Jordan V "Fab Five"

May 03, 2017 - “If you were watching College Basketball in the early ‘90s, the Fab Five stuck with you. They brought a new style of play. They had swagger to their game that I hadn’t seen at the college level before. They became one of the most iconic teams in college sports. I wanted to create a special shoe that celebrated that team and marks the start of a new era for the teams at the Jordan Brand and the University of Michigan,” says Tinker Hatfield, VP of Design & Special Projects.

Hatfield chose the iconic Jordan V as his canvas to celebrate the past and look to the future. The suede Maize upper creates a striking new look to the familiar V silhouette.

Two other classic Michigan references feature on the all-black tongue with the ‘M” embroidered front, and “Hail To” and “The Victors” stitched on the inside of the left and right tongues respectively.

On the back heel features a specially created logo that depicts a graphic created by Hatfield that represents the ‘five times’ sign that the team occasionally used during their time at the school. 

This execution of the Jordan V, a gift from Hatfield to the friends and family of the Jordan Brand will not be available at retail.

Nike PSNY AF1

August 16, 2018 - Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne are no strangers to fusing seemingly disparate elements of street and high fashion. Their brand, the award-winning Public School, is predicated on the energy of their hometown, New York City, and its style diversity. Born from this environment, the duo's interpretation of fashion includes recognizing a few tried-and true-standards, like Nike's 1982 classic, the Air Force One.

To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the AF1 last year, Chow and Osborne created an all-new high version of the shoe by deconstructing low, mid and high models and using the unaltered pattern parts to reconstruct their own vision of the icon. That shoe, the PSNY AF1, will launch in three colorways (black, white and grey) at PSNY's pop-up space on 3 Howard Street, New York, on September 4. A global release follows on September 5.

Nike La Cortez x Maria Sharapova

August 16, 2018 - Last spring, Nike worked with Maria Sharapova to create the La Cortez, her take on the classic silhouette inspired by the city of Los Angeles. The second iteration of the La Cortez comes to life this fall as Sharapova prepares for Flushing Meadows, finding inspiration from the beauty of New York City in autumn as leaves morph from green to the earthy hues found across the shoe. Soft satin laces complement the leather upper, and Sharapova's signature lollypop icon is etched on the back heel cuff.

The Nike La Cortez x Maria Sharapova releases August 22 at Bandier only, and August 23 on nike.com and at Nordstrom x Nike sneaker boutiques.

Air Jordan I Hi OG NRG

August 14, 2018 - The Air Jordan I Hi OG NRG colorway takes inspiration from professional BMX rider and Nike, Inc. family member, Nigel Sylvester. Serving as his go-to riding shoe, Nigel’s AJ1s are often seen with heavy distress marks created during the trial and error part of mastering tricks.

This pair mimics those marks with distressing done by hand on a discolored Sail, white, Varsity Red and Muslin colorway. For the medial Swoosh, a reflective material is employed to provide a flashing effect while night riding. Within the inner collar of the shoe is the designation "Jordan Biking Co., Est. 2017," which signifies the year the project was kicked off. Finally, the heel exhibits scuff marks reminiscent of the abrasions on Nigel’s old AJ1s.

In addition to those elements, the shoe features a mini Swoosh on the lateral toe box and a deconstructed lateral Swoosh and Wings logos.

The shoe releases September 1.

KYRIE 4 Decades Pack

August 08, 2018 - The KYRIE 4 Decades Pack takes characteristics of three defining decades the individual expressiveness of the '70s, the bold creativity of the '80s, and the childhood nostalgia of the '90s and infuses them into three special colorways.

Each shoe has design elements that point both to a decade and to a piece of Kyrie Irving's personality. The KYRIE 4 '70s channel Irving's deft, dance-like handles through the psychedelic print on the quarter panel. The neon fluorescent patterns of the KYRIE 4 '80s honor Irving's loud star-power with the ball. The bootie of the KYRIE 4 '90s is inspired by mornings spent watching classic Saturday cartoon shows, making good on Irving's belief that you'll always be a kid at heart.

The KYRIE 4 Decades Pack is available globally in limited quantities beginning this month on nike.com and at select retailers.
