Three Women's-Exclusive Styles Highlight Jordan Brand's Fall 2020 Assortment

June 29, 2020 - The Jordan Brand Fall 2020 collection brings fresh design approaches to retro looks. Four iterations of the Air Jordan I and three women's-exclusive styles lead the latest from the Jumpman.

WOMEN’S AIR JORDAN I HI OG
An alternate twist on Jordan Brand’s 2019 Satin Black Toe colorway, this women’s-exclusive model employs a mix of satin, faux snakeskin and leather in timeless black and red color-blocking. 

AIR JORDAN I RETRO HI OG CO.JP
Only available in Japan when first released in 2001, the Air Jordan I HI OG CO.JP returns in 2020 for a global launch. Metallic silver dominates the upper and is complemented by a silver Jumpman hangtag and special CO.JP sockliners. In Japan only, this iteration of the Air Jordan I will be sold in exclusive silver suitcases numbered 1 through 2,020.

AIR JORDAN I HI OG
Inspired by Japan’s fast-paced capital city, this Air Jordan I HI OG blends modern coloring with classic craftsmanship. 

AIR JORDAN I RETRO HI OG
The fall 2020 edition of the Air Jordan I HI OG honors Jordan Brand’s heritage by using familiar colors in a new way: A white toe box is contrasted by gray and red leather overlays and a black Swoosh for a classic look. 

WOMEN’S AIR JORDAN III RETRO
This women’s-exclusive Air Jordan III Retro has a white tumbled leather upper with hits of Laser Orange throughout the sockliner, eyelets and midsole. Incorporating iconic elephant print on the toe and heel, this iteration is completed by a Laser Orange Jumpman “Air” hangtag.

AIR JORDAN III 
With an OG genuine leather upper, this Air Jordan III uses a raw denim-finished elephant print inspired by Japan on the heel, toe and eyestay. The model features a translucent Nike Air and Jumpman heel tabs and comes in special denim elephant-print packaging. An exclusive Japan-only model will include Japanese Nike Air branding on the heel tab. 

AIR JORDAN V RETRO
Continuing the celebration of the Air Jordan V 30th anniversary, the fall 2020 iteration is dressed in an all-green premium suede upper with pops of yellow and a black reflective tongue. The model also includes the OG lace lock and translucent outsole and is completed by a woven jock tag on the heel.

WOMEN’S AIR JORDAN VI RETRO
Another women’s-exclusive model, this Air Jordan VI Retro employs a mixture of colors and materials, including transparent TPU on the midsole and pull tab, gray rubber on the tongue, black suede on the toe and vamp and a metallic Jumpman hangtag. Inspirational messages printed on the sockliner include “Be Kind,” “Embrace Uniqueness” and “Spread Love.” 

AIR JORDAN XII RETRO
True to the OG, this Air Jordan XII has a genuine leather upper and the OG lizard pattern on the mudguard. The shoe, like the original, employs matte-finished metal eyelets, a translucent outsole with a carbon fiber shank plate and OG packaging. 

AIR JORDAN XII RETRO
A second colorway spins the retro silhouette with a dyed indigo blue genuine leather upper, while the mudgaurd has the OG lizard pattern. The shoe features matte-finished metal eyelets with a carbon fiber shank plate and OG packaging. 

AIR JORDAN XIII RETRO
This take on the Air Jordan XIII sits an OG genuine leather upper atop the iconic panther paw-like outsole. With a familiar holographic eye, carbon fiber shank plate and fresh reflective silver piping on the upper, this retro take comes complete with OG packaging.

AIR JORDAN XIV RETRO
With a fresh color scheme on the OG Air Jordan XIV model, this edition uses genuine leather for the upper and has a gloss-finished midsole, carbon fiber shank plate and OG packaging.

The Converse Solstice Collection

June 17, 2020 - Converse’s performance basketball silhouettes, the All Star Pro BB and G4, are given a summer-ready refresh with the Solstice Collection. The G4 comes in two low top expressions:  Amethyst Grey and Photon Dust, symbolizing daytime play, and all-over black, with a hit of solar red on the ankle reflecting play at night. The All Star Pro BB comes in low and mid-top versions, both featuring unique blocking highlighted by use of University Blue.
 
The Converse Solstice collection is now available at converse.com/basketball.

June 09, 2020 - Space Hippie, Nike’s exploratory footwear collection constructed with “space junk” — transformed factory and post-consumer waste — marries sustainable practices and radical design. Each of the four Space Hippie silhouettes provide a unique aesthetic and fit — including traditional laces and laceless designs. The manufacturing, which employs about 85 to 90 percent recycled polyester Space Waste Yarn, recycled Nike ZoomX foam and Crater Foam (a blend of standard Nike foams and Nike Grind Rubber), results in a radical design with a low carbon footprint. 

Updated 12:15 PM PST, June 9:

Space Hippie 01, 02, 03 and 04 launch June 11 on SNKRS and SNEAKERS apps, select Nike doors and retailers. In North America, Space Hippie 01, 02, 03 and 04 release July 3.

Breaking Down the Nike x Travis Scott Air Max 270 “Cactus Trails”

May 22, 2020 - With the Nike x Travis Scott Air Max 270 “Cactus Trails,” design allows for imaginative time travel. A ’90s attitude come through in trail tans and ACG color pops and gives the shoe a vintage appeal, while the well-worn look conveys a back-from-the-future sensibility. 

The color schemes also connect to Scott’s own affinity for vintage apparel. Material selection, including a polar fleece collar, further relays an outdoor connection, while oxidation of the upper, midsole and Air unit, achieved through a tint Sulphur dye, helps celebrate the beauty of a well-loved object’s patina. Additional details include a custom tongue-tab, lace-lock and an extra Swoosh on the toe.

The Nike x Travis Scott Air Max 270 “Cactus Trails” releases May 29 in adult, preschool and toddler versions. The latter two introduce a unique take on the design, complete with reverse Swoosh, just for kids, a first in Nike x Travis Scott collaborations.

Additionally, an apparel collection including a hoodie, sweatpants and T-shirt extend Scott’s interest in uniting sportswear comfort with utilitarian multi-pocket function. Download hi-res images here

The Converse x Carhartt WIP Renew Chuck 70 Uses Upcycled Work Fabrics

May 21, 2020 - Expanding the Converse Renew program, the Converse x Carhartt WIP Renew Chuck 70 uses single-source upcycled textiles from the famed work garment brand.

One thousand pre-owned canvas Carhartt work jackets, trousers and overalls, sourced from UK–based fashion and vintage retailer, Beyond Retro, were sorted into three color ranges and then cut to create individual Chuck 70 shoe panels. 

The tri-panel execution on each pair highlights stitching details characteristic of the Carhartt WIP brand. Including the Converse x Carhartt WIP Renew Chuck 70, the Converse Renew program has diverted more than 108,000 textile items from landfills.

The collection will be available in limited quantities at converse.com, carhartt-wip.com and select retailers May 28.

May 15, 2020 - The LEBRON XVII Graffiti mashes together design cues from the memorable colorway of the LEBRON IV — one of the most underrated silhouettes in his line, according to James — and the durable support of the XVII's Knitposite upper. The familiar graffiti-style script is back, highlighting the city in which the colorway debuted during a pop-up event in 2006.

"I think the IVs were before their time," says James. "The full-length Zoom unit, the Foamposite — that silhouette was crazy. It looked so different from the earlier three shoes in the line, and wearing them right before that title run in 2007 made them that much more memorable."

Update: The LEBRON XVII Graffiti releases June 23 on nike.com and SNKRS.

Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Ben & Jerry’s

May 15, 2020 - The summer collab between Nike SB and Ben & Jerry’s riffs off the Vermontian ice cream company’s delightful pint packaging. The outsole mimics the green hillside seen on the container, where cows dance in the foreground; the shoe’s leather overlays feature a hairy cow faux-print. Puffy clouds form on the heel behind a Nike wordmark in Ben & Jerry’s font. There’s tie-dye on the lining and sockliner. Finishing off the look is a drippy swoosh in the B&J’s gold.

The Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Ben & Jerry’s releases May 23 at select skate shops globally and May 26 on SNKRS and SNEAKRS. To look up the Nike SB store finder, click here.

May 15, 2020 - The Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 Safari celebrates the 10th anniversary of Cristiano Ronaldo’s first Player Edition boot, the Safari Print Mercurial Vapor Superfly II

Safari print, introduced on the 1987 Air Safari designed by Tinker Hatfield, debuted on performance football footwear with Ronaldo’s boot in November 2010. The look quickly became an on-pitch classic — its design employed in a unique way and overlaid with a tonal reflective and non-reflective chevron pattern that illuminated in certain light.

The Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 Safari mirrors the Safari Print Mercurial Vapor Superfly II, but the new edition also incorporates CR7’s famous celebration stance, signature and logo on the sockliner. A special pigment on the Elite style distinctively highlights the chevron pattern of the Mercurial Superfly. A kids' edition of the boot keeps the traditional Safari color scheme of white, black and orange. 

The Nike Mercurial Superfly CR7 Safari launches in China May 15 in kids' sizes. Helping celebrate Cristiano Ronaldo Jr.’s 10th birthday, the kids boot and limited quantities of the Nike Mercurial Superfly Elite FG CR7 Safari adult version release globally June 17, along with an exclusive kids apparel collection.
