Empty Canvas x Reebok Instapump Fury OG*~

Reebok teamed up with Hong Kong retailer Empty Canvas on a new version of the Instapump Fury OG, that looks like it jumped right out of TRON. The all-white canvas version of the iconic sneaker features some stunning glow-in-the-dark features that will for sure turn heads once the sun comes down. Rather than giving the entire sneaker the GID feature, Empty Canvas opted to nicely define the GID areas, resulting in the perfect overall balance, while still adding a striking look to the otherwise very subtle and minimal sneaker. You can purchase the new Empty Canvas x Reebok Instapump Fury OG from Sneaker Politics.

Nike Air Force 1 "Playstation" 2016 Release*~

A decade after the initial debut in 1996, Nike commemorated the 10th Anniversary of PSOne with a super-limited edition Air Force 1, a true gem of a sneaker that has gone on to be one of the most sought-after shoes ever created in the 21st century. This teaser image shows what appears to be a 20th Anniversary celebration of the gaming console, although it’s not quite clear if a re-release of the first Air Force 1 is what’s at stake here as it could quite possibly be any sneaker given the number of Playstation-themed Nike promo sneakers were created in 2006. As of right now there has yet to be any confirmation from Nike, but check out this teaser image below via @SneakERound.

A Man Who Robbed People Waiting to Buy Air Jordans Gets Eight Years in Prison*~

Last summer, Jordan Brand dropped the "Bordeaux" Air Jordan VII Retro. For most 'heads, this meant the first chance at a remastered version of the sneaker, and just the second opportunity to cop them since the original 1992 release. However, one Connecticut man apparently saw dollar signs when he came across a group of teenagers camping out overnight to cop the shoes. 24-year-old Angel Cintron was one of three men who robbed a group of teens at gunpoint during the release last year, reports CBS Connecticut. Cintron and two other men made off with cash, cell phones, and a laptop belonging to the teens after the robbery outside of a Waterbury, Conn. sportswear store, and now he's finally facing the music.

First Look: Air Jordan 11 Retro Low "Metallic Gold Coin"*~

Courtesy of 2muchsol3 on Instagram, a grainy image has emerged highlighting the "Metallic Gold Coin" XI Lows. As its nickname suggests, the shoe sports a "Metallic Gold Coin" patent leather mudguard which is reminiscent of the design detail seen on the "Ring Night" Ray Allen Air Jordan XI PE. However, unlike the Allen PEs which are nearly unattainable unless you have deep connections or even deeper pockets, this XI is slated to be a general release dropping sometime at some point this summer. Better quality images should be hitting the web in the near future so stay tuned for those and an official release date announcement.
