Shelf Life (5.1-5.7.2016)

My love for sneakers came from the Nike Penny II, the Asics Gel-Lyte V and the adidas PureBoost. The sneaker culture strongly influenced my lifestyle by giving me a passion and hobby . Every week on Shelf Life, I’ll bring you the top sneaker releases based on my love and knowledge of the sneaker industry, as well as other pairs that might have sparked my interest.

Another week dominated by Nike and Jordan Brand sets the tone to this edition of Shelf Life, but Reebok managed to surprise us with a collab with BEAMS of a classic shoe. Here are the kicks on my list this week:

Nike Kobe XI “Tinker Muse”

Nike’s famous designer Tinker Hatfield put his magical touch on these Kobe XI. This pair has clear inspiration from the Jordan 3 Black Cement with the Nike Logo on the right heel.A gradient grey to black Flyknit blesses the upper alongside a solid white sole. Personally, I think these are amazing and a must-have as it combines two of the all-time best basketball players’ sneakers, MJ and Vino.  Not only the Kobe XI are spectacular, but the comfort of these on and off the court makes these extremely versatile for playing ball or event just rocking these casually.

The Nike Kobe XI “Tinker Muse” are now available on select Nike retailers such as Foot Locker House of Hoops and Courtside Sneakers for a solid $265.
