How can you ever get tired of a timeless Air Max sneaker? Blessed again by the sneaker lords to see the return of the Nike Air Max Plus, Nike now Introduces the launch of the Nike Air Max Plus “Casper.” Built in a Snow White sports mesh for the upper featuring a White on White on White on White, color palette with hints of patent leather throughout. You will also see shots of Grey used, while standing on the loved Tuned Air unit heel and 360 bubble system out sole. Casper was a friendly “Ghost” and these are nothing less than a nice drop from the Nike Brand. Better go cop yours now or be left with the I just seen a ghost face. The Nike Air Max Plus “Casper” is now available at select Nike Brand retailers including Footlocker
Looks like the Nike Brand is far from finished with the Air Foamposite Pro and with this drop, the resurrection of the Foamposites may have just begun. Lately Nike’s Foamposite releases have been hit or miss but it definitely looks like a home-run introducing the Nike Air Foamposite Pro “Elephant Print.” Crafted in Wolf Grey and a full Elephant print foam shell for the upper, also featuring accents of Black throughout. You would have thought the Black Swoosh was a piece of art as it lays against the side of the silhouette, standing on top of a Bright Pink out sole. They say nothing in this world is perfect but if I had to choose, the color pallete used on this sneaker would definitely be it. Is this the hope that we all have been looking for from Nike and the Foamposite series? Though no official release date has been announced the streets say these are slated to debut October 2014. Stay tuned to KoF for more information and release news.

In a battle of undefeated rising fighters, UK combatant Kell Brook scored the upset win, defeating Shawn Porter by majority decision. It was an incredibly close fight that was tough to judge, with both men having a lot of success at times. Porter's game was what we have frequently seen from him as he looked to fight his way inside and rough Brook up from the clinch. Brook meanwhile used a counter punching game to catch Porter as he came inside. That battle of aggression vs. counter striking kept up throughout the fight, though as the fight progressed, Brook seemed to gain confidence and turn the tide more in his favor. Porter fought hard until the final bell, making this a tough fight to score, but at the end of the day, Brook remains undefeated and takes home the Welterweight title.
