November 22, 2017 - Using the iconic Air Jordan 1 silhouette as a canvas, many colorways have come to represent stories much bigger than just a style code. When combined with the right energy, grouping together colorways can accomplish more than just paying tribute to past favorites; it can create a new classic altogether.
Following the instant success of the Air Jordan I Top 3 Pick in 2016 comes a reimagination of three popular gold-, black- and white-based models. First released at ComplexCon, this interpretation of the Jordan I features a sleek patent leather on the upper.

November 21, 2018 - The Nike PG 2.5 x PlayStation, inspired by the color-matching of the original PS system, connects Paul George and his love for gaming at a time when he's found a new role for the pastime in his life — off-court restoration.
“Before, I played video games just because it was fun,” George says. “Now I do it because that’s how I relax. I need an exit from reality sometimes, to get away, to be in a different place and different moment.”
This PG 2.5 features a pattern of the iconic PlayStation symbols through the shoe’s counter and the heel. New to the 2.5 is the original gray of the first console and the classic four-color PlayStation logo on the left shoe — an alternate take on the PG2’s light-up tongue.
Paul George’s signature line shows an evolution of his gaming affinity. The sockliner of the PG1 included a video game rendering of George. In early 2018, George debuted the PG2 in a colorway inspired by the PS4's DualShock4 controller.
The Nike PG 2.5 x PlayStation will appear during his November 21 away game versus the Golden State Warriors. The shoe will release globally December 1 on the SNKRS app and at select retailers.
November 20, 2018 - Artist Series is a new global Foot Locker exclusive collection curated by Tyler, the Creator. The sneakers feature art by Wyatt Navarro, Tyler’s friend, and Norwegian Øyvind Lauvdahl, who he discovered on Instagram.
The themes Navarro and Lauvdahl convey through their artwork are at once similar and unique to their local realities.
Wyatt's doodles on the Converse Chuck 70 form a dreamy, semi-colorful print on parchment canvas reminiscent of vibrant Los Angeles street art. Meanwhile, Øyvind’s melancholy black-and-white scheme on the One Star conveys the isolation of Norway in the dark winter months. The two artists also collaborated on a Chuck 70, presented with split side designs to show their contrasting creative points of view.
The three sneakers release November 26.
November 20, 2018 - As noted at its October 15 launch, Patta's latest Nike collection is predicated on a broadened collaborative scope. Now, in association with Nike By You, the final flourish — the invitation for all to give an individual twist to the Patta-driven AM 90 x 95 and AM 95 x 90 (a Nike By You exclusive) silhouettes — is imminent.
Within a new 3D builder, customization options on the two silhouettes include five upper colors, three tongue labels and choice of black, white or tonal flood tooling. The AM 90 x 95 will also have an option of contrast or tonal Swoosh articulation.
The shoes will be available via nikebyyou.nike.com/patta from November 26 (starting at 10:00 a.m. in each respective time zone) through December 3.
November 19, 2018 - Nike and Carhartt WIP come together to release a footwear collection that combines Nike’s iconic sneaker silhouettes with Carhartt WIP’s signature fabrics.
Established in 1989, Carhartt Work In Progress (WIP) takes the rough and rugged spirit of original Carhartt work wear and refines and adapts it for a new audience — one appreciative of considered, durable garments, but also a contemporary design perspective. For this collection, core Carhartt WIP materials, such as Dearborn Canvas in Hamilton Brown and black and Camo Tiger Ripstop, are used to update signature Nike sneakers: the Air Force 1 Low, Vandal Supreme High, Air Force 1 Low Utility and Air Max 95.
The footwear drops December 6 via nike.com, the SNKRS and SNKEAKRS apps, as well as at select retailers.
November 18, 2018 - The tenth of Odell Beckham Jr.'s pregame cleats for the 2018-19 season, the Nike Air Trainer I Cleat (Odell Beckham Jr. Special Edition) covers the seminal training silhouette in a flood-red colorway and features OBJ branding on the tongue.

November 15, 2018 - Harlem-born entertainer and athlete Sheck Wes is the inaugural curator of Nike’s new program, NYC Editions. The scheme celebrates New York City through partnerships with local creatives, allows the curators access to classic Nike silhouettes as a canvas for self-expression and relays homegrown stories.
With Wes, NYC Editions tips-off with a bicoastal flavor. He nods to his current life, split between NYC and LA, by finding commonality in a love for basketball.
Wes’s product assortment is highlighted by two footwear choices: An Air Max 95 and a Blazer Mid. Color schemes from both, which balance New York’s noteworthy orange and LA’s unmistakable purple, inform the Sheck Wes NYC Editions apparel. Within the mix are two T-shirts, a long sleeve T-shirt, hoodie, short and pant. All reflect Wes’s move from east to west, and capture a gritty graphic aesthetic.
Nike will celebrate the inaugural NYC Editions collection curated by Sheck Wes at Social Studies NYC. The footwear will be available November 16 at Nike stores and select retailers.
November 14, 2018 - To celebrate the opening of Nike’s newest flagship store in New York City, a collection of five iconic silhouettes will be available at Nike NYC in limited quantities beginning November 15. All highlight moments in sport that brought the city to awed silence.
Each shoe is crafted with white-on-white, high quality, bonded synthetic leather along with removable Nike Swooshes to allow for more flexibility in customization. In Nike NYC, shoppers will have access to footwear dip-dyeing, printing, embroidery, patches, lasering and a full accessory bar (You can also buy the shoe as-is at the store).

NIKE AIR FORCE I LOW | ODELL BECKHAM JR.
After missing the first four games of his rookie season due to injury, Beckham Jr.’s 50-yard, one-handed, free-falling touchdown catch at Meadowlands in late November of 2014 became a landmark moment for the sport, igniting OBJ’s legacy and sparking football’s future. The Nike Noise Cancelling Pack Air Force 1 Low will be available at Nike NYC December 14 through December 27.

November 13, 2018 - Built for high-intensity training, the Nike Metcon Flyknit 3 offers exceptional stability, comfort and performance during demanding workouts.
The shoe features the addition of high-tenacity Nike Flyknit yarn in the forefoot, providing superior sturdiness for rope climbs, while the reinforced skin overlay on the toe gives added durability. The Nike Flyknit upper also yields flexibility and breathability.
New for the third edition, the TPU eyestays support and lock down the ankle, while the skin overlay on the side of the foot offers forefoot containment. The flat outsole provides a stable lifting platform.
