The NikeLab Pocketknife DM draws inspiration from the 1998 ACG Pocket Knife's flexibility and ease of entry. This new Pocketknife silhouette doubles the original's interlocking webbing system and adds a drawstring lacing closure to the stretch upper. It also adds small elastic side paneling on either side of the tongue. The outsole is split into four rubber pods with rectangular traction patterns for increased flexibility and grip.
It's available starting July 1 on Nike+, nike.com/nikelab and at select retailers.

Last November marked the release of the Special Field Air Force 1, a shoe that fuses two of Nike's most iconic shoes for winter, the Special Field Boot and the Air Force 1. Now, the shoe — known simply as the SF AF-1 — evolves into a mid, maintaining the adjustable ankle straps, premium, full grain leather and rip stop ballistic nylon of the high.
The Special Field Air Force 1 Mid also has a double-zipper entry at the heel. Text on the lateral side of the shoe is grounded in the aesthetic of technical specifications. Urban Utility Footwear refers to the product's function, and FA17 refers to the Fall 2017 season.
This SF AF-1 Mid is available starting July 28 on Nike+, SNKRS, nike.com and at select retailers.

The Zoom Vaporfly 4% pairs a Nike ZoomX midsole (for responsive cushioning) with a full-length carbon plate (intended to minimize energy loss during toe bend without increasing demand for the calf). Together, these features can make runners, on average, four percent more efficient than Nike’s previous fastest marathon shoe.
The Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% in Ice Blue/Bright Crimson/University Red/Blue Fox will be available July 20 at select retailers, Nike+ in North America, and on nike.com in other locations around the world.

In celebration of the 15th anniversary of the Nike SB Dunk, Nike SB is re-releasing four original Nike SB Dunk Lows remastered as Highs throughout the year. The SB Dunks were designed by pro skaters Reese Forbes, Gino Iannucci, Richard Mulder and Danny Supa in 2002.
"You can imagine how good it felt. The biggest sneaker company in the world asking Reese, Richard, Supa and myself to come up with our own spin on the Dunk. There was so much to absorb being on the Nike campus for the first time," remembers Iannucci. "My intro to the design team was interesting. We all sat round table and just talked shoes and skateboarding. It was intimate and the vibe was very humble and easy going."
The third in the current remaster series is Iannucci's premium black and dark blue colorway. "I just wanted to use colors I knew I'd actually wear and perforated leather I have always loved. The suede and leather combo seemed solid, so it was as simple as that," Iannuci says of his original design.
Reflecting on the return of the colorway, now in hightop form, he notes, "When there's a true love for something you understand the importance of respecting the past as well as embracing the future."
The Nike SB Dunk High Pro Gino is available July 27 on SNKRS, nike.com and at select retailers.
