Jordan XIII University of Oregon Track and Field F&F

June 06, 2018 - How do you design a shoe for the flashiest athletes in college sports? 

That question was the starting point for Dan Sunwoo and Tinker Hatfield's latest University of Oregon F&F Jordan, created for the schools track & field program. Hatfield, a former track athlete himself, wanted to convey some of the inherent swagger track & field stars carry, so Sunwoo chose to allow the university's famous yellow to pop strongly off the shoe's primarily black upper. 

An added quirk, made possible through the blocking of the Jordan XIII, is that the yellow pop also ends up looking like a duck foot when the shoes hit heel to heel. Bonus details include custom embroidery throughout and a replacement of the shoe's traditional cat eye motif with the UofO logo.

The shoe is limited to members of the University of Oregon track & field program and friends & family of Jordan Brand.

Nike Metcon 4 Mat Fraser

May 25, 2018 - The Nike athlete and two-time fittest man on the planet's first PE Nike shoe is largely inspired by two of Mat Fraser's favorite things: weightlifting and motorcycles. The sleek black design has custom haptic printing on the upper, replicating a barbell's diamond knurling. The bull’s skull on the tongue patch is reminiscent of a motorcycle jacket patch, the lining is quilted like a motorcycle seat, the back of the shoe is leather and the heel clip and shoelace tips are gunmetal chrome – all nods to premium motorcycle detailing.

The two circles on each heel represent the two first-place medals Fraser earned at the highest level of global competitive fitness, and nods toward his goal of a three-peat. The letters “HWPO," which stands for "hard work pays off" and is Fraser's personal mantra, line the insole.

"These design elements are really about celebrating some of my passions inside and outside of the gym," says Fraser. "This shoe gives me such sense of accomplishment. It really gets me amped up to keep doing what I'm doing — working hard and trying to make myself the best athlete I possibly can."

The Nike Metcon 4 Mat Fraser will be available June 8 on nike.com and at select retailers.

Jordan Tenacity 88 Pre Classic

May 24, 2018 - When Jordan Brand athlete Erik Kynard (high jump) hits Eugene, Oregon’s, famed Hayward Field this weekend for the 2018 Prefontaine Classic, he will do so in special-edition 50/50 split block infrared/volt Jumpman footwear and uniform. The look, which draws from the the Nike Zoom Jasari — the distance spike that lit up Atlanta’s tracks in ’96 (the same year Jordan himself returned to championship glory to cap a 72-win season) — ties together Nike’s track and field heritage and Jordan Brand’s commitment to the sport.

Fittingly, Kynard will be joined in wearing 50/50 footwear by Nike athletes Matt Centrowitz (1500) and Renaud Levellenie (pole vault).

And the Jordan Tenacity 88 will take the colorway off the track with limited pairs releasing at Nike Eugene on May 25.

Nike Free CR7 x Metcon

May 22, 2018 - The Nike Free x Metcon combines the flexibility and comfort of Nike Free with the durability and stability of Nike Metcon – a combination Cristiano Ronaldo wanted in a Nike Training shoe.

The Nike Free CR7 x Metcon speaks to Ronaldo's incredible focus, never-ending attention to detail and complete dedication to training to be his best.

Ronaldo chose white as the primary color because it provides a light, fresh feel and embodies the energy and spirit he needs for his training, he says. His favorite color, ice-blue, shows up in detailing on the TPU cage and handstand heel clip. The new logo on the cage was inspired by an ancient Portuguese navigational tool that pays tribute to Ronaldo's national heritage. His signature appears on the sock liner and CR7 branding is embossed in the premium leather at the heel and tongue.

The shoe will be available May 26 on nike.com and at select retailers.
