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.

Nike Air Max 95 Greedy 2.0 Official Images

May 15, 2020 - Call it a retro reprise with a twist. The Nike Air Max Greedy 2.0 takes the principles of the 2015 original — mashing up classic colorways — and shifts the base from black to white. The Greedy 2.0's mix of iconic and niche makeups draw from versions initially released in 1995, 1998, 2003 and beyond. As the shoe arrives at the silhouette's 25th birthday, this breadth reminds of the Air Max 95's original impact, as well as its unbreakable stylistic validity. 

The Greedy 2.0 releases this spring on nike.com and the Nike App.

Converse Renew Gets Colorful for Summer

May 13, 2020 - A year ago, Converse launched Renew to find solutions for post-consumer and post-industrial waste by using upcycled textiles and recycled cotton canvas blends. This summer’s colorful Renew capsule highlights Converse’s proprietary recycled cotton canvas process, using discarded cotton canvas scraps from the footwear manufacturing process to create new sneakers.

Created with a blend of 80% virgin cotton and 20% recycled cotton, the tri-panel execution on the Chuck 70 takes cues from earthy tones like prairie sand, branded melon, noble gray and mellow rose. A monotone egret variation uses an undyed yarn blend to form the fabric for the shoe’s canvas upper (It incorporates 30% egret and white recycled cotton canvas scraps with 30% recycled PET and 40% virgin cotton).

Presented in faded, color-blocked designs in Hi and Ox cuts, the Renew Tri-Panel Chuck 70 collection will be available May 15 on converse.com.

How to Get the Nike x Comme des Garçons Dunk Low

May 11, 2020 - Introduced in September during Comme des Garçons’ SS20 Women's Paris runway show, a duo of new Nike Dunks work together to augment the iconic silhouette's legacy in fashion. 
 
Japan, and Tokyo specifically, plays an important role in establishing the Nike Dunk as an icon of the international urban cognoscenti. Energetic elements of city life — the club scene, graffiti, skateboarding, fashion — are embodied by adopters of the silhouette, many of them leaders of Tokyo's respective scenes. In the 35 years since the Dunk first debuted, Japan-led releases and collaborations have continually steered the Dunk story forward, while keeping the shoe in line with its balance of community authenticity and creative ingenuity.
 
Comme des Garçons’ latest Dunk collaboration, a spiritual follow-up to a clear Dunk Hi from 2017, exemplifies Rei Kawakubo’s drive to continually create new things. The unisex design, like its predecessor, presents the Dunk with a new materiality — this time taking Nexkin, familiar through its use in the Vaporfly SP and React Element 87, and toying with its inherent transparency. Both versions, a CDG all-over monogram print and a simple black, highlight the potential of layered color to give the flat Nexkin a novel sense of texture and dimensionality — an effect fitting of Kawakubo's overarching design ethos.

The Dunks, releasing in women’s sizes 5 to 14 and men’s sizes 3.5 to 12.5, launch exclusively through Comme des Garçons and Dover Street Market May 14. An additional release by Comme des Garçons’ partner wholesale accounts follows.

May 04, 2020 - The Converse x ROKIT Chuck 70 builds off the brands' debut collaboration in 2018 and examines Converse and ROKIT’s youthful mergers of basketball and skate culture. The All-Star logo is eclipsed in black fabric, sewn onto canvas that is divided into quarters through tonal stitching, blending figurative textures of asphalt and blacktop — a foundation likened to the streets of downtown Los Angeles, where ROKIT is based.

"The Chuck 70 is classic yet constantly evolving at the same time," says Bam Barcena, creative director and co-owner of ROKIT. "The idea of it originally being a basketball shoe and now being more of a cultural icon says a lot — and that magic of being able to exist in seemingly different spaces is very much in line with the spirit we capture with ROKIT."

The Converse x ROKIT Chuck 70 releases on converse.com and at select retailers in May.

Jordan Brand's Latest Running Shoe Brings Responsive Cushioning and Stability

May 04, 2020 - With the Trunner Ultimate, the Jordan Brand presents a dynamic design for a range of cardio workouts. 
 
Similar to previous Jordan Brand performance running footwear, the Trunner Ultimate supports speed-focused training emphasizing explosiveness and responsiveness (both crucial in game-deciding moments), as well as 5k to 15k conditioning runs.
 
The build of the Trunner Ultimate is compatible with the linear and lateral movements inherent to the workout routines of team sport athletes. A diamond-shape cage helps provide side-to-side stability, while responsive cushioning comes from a visible, full-length Air Zoom unit, along with an extra forefoot unit. Flight Fin technology, introduced with the Trunner NXT, creates a smooth heel-to-toe transition. A formfitting, one-piece mesh upper completes the shoe.
 
The Trunner Ultimate launches May 6. Additionally colorways will release from June 1.

May 02, 2020 - First unveiled during the 2019-20 media day, this LEBRON VII Media Day arrives in a purple and gold colorway and is rooted in unmistakable team heritage through alternating colors on the left and right shoe.

The LEBRON VII Media Day releases May 16 on nike.com and SNKRS.

Turn It Up with Nike’s First Indoor Cycling Shoe

May 01, 2020 - Designed specifically for indoor cycling and launching during a time when more workouts are performed inside, the Nike SuperRep Cycle is Nike’s first venture into indoor cycling footwear. The shoe brings stability and breathability on and off the bike.

To better address the needs of riders’ lateral and out-of-seat movements, a support arc on the shoe’s medial side helps keep feet secured during "Figure 8s" or other side-to-side combinations out of the saddle. The Nike SuperRep Cycle also solves for heavy, wet shoes during a hot and sweaty bike session, whether at-home or in the studio, by incorporating lightweight, translucid mesh on the upper, coupled with a perforated sockliner and vents through the bottom of the plate to enable better airflow around the toes.

The shoe is designed with a simplified closure system, making it easier to get on and off. Rubber studs and a textured toe plate provide traction while walking to and from the bike.

Working for caged or clipped-in riders (clips are compatible with major cleat systems), the shoe is versatile and visually stunning — this comes through in details of ghosted mesh on a vibrant neon orange and pink in the women's exclusive colorway. A classic black and white colorway is also available.

The Nike SuperRep Cycle is the newest release from the Nike SuperRep family — a suite of footwear including the Nike Air Zoom SuperRep (for high-intensity interval training workouts) and the Nike SuperRep Go (for self-guided exercise in a more contained space), which serve performance needs across a spectrum of training activities.

The Nike SuperRep Cycle releases in Europe May 1 on nike.com, followed by a Member release in North America May 26 and a global release June 1.

The Nike Air Deschutz Makes a 2020 Comeback

May 01, 2020 - When the Nike Air Deschutz entered the market in 1992 it had competitors in form but never in function. The performance-driven design ushered in the “cross-training sandal," equally at home hitting the trail, whether for a brisk hike or a short trail run, and strolling college campuses. In that, the sandal embodied the ACG ethos, and while many versions took a predominantly black base, its graphic accents further extended what became defining color schemes of the era. 

The Nike ACG Air Deschutz returns in 2020 in ode to its original look. It’s still built to comfortably traverse a range of terrain, but also allows for subdued (or overt) style choices in its contemporary colorways.

Nike ACG Air Deschutz releases May 14 on SNKRS and at select retailers, followed by a European release later this spring on SNEAKERS and at select retailers.

Retro Futurism Serves as Inspo for New Air Max 2090 Colorways

April 29, 2020 - Earlier this year, the Nike Air Max 2090 took recognizable traits of the Air Max 90 into the future. This summer, three new colorways help extend the silhouette’s futuristic feel, each inspired from art work of the retro futurism movement.

The latest color inspiration for the Nike Air Max 2090 expands its theme of future modes of transportation through environment exploration: canyon-like earth tones, clean colors that resemble blue skies and bold brights of future cities at dusk. 

The three new Nike Air Max 2090 looks drop May 7 at nike.com and the Nike App.
