Featured models include the Nike Zoom Huarache Trainer Low and Nike Trainer 1.3 Max, along with special Ring Boot for the fighter to wear in the ring.
This April “the powers that be” in Nike is releasing another Dunk High SB inspired by the weed smoking icons Cheech and Chong designed by Bratrud. The Dunks are primarily white, the white broken with red stripes on the right of the shoe and the bandanna print on the left a reference to the bandanna worn by the comedians in their movies. There is also a small pouch behind the tongue to probably hide any contraband that you might have. The shoes also comes with alternative green laces.

France is currently Feiyue’s main market and its secondary markets are Europe, Asia and the United States.

Feiyue literally means “Flying Forward” Today, the name is the only remaining link between the brand and its Asian origins, since everything is now done in Paris. Full of meaning and difficult to pronounce or understand, it shows that the brand does not deny its roots, even though it is naturally moving away from them.
