Release INFO: adidas x Solebox Consortium Guidance 93


Solebox is one of those very rare shoe collaborators that disappoint. Only disappointment I have is the struggle of getting any one of their releases. This, will most likely be another one of those days. Hikmet once again teamed up with adidas on a pair of Guidance 93. A model that was brought back from the adi vault this year. The make-up is very simple and tells the story of the colorway inspired by the Berlin city flag; similar to their ‘Then and Now’ pack from 2010. The silhouette comes in black, tonal grey suede and has hints of red through out the shoe. Simple, clean and a beauty…

Coming Soon: Reebok Classic Leather x Solebox “Sturnella Militaris”


Solebox is back with their next collaboration for 2013 and it’s an interesting one to say the least. As part of the Reebok Classic Leather 30th anniversary Solebox was one of the few chosen to participate in the history making; We seen a few of these collabs throughout 2013 and so far they’ve all been real good. To add to that history, Solebox took the Reebok Classic and added their own touch of history. They designed the color-way of the shoe with their trademark color-blocking. For those in the dark that have no clue what I’m talking about, Solebox were the creators of the colored toe and dark upper design. A color blocking we see many brands and shoe customizers copy and use today. So what better way to make a statement and also take inspiration from a bird called the Sturnella Militaris to create a great looking shoe. One made from premium materials that include leather, suede, oiled nubuck and 3M reflective…

Coming Soon: Saucony x Solebox Shadow 5000 “Grey Devil”

As the date draws near the release of Solebox’s “Grey Devil” collaboration with Saucony, some great photos of the shoe are exposed. If you’ve kept up with the images since October 2011, then you would have noticed a change that occurred to the upper of the shoe. It has changed from a suede treatment, to a leather dress. This in my opinion looks better in the sense that it gives the silhouette a more fitting separation from black to grey. It also makes the shoe a bit bolder and more premium with this overall esthetic. Take note that the shoe is now slated for an August drop of this year with a price tag of 100 EURO ( $125.00 or so). Unfortunately there is no actual day given for the launch or if they will make it to the Solebox online store. Until that INFO gets released, enjoy the great photos by my homie L.Patrick Simensen…

Preview: Reebok x Solebox Omni Zone Pump Part 2

Just over a year ago, Solebox did a collaboration with Reebok on the Omni Zone Pump that was only released at Solebox in-store. It received mixed emotions by a lot of fans, but that didn’t stop some people from paying the ridiculous eBay prices. Since this year marks the 10th anniversary of Solebox, they have decided to make a second one. Like the first one, this has lighting built into the side panels of the shoe. Instead of a Orange Light, this one has a green one with an ankle liner to match…
