Nike LeBron 16 Low x Titan "Agimat"

August 15, 2019 - Evolving LeBron James' journey from Warrior to King, the latest LeBron 16 Low x Titan "Agimat" was inspired by Filipino folklore. Two new badges — a shield and a lightning bolt — are featured on the heels. The shield was inspired by the Bagobo tribe's traditional armor, while the lightning bolt symbolizes power. 

The shoe is built to harness the athlete's power during play through a combined cushioning system that allows for impact absorption while providing a responsive energy return. A stretch collar and custom lacing also allows for ease of entry and security. 

The Nike LeBron 16 Low x Titan "Agimat" will be available August 31 at Titan Stores, the Titan App, TITAN22.com and nike.com in Southeast Asia and North America.

1998’s Original Women’s Air Jordan Returns

January 10, 2020 - In 1998, Jordan Brand, then in its initial season, created its first women’s Air Jordan silhouette. The shoe's aesthetic linked with the dimpled leather of the Air Jordan XIII, while the herringbone traction signaled high-performance intent. Its inspiration came from an emerging community of professional female players — stamping both a new style on the game and spurring its growth across the world. 

More than two decades later, the women’s Air Jordan returns January 16.

January 07, 2020 - The LEBRON 17 I Promise is inspired by the I Promise School in Akron, Ohio, fueled by LeBron James’ commitment to improve education in his hometown. His passionate optimism is characterized in the shoe’s colorful, kaleidoscopic upper and outsole. The LeBron James Family Foundation crown is on the tongue, while aspirational phrases, such as “I promise I will dream big," appear on the laces. Nike proudly supports the mission of the I Promise School through a charitable donation to the LeBron James Family Foundation.

The LEBRON 17 I Promise releases January 21 on SNKRS North America and at House of Hoops by Foot Locker.

The Nike Atsuma Turns Negative Space into Positive (Aesthetic) Energy

December 23, 2019 - The lateral side Swoosh of Nike’s new classically styled runner, the Atsuma, is mirrored by a cutout version on the medial. It's a handsome aesthetic feature — pleasant for looks alone — but also one that manifested a design challenge. The charge: Reduce material waste by increasing pattern efficiency. 

Nike Atsuma rethinks and reimagines how traditional cut-and-sew footwear can be improved by considering how offcuts can act as critical components of the shoe's construction and beautiful elements of its design. In addition to the lateral and medial panels, the shoe’s heel counter and eyestay exhibit playful employment of negative space. So too does the hangtag, which is formed by a cutout on the outsole. A recycled sockliner adds to the considered decisions.

The Nike Atsuma releases January 1. 

December 22, 2019 - Odell Beckham Jr. will make fans green with envy when he laces up in his Week 16 Nike Vapor Untouchable Pro 3 OBJ Uptempo Cleat inspired by a beloved Christmas character. However, when OBJ's latest pregame cleats hit the field with the twinkling lights turned on, these fuzzy numbers are sure to make anyone's heart grow three sizes. 

The wide receiver will don the holiday-themed pregame cleats ahead of the Cleveland Browns' final 2019 regular season home game against the Baltimore Ravens December 22.
