#ClatsAndKicks Vol. 4 – All-Star Weekend

Starting off with the surprise release of the Red October Yeezy 2’s, you know it’s going to be hard for this week’s new releases to follow it’s act. Basketball sneakers are running the show as the NBA All-Star weekend has arrived, but of course there are many other releases turning heads and breaking necks. Read along as we take you through this week’s sneaker drops, and how you can find the perfect Rastaclat matchup for your new pickups!

The week started off with probably the biggest release this year so far, maybe the biggest of the year of 2014. Nike shocked the whole sneaker community with the release of the “Red October” Yeezy 2s. They released them in true quickstrike form, meaning unannounced and unexpected. The release leaving a bitter taste in peoples mouths whom couldn’t lock them in their cart, also brings the question ; should Nike do this more often? Nike usually gives a heads up on big releases and they get gobbled up by bots, which gives regular buyers little to no chance of buying what they want. Were you able to secure your pair of these red beauties?”

Highlighting this weekend’s releases are the Jordan 6’s. The famous clear-soled kicks with the hidden “23” panel placement, continues with the retroing of highly coveted colorways old and new. The White Infrared 6’s are an original colorway, which released in 1991. 99% sure there isn’t a rockable pair of ’91s, this is your chance to grab a classic that you can actually wear. The other pair, being the “Infrared 23″ is a brand new look for the 6s. Infrared grasps almost the entire sneaker and is balanced out with a bold black secondary color.”
