The first iteration of the Nike Komyuter, the ACG.07.KMTR, silhouette's function guides its stance. The upper transforms from its loose, open state into a sleek, fast silhouette that marries gracefully to a full-rubber bottom with wet traction lugs (derived from the tooling of the Nike Tallac Flyknit ACG). Compositionally, this build simultaneously conveys comfort in speed and a readiness to take on anything. Reflective hits on the logo and welding seams help ensure the all-day, all-challenges equipment is balanced with requisite safety features.
The ACG.07.KMTR launches May 18 on NikeLab.com and at NikeLab retail locations.

Originally inspired by the foldable design of a paper bag, the first Nike City Knife shoe, released in 2002, had similarly foldable creases for flattened packability. Before it came the Pocket Knife, from 1998, a collapsible ACG shoe embraced by outdoor athletes.
Today, the new NikeLab City Knife 3 Flyknit draws from the versatility of both models, providing a breathable, sock-like fit through a one-piece, 360 Flyknit upper that's encapsulated in a translucent rubber outsole (sharp lines on the outsole reference the geometry of the original). A rubber strap keeps the foot locked down. The shoe's minimal design — made of only five pieces without any stitching — enables it to flatten easily.
The NikeLab City Knife 3 Flyknit is available May 11, in women's sizing, on Nike+, nike.com/nikelab and at select retailers. It comes with a special travel bag.

This KYRIE 3 PE and its lightning graphic take inspiration from one of Kyrie Irving's favorite musicals, also a film, and its lead character, Danny Zuko's, car. Irving's interest in theater began as a kid (while performing in school productions) and continues today.
“If you were watching College Basketball in the early ‘90s, the Fab Five stuck with you. They brought a new style of play. They had swagger to their game that I hadn’t seen at the college level before. They became one of the most iconic teams in college sports. I wanted to create a special shoe that celebrated that team and marks the start of a new era for the teams at the Jordan Brand and the University of Michigan,” says Tinker Hatfield, VP of Design & Special Projects.
Hatfield chose the iconic Jordan V as his canvas to celebrate the past and look to the future. The suede Maize upper creates a striking new look to the familiar V silhouette.
Two other classic Michigan references feature on the all-black tongue with the ‘M” embroidered front, and “Hail To” and “The Victors” stitched on the inside of the left and right tongues respectively.
On the back heel features a specially created logo that depicts a graphic created by Hatfield that represents the ‘five times’ sign that the team occasionally used during their time at the school.
This execution of the Jordan V, a gift from Hatfield to the friends and family of the Jordan Brand will not be available at retail.
