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.

The All Star Pro BB Eclipse Reintroduces Low Cuts to Converse Performance Basketball

December 20, 2019 - The Converse All Star Pro BB Eclipse honors two elements of the brand's rich basketball history. 

First, the split black/white design reminds of a period in history in which those were the only colorways of the Chuck Taylor All Star available — beginning in 1934, when white was added for the US national men’s basketball team, all the way through 1971.

Second, the introduction of a low-cut All Star Pro BB recalls Converse's first low-cut iteration of an All Star, prepared by Converse's product team for the Harlem Globetrotters in 1957. The idea wasn't just a hit on the court, it also brought the Chuck Taylor to fame within California's emergent beach culture. 

The Converse All Star Pro BB Eclipse, in both hi and low, releases January 2020. 

December 16, 2019 - Building off Uninterrupted's unflinching ethos put into the Nike Air Force I More Than ___, the LEBRON 17 MTAA incorporates an interchangeable tongue guard and an erasable paneled midsole for players wanting to write their own personal messages. Two markers are included.

The LEBRON 17 MTAA releases globally December 25.
