Womens Trainers: Ladies Nike NME / Nike NME Mid Sneakers

Hey Ladies! The Womens Nike NME & NME Mid are brand new sneakers from Nike. The Low version is available in the attention-grabbing white / blue colourway shown left, and the Mid version in the equally beautiful white / pink colourway shown below right. I think lots of guys will be trying (successfully) to get away with the white / blue shoe as it looks great. In my opinion it is a unisex colourway. Hell, I'm sure some guys will rock the pink too... It's a Nike not a heel!

The womens Nike NME trainers are very lightweight, with a leather and canvas upper. For a new design (as opposed to a reissue), the NME is suprisingly dope. Well done Nike! Both models are available from the online shoe store Schuh, at £44.99 for the low, and £49.99 for the mid. Click on the links above to view the offers. Sizes range from (UK) 3 - 8 in both models. Personally, I would have loved to have seen the mid in the blue / white colourway too.

Childhood Sneaker Dreams: Nike Air Tech Challenge 3/4 aka Air Agassi

Nike launched the Andre Agassi signature Air Tech Challenge (or Air Agassi as it was known) midst Agassi mania in 1990. I was eight years old, and it was too much for my infant brain to cope with. I wanted this shoe so much... I don't really know why i felt so strongly about it. In hindsight, it's really a quite revolting colourway and shape-wise it's far from beautiful... But this shoe was something special, and the fact that I never got to wear it still haunts me to this day.

One kid at my school had a pair and I hated him for it... They were just so damn fresh... The only trainers in the entire playground that could be seen from a mile away. My favourite part of the shoe was the spherical (tennis ball) logo on the rear of the heel... wow. My parents refused to buy them for me, I can't blame them, i remember them being expensive, even for a kids' shoe in 1990. But who knows, had I got them, maybe I would have got into tennis like the man Andre Agassi... I could've been more British than Greg Rusedski, and just plain better than Tim Henman... England, it's your loss.

Andre Agassi is the only player to have made me ever take an interest in tennis (um, him and Kournikova). I think it may have been the hair as much as the shoes.

Agassi won Wimbledon in 1992 against Goran Ivanišević, his last major title was the Australian Open in 2005. After divorcing Brooke Shields in 1999, Agassi married follow tennis player Steffi Graf in 2001. She never had her own shoe, and even if she had, it could never have hoped to have been even half as dope as her husband's Nike Air Tech Challenge.

Nike: Please reissue this shoe... please, please, please...

Thanks to for the top picture.

New Balance 1500 Chocolate / Black / White

More super-freshness from New Balance... The 1500 in chocolate brown / black / white has to be a future purchase. It's not so easy to buy good New Balance online, but Frontier seem to do provide the best range right now.

New Balance 1500 Black / White / Red

The 1500 is definitely my favourite New Balance model - i feel the 'N' logo works better more understated... as it appears here. I'm currently rocking this black / white / red colourway a lot at the moment. New Balance make great quality, super comfortable, beautiful trainers... and -best of all- whilst their contemporaries continue to court controversial sweat shop labour, New Balance continue to run production at their Flimby, Cumbria (England) factory. God save the queen.
