Jordan Dub Zero 2009 (Black/Red)

Now I know some of you out there aren't too big on the Dub Zero but this may be the one that makes you come out the pockets! Scheduled to release later this year, the Jordan Dub Zero 2009 features the official Jordan colorway Black/Red. Does this colorway make you change your mind about the Dub Zero? Via KATC

Supra Tom Penny Pro Model - Spring ‘09

The Tom Penny Pro Model is here to remind folks of Supra’s versatility. In stark contrast to some of Supra’s flashier models, the Tom Penny shoe has a simple classic look, but still possesses some style of its own. Three different colorways sport some varying materials and perforation styles. Black and purple suede versions feature metallic gold accents with the white leather shoe using navy patent leather. All three feature a white midsole and tonal laces and can be found at select Supra accounts now. Via Sneaker News

Converse Wade IV Sample (Miami Colorway)

It would appear that Converse is making some moves this week with the announement that they will be dropping the Weapons and now the Wades are getting some love. These are actually the Wade 4's. This is the sample which features the Miami Heat colors and a pretty straightforward design. Big props to D-Wade this season, he is currently the leading scorer in the league and is a shoe in (pun intended) to win the scoring title. Via Sneakerfiles

Here’s a look at a limited edition Converse Rivalry Pack, releasing this Saturday at KICKS/HI, created by Converse to commemorate the legendary ’80s rivalry between the Boston Celtics and the Los Angeles Lakers, and specifically between the teams’ respective stars Larry Bird and Magic Johnson, who were both of the Converse camp. Both pairs in the pack are composed of predominantly black uppers and white midsoles; the low pair features Lakers’ colorways, while the high pair exhibits the Celtics’ iconic white and green.
