The classic Nike Air Trainer Max from 1991 is back for another retro run this fall, and today we get a look at an all-new colorway in a clean blend of white, black, and grey. Almost a total flip of the original black and white colorway, this new version features a white leather and mesh upper with black accents and a light grey outsole for a clean new look to the Bo Jackson-worn training shoe. Vintage trainer fans should be on the lookout for the Air Trainer Max 91 at select Nike Sportswear retailers soon.
It wasn’t too long ago that Nike Sportswear was going absolutely crazy with the Bo Jackson retro treatments in honor of one of the biggest what if’s in sports history. Had Bo Jackson not suffered a career ending hip injury he could’ve been one of the most dominant figures in not one, but two sports as he was an All-Star in baseball and a Pro-Bowler in football. Perhaps the most iconic image of Bo Jackson is his time in the silver and back running over people as a member of the Oakland Raiders. Today we get a look at the latest Bo-themed retro with the return of his Nike Air Trainer Max 91 in a premium black leather. The Nike Air Trainer Max ’91 features a construction indicative of its early 90s inception, as premium leather panels drape the side panels with added micro-perforations to help keep the toecap ventilated. A unique nylon strap adds lockdown support featuring vintage ‘Nike’ branding in a contrasting white. What do you think of this Bo Jackson retro? Check out more photos below and grab your pair today via Oneness for $110 USD.
Since kicking off with quite an amped announcement backed by newly added athlete Zion Williamson, the Air Jordan 27 has had a lot going for it with vibrant schemes matching its more futuristic designs and a Harlem-located event only adding to the buzz. With its striking “Blue Void” colorway closing out the month of September just days ago, the silhouette has already established plans for the near future with its more classic “Bred” scheme leading the way for October. Though its palettes are iconic to the Jumpman line-up itself, it doesn’t heavily borrow from past notables like the AJ1; leaning more towards the neutral ends of the spectrum, the upper’s mix of smooth overlays and almost translucent mesh stay a blinding white shade. Color blocking along the medial as well the rear, which bleeds from its ankle and slightly atop the tread, are dressed almost entirely in a glossy black finish; toe supports topped with signature iconography match just like the entire lace unit but mostly in tone. Deep reds, the most standout of the mix, are dispersed sparingly, only lending a hand to the various branding and piping seen at their usual spots. Grab an official look at the AJ34 “Bred” right here and expect to see it at Nike.com as well as select retailers on October 10th.
The futuristic upper of the Air Max Deluxe has been met with lukewarm reception since its rerelease this past year, though in its Skepta collaboration and OG colorways, the model is slowly rising the ranks of the famed line-up, cementing itself as a solid choice for even the most nuanced of wardrobes. In its upcoming “Celestial Teal” scheme, the model takes on a kitting that plays on notable space-themed media found predominantly in the 90s as well as the saturated tones associated with the era’s most popular styles. Mostly one-noted in its arrangement, the blue tones are spread throughout the entire profile with the mudguard donning a glossy finish as well as a deeper shade. Lining and the sole unit take on a much darker black, though it blends in seamlessly amongst the rest of the palette and adds another connection to the final frontier. At a retail of $200 USD, this Air Max Deluxe is available now at the retailers listed below.
Since first releasing in 1999, Nike’s Air Max Deluxe has always boasted an ahead-of-its time look, due to its soundwave-inspired upper, synthetic materials, and swooping midfoot cage. It’s been enjoying a resurgence in popularity as of late thanks to several colorways — both new and old — dropping as well as a “Never Sleep On Tour” collab with Skepta, and now the latest Deluxe to appear is this ultra-futuristic combination of “Laser Fuschia” and “Regency Purple.” The shimmering textured upper features a combo of the two colorful metallic tones for a look that sits somewhere between space age and South Beach, while hot pink accents on the Air Max unit and branding provide a pop of bright contrast.
The aforementioned black plastic overlays then arrive to rein in the colorful upper just enough and complete the look. Check out a full set of official images below, and look for a Nike.com release early 2019, complete with a retail price of $180 USD.
The Adidas Yeezy Boost 700 is being released in a new “Teal Blue” colorway for fall, according to Yeezy Mafia.
While official imagery and details on the style have yet to drop, the popular Twitter account has leaked purported photos. The silhouette is designed with a medium gray base and darker overlays. The toe box is dark teal, and the bottom outsole is made of tan rubber gum. Neon orange lacing provides a contrast of colors.
ike many other Yeezy styles, the sneaker features Boost cushioning, which is widely regarded as one of Adidas’ most comfortable construction models.
The Yeezy Boost 700 is one of Kanye West’s best-selling styles with a retro-inspired look that complements the popular dad shoes. The shoe’s original colorway, “Wave Runner,” is reportedly getting rereleased in August in full family sizing. The drop will be the fourth of the rapper-designer’s “Wave Runner” silhouette.
Having a similar style as the Yeezy Boost 750, we now take time to compare both models to see what you guys think which was the better release.
Shown here are both Black colorways of the Yeezy Boost 750 and Nike Air Fear of God 1. While the 750s come with Boost cushioning, the Air FOG 1s are equipped with a large visible Zoom Air bag in the heel. Both include zipper placements with the 750s using it on the side panel and the Air FOG 1s on the back heels.
Comparing both pairs, which would you guys say was the better release? Cast your vote below.
Eddie Cruz and James Bond’s UNDEFEATED has created some of the most memorable Nike Air Max 2020 Brand collaborations of all time,There’s an airy mix of platinum and sail tones, a sure-to-be-vivid combo of black, anthracite, and rush pink, and a blue/grey/purple pair that may very well give off heavy retro vibes. An arrival date of spring Air Max 2020 has been reported for this trifecta of new Nike shoes, so stay tuned for more info as it becomes available. While you wait, be sure to check out UNDEFEATED’s upcoming Nike Kobe 4 Protro in Bucks colors as well. UPDATE: The UNDEFEATED x Nike Air Max 90s released via Nike SNKRS Pass on September 17th, 2019. A wider release date has not yet been confirmed, and now the West Coast-based footwear masterminds and the Swoosh Brand are cookin’ up once again, as they’ve got a three-pack of fresh takes on the Nike Air Max 90 en route. Although official images of the collaboration have not yet been revealed (the photos both above and below are mock-ups), it appears as if each pair will head in a drastically different direction with its palette.
Despite seemingly being out of place, the Nike Air Max 2000 strongly fit within the vibrant palettes: a dark knit with red accents creates a look ever-aggressive while the much lighter iteration sports the reverse with bright white threads replacing the darker tint and bubbles swapping out for the bold warm tone. Benassi JDI slides dose in a much more casual, in-between element to the overall collection, adding in similar presentations to the duo of Air Force 1 Lows. Seeing its standard design and Jester XX modifications — along with a divergent high-top — the Black-dressed pair and wild recreation don connecting collage prints across their entire heel counter: these feature graffiti stylings and retro imagery in a form that affectionately calls to the 2000s. Its higher sibling is much more simple despite its mismatched motif, with red or black colored soles and straps outfitting a white leather of scratched distressing. Air Flightposites are more true to themselves with armored silver uppers and shiny black top lines, while bottoms tack on color in its gradient of deep purple to light blue. More imaginative than the rest, the Shox BB4 emblazons with a mosaic of the nighttime cityscape along its profile with saturated grape tones and matte nubucks ensuring a fair bit of balance. The apparel pack as well as half the footwear range — namely the Air Force 1 Low, Air Force 1 Jester XX, VaporMax Flyknit 3, and the Benassi JDI Slide — will begin to release throughout Greater China on August 8th. A follow-up drop including the Air Max 2000, Air Flightposite, and Air Force 1 High will then go down on August 31st.
Michael Jordan’s love of the spotlight during his playing career was well-known, and outside of his hometown United Center, nowhere provided a brighter one than marquee Madison Square Garden matchups against the New York Knickerbockers. Now, Jordan Brand is paying homage to MJ’s longtime adversary with the new Air Jordan 3 “Knicks.” The shoe features a recognizable white, blue, and orange color scheme that’s perfectly in line with the Knicks’ uniforms, which is then accented with signature elephant print on the heel, eyestays, and toebox. Although the outwardly visible parts of these Air Jordans are undeniably striking, the most noticeable detail arrives on the inner tongues, both of which boast a “4/8/88” tag. This nods to the date of MJ’s “Virus Game,” during which he gave the Knicks 40 points under the bright lights of MSG, all while wrestling with a troublesome stomach bug. A thoughtful piece of history that’s sure to delight Bulls and Knicks fans alike — albeit for vastly different reasons — you can expect these AJ3s to hit the retailers listed below on September 14th for $190 USD.
New York Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia is playing out the final campaign of his HOF career, and Jordan Brand has ensured that the lefty legend’s on-mound footwear has stood out with several special PEs over the course of the season, two of which are these unique Air Jordan 3 cleats. The first pair’s inspiration is obvious: it’s all about the Yankees, with a navy blue/grey upper, signature elephant print detailing, chrome accents, and Sabathia’s #52 embroidered on the left tongue. The second pair reaches much farther back, drawing from Sabathia’s early days/team colors at Vallejo High School in California. Inspired by varsity jackets, it features a red faux-wool upper with cream accents, a chenelle #9 patch on the heel, and “Sabathia” in chenelle script on the left tongue. However, the most meaningful embellishment appears on the medial midfoot, which presents a list of coaches and adult figures that played an important role in the pitcher’s life. The navy pair was sported during a September 12th away game against the Detroit Tigers, while the red pair was donned during an August 24th game against the LA Dodgers. Sabathia also received an Air Jordan 11 PE cleat earlier this season after reaching the 3,000 strikeout milestone, and we’ll likely spot him in even more special footwear should the Yankees make a deep postseason run this fall. Of course, Sabathia might face some friendly on-field footwear competition from up-and-down Yankees outfielder Clint Frazier — a man who just might be the MLB’s custom footwear king — but as a long-time Jordan Brand athlete, he’s always looking crisp when he toes the rubber. Check out both pairs below, and for more special Jordan Brand shoes, take a look at a football-inspired Air Jordan 12 created for the Jumpman’s NFL athletes as well.
Zion Williamson was college basketball’s brightest star by a long shot last season, and now as the #1 overall pick prepares to commence his NBA career with the New Orleans Pelicans, his game-worn college shoes are selling for five-figure sums. At a recent auction, the former Duke Blue Devils forward’s size 15 PE-edition Nike Kyrie 5s sold for an astounding $19,680, a whopping price point seeing as his legacy is still in its early stages. Williamson sported the special makeup of fellow former Duke hooper Kyrie Irving‘s signature Nike shoes during a November 19th, 2018 Maui Invitational game against the San Diego State Aztecs, and they feature special details like a Duke logo on each heel, a black/white/blue color scheme to match the squad’s alternate jerseys, and speckled detailing on the midsole. A sample tag on the inner collar and photo verification (both pictured below) then prove their authenticity. Williamson’s collegiate footwear history is the stuff of legend, as he memorably injured his knee ripping through a pair of Paul George‘s Nike PG 2.5s during a game against rival North Carolina, a shocking moment that lead Nike to craft an extra-reinforced Kyrie 4 specifically made to withstand his bruising-yet-ultra-athletic style of play. He’s since signed with Jordan Brand, so his sneaker story is sure to be front and center in this upcoming NBA season — even more so after this high-dollar sale.
The All-Star festivities are over, and the playoff push begins. Paul George and the Indiana Pacers are still vying for a spot in the Eastern Conference’s post-season, and PG13 will have a boost from his first ever signature model with Nike Basketball in the Nike PG 1, designed by veteran Tony Hardman. The sleek silhouette debuts at retailers this weekend with the head-turning premium colorway known as the Nike PG 1 Pre-Heat, slated to arrive on February 25th. Today we get an official preview of the upcoming release, as the predominantly black upper is accented by Metallic Silver Swoosh branding on the side panel, but with a twist of iridescent Multi-Color for a unique aesthetic. The outsole boasts a traction pattern like you’ve never seen before, complete with huge Zoom Air pods on the forefoot section for an explosive first step. The icy bottom alternates between accents of Nike’s signature Volt and a flashy red, while Paul’s new ‘PG’ logo is featured throughout. Get a detailed look at these spendy PEs here, and keep it locked for all your sneaker-related Zion news.

Cristiano Ronaldo‘s relationship with Nike has resulted in a number of noteworthy sneakers from two special Patchwork colorways of the Air Max 97 to an incredibly impressive gold and white Air Force 1.
The 2019 CrossFit Games are right around the corner, and Nike has prepared for the testosterone-fueled festivities in cheeky fashion, dressing their new Metcon 5+ in a “Banned”-style color scheme. Although the shoe may look like a simple white/red/black makeup at first, there’s some history here. When the first Nike Metcon released in 2016, Reebok — the official CrossFit sponsor — quickly implemented apparel/equipment regulations, ensuring that CrossFit athletes could not wear Nike shoes during competitions. In response, Nike released a black and red “Banned” colorway, a clever two-headed nod to both the restrictions themselves and the marketing campaign that first helped the Air Jordan 1 become so iconic back in 1985. However, 2019 is a new day, and the new Metcon 5+ offers up a more affable style, adding an AJ1 “Banned”-style plus symbol to the heel of each shoe for a nod to brand history and relaxed rules. The laces feature an all-over geographic coordinate print for a nod to the 2019 Games’ home base of Madison, Wisconsin, and, apart from all the meaningful detailing, the shoes offer the low-to-the ground support and stability that have made them so popular with professional exercisers and weekend warriors alike. Enjoy a full set of images below, and expect a Nike.com release this August.Now CR7 and the Swoosh are shifting their attention toward training with this brand new Nike Free x Metcon silhouette. Combining the flexibility and comfort of Nike Free with the durability of the Nike Metcon, it is everything that one of the world’s top footballers needs in a training sneaker. Ronaldo opted to keep the color scheme clean and simple with an angelic white to provide a fresh and light feeling that embodies his unparalleled energy in the training room. Ice Blue – Ronaldo’s favorite color – provides a pop of color, on the TPU Cage and heel clip while a new cage logo inspired by an ancient Portuguese navigational tool honors the Portuguese national’s heritage. CR7 branding rounds out this selection on the heel and the tongue, while his signature comes dipped in gold on the insole. Enjoy a first look here and expect the Nike Free CR7 x Metcon to arrive on Nike.com on May 26th.
