Sneakers, gym shoes, kicks, whatever you call them, there's no denying that shoes have been an integral part of hip-hop culture since its inception. From the days of Run-D.M.C. flaunting their Adidas, to rappers now having their own footwear lines, shoes really do make the man in the rap world. For our new feature, "Kicking It With Prime", we're going to take a look at some of the newest and hottest sneakers that are set to drop soon and sure to be seen on feet everywhere. Among the sneakers featured is a collaboration between New York street wear brand KITH, Diamond Supply Co. and ASICS Gel SAGA.
Sporting a black and tiffany blue color way, a signature of Diamond, these shoes are sure to be a popular release. A sneaker with a very similar style and color way is the Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max Black/Light Retro. The popular skate shoe features the same casual stylings as the ASICS, making it a popular choice among sneakerheads. Finally to round out this editions sneakers are two classic Nike silhouettes that have been revamped for 2015.
First up is the Air Force One Yacht Club Aqua. Featuring a completely white outsole as well as white laces, the sneakers are complimented by an entirely aqua blue upper that is sure to pop out this summer. The second revamped sneaker we're treated to is the Air Max 90 LTR Premium Blue Graphite. This classic trainer has been restyled with premium materials and features a blue suede finish. Both Air Forces and Air Maxes have seen revivals of popularity within the hip-hop community lately, and it seems that Nike has taken notice with their recent rerelease of the classic sneakers. All these sneakers are sure to get plenty of wear all summer, so check them out for yourself and make sure you pick up a pair.
