UPDATE 9/5: Jordan Brand reveals its latest collaboration with Carmelo Anthony and fashion brand Rag & Bone. The Capsule Collection is highlighted with two colorways of the Air Jordan 20 Flyknit as well as matching apparel.
Rather than choosing an earlier retro model, the duo decided on the Air Jordan XX, a silhouette they both agreed is underrated. “I think that it was a bit ahead of its time, but the shoe was always cool,” says Anthony. “This is a shoe I liked when I saw it, but it didn’t get its fair moment. I wanted to bring it back, rework it and re-introduce it to the market.”
Nike is getting ready for the colder months by making some of their models winter-ready with a waterproof build.
The latest silhouette to receive the treatment is the Nike EXP-X14 that comes dressed in tones of Grey. It features a waterproof upper with minimal Swoosh and EXP-X14 branding atop its signature cushioned sole.

The recent release of a Nike Air Max 90 “Viotech 2.0” caused quite a stir in the world of sneakers, as the punchy color palette that originally debuted on the Nike Dunk Low in 2002 in has been enjoying a resurgence in popularity as of late thanks to frequent sightings on the feet of one Virgil Abloh. Now, things are set to get wild once again as it’s been revealed that the AM90 will receive an original “Viotech” makeover as well. The Tinker Hatfield-designed classics have frequently served as a versatile canvas for material and colorway experimentation, so the beloved scheme takes to its new home like it’s belonged there all along. The purple that these Nike shoes draw their moniker from appears on the mudguard, while the rest of the suede upper features blue, red, orange, and teal tones. The tongue, throat, and laces then tie everything together both literally and figuratively, thanks to a stark-yet-simple grey color and a black leather tongue badge. A white/orange midsole and multi-color outsole complete the look. The model in the pictures above and below is wearing one of each “Viotech” Air Max, but fear not: this isn’t a mismatched pair, and both the left/right shoes will indeed be the same.

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.

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.
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.

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.
Another colorful Air Max 270 React set to drop this week.
Nike introduced one of their most comfortable sneakers this summer – the Air Max 270 React – which combines Nike’s first lifestyle Air unit, the 270, with the brand’s softest, smoothest and most resilient foam, Nike React, to form a new articulation of Air Max.
A handful of colorful Air Max 270 Reacts have already hit the market, including the beloved “Bauhaus” colorway, and now Nike has plans to drop an equally eye-catching “Electro Green” joint.
