One of Kevin Durant‘s most famous colorways is returning, but not on one of his signature shoes.

Meek Mill Goes Sneaker Shopping With Complex

While PUMA has released plenty of collaborative sneakers with Philly rapper Meek Mill since signing him in 2012, the brand has been quiet on projects with him in 2017.

SoleFly x Air Jordan 3 "Lotto" Golf Cleats

Miami’s own SoleFly is literally part of the Jordan Brand family given that Michael Jordan and owner Carlos Prieto are brothers-in-law. What’s resulted from the partnership has been an awesome array of collaborations ranging from the SoleFly Air Jordan 3 “Lotto” to a premium Air Jordan 16.None of those compare to the look that SoleFly just gave everyone on Instagram though, as an alternate Jordan 3 Lotto showcased a bold flamingo logo stitched onto the tongue and what appears to be iridescent panels instead of the traditional elephant print found on the actual friends and family pair. SoleFly even showcased an Air Jordan 3 Golf “Lotto” edition to further the envy on this Thursday afternoon. Check out full snapshots of the rare samples below.

Travis Scott's Air Jordan Collaboration Popped Up at a Thrift Store

Thus far, Travis Scott's surprising "Cactus Jack" Jordan Trunner LX collaboration has only landed in the hands of friends, family and a handful of lucky recipients on his tour stops. The exception is Instagram user Mo aka @mws8, who says he located his pair at a thrift store. Mo found the pair at Beacon's Closet, a highly regarded New York City buy-sell-trade spot. Perhaps even more shocking is the price tag, just $55 for a pair that would likely fetch four figures if he decided to part with them. The "Cactus Jack" Trunner LX first surfaced in July. No plans for a retail launch have been announced, but it may be worth stopping by your local thrift spot for a possible come up.
