November 28, 2018 - In its two decades of life, the Air Max Plus has released in hundreds of colorways and variations. Among those, a few stand above the rest: the Hyper Blue and the Sunset. Original through and through, these two variations helped define the TN aesthetic and grounded the shoe's unapologetic boldness. A third variation, the Grid (first and last seen in 2000), is representative of the grail-level schemes that hit the TN over the years.
The Air Max Plus Greedy combines these three looks into a single shoe. The Hyper Blue takes the lateral side of the shoe, while the Tiger colorway covers the medial portion. A subtle Grid brings it all together.
The Air Max Plus Greedy releases December 8 via the SNEAKRS app, Foot Locker and selected retailers.
November 27, 2018 - Since 1994, UK brand maharishi has been the leader in authentic heritage and original camouflage prints. The brand’s founder and creative director, Hardy Blechman, wrote the 944-page book on disruptive pattern material, and camo has since become one of the most recognizable elements in today’s streetwear landscape.
Nike By maharishi creates a natural extension of this deep knowledge of military utility through a customizable collaboration across three silhouettes — the AF1 High, AF1 Low Utility and Air Max 270 Bowfin.
Inspired by World War II era military tour jackets, the AF1 High allows selection of leather, wool or a combination of the two. The AF1 Low and Air Max 270 Bowfin offer an array of lightweight, breathable ripstop fabrics. Of course, there are also several redacted camouflage patterns within the assorted fabrics. These feature a maharishi original pattern, Bonsai Forest — an apt celebration of the natural world and nature's overarching, holistic influence on camouflage.
As a precursor to the digital launch, maharishi will release interpretations of each of the three silhouettes via raffle. To enter visit maharishistore.com and enter between 12pm GMT on November 27 and 12pm GMT on November 29.
The maharishi By You platform launches December 17. In Greater China and Japan, the program launches December 18.

November 21, 2018 - The Nike PG 2.5 x PlayStation, inspired by the color-matching of the original PS system, connects Paul George and his love for gaming at a time when he's found a new role for the pastime in his life — off-court restoration.
“Before, I played video games just because it was fun,” George says. “Now I do it because that’s how I relax. I need an exit from reality sometimes, to get away, to be in a different place and different moment.”
This PG 2.5 features a pattern of the iconic PlayStation symbols through the shoe’s counter and the heel. New to the 2.5 is the original gray of the first console and the classic four-color PlayStation logo on the left shoe — an alternate take on the PG2’s light-up tongue.
Paul George’s signature line shows an evolution of his gaming affinity. The sockliner of the PG1 included a video game rendering of George. In early 2018, George debuted the PG2 in a colorway inspired by the PS4's DualShock4 controller.
The Nike PG 2.5 x PlayStation will appear during his November 21 away game versus the Golden State Warriors. The shoe will release globally December 1 on the SNKRS app and at select retailers.
November 20, 2018 - Artist Series is a new global Foot Locker exclusive collection curated by Tyler, the Creator. The sneakers feature art by Wyatt Navarro, Tyler’s friend, and Norwegian Øyvind Lauvdahl, who he discovered on Instagram.
The themes Navarro and Lauvdahl convey through their artwork are at once similar and unique to their local realities.
Wyatt's doodles on the Converse Chuck 70 form a dreamy, semi-colorful print on parchment canvas reminiscent of vibrant Los Angeles street art. Meanwhile, Øyvind’s melancholy black-and-white scheme on the One Star conveys the isolation of Norway in the dark winter months. The two artists also collaborated on a Chuck 70, presented with split side designs to show their contrasting creative points of view.
The three sneakers release November 26.
November 20, 2018 - As noted at its October 15 launch, Patta's latest Nike collection is predicated on a broadened collaborative scope.

November 19, 2018 - Nike and Carhartt WIP come together to release a footwear collection that combines Nike’s iconic sneaker silhouettes with Carhartt WIP’s signature fabrics.
Established in 1989, Carhartt Work In Progress (WIP) takes the rough and rugged spirit of original Carhartt work wear and refines and adapts it for a new audience — one appreciative of considered, durable garments, but also a contemporary design perspective. For this collection, core Carhartt WIP materials, such as Dearborn Canvas in Hamilton Brown and black and Camo Tiger Ripstop, are used to update signature Nike sneakers: the Air Force 1 Low, Vandal Supreme High, Air Force 1 Low Utility and Air Max 95.
The footwear drops December 6 via nike.com, the SNKRS and SNKEAKRS apps, as well as at select retailers.

November 15, 2018 - Harlem-born entertainer and athlete Sheck Wes is the inaugural curator of Nike’s new program, NYC Editions. The scheme celebrates New York City through partnerships with local creatives, allows the curators access to classic Nike silhouettes as a canvas for self-expression and relays homegrown stories.
With Wes, NYC Editions tips-off with a bicoastal flavor. He nods to his current life, split between NYC and LA, by finding commonality in a love for basketball.
Wes’s product assortment is highlighted by two footwear choices: An Air Max 95 and a Blazer Mid. Color schemes from both, which balance New York’s noteworthy orange and LA’s unmistakable purple, inform the Sheck Wes NYC Editions apparel. Within the mix are two T-shirts, a long sleeve T-shirt, hoodie, short and pant. All reflect Wes’s move from east to west, and capture a gritty graphic aesthetic.
Nike will celebrate the inaugural NYC Editions collection curated by Sheck Wes at Social Studies NYC. The footwear will be available November 16 at Nike stores and select retailers.
