Nike’s Roshe line has been a favorite by both the casual sneakerhead and the hardcore, but has the countless number of releases and new silhouettes that have dropped since passed them by?
The Nike Roshe One is about to be celebrate 4 years since its debut back in 2012. There is no doubt that this sneaker has been one of the most successful and relevant releases that Nike has come out with in the last decade. I can only imagine the amount of units Nike has been able to push. As soon as the Roshe hype caught fire, there was nothing that could stop it.
I still remember when I saw the Roshe One – when it still called Roshe Run – for the first time. It seemed a bit “different” to me. The midsole appeared to be to plain and sort of generic, while the all-mesh looked kind of cheap and flimsy. Most of us have been used to seeing uppers with some sort of structure or build to them, but the Roshe is basically a sock-like upper glued on to a sole unit. I was very iffy the minute I saw the shoe, but then, I put the shoe on. I had no words to explain what my feet and I were feeling. Up until that point, the Roshe was the most comfortable thing that I have ever put on my feet!
Before I put on a pair of the Roshes, I was used to wearing heavier and less comfortable sneakers such as Jordan retros and heavier sneakers with chunky midsoles and bulkier uppers. Putting on a pair of the Roshes for the very first time felt like I experienced some type of revelation that seriously made me contemplate getting rid all of my current sneakers, and starting a new set of footwear that consisted strictly of the Roshes.
The Nike Air Max 95 “Day and Night” is an upcoming premium variation of the runner this season, defined by a split makeup to exude the “Day and Night” theme. Boasting a divided layout with the outer lateral section covered in dark blue with gold speckling to evoke the nighttime sky and stars, the inner lateral section is shaded in light blue suede to reflect the daytime sky respectively. Finally, the runner is topped off with a white midsole featuring navy in the interior of the Air Max unit, as well as a milky translucent outsole.
Retailing for $160, look for the Nike Air Max 95 “Day and Night” at select Nike stores and online soon. Always keep it locked to KicksOnFire for the latest in sneaker news, release dates and where to purchase your favorite kicks.
Following a report of an upcoming Air Jordan 4 “Neon” inspired by the OG Air Max 95 “Neon,” new rumors have now reveled a projected release date for the silhouette. Expected to debut in spring 2020, the model’s makeup is suggested to reflect the Air Max 95’s theme of “Cool Grey/Volt-Wolf Grey-Anthracite”, as shown in the rendering above. Stay tuned for the reveal.
No images of the Air Jordan 4 Neon have leaked yet, but above you will find a rendering by House of Heat to give you an idea of what the Air Jordan 4 Neon could end up looking like. All we know is that the Air Jordan 4 Neon is expected to come with Nike Air branding on the heel and dressed in a color scheme meant to mimic that of the Air Max 95 Neon.
Following the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 4, the Travis Scott x Air Jordan 6 “Medium Olive” consists as the next collaborative Air Jordan silhouette made in conjunction with rapper Travis Scott. Covered in an official mix of Medium Olive, Black, Sail, and University Red, the sneaker dons an olive nubuck/suede construction to evoke military appeal, while black detailing and red accents all over provide a solid complementing palette. Other details include a side pocket on the collar, semi-translucent heel tabs and Nike Air/Cactus Jack branding throughout. Finally, it’s all adhered atop a sail midsole and translucent outsole.
The Air Jordan 12 will be returning this year in a new colorway as part of Jordan Brand’s Fall 2019 collection. Boasting a premium build with black tumbled leather and blue adorning the textured suede overlay across its forefoot, miniature branded side panels and the entire rubber outsole — it’s also noted that the two-tone finish is executed in a similar layout like the black/red Air Jordan 12 “Flu Game.”
The Nike Air Max 2006 continues headstrong into 2019 with its many inspirations; while tapping analog tech quite a few times, Beaverton is now heading just a bit farther into the future to celebrate one of 2006’s coveted notables. Taking on the likeness of the era’s “One Time Only” scheme — save for its 360 sole unit — the pair dons colors equally vibrant though without the age most have seen presently. Baby blue hits comprise the majority of the mudguard with segments of bright yellows and sultry purples intermingling much like the aforementioned. Swooshes as well as the forefoot constructions are left mostly neutral in departure, though its energy is one wholeheartedly connected. Grab a detailed look at the pair right below and expect to see it hitting select retailers and Nike.com very soon.
If you missed out on the Thursday morning launch at Supreme, the trio of SB Dunks will be available on one more occasion this Saturday, September 14th. Nike SNKRS will drop each individual pair at 10am ET for $110, although it’s very likely that pairs will disappear in an instant. Possibly inspired by the series of Air Force 1 Mid “Jewel” releases from the mid-late 1990s, these SB Dunks are quite the departure from the famed elephant printed iterations that now have become one of the most coveted and high-priced items in the sneaker market. Be sure to fire up your SNKRS app on the morning of September 14th for a shot at these two-toned Dunks.
The latest Supreme x Nike SB Dunk Low collab is slated to launch on the SNKRS app this Saturday for a retail price of $110 each. All three pairs are currently available on the resale site StockX with bids starting at $200 each.
Nike could be expanding its Kobe Protro line with the Kobe 5. According to @kb824 on Instagram, the popular “Chaos” colorway of Kobe Bryant’s fifth Nike signature sneaker is arriving this December.
The original “Chaos” Kobe 5 dropped in 2010 to much fanfare, thanks to its colorway inspired by Batman’s arch nemesis, the Joker. Pairs have held their value over time too with listings currently at $600 on Flight Club. The inspiration was also used earlier this year on the “Mamba Mentality” Kyrie 5 to celebrate Mamba Day 2019, but this would be the first time the colorway gets a true retro release.
Like past Protro releases, expect the exterior to look identical to its predecessor, but feature modern performance upgrades. Stay tuned as more information becomes available regarding this potential holiday release. The pair is currently rumored to drop on Dec. 26.
NOTE: The pair pictured above is the original “Chaos” Kobe 5.
The range includes four vibrant colorways of the Zoom Kobe 4 Protro, a sleek and low-cut silhouette that first debuted back in 2008, and today sits as one of the most popular styles in Kobe’s long-running Nike line. Each sneaker features a slick patent leather- and carbon fiber-accented low upper with sharp “8″ and “24″ details on the heel. There is nothing quiet about the colors within the pack, including such Nike-named shades as “court purple,” “team orange,” “fir,” and “hyper jade.” Lastly, the sneaker is rounded out with the Mamba and Undefeated logos at the tongue and a glossy Swoosh on the side. Sure, you could play a game of pickup ball in these but sneakers this flashy are made for stunting.
Kobe is one of the most accomplished NBA stars of all time, so it’s easy to see why Nike is still putting out sneakers that bear his name. Hell, the fact that Mamba Day still exists is proof of Bryant’s legacy and the still-burning desire fans have for Kobe-affiliated merch and sneakers. In fact, a big-deal collaboration with a hot streetwear shop (especially one that looks this good) is all the proof you needed to know that his signature shoes can still move the needle.
Nike is paying tribute to China’s space program this season with the aptly titled ‘Space Capsule Collection‘. Celebrating twenty years since the launch of the Shenzhou 1, the first unmanned launch into space, it was only through this breakthrough that the Red Dragon were able to send their first man into the cosmos in 2003. Comprising of a total of five sneakers, the pack is truly out of this world!
The first shoe to feature in the collection is the Air Max 720, which is available in unisex sizes. Featuring a black engineered mesh upper, a striking fire graphic hits the toe box to represent a rocket blasting off into deep space. The second pair is the P-6000 that’s actually available in two colourways inspired by space suits.

Jordan Brand’s corralling of Georgetown as a longtime beneficiary of the Jumpman is one of the stranger sponsorships in college athletics. You have to take into account of the Georgetown-UNC rivalry in which MJ hit his now legendary shot – one that might just be the reason for his now infamous confidence that carried him en route to becoming the greatest basketball player the planet has ever seen. Still, seeing MJ’s finger prints on a rival’s uniforms is a bit strange. Today we see the Air Jordan XX8 dressed in a near-anonymous navy blue. It’s only when the shroud is pulled over that you see the trademarked ‘G’ logo and the cursive Hoyas script on the icy outsole allowing you to know this pair’s PE origins. Grab them on eBay today.
The Air Jordan XX8 SE has been available in plenty of camo colorways during the sneaker’s run. Swerving around all those retail entries is this pair made exclusively for Maya Moore, an official Jordan Brand family member who currently players for the Minnesota Lynx. The shoes feature a snowy blue palette and the requisite Maya Moore logo embroidered across the tongue. Get another quick shot of Maya Moore showing off her special Air Jordans below and stick with us for updates on what sort of PE heat she’s got access to.
One of the finest and most established members of the Nike family, Rei Kawakubo’s Comme Des Garçons imprint dives further into the footwear brand’s many icons; while often donning neutrals to runners and most notably giving the coveted Air Max 180 a hot pink makeover, the institution is now throwing the Air Jordan 1 into biker territory, roughing it up with various metallic embellishments under their Homme Plus line. Taking on two different colorways — one a triple black and the next triple white — both pairs largely let their modifications do the talking; straps, which wrap around the ankle of the shoe, boast rings and silver studs in a form not too unlike that of a double rider jacket while tongues elongate just slightly as if mimicking that of a motorcycle boot. Overlays elsewhere are dyed in their shade of choice, only following theme along the eyelets which swap out for the same shining hardware at both the top and bottom of the lace unit. Grab a detailed look at both right here and epxect to find them in pre-launch quantities at DSM E-Shop and retail locations come September 14th.
Jordan Brand has yet again found a way to reimagine another retro silhouette, this time taking aim at the Air Jordan 5 Low in the “Black Grape” colorway. This version of the Jordan 5 has been reworked to serve as a golf shoe, featuring green-friendly spikes on the bottoms for traction.
This updated model will be joining the Air Jordan 11 Low Golf model that dropped earlier this summer as yet another piece the brand adds to its growing Retro golf shoe collection. With Michael Jordan being known as an avid golfer as well as basketball legend, this likely won’t be the last Air Jordan that we see repurposed as a golf shoe.
With no official release date or retail price yet, the “Black Grape” Air Jordan 5 Low Golf is expected to release during the summer of 2020 according to @soleheatonfeet.
