Nike Air Monarch IV Snow Day

December 17, 2018 - The special-edition Nike Air Monarch IV Snow Day arrives with an all-white, full-grain leather upper embellished with a chrome silver Swoosh and iridescent outsole — the overall effect reminiscent of a glistening, snowy day.

The sherpa collar nods to warm slippers, and the sockliner frames an imprinted Swoosh on freshly-fallen snow. A pop of orange on the midsole symbolizes a snowman’s carrot nose. Plus, a snowman figure is hidden in the embroidery details on the heel.

This New Women's Silhouette Brings Modern Elegance to Air

December 11, 2018 - A four-female footwear collective, made up of a designer, engineer, developer and product manager, is responsible for the expressive new Nike Air Max Dia

The design (which was completed on an accelerated timeline) of the women’s exclusive silhouette began by prioritizing the last, working diligently to achieve a tapered (but democratic) toe-box. The result was a shoe with beautiful proportion — a nod to both craft and utility.

A deconstructed translucent Nexkin upper (a vessel to show personality through sock choice), low collar and big lift combine to complete the modern look. The four dots on the heel represent the four disciplines that brought the shoe to life — a reminder of the power of collaboration. 

The tooling is perhaps the shoe's true signature feature. The Dia's elegant stack height is derived from the team's established goal for the shoe: to highlight the Air unit in the biggest way possible.

With that wish came a ton of questions, including things like what the heel would have to look like, where it would affect the shoe’s design and how to make it look beautiful rather than bulky. It also called for more foam, resulting in more comfort.

Limited quantities of the Nike Air Max Dia will be available December 13 on the Nike App and at select retailers followed by a wider release January 25.

Nike KYRIE 5 PE "Little Mountain"

December 10, 2018 - The Nike KYRIE 5 PE "Little Mountain" was created for Kyrie Irving for his game against the Chicago Bulls on December 8, 2018.

The shoe's tongue features a Standing Rock Sioux Tribal seal decal, a nod to Irving's late mother, Elizabeth Ann Larson, who was an enrolled member. "Little Mountain" appears on the toe box, which refers to the Lakota name officially bestowed to Irving in August by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe.

Together, the shoe's details reflect Irving's desire to relay personal, connective stories with different colorways of the KYRIE 5.
