Image: Vulcan Stev Like most best and worst columns here on Kicks on Fire, it usually starts with a trending tweet that leads to sneakerheads adding their own flavor to the proceedings.  This past weekend, the Twitter world got together and made #AddAWordRuinAMovie a hot topic for discussion, making every movie ever made an open target to be poked at for the sake of comedy.  Naturally, there were some creative ones and kinda bad ones and plenty of stuff in between, but this was one of our first attempts at it.  Quite frankly, I think it would have for a better movie. 2001: A Space Jam Odyssey #AddaWordRuinaMovie — KicksOnFire.com (@kicksonfire) October 5, 2013 As they always say, sneakers make everything better (note: only people who say that are sneakerheads).  So we get our Kicks On Fire Twitter family to chime in as well and they came up with some pretty good suggestions and some that really should be left on the cutting room floor.  So here now is The Best and Worst of #AddAWordRuinAMovie Sneakerhead Edition. White cement chicks #AddaWordRuinaMovie @kicksonfire — Taylor Grabill (@TayGrabill) October 5, 2013 Considering Marlon and other Wayans family members were really into Js like Concords and Cements, I think he would appreciate that tweet.

Designed to fit like its name, these shrouded classics feature monkey-hand support on the inner base and a stretchable zip-up cover. The first colorway to be retrod is the iconic black and white style code that Payton wore when he won his only NBA Championship in Miami.

Familiar but fresh, the sneaker art of Larry Luk finds some of the most storied silos and colorways presented in sharp style. While Luk is well known for his design work with We Are The Process, this showing sees revamped renderings of iconic Nike models with a focus on clean lines and defined angles.

Losers like to keep us guessing, they gave us a creepy peek at their fall/winter collection a little while back, leaving us to our own devices to guess what was going. Boy, was we wrong! We thought we saw some majestic embroidered blue birds swooping across a couple of Schooler Mids, but feathered friends they ain’t – they’re big angry sharks with gnashing teeth! The classy tan and navy corduroy uppers make these furious flips a little more genial thankfully. The Shark 3.5 is set to drop in coming weeks at Up There, Above the Clouds and Cabinet Noir in Australia. No related posts.

Hot Pockets has done its best to make a resurgence over the past few years, shunning their prior image as heavily artificial, and perhaps overly cheesy. By some stroke of (hopefully intentional) irony, the brand has tapped Kate Upton and Snoop Dogg for a commercial that embodies those very characteristics. Imagine, if you will, the following: Kate Upton has a dream in which Snoop Dogg materializes from the TV following an interview with Larry King. The two break into a rap-song video that, were it not for contemporary graphics, could easily double as a Cocoa Puffs script. The song that Upton's subconscious associates most closely with Hot Pockets is Biz Markie's "Just A Friend," which is thus transformed into a food-themed, Bow Wow-assisted jingle. Genius? Maybe, we'll let you be the judge. Read more at Hypebeast.com

Asics is getting in on the grape colorway game with their two latest models of the Gel-lyte V. This second colorway resembling the Jordan Black Grape V’s sports a primarily black upper with purple, aqua, grey, and white accents. These being the Gel –lyte V’s is ironic because the first retro Jordan’s to boast that colorway were actually retro V’s themselves. A white grape colorway is also on the way for the Asics Gel-lyte V’s to add to the irony of the “Grape V’s” colorway. These kicks release overseas on October 12th at Titolo. This has been a sneakerfiles update; stay posted for more sneaker news. Via Titolo

When the young Benny “The Jet” Rodriguez decided to scale the “giant gorilla-dog thing” guarded fence to retrieve a Babe Ruth autographed baseball that belonged to his friend’s father, he brought a secret weapon to the sandlot – shoes guaranteed to make a kid run faster and jump higher – a pair of P.F. Flyers. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the iconic Sandlot film, the now New Balance-owned and operated brand has rereleased for a limited time the very same pair of all-black Center Hi’s Benny adorned in the climatic chase scene. Each pair will feature a green and white P.F. Flyers patch on its lateral side, a “Secret Weapon” label on its inside collar, a specialized retro-styled box and a custom insole graphic. Heroes get remembered, but legends never die. Follow your heart kid and cop yourself a pair online for $59.99 USD while supplies last. You owe it to the younger you.
