Despite the retro-esque demeanor of the Air Hoop Structure seen here, the model is an entirely new one combining a series of elements from across Nike’s smörgåsbord of running and basketball models. However the most prominent features come courtesy of the Olympic 6s and the Air Structure runner as the high-top maintains an old school vibe in a contemporary setting. Available now at OSneaker.com.

The basketball and Hip-Hop-centric brand known as UNDCRWN team up with Nooka on an upcoming watch release set for later this June. The colorful striped design features a multi-colored polyurethane band with black aluminum case as designed by UNDRCRWN founder Dustin Canalin. With the ZENV as the model of choice, logos of both Nooka and UNDRCRWN are showcased. Limited to 200 pieces, the watch will release soon at Nooka.com/Buy.

The Air Jordan 1 “Do the Right Thing” pack based on the seminal Air Jordan has hit select retailers. The pack which comes in two colorways features similar colors with white uppers and hits of green/red. Little references to the iconic Spike Lee “Do The Right Thing” movie are seen on select parts of the shoe such as the inner lining. Overall an nice contemporary update to an original Air Jordan 1 colorway. Available at Millennium Shoes.

Based on the popular Japanese manga stemming from the 1960s, Cyborg 009 and Japanese brand Quolomo team-up with CASIO G-SHOCK on the original DW-5600. The premise of Cyborg 009 involved a team of 9 humans originally captured to undergo a series of robotic tranformations yielding a group of 9 cyborgs who band together against their kindnappers, Black Ghost. The watch itself is featured in all-white body with a black dial. Both CYBORG and Quolomo mark the top and bottom of the watch respectively while the watch band also features a printed deisgn. The watch as part of Cyborg 009’s 25th anniversary will release on July 19th at e-casio.
