It seems like everyone these days are hopping on the Nike Free bandwagon. It’s a pretty sweet wagon to be on even though it’s a crowded one. Stand out from the noobs by sporting these new 5.0′s from Nike’s N7 collection.
Besides having a sick weave design, the proceeds from these shoes goes to the N7 fund which provides product donations and grants to Native American and Aboriginal communities in support of sports and physical activity programs for youth.
Do yourself a favor and pick up a pair directly from Nike.com.

If you’re about that life, then you can pick up a pair from Mr. Porter.
Believe it or not, sneakers can help change the world. That sentence might be an overstatement, but TOMS is aiming to help restore the rebuilding country of Haiti with their latest collab.

Despite the many many many criticisms of Hedi Slimane‘s re-branding of YSL, I personally think the men’s RTW collection is pretty solid for this season. Also available in white, you can pick these kicks up at YSL.com.
Today’s featured kicks come from the 4th capsule collection of Kenzo and Vans.
After a trip to Thailand, the creative directors of Kenzo got inspired to put this “clouded leopard” print into their S/S ’13 collection. The eye popping print was so popular that they decided to make it the signature for their latest venture with Vans.
The kicks are come in 5 other color ways besides this and come in both the classic slip on and the lace up “Authentics.”
