Larry Johnson and Stacey Augmon defined style with a brashness that is captured in the latest pair of Saucony Grid 9000.

Reebok x Maison Kitsun'e – The varsity jacket has been a staple in men’s fashion for several seasons now, and Maison Kitsun'e is the latest to take on this sporty look. With the help of Reebok, the jacket arrives in a bright red with contrasting white leather sleeves and a double striped waist, cuff, and collar. A “MK” chenille patch is on the chest, and “Reebok” also comes across the back. The detailing is beautiful, but the attribute that really brings it all together is the Kitsun'e fox lining on the interior.
Concepts x Nike SB “Holy Grail” Pack – Boston’s Concepts is known for killing it in the collaboration game and has dropped a new project with Nike SB.

Using religion as inspiration and staying with the Holy Grail theme, the Dunk High has a stained glass appearance, the Janoski Max uses a mosaic pattern, while the revered Dunk Low has a shiny iridescent upper. Concepts usually has solid collaborations, but these are some fruity-looking sneakers that continue to add to the heap of garbage that is Nike SB.
