Nike Cortez by A.L.C.

August 15, 2017 - Nike has partnered with Andrea Lieberman of A.L.C. on a Nike Cortez inspired by the rich palette of neutrals found in A.L.C.'s Fall 2017 collection. Additional details include brass lace tips, snakeskin on the heel, inspirational quotes on the foot beds and longer laces to tie around the wearer's ankles.

"The Cortez has always been my go-to shoe," says Lieberman. "I design A.L.C. clothes with a sneaker in mind, and I think people have started to style their daily outfits with sneakers in mind, too. The Cortez shares that 'never not hustling' spirit that define both the Nike Cortez and A.L.C."

The Nike Cortez by A.L.C. is available in three colorways starting August 25 exclusively at Nike x Nordstrom sneaker boutiques and Nordstrom The Grove. Starting August 28, they will be available on nike.com and Nike+ SNKRS, as well as at Net-A-Porter, select Nordstrom stores and A.L.C.

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.

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.

Nike Rise React Flyknit

August 15, 2018 - The Nike Rise React Flyknit combines the best qualities of its namesake properties: the lightweight support of Flyknit and the responsive comfort of Nike React foam.

The Nike Rise React Flyknit releases September 1 on nike.com and at select Nike retailers.

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.
