Kicks with Aloha

Maybe it’s purely coincidental or it may be an effect of Hawaii-born Marcus Mariota, but Nike has been releasing several Hawaii-themed goods. There’s the Mahalo Marcus shirt, and now there’s the Air Huarache “Aloha” and Roshe One Print for the women.

The feet of the wahine are well taken care of, but where’s the aloha kicks for the kane? I guess there is this upcoming LeBron 12 low hot lava.


And the Air Max Lunar90 Breeze Hot Lava.


Oh wait, it’s just not Nike. Looks like Hawaii is a theme destination for this season’s kicks designs. New Balance has their Luau Pack.


Adidas is featuring “Hawaiian camo” on the body of the Tubulars or just the laces.



I just can’t decide which of these is my favorite.
