LSD’S April 2012 Hot Sneaker Releases

LD postDuring the month of April, 2012; Sneaker Heads from all over will be rewarded with the “Four Horseman” of sneaker line ups. All of them individually different in their own way, yet all of them are hot to death to say the least. This is the Lifestyles Defined April 2012 Hot Kick line up. 

First up in the category for hot kicks in April to be released are the all time classics. The Air Jordan 12 Retro (Playoffs). Originally released in 1997 these Jordans were the epitome of clean and mean! The AJ-12 shoe went over well with many due to their ability to be worn with almost anything. Jeans, sweats, shorts, hell even a suit could be pulled off well. Look out for these to drop on 4/21/2012.

Next up for this months hot sneaker releases are the; Nike Air Force 1 Max Air VT (Camo). These kicks almost remind me of something you would see being created at the Mercer street, Nike Sportswear Custom store; Bespoke. A total use of the shoes upper with camo print is nothing new, but aligning this with the full length Air Max Sole Unit was simply genius. (No not the Apple Store people) Something tells me, we should expect Camo print attire to make a strong return this year.

Following the AF-1 Camos are a pair of kicks that I personally witnessed go from boring and down right blah in some of the previous models, to one of the hottest sneaker to be released, next to Air Jordans and Foamposites. The LeBron 9 sneaker kinda snuck up on everyone and soon after took the sneaker world by storm. As much as I would not want to start up yet another must have kick craze, I think both the White and the Black pair will be coming home with me on their release day. The LeBron 9 Elites will be coming in the shown White/Black & Gold, Black & Gold and the not pictured South Beach colors which will incorporate a grey upper with linings and laces of pink, an aqua mid-sole and hints of black. Look out for the LeBron 9 Elite “South Beach” to be released sometime in the coming months.
