Since he first worked with Nike Sportswear on an Air Max BW PE back in 2016, grime icon Skepta has become one of the Swoosh Brand’s most consistent musical artist partners, and now he’s set to take a detour from his signature Air Maxes with his re-worked Nike Shox TL. Dubbed the “Bloody Chrome” by Skep himself, the shoes are a macrocosm for the man himself: inherently serious, with great attention to detail and just enough flair. The upper features a flat black base accented by jet black tones, while pops of chromed-out detailing arrive on the midfoot Swoosh and the tongue, which has been flipped to read “SK Shox.” Down below is where these Nike Shox earn the “Bloody” part of their nom de guerre, thanks to a full-foot polyurethane piston cushioning system that’s dressed completely in a bold “University Red” hue. The BBK general’s newest Nike shoes are set to hit select retailers on September 12th for $200 USD, so check out a store list below to see where you’ll be able to snag a pair come release day.
With its bulky build and copious cushioning system, the recently-revived Nike Shox TL is nothing short of a statement-making sneaker, and now it’s surfaced in what may be its most wild iteration yet: one that combines reptilian and equestrian detailing. Each piece of these bold Nike shoes presents its own potent palette. The midfoot kicks things off with a sporty navy blue mesh that’s overlaid with high-gloss navy overlays and equipped with a chromed-out Swoosh. Then, the toebox and takes on a dark brown pony hair, while the heel boasts textured python-skin leather, making for the rare sneaker that presents more than one animal print. Iridescent silver synthetics also appear on the heel to match the tongue. Not to be outdone, the full-foot Shox setup down below equips a bright silver, sandwiched in between periwinkle and silver Pebax plates. Pops of high-vis reflective material littered throughout the lacing system complete the look. Nike Shox this unique are not the easiest shoe to pull off, but if you’re feeling adventurous, you’ll be able to snag ’em later this fall on Nike.com.

As the first-ever shoe to feature the now-iconic “Safari” print, the Tinker Hatfield-designed Nike Air Safari holds an esteemed spot in the Swoosh Brand’s archives. 2018 has served as a revival of sorts for the classic model as well, as it’s come to market in several colorways both new and old. The latest pair to join the pack of releases calls upon the iconic print in a slightly different way though — making for a look that’s more jungle than Sahara. The forefoot and midfoot feature a mix of olive green mesh, nubuck, and leather. Black appears towards the back to provide contrast, starting with the midfoot Swoosh before also appearing on the collar. The upper is then completed by a generous helping of black and tan safari print on the heel, and a two-tone black and white midsole finalizes the shoe’s look. Supporter of the Safari? These durable kicks are available now at the retailers listed below.
The symbiotic relationship between Nike Sportswear and legendary Tokyo-based boutique atmos has spawned some of the most iconic footwear collaborations ever. All the way back in 2003, atmos combined two classic Tinker Hatfield creations by imparting the design ethos and materials of the Air Safari onto the Air Max 1. 15 years later in 2018, the Swoosh Brand returned the homage by dressing the Safari in a colorway inspired by atmos’s “Safari” Air Max 1 — creating an interesting homage cycle of sorts. Now, the roots of inspiration are set to go a little bit deeper: Nike has taken the Atmos-colored Safari and added OG “Sport Blue” accents — the likes of which you’d see on the original Air Max 1 colorway — for a flash of alternate flair. Everything from the canvas uppers to the tan/burnt orange tones to the classic textured print is left intact, but sporty blue detailing arrives on both the mudguard and the heel to add even further to the already-layered look. That’s not all though: the Beaverton brand also has a similar version with red suede uppers on the way, a nod to a Safari Air Max sample from 2009. Check out the history-packed kicks in detail below, and look for a release later this year at select NSW retailers.
Inarguably one of the most beloved Air Jordan 22 colorways of all time, the AJ13 “Flint” last released in 2010, but now it’s set to return to market once again with a true-to-the-original release a full decade later in 2020. With a color scheme that blends rich navy, stately grey, and sporty white, the “Flint” melds lifestyle-ready looks and court-ready performance in an overwhelmingly appealing fashion that few other Air Jordans can lay claim to. The signature pockmarked midfoot overlay and cat’s-eye badge on the heel collar give it its most iconic flourishes, and in a twist that’s sure to delight OG Jordan Brand lovers, the upper will indeed feature high-vis reflective detailing — a beloved original accent that was noticeably absent on the otherwise flawless 2010 retro. This will mark the fourth “Flint” iteration, as after its 1998 debut, it released in 2005 and again in 2010 (as mentioned above), and if the last re-worked pairs were any indication, it’s sure to be wildly popular once again. Refresh your memory with a look at the 2005 pair below, expect a release in spring/summer 2020 for $190 USD and keep it locked right here for more info as it’s available.

Although “Have A Nike Day” may be the foremost lifestyle push for the Swoosh Brand in 2019, “Just Do It” isn’t finished yet — a new Air Max 95 featuring the timeless slogan has surfaced. Although the phrase is familiar, the stylings are all different: a color combo of white, black, and grey is used, while “JUST” is printed in bold block letters on the lateral quarter and “DO IT” adorns the medial quarter in similar fashion. Also known as the Mt. Fuji Air Max 95, Japanese detailing appears on the tongue badge, translucent outsole, and high-vis reflective lace loops to pay homage to Japan’s most prominent peak — a mountain that’s the seventh tallest on the planet. The look is then completed by hike-ready speckled detailing on the grey midsole.

Out of the many motifs in the Beaverton inventory, overbranding seems to be the most memorable as their classic logos and recognizable slogans have filled the uppers of their icons in once heavy frequency. Going back to those sensory overloading basics, Nike has donned the Air Max Plus with all-over prints of “Just Do It,” a sign off in the form of basic moral support. Forefoots are left neutral so as to allow its main focal point to shine, opting for plain white shades across its subtle toe cap and synthetic constructions. Sole units, though aggressive in their structure, follow suit with only the air bubble feature slight color. Swooshes, which are here outlined rather than appliquéd, compliment the heel wraps iridescent finish adjacent to its stark white typography.

Originally seen on the Air Max 95, Nike’s multicolor and denim-dressed tooling appears once more though translated into the design language of the sleeker Air Max 200. Though connected in both palette and materials, this silhouette’s take arrives much more distinct, featuring two variations of the indigo staple while also setting up a backdrop of many a statement hue. Base synthetics and mesh underlays are the most bold in their dye: toe boxes as well as the rest of the panelling prefer an asymmetric coloring, swapping in and out of Voltage Purple and University Red and then adding extra brightening notes of a sunflower yellow. Overlays, of course, are the most standout as they do their best Canadian tuxedo impression: their face, which is mostly faded to a vintage lightwash, are placed right on top of smaller segments in darker shade and heavily distressed edges. Grab a detailed look at the pair right here and find it rolling out to Nike.com as well as select retailers on September 26th.
Summer has officially ended but the Nike Air Max 200 is dropping in a bright “Voltage Purple/University Red” colorway for its next variation.

Hits of purple are also applied on the toe box and scattered throughout, while it’s topped off with sun and heart logo lace locks, a white midsole and a purple/yellow outsole to round out the design.

Introducing the Nike Air Max 2017. The signature Air Max line seems set on the combination of Engineered Mesh and 360 degrees of visible Air on the midsole and outsole unit, as that duo has been the standard for the past four models. But this year, the regularly visible Dynamic Flywire is ditched for a unique new aesthetic. Details still remain rather limited in regards to the Air Max 2017, but from the official photos previewed throughout this post, the rigid mesh construction creates a wavy upper that bolsters the side panel and heel for a head-turning design sure to make, well, waves once a number of colorways arrive on November 7th in men’s, women’s, and kid’s size runs. The signature Engineered Mesh construction adds a flexible ventilation to the forefront and helps solidify a gradient before reaching the reflective 3M Swoosh branding on the side panel. Check out the two debut colorways of the Nike Air Max 2017 below and let us know if you plan on grabbing a pair on November 7th in the comments section.

Arriving now at European retailers, the Air Max 2017 officially drops on November 7th.

Is there an Air Jordan signature that didn’t come in lowtop form for Mike Bibby? His Team Dime player exclusive archive is full of almost exclusively lowtop silhouettes in Kings colorways (although the guard did then chase some championships as a veteran later in his year). Today we get a look at this Air Jordan XXI Low, a sneaker that was probably featured on Bibby’s feet at home in Sacramento due to its white leather upper while a purple stitched 10 hits near the heel.

Although the adidas Yeezy Boost 350 and adidas Yeezy Boost 350 v2 have both released in a plethora of colorways since the line debuted in 2015, an all-black version of the Yeezy 350 hadn’t been seen since that same year’s “Pirate Black” drop. However, that four-year drought is now set to come to an end, as the Yeezy 350 v2 will release in a black makeup on June 22nd. While the monochromatic look is intentionally simple, there’s still plenty of interesting details present.
One of the wackiest Yeezy shoes yet is indeed the adidas Yeezy 451, a sneaker that Kanye first revealed earlier this year and later confirmed it as part of his 2019 footwear launch slate in his quick marker-on-paper sketches. In his latest tweet, the controversial designer/musician offers up the most updated look at the outsole of the Yeezy 451, one that has been reworked by legendary footwear designer Steven Smith. Smith has penned some unforgettable classics like the Reebok Instapump Fury and the recently unearthed Zoom Streak Spectrum Plus, and his work with the Yeezy line should only add to his already astounding resume as one of the most influential footwear designers ever. See a closer look at the adidas Yeezy 451 sole below.The translucent midfoot stripe that’s proliferated through the ranks of the 350 as of late stands out from the rest of the upper due to its tightly-knit texture, and a single thin line of red stitching reaches across the heel tab for a clever nod to the original “Pirate Black” colorway. High-vis reflective material is woven into the laces/doused across the Three Stripes graphic on the sockliner, and a semi-translucent black midsole packed full of Boost cushioning completes the look. As mentioned above, these simple-yet-effective adidas Yeezys are scheduled for a June 22nd release date. They’ll also be priced at the silhouette’s standard $220 MSRP.
