All white everything is undoubtedly one of the best colorways on any shoe for the summer. We all know the feeling of copping a fresh pair only to be reluctant to rock them in fear of getting them dirty. No need to worry, with Jason Markk, Crep, and Forcefield cleaning accessories you can keep those #ShoesSoFresh. These are not your average shoe cleaners and protectors, these provide bang for your buck.

With the Jason Markk brand, no longer will sneakerheads need to use household cleaning products and other solutions containing harsh chemicals to clean their kicks. Recently, they launched the first dual-textured cleaning wipe for sneakers and shortly after, a premium stain and water repellent. The company’s goal is to fulfill the needs and wants of today’s sneaker consumer by continuing to be innovative and creative. Its mission is to become the most widely recognized and trusted shoe product, cleaning service and accessory brand in the world.

Founded over eight years ago in 2007, today’s products can be found in over 2000 stores in 30 countries.

The Nike Flyknit Racer ‘Volt’ is back but not like you may remember. The first time the Racer released was back in 2012 during the London games and the sneaker world went crazy. Since 2012 we have seen the Flyknit technology take over a number of silhouettes, but the Racer still reigns supreme. Much like the addition of Flyknit, we have seen volt don some of Nike’s innovative kicks and have people turning their heads to catch a glimpse of the flash.

This year’s version is decked out in the classic volt, black and white colorway. The upper has a blend of black and volt throughout the knit and is complimented by a black swoosh on the outside and a white one on the inside. With the color combination being a sneakerhead favorite, you can count on these being just as hot as the 2012 pair. These are perfect for your end of summer rotation, so make sure you grab a pair.

Allen Iverson was known as one of the most polarizing figures in the NBA. With his different fashion style and cultural influences he had on the game, AI always had the spotlight on him. Back in 2001, Iverson teamed up with hip-hop artist Jadakiss to hype up the release of his 5th model of the Reebok ‘Answer’ with an iconic commercial. 15 years later, Reebok is set to release the Question Model in the same colorway of the ‘Answer’ that debuted  in the 2001 commercial for the 20th anniversary of the shoe.

Dressed in a sleek black and grey upper with red accents throughout makes this a great shoe for transitioning into the fall season.
