Air Jordan 3 True Blue With Nike Air Releasing On Black Friday
Black Friday is always a time to expect brands to come forward with some of the best releases of the year. Sole Collector reports that Jordan Brand won’t disappoint this Black Friday 2016, as a retailer has confirmed with them that the Air Jordan 3 “True Blue”, complete with Nike Air on the heel, will release to the masses. This is exciting news for Jordan fanatics considering Nike Air hasn’t appeared on this particular colorway since the original release in 1988 (as seen in the photo above), because the 2003, 2009, and 2011 Retro versions all had that original logo on the heel-tab. Stay tuned for more updates, but keep the True Blue 3s in mind as we approach Black Friday 2016.
The Spring Will Bring Us This Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit Low In University Red
The Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit is one of Nike’s most popular silhouettes at the moment ever since it arrived on the scene a few weeks ago. So it makes perfect sense for Nike to give us more colorways of the new lightweight lifestyle shoe.
One of those new colorways that will be arriving at Nike Sportswear retailers later this Spring is this University Red option that you see above. Coming in a low-top cut that is better suited for the warm weather of Spring and Summer, this Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit features a full University Red upper with Flyknit dominating most of the shoe and leather detailing landing on the Swoosh and heel tab. Serving as a touch of contrast are white hits on the tongue branding and midsole/outsole with translucent hits on the outsole.
What are your thoughts on this Spring colorway of the new and improved Air Force 1?
Nike Training has just unleashed their latest high-performance model, the Zoom Train Toranada. Featuring a midfoot strap, you can definitely sense the DNA of the brand’s classic ’90s trainers within the Toranada, but the shoe is designed with all of today’s top tech like an Engineered Mesh upper, visible Zoom Air cushioning in the heel, and Flywire cables for added support. With an excellent blend of style and performance, the Zoom Train Toranada is available now in its three debut colorways seen here at Nike Training retailers and Nike.com.
Nike Air Huarache International Premium Cloud And Sky Pack
Nike brought back the Huarache International in style by re-issuing the original colorways while introducing this premium tier of selections playfully dubbed the “Cloud And Sky” Pack. Featured here is the classic silhouette from 1994 with tonal Blue Lagoon and Wolf Grey uppers, speckled midsoles, and lifestyle-friendly gum soles for that elevated look. This approach isn’t quite new, because we’ve already seen Nike go these lengths for the Air Huarache, Air Huarache Light, and pretty much every retro runner born inthe 1990s, but seeing that the aesthetic is a good match, why stop? Peep the Nike Huarache International Premium “Cloud And Sky” Pack and grab these Huaraches now at select shops.
The Nike Air Huarache Ultra Gets Bold For The Spring
It’s only a matter of time before most of our posts consist of bold and vibrant sneakers that are ideal for the upcoming Spring season. Ladies, if you’re looking to stay ahead of them game, take a look at these three bright new colorways of the Nike Air Huarache Ultra.
Coming in either purple, pink or orange, all three pairs are said to be inspired by the colors you see in the sunset. The mesh upper is accompanied by the hyperfuse hits placed on the toecap of the shoe. Opting to go for the monochromatic look, all three pairs will come with matching colored laces, Nike branding, lining, heel cage and sole unit. Said to already be arriving internationally, expect these to arrive stateside in the near future.
The Life: Walking Around The Riviera In The Nike Flyknit Chukka Golf
Last week, Nike Golf unveiled their new initiative for the modern golfer and it was definitely an eye-opener. The two-day event in Los Angeles included a presentation featuring Nike Golf’s up-and-coming athletes as well as a trip to the Riviera Country Club to check out a practice round at the Northern Trust Open. As somebody who grew up watching the buttoned-up, argyle-wearing, ivy cap styles of the late 80s to the ultra baggy polos and pants that Tiger Woods got away with during his early run, seeing the fit evolve to athletic, slim and sleek was great to see.
As many people would argue, the style of golf has always catered to the older set and that doesn’t really appeal to the younger generation. Like, at all. It takes Nike randomly dropping a Jordan retro with golf spikes to get people in the sneaker community talking, but even if the shoes are there, the apparel just doesn’t match. It is something Nike has slowly tried to get on board with since their stable of golf athletes is skewing younger and last week’s unveiling was the first big step to that.
One of the first things that I got to see because I came to the presentation early and totally walked in on stuff that I wasn’t supposed to see was the Nike MM Fly Blade Polo and Nike MM Fly Roll Polo. The shirt design feels like a modern polo that you would see at the mall, but the materials are definitely made for competition. But the biggest aesthetic changes comes in the form of the collar, which is a lot shorter and slimmer than what you’re used to seeing on the course. Trying them on for the first time, I agree with the sentiment that it didn’t feel like I was wearing a polo but rather a Nike shirt made for competition. Personally, I can’t see myself wearing the Hyperwarm tights because they’re just a bad fit for me, but for those who swear by it, I can’t wait to see the looks on PGA Tour officials when somebody tries to rock them on the course.
But that doesn’t mean that everything Nike had out there was just purely made with the world’s best golfers in mind. For hacks like myself who want to be able to keep it simple and wear the same thing we had on the course into the club house and maybe for a night out to dinner, Nike had several pieces that look straight out their Sportswear division, including possibly the greatest golf jacket I have ever seen. Dubbed the Enemies Of The Course collection, the print inside the jacket is so good, I would totally consider wearing it inside out like I was the Fresh Prince.
Of course, the highlight for us was the Nike Flyknit Chukka Golf. I admittedly was not a fan of the original Flyknit Chukka because it just felt too flimsy to ever be a viable piece of footwear so there was skepticism going in. As somebody who loves Flyknit Kobes in both high-cut and low-cut, the mid just didn’t make sense to me. And then there’s the precedent set by the Nike TW 15 with its Flyweave upper that featured that right level of comfort and support for my needs and it was a low-cut.
Walking around the Riviera in the Nike Flyknit Chukka Golf alleviated a lot of my fears the more time I got with them. First of all, the NikeSkin layer that you see wrapping around the bottom half of the upper is not only waterproof but also provides a level of support that simply isn’t there on a regular Chukka. Now I can’t speak for the shoe if it’s pouring rain, but it was smart on Nike’s part not to completely cover the upper in NikeSkin because that still allows the Flyknit to flexible and breathable on the top half. It’s a nitpick I had with the Kobe 9 and 10 in that they were not true Flyknit shoes; the Chukkas with NikeSkin gives us the best of both worlds.
As for the sole, it’s an evolution of Nike’s Free-inspired movement that started with again, Tiger’s shoes. But what makes this better and more suited for the casual player like myself is that I can easily wear this both on and off the course. With a post-round cleaning, they are basically Flyknit Chukkas with better support and perfect for the modern day sneakerhead who might wear slimmer pants or joggers with their kicks. I’ve even worn them to get my wisdom teeth removed and nobody wondered why I was wearing golf shoes.
My time at the Riviera was really like a dream come true. We got to walk around the course at a very leisurely place since it wasn’t open to the public and watch old mainstays like Vinjay Singh and Fred Couples do their thing on the range and on the course. I even got a chance to step inside the Nike Golf Tour Truck (no pictures inside sadly) which is where the Nike Golf athletes are able to make adjustments to their gear on the fly. Literally thousands of dollars worth of club heads, shafts and other gear can be found in that truck in all sorts of configurations designed to fit each player’s needs. I literally geeked out seeing the folder that was just marked “Tiger” nonchalantly as if he wasn’t the GOAT. And of course, the biggest kick I got was seeing tour pros, media types and people that work at the Riviera just flock to the free In-N-Out truck because there was free In-N-Out. Yeah, even though I’m surrounded by the best golfers in the world and Nike Golf is out there making a big statement, the world stops for In-N-Out. All is right in the world.
Nike’s new Flyknit edition of the Air Force 1 is ready to head right into summer with colorways like this vibrant look in “University Red”. The most ideal version of the timeless silhouette ever for summer, the traditionally bulky Air Force 1 is transformed into a light and breathable sneaker thanks to the Flyknit upper and retooled ‘Ultra’ sole unit. You’ll be able to find this low-top AF1 featuring a mix of red and black Flyknit arriving at select Nike Sportswear retailers later this spring.
Nike Prepares March Madness Kobe 11 Elite PEs For Duke, Kentucky, Oregon, and Michigan State
The NCAA Tournament, also known as “March Madness”, is just week away, and Nike Basketball already has prepared some awesome team-based Kobe 11 Elite PEs for four schools that are surely to make noise in the one-and-done tournament. Kentucky, Duke, Oregon, and Michigan State will all add in these Flyknit-based Kobe 11s in their sneaker rotations as they strive for the top prize in college hoops. Each colorway features the school logos on the insoles, while an identical Flyknit weave is used on the upper. We don’t expect these to hit retail, so keep your eyes peeled for these four teams to head into battle with these player-only kicks.
Bright Sunset Colors Land On The Nike Huarache Ultra
The newest Huarache option for the ladies is getting ready for summer with a trio of vibrant tonal colorways all ready to shine all summer. The bright purple, pink, and orange colorways for the re-imagined modern Air Huarache should have you thinking of a colorful summertime sunset, and pining for those warm summer nights ahead. These three Nike Huarache Ultra colorways are arriving now in Asia, and should be dropping in the USA later this spring.
Aaron Gordon Destroys Nike Shoes While Performing An Insane Dunk
Coming in second place never felt so good. The Orlando Magic’s Aaron Gordon has deservedly gotten a boost in reputation after a dunk contest for the ages and his insane high-flying slams are now translating in-game too. Gordon recently put on an acrobatic display against the lowly Philadelphia 76ers with one minor mishap – his Nike Hyperrev 2016s fell apart as a result. Perhaps the model couldn’t withstand the altitude. Check out a few photos of his destroyed kicks and watch a video of the dunk that could’ve done it below.
Nike Evolves Skate Shoe Design With Eric Kostons New Signature Shoe
After nearly three years in rotation, the Nike SB Koston 2 is ready to take a back seat as the legendary Frostman is getting a new signature shoe from Nike this March. This time around, the Swoosh brings forth proven design elements and combines it with newly discovered cues – namely the sock-like ankle cuff that’s been prevalent in its football boots as of late. Dubbed the Nike SB Hyperfeel Koston 3, this new signature shoe promises the superior fit boasted by the Nike Flyknit Hyperfeel that debuted in 2014 and the unparalleled performance that riders have enjoyed over the last few years. No word on if a take-down version (aka a version without the cuff) will be available, but Nike SB has plans on launching the shoe this March after it hosts a shindig this weekend in Los Angeles. Get a full detailed photo gallery ahead and let us know if you think this is the most innovative skate shoe of all-time.
To follow-up on a recent color block iteration, the iconic Nike Internationalist is treated in Obsidian for its latest finish to start off the early portion of 2016.
The popular retro runner essentially flaunts a premium build with tonal suede covering the majority of its upper. Furthermore, matching leather accents are provided by the signature Swoosh branding and heel tab, while the subdued tone is continued on its tpu heel counter, laces and tongue tab.
Additionally reinforced with stitching throughout, the low-top is offset by a clean white midsole unit and grey outsole to create an aesthetically pleasing colorway. Find a pair at select Nike stores overseas now.
Alongside the recent Pure Platinum iteration, the Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Moire is treated in another tonal finish, this time flaunting an understated colorway of navy.
Unlike its traditional profile, this modernized silhouette is defined by its one-piece seamless upper, which bears perforations throughout to allow maximum breathability, as well as weighing much less to ensure a comfortable fit.
Tonal synthetics are applied on the model to further signify its notable elements such as the Swoosh branding, mudguard and heel badge. All resting atop a matching sole unit with the visible air bubble component in the heel, the sneaker is rounded out with tonal laces and branding on the tongue.
You can purchase this latest variation of the silhouette at select Nike retailers overseas now.
Supreme is wasting no time in 2016 as far as collaborations go and it seems that we’ve gotten our first look at their next project with Nike.
After collaborating with Jordan Brand last year and releasing three different colorways of the Air Jordan 5, in 2016 they will be linking up with familiar partner Nike on a silhouette that we don’t see very often, the Nike Air Max 98. There is rumors that there will be a total of four colorways set to release later this year possibly beginning in the Spring. Two have already surfaced, one is done in grey and the other in black while both feature snakeskin detailing on the toe, mudguard and ankle.
