Special Edition Hypervenom 3 for Harry Kane

September 07, 2018 - After leading England to a semifinal match in Russia and distinguishing himself as the top goal-scorer in the tournament, Nike will honor forward Harry Kane with a special-edition golden Hypervenom 3 boot.  

A tonal St. George’s Cross flag appears on the premium golden boot, along with the England National Team badge. Printed on its instep are symbolic words, such as "Lion" and "Leader," that succinctly describe Kane’s rise from his first club, Ridgeway Rovers.

“From our ground here, you can see the cranes going to work at Tottenham Hotspur on the new stadium,” says Ian Marshall, chairman of Ridgeway Rovers. “From here to Spurs, and doing what he did at the World Cup, it’s inspiring, and we couldn’t be more proud [of him].”

Kane will wear the boot upon his international return in September when England faces Spain.

How to Get the Nike Air Max Deluxe SK

September 01, 2018 - For the third of his Nike Air Max collaborations, the Nike Air Max SK Air, Skepta pays tribute to New York’s role in his career trajectory as an artist and rapper.

Following the June 8, 2014 release of the breakout single "That's Not Me," New York City became a crucial jump-off point in Skepta's push to propel the grime music genre from local London sound to global phenomenon. The Nike Air Max Deluxe SK encapsulates his relationship to the city — where he is embraced with open arms in the five boroughs by fans, friends and family — and serves as a reminder of his emergence. 

This shoe's reinterpretation of the iconic 1999 Nike Air Max Deluxe (known for its bold printed uppers) features design details inspired by the insomnia of long nights on the road. The medial side of the shoe reads "NEVER SLEEP ON TOUR," an ethos that has fueled Skepta’s work rate. The upper pattern draws from the VHS static-led aesthetic found in the award-winning video for "That’s Not Me." In a final nod, that single’s release date is printed on the shoe's lateral side. 

The Nike Air Max Deluxe SK is available beginning September 8 on the SNEAKRS app. Additional pairs will be available in North America at NikeLab 21 Mercer, Concepts, Dover Street Market and KITH. The Nike Air Max Deluxe SK will also release at select European retailers.

Nike Air Presto Mid x ACRONYM®

August 30, 2018 - First released in 2016, the Acronym x Nike Air Presto Mid echos designer Errolson Hugh's utility-focused ethos. The zippered collar allows for easy on-off functionality, while the classic mesh upper and midfoot overlays evolve the support structure of the original 2000 Presto.

For the second trio of Acronym x Nike Air Presto Mid releases, Hugh pulls a bold tech-inspired color and graphic scheme. This gives the silhouette a new twist, and one connected to the current "visual projects" Hugh is undertaking by twisting his brand's signature "A" into a camouflage pattern (similar to what was employed on the recent VaporMax Moc 2 x ACRONYM®). 

The shoe releases in three colorways — Cool Grey/Black, White Dynamic Yellow/Black, and Racer Pink with Photo Blue/White/Black — on September 20.

Nike AF1 Jester Bread&&Butter Berlin

August 29, 2018 - A purposeful mix of Nike heritage, style, and cheeky swagger, the Air Force 1 Jester brings a bold new aesthetic to an iconic silhouette. The shoe — a sneaker made by her, for her — was born from a special project called “The 1 Reimagined,” where 14 female Nike designers collaborated for two weeks to create 10 sneakers for women based on the original Air Jordan 1 and Air Force 1 models. With its misplaced Swoosh logos, double-stacked sole, and premium-leather upper, the AF1 Jester has a fresh, tongue-in-cheek vibe befitting its classic forefather.

The AF1 Jester is available August 31 in two new, exclusive colorways, Orange Peel and Olive Canvas, at Bread&&Butter 2018 in Berlin and zalando.com.

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.
