, this new Taka Hayashi collab rocks a suede upper and leather lining, while the sidewall sees nods to native patterns of New Mexico. Get a detailed view in the video above and pick up a pair at shopnicekicks.com.

MMG artist Rockie Fresh keeps signing deals. After inking with Rick Ross’ label, the Chicago-based rapper signed a sneaker deal with PUMA that teamed him up with fellow Maybach Music Group member Meek Mill. Now with dual backing, Rockie is putting in work for both parties. We caught up with the Clyde-wearing artist at a recent stop on his These Things Happen Tour with G-Eazy to rap about everything from his music career since signing and collaborating with PUMA teammate Casey Veggies, to the music-industry’s sneaker influence and his past and future with the classic brand.

Rising from its early ’90s roots, PUMA’s Trinomic technology is coming back in original form. Originally introduced in 1991, the innovative cushioning system was utilized in PUMA’s 90s Runner, XT2 Plus and XT1. Using small cells that are designed to collectively flex with the movement of the foot, Trinomic is just as functional today as it was 20 years ago. Get a history lesson and a preview of what is to come in the behind-the-scenes video that features PUMA’s designers above.
