How to Get the Nike Shox R4

October 04, 2018 - In 2000, Nike introduced a technological feature that seemed born from a science-fiction movie: four PE “pucks” on a heel platform that was the visual extreme of responsive energy return. The technology would have its sports moment in every field, from running to basketball to training. After reviving the platform earlier this year with the Nike Shox Gravity, Nike is bringing back the silhouette that started it all with the Nike Shox R4.

Many qualities of the re-release are loyal to the original Nike Shox R4 — the platform and double-lasted synthetic upper return, as does the shoe’s original launch colors, metallic detailing and reflective elements. The covered midsole blends together these elements in one unified look, allowing wearers to feel that they have a piece of the future on their feet — just as they did 18 years ago.

The Nike Shox R4 releases October 4 in both men's and women's sizes at the below specialty global retailers and online at Net-a-Porter:

Nike Alpha Huarache Elite 2 Cleat and Turf Shoe

October 01, 2018 - The Nike Alpha Huarache Elite 2 Cleat, arriving in both a mid-cut and a low-cut, is designed for dynamism on the field without sacrificing stability.

Exclusive to the mid-cut cleat is a textile double-strap at the midfoot and the ankle, featuring a hook-and-loop closure; the back of the strap has an open-hook detail that allows for easy entry. A Nike Air unit in the heel and Zoom AIr unit in the forefoot provides comfort underfoot, while a TPU toe cap and rubberized screenprint resists abrasion in the cleat's high-wear areas. The Nike Alpha Huarache Elite 2 Low Cleat also brings a breathable, secure fit with its no-sew mesh upper.

The Nike Alpha Huarache Elite 2 Turf Shoe, meanwhile, is built for your pregame and practice needs. The Nike Lunarlon foam in the midsole provides lightweight cushioning. Rubber pegs throughout the center of the outsole give enhanced traction on turf, grass, and dirt. 

The Nike Alpha Huarache Elite 2 Cleat and Turf Shoe releases October 1 on nike.com and at select retailers.
