Two Silhouettes, Two Colorways, One Special Meaning for Russell Westbrook

April 21, 2020 - Two colorways from Russell Westbrook's signature line — the Jordan Westbrook One Take and the Jordan Why Not? Zer0.3—feature details that honor Westbrook's late best friend and teammate.

On the Why Not? Zer0.3, a KB3 patch appears on the shoe's lateral side, while the green and desert sand color scheme is loosely inspired by camouflage print, reflecting how the two friends were always ready to go to battle for each other.

The green is more vivid in the new Jordan Westbrook One Take through its volt upper, an unconventional variation on camouflage green. Thick, overt stitching appears over the textile material with synthetic overlays. Zoom Air cushioning under the ball of the foot is paired with aggressive traction in a two-section rubber outsole.

The Jordan Westbrook One Take releases globally in its volt green colorway later this summer. The Jordan Why Not? Zer0.3 colorway releases May 11. Both silhouettes will be available in grade-school sizing.

The Latest Air Max Verona Colorways Draw Inspiration from Classic ’90s Running Shoes

April 17, 2020 - New colorways of the Nike Air Max Verona, a women’s silhouette debuted in early 2020, draw bold and bright colorway-inspiration from classic ’90s runners, including the OG white and blue Nike Air Verona (the first women's-specific Air Max), the crimson and magenta Nike Air Max 180 (the first Air Max to featured blow-molded 180 Max Air in the heel) and a women's pink and blue colorway of the 1992 Nike Air Pegasus (Nike's longest-running franchise). In addition to referencing these icons of footwear through color play, the latest Nike Air Max Verona pays homage to its ’90s predecessors with material references that include the use of classic mesh, suedes, rubber and branding.

The latest Nike Air Max Verona colorways release this Spring on the Nike App and nike.com.

The Air Force 1 LX and Air Max 98 LX Offer Personal Choice

April 16, 2020 - The latest women's Nike Air Force 1 LX and Air Max 98 LX conceal mystery colorways underneath a white upper layer made of textile, a breathable, synthetic material. That layer offers a creative function: Wearers can peel back as much — or as little — material for a one-of-a-kind design. (The shoe packaging provides additional details to guide the creative process.) Both styles will be available with two distinct premium lower layers.

The NSW Women's Air Force 1 LX and Air Max 98 LX are available this spring on nike.com and the Nike App.

2000s Vibes Define the Nike Alphina 5000

April 15, 2020 - Though the name might remind of ’90s slang, the vibe of the new Nike Alphina 5000 is pure 2000s. The look is conveyed by a bold use of a generation-defining technology, Nike Flywire. Introduced in 2008, Flywire creates a lightweight system of support through principles inspired by the cables from suspension bridges. On the Alphina 5000, the articulation of Flywire celebrates its initial aesthetic, whether in multi-color bursts or more subdued tones. The shoe’s bold TPU Swoosh panel gives added dimension to the lateral side, as does the sculpted midsole. Paying homage to the classic 2000s Bowerman Series of running shoes, the sole unit is also cored out at key points and given a playful asymmetry. In combination, the shoe's elements bring a new interpretation to chunky athletic nostalgia.  

The Nike Alphina 5000 releases this spring. 

April 10, 2020 - Before “athleisure” and “dad shoe” joined our everyday vernacular, the fitness boom of the 1980s birthed the idea of the cross trainer. With it, Nike unleashed a string of bold, industry-defining designs suited for wear in the weight room, on the court and across turf. An unintended, but swiftly realized, product of those arresting designs was a versatile adoption by the era’s musical subcultures. 

Introduced in 1990, the Air Cross Trainer 3 Low extends aesthetic cues from the Air Trainer SC High. It was defined by a subtle upper color scheme, accented by pops of color on the tongue and midsole — a characteristic that remains in its 2020 version. This shoe maintains a subdued tech vibe suitable for a range of daily activities.

The Nike Air Cross Trainer 3 Low is available this spring on nike.com.

April 10, 2020 - Translating the chunky look and feel of a Max Air unit to a sandal, the Nike Air Max Koko debuts for summer 2020.

The shoe translates to a funky, elevated, high-tech take on a summer staple. The Nike Air Max Koko is available now on nike.com.

Neymar Jr. Mercurial Vapor Jogo Prismático

April 06, 2020 - Neymar Jr. never stops inventing, refracting the harsh glare of the spotlight into a brilliant spectrum of athleticism. It’s those prismatic elements of Neymar Jr. that serve as the inspiration for Nike’s special edition Neymar Jr. Mercurial Vapor Jogo Prismático: a boot that is the embodiment of the player.

A bold expression of all he brings on and off the pitch, Neymar Jr.’s latest player edition boot is packed with character. From the Ousadia (Daring) and Alegria (Joy) printed on the heels of the boot corresponding to Neymar Jr.’s tattoos on his legs, to the boot's aesthetic nods to the dynamic 2019 Mercurial Vapor Speed Freak, this boot weaves in elements of Neymar Jr. and Nike Football history throughout its design. Also underscoring Neymar Jr.'s longstanding relationship with Nike, this boot highlights the stars of his first Mercurial player edition — the 2017 “Written in the Stars” Mercurial Vapor  — hidden amongst the kaleidoscopic print. For the first time, Neymar Jr.’s latest player edition boot also employs his new NJR signature logo; the previous NJR logo is used as a secondary detail within the pattern.

The Neymar Jr. Mercurial Vapor Jogo Prismático is available April 6 on nike.com.
