Introducing the Nike Joyride Dual Run

November 14, 2019 - The latest silhouette to feature Nike Joyride technology, the Nike Joyride Dual Run is designed to help keep legs fresh for a range of runners — whether a first-time jogger or a veteran on a shake-out run.

Where the Nike Joyride Run Flyknit offers a full-length Joyride midsole, the new Nike Joyride Dual Run combines the benefits of Nike Joyride Beads with a more traditional running shoe feel. Featuring Nike Joyride beads in the heel and midfoot for better impact absorption and a more personal fit, the forefoot of the new Nike Joyride Dual Run is constructed of soft and responsive foam for a more traditional underfoot experience at toe-off.  

The Nike Joyride Dual Run drops November 14 for Nike Members. A global release follows December 2.

Evolution of the Swoosh: Chapter 2

November 14, 2019 - Nike’s iconic Swoosh logo, drafted in 1971 by graphic design student Carolyn Davidson, is arguably one of the most recognizable insignias in business history. A nod to the Greek Goddess of Victory, the logo’s winged design has taken various iterations over the years.

This diverse graphic design legacy is celebrated in a trio of new footwear packs, collected under “The Evolution of the Swoosh: Chapter 2,” releasing exclusively from Foot Locker, Inc. (Foot Locker, Kid's Foot Locker, Champs Sports, Eastbay, Footaction). Each carries a different articulation of the Swoosh across Flight 89, Air Max 1, Air Max Plus, Air Max 200, Air Force 1 and React 270 silhouettes.

Legend of Her Pack

Paying homage to the creator of the Swoosh logo, the Air Max and Air Max 200 in this pack employ an interlinking articulation of the Nike logo. Both shoes incorporate the messaging, “We named our shoes after a woman,” and are topped with a gold Nike Swoosh charm to the laces — an ode to Davidson’s gold Swoosh ring that Phil Knight gifted to her in 1983. The pack releases in North America November 21.

Dunk It Pack 

Created exclusively for kids, this pack uses Air Max and Air Force 1 silhouettes to celebrate the company’s brand campaigns across the ’90s and early 2000s. Inspiring activity and fun with a retro abstract design, the Dunk It Pack releases in North America November 27.

Time Capsule Pack

The Time Capsule Pack is inspired by the bold colors and look of retro Nike print ads. Across five silhouettes — Air Force 1, React 270, Flight 89, Air Max 1 and Air Max Plus — the iconic Nike Swoosh is outlined in white and overlaid with red and black interlinking logos. The Time Capsule Pack releases in North America November 27.

Future Swoosh Pack

The Future Swoosh pack for men contains Air Force 1, 270 React, Air Max 1 and Air Max Plus silhouettes — all designed with a futuristic approach to the Swoosh. The Future Swoosh Pack releases in North America December 20.

On a Scale from 1 to 10, the New Converse x Millie Bobby Brown Capsule is an 11

November 13, 2019 - Inspired by her love for DIY crafting and her style advice to be true to yourself, Mille Bobby Brown and Converse have teamed up again to bring to life three expressions of the classic Chuck Taylor and Chuck 70 silhouettes.

For the Chuck 70 silhouette, Brown chose bold color-blocking patterns in a pink palette; for the two Chucks, nuanced design features such as multi-colored eyelets and color-popped foxing tape. Most notable are the removable textile and chenille patches, embellished with Brown’s “Be You” and “Spread Love” mantras. 

The Converse x Millie Bobby Brown collection drops globally November 18 at converse.com and select retailers.

Converse x Undercover Introduces Graphic Camo Print

November 07, 2019 - Continuing an ongoing collaboration, Converse and Undercover designer Jun Takahashi combine forces on a reinterpretation of the Chuck 70 silhouette featuring a graphic camo print trussed with laced zipper guards and metal ring accents — unexpected hardware details that capture raw-edged rebellion. The shoe also has an embroidered “NW” patch for “The New Warriors," which is printed on the toecap.    

The Converse x Undercover collection (inclusive of High and Ox models) is available November 14 on converse.com and at select retailers.

November 07, 2019 - Ringtone rap. Two-step garage. Prints on denim. Pinwheels on caps. This is the stylistic milieu of the Nike Air Max Plus 3. The sneaker is new-millennium, braggadocio-made material — cutting-edge technology delivered in a sleek silhouette. 

On arrival, the shoe had a particular resonance in the United Kingdom, where it matched the street style and club scene vibe to a T and bridged the early grime era with its flashier UKG forebearer. The Tn3 was as comfortable accenting the Italian luxury streetwear of the day as it was complementing a baggy tracksuit. 

In 2019, the shoe returns true to form and with integrity intact. 

The OG Tn3 in Hyperblue is available November 8 from SNEAKRS, Foot Locker and select retailers. Hyper Violet and Wolf Grey versions drop November 30 at nike.com, Foot Locker and select retailers.

November 06, 2019 - Ahead of an international friendly, all U.S. Women's National Soccer Team Nike athletes were presented with commemorative four-star Nike boots for the U.S. team's victory in Paris. The newest star is emblazoned with a flag-inspired background, while the colorway is a golden modification of the gray Victory Pack boots worn on-pitch by the athletes during last summer's tournament. Shown above are the boots presented to forwards Alex Morgan, Mallory Pugh and Jessica McDonald and midfielder Megan Rapinoe, whose names are printed on the medial side.

The KYRIE 6 Preheat Collection

November 04, 2019 - Kyrie Irving has a special connection to number 11. It begins with his dad, Drederick Irving, who wore #11 during his basketball career; Kyrie wore it in high school and does now with Brooklyn. The connection extends to a metaphor for balance and harmony (1+1) that resonates with Kyrie, and cascades from there. "K" is the eleventh letter of the alphabet; "Kyrie Irving" is 11 letters; Irving played 11 games at Duke University; he was drafted round 1, pick 1 in the 2011 NBA draft and he surpassed the 11,000 point mark on March 11.

With a nod to Irving’s globetrotting curiosity and 11 cities with special meaning to him, the KYRIE 6 will debut with a preheat collection of 11 shoes inspired by 11 cities, including Beijing, Berlin, Guangzhou, Houston, Los Angeles, Manila, Miami, New York City, Shanghai, Taipei and Tokyo.

The KYRIE 6 preheat collection will be available November 11 exclusively in each respective city.
