Black on Black, Air Max Red


I went to one of my favorite Portland caf├ęs called Nuvrei which is located in the Pearl District on 10th and Flanders. Not only do they have some of the most amazing coffee I’ve tasted but they do all of their own baked goods and they even have their own macaroon shop. Whenever I go there they are always friendly and I receive wonderful service.

I had the pleasure of meeting Alex who works and Nuvrei and it turns out he is quite the sneaker appreciator. He says that Air Max is his favorite sneaker and he has over six pairs, but he is starting to collect Jordans. Here he is rocking his red Air Max 1. I like how he styled his kicks with black pants that have a leather panel and layered his tops. Style is on point!

Ms. Sky Hi


Here is Heather rocking her Nike Poncho which is included in the new Nike Tech Pack that was released. The Nike Tech Pack is one of my favorite collections that Nike Sportswear has released because they implemented the use of fleece fabric into their designs which offers lightweight warmth. I love how Heather put together her poncho with a pair of black leather skinnies, her RayBan Aviators and her leather snakeskin print Nike Dunk Sky Hi’s. I love the Sky Hi’s because they are a feminine approach to wearing sneakers for the woman who doesn’t collect sneakers but still wants an athletic approach to sportswear. The snakeskin is fierce and paired with the leather skinnies gives an all around black-on-black, edgy look. This chick is ready to take on the city, but wants comfort while doing so.

All Hail the Gator King


These LeBron “Gator King” 11’s made for the All Star Games which was hosted in New Orleans this year, is hands down one of my favorite LeBron’s ever made. The detail is astounding with the laser-etched glow in the dark Hyperposite underlining contrasted with the deep purple upper, all channeling the alligator inspiration which we all know is the king of the Bayou with translates perfectly for LeBron James. Steve rocks this with a dark wash jean and a grey hoodie. With these sneakers, rocking too much color in your outfit might take away from the shoes. I like the way Steve put a simpler outfit together, to really let his kicks stand out!
