Gold Highlights The Nike Cortez

Nike Cortez Nike Cortez 1 Nike Cortez 2

The iconic Nike Cortez receives another standout finish this season in a simple colorway of white with golden details.

Listed as a women’s iteration, this particular pair is comprised of premium leather across the majority of its upper. The pristine tone is essentially doused across the component, which flows towards the inner lining, laces, tongue and full-length rubber sole unit.

To offset its heavenly colorway, pops of gold are applied on the signature Swooshes, as well as more branding located on the tongue and heel tab. You can find this quickstrike pair at select Nike accounts overseas now.

I’m biased towards this style. It’s a true classic overall. This variation is versatile for males as well in my opinion.

The Nike Air Max 90 Essential is presented in a new Phantom finish for this season, following a recent Infrared-inspired colorway.

Draped in a muted palette overall, light beige covers the majority of the runner’s composition, which is comprised of breathable mesh and tonal suede overlays adorning the toe cap, mudguard and side panels. To further complement the colorway, cream-colored accents adorn the laces, Swoosh branding and visible bubble unit on its heel.

All adhered atop a clean white midsole unit and classic gum outsole, more white accents are implemented on the inner lining and leather Swoosh to round out the theme perfectly. You can purchase this pair at select Nike retailers overseas now.

The Nike Air Max BW Ultra is a sneaker that gets overlooked a lot by many people because there’s so many Air Max silhouettes out there that more often than not a few of them are bound to get lost in the shuffle.

Perhaps releasing a bold colorway like this University Red option that you see above will get people to notice. The classic silhouette has been upgraded with modern materials and bold colors that include University Red and Bright Crimson for a look that cannot be ignored.

Look for the Nike Air Max BW Ultra at select Nike retailers beginning next month.

Author’s Take

The Air Max BW Ultra is one of those silhouettes that just doesn’t catch my attention. I prefer other classic Air Max silhouettes like the AM 90 and the AM 1 over this.

The Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Essential Is Looking Right For The Spring

NIKE AIR MAX 90 ESSENTIAL 1 NIKE AIR MAX 90 ESSENTIAL 2 NIKE AIR MAX 90 ESSENTIAL 3

Check out this new colorway placed on the Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Essential. Said to have a little ACG inspiration behind it, the shoe dons a similar color scheme we’re used to seeing on the All Conditions Gear models.

The shoe starts off with a black mesh upper accompanied by the Hyperfuse overlay placed on the mudguard and toecap of the shoe. Adding the ACG vibes to the shoe are the Emerald Green hits placed on the “Air Max” branding, and the Metallic Gold hits found on the lining and parts of the outsole. Racer Blue accents are seen on the eyelets, speckling on the black midsole as well as on the heel of the shoe. Like what you see? Let us know in the comments below.

Author’s Take

I like the shoe’s color makeup. It has some color on it, but it’s not overwhelming at all. t works very well with the black upper. The fact that it’s a Ultra Essential assures me that that it’s also going to be more comfortable than the original version of the AM 90.

Author’s Take

Not sure how people who actually skateboard are going to receive the shoe, but I guess you just have a open mind and realize things, looks and trends are always changing. Personally, I think the looks of the shoe is just okay, what’s more important is finding out how it’s going to perform on the board.

The Scream Green them contrasts the appearance on the upper as it’s placed on the heel and heel counted of the shoe. Additional color can be seen on the branding of the tongue, while big “NIKE” lettering can be seen on the heel counter of the shoe. A white sole unit and black inner lining complete the shoe’s appearance. Available at select retailers, let us know if you’re diggin’ this OG look on the Huarache Run Ultra.

Author’s Take

I like the OG colorway being used on the shoe, I just wish there was more of it being used on the upper. Perhaps on the underlays or something along those lines, I thing it would have helped the shoe by giving it some more pop.

The Nike Air Classic BW Premium keeps things at a premium aesthetic by coming dressed in a luxe leather all-black upper. Having already gone over the shoe, today we take another look at them.

The official colorway of the shoe is read as Black/Bright Crimson-Wolf Grey. The upper is dressed in all-black as both nubuck and leather take care of the contruction. Breaking up the tonal look of the base is the white placed on the midsole and the Bright Crimson found on the Air Max unit and outsole. Black lining, laces and Nike branding complete the major features on the shoe. Available now at select retailers, pick up your very own pair today.

Author’s Take

Never really pair any mind to the Nike Air Classic BW, but this Premium version of the shoe definitely caught my eye. I would have liked the shoe a whole lot more if the Crimson hits were removed.

The Nike Air Max 90 Essential Draws Cues From ACG Color Palettes


Nike’s All Conditions Gear saw a recent revamp that twisted around the off-trail aesthetic for a more modern, city appropriate feel. Of course, classic retros like the Nike ACG Mowabb returned to store shelves, but with a $200 price point, the bring back didn’t necessarily leave everyone involved satisfied. That doesn’t change the fact that ACG’s unique color pairings remain as influential as ever, as this Nike Air Max 90 Essential returns with a look straight from the early 90s hiking lookbook. A combination of Black on Black mesh creates an ominous backdrop for unique accents to stand out. While the Swoosh branding is hidden on the side panel, Emerald Green ‘Air Max’ branding remains so there’s no question about the technology brought to the table with this Air Max 90. A khaki take on Metallic Gold hits the outsole and lining to contrast Racer Blue hints throughout. What do you think? We have a detailed look for you below and know that this pair is available from international retailers like Titolo today.

Author’s Take

What an amazing gesture by Nike if this pack is indeed true. To bring back all of Kobe’s signature sneakers to celebrate his storied career is a great idea. I’m sure every single shoe from this pack will sell out almost instantly. Good luck completing the entire pack.

Barkley, Penny, and Payton Inspired The Design Of The Nike Zoom Kobe Icon

While Michael Jordan may have shaped Kobe Bryant’s game, the credit goes to Charles Barkley, Penny Hardaway, and Gary Payton for shaping the design of this retro-inspired Nike Zoom Kobe Icon. This strange Kobe-centric shoe recently hit stores and immediately sneakerheads pointed out the Glove-like upper shroud and that Gary Payton’s signature shoe history must have played a role in the Kobe Icon. Nike reveals that Charles Barkley and Penny Hardaway were key figures in this play as well; the inner bootie design is a nod to Sir Charles’ past designs, while Penny’s role takes place on the Chevron pattern on the Jacquard upper (not featured here, but part of other Zoom Kobe Icon releases). In addition, one of Barkley’s memorable quotes on Kobe is featured on the heel of the shoes. The Red/Gold pair just hit stores like Sneakersnstuff, so grab another look below.
