November 21, 2018 - The Nike PG 2.5 x PlayStation, inspired by the color-matching of the original PS system, connects Paul George and his love for gaming at a time when he's found a new role for the pastime in his life — off-court restoration.
“Before, I played video games just because it was fun,” George says. “Now I do it because that’s how I relax. I need an exit from reality sometimes, to get away, to be in a different place and different moment.”
This PG 2.5 features a pattern of the iconic PlayStation symbols through the shoe’s counter and the heel. New to the 2.5 is the original gray of the first console and the classic four-color PlayStation logo on the left shoe — an alternate take on the PG2’s light-up tongue.
Paul George’s signature line shows an evolution of his gaming affinity. The sockliner of the PG1 included a video game rendering of George. In early 2018, George debuted the PG2 in a colorway inspired by the PS4's DualShock4 controller.
The Nike PG 2.5 x PlayStation will appear during his November 21 away game versus the Golden State Warriors. The shoe will release globally December 1 on the SNKRS app and at select retailers.
December 11, 2019 - The Converse Pro Leather was first released in 1976, and during the 1980s, it was no stranger to competitive glory. The shoe was victorious on collegiate and professional stages, and Converse itself was an official sponsor of the United States’ national team during the period.
The latest colorway of the Pro Leather celebrates this rich history with a classic white and navy color scheme. An egret suede eyerow and matching midsole add a subtle retro touch, and the classic Star Chevron is augmented by quintessential Pro Leather gold foil branding stamped on the lateral side of the shoe. An American flag sockliner honors the silhouette’s achievements.
Available in both Hi and Ox versions, this colorway of the Converse Pro Leather launches December 11 at KITH and releases globally December 21.
December 09, 2019 - Nike is highlighting two Oregon-based companies — Seamus Golf, an accessory brand, and Pendleton Woolen Mills — in a variation of the Nike Golf Air Zoom Victory Tour. The outsole plate and sockliner draw from the jacquard woolen designs on the Seamus x Pendleton headcovers, a collaborative project between the two Pacific Northwest companies that began in 2015. The Pendleton wordmark adorns a tag on the lateral side.
The Nike Golf x Seamus Air Zoom Victory Tour releases December 12 on nike.com and at select retailers.
December 09, 2019 - The Converse All Star Pro BB "Nocturnal" adds a fresh twist to the brand's latest performance basketball shoe with the addition of a glow-in-the-dark sole unit. In vibe, it carries a cheeky nod to a previous holiday edition of an Eric Avar classic. In practice, the shoe also celebrates Converse's two-decades-long legacy of experimentation with phosphorescence.
Converse initiated glow-in-the-dark designs in 1987, when both uppers and outsoles of the Chuck were first illuminated. This was a step in the continued evolution of the icon — pushing beyond prints to augment the presence of the sneaker on the streets. Now, with the All Star Pro BB, the luminous look adds to the energetic statements made on the shoe's upper since the silhouette's debut in April.
The Converse All Star Pro BB "Nocturnal" releases December 12 in China and December 15 in North America.
December 08, 2019 - Week 14 of the 2019 pro football season brings another edition to Odell Beckham Jr.'s pregame warmup cleats: a playful take on the wide receiver's support of an animal rescue shelter in Cleveland.
OBJ's cleats take the field December 8 ahead of the Cleveland Browns' away game against the Cincinnati Bengals, and will also be worn in game.
December 04, 2019 - Nike SB has teamed up with Oskar Rozenberg-Hallberg, better known as Oski, to introduce the skater’s first Orange Label Collection. Weaving a Swoosh shark design throughout the shoes and apparel, Oski intentionally employs the king of the ocean as a representation of mastering any skill.
“I’ve always been intimidated of sharks,” says Oski. “They look so brutal and they move so skillfully through the water. They are the kings of their environment in my eyes. One of my favorite animals and just really iconic looking. I feel like if you can do anything as effortless as a [shark] can swim, you’re doing it right.”
The Nike SB Oski Orange Label Blazer and apparel, including a jacket, hoodie, top and T-shirt, launch December 14 and the Nike SB Oski Orange Label Dunk launches December 21. The collection is available globally at local skate shops.
December 03, 2019 - Originally released exclusively in Japan in 2002, the Nike Dunk Low Pro B Viotech made waves beyond its initial locale. In fact, the vibrant color scheme, rich materials and instant recognition made the shoe one of the premier Dunk colorways of its era — a defining icon of the burgeoning streetwear scene and a must-have for the sneaker cognoscenti. A reissue in 2013 (with minor color and badging updates) reaffirmed the Viotech legend.
For 2019, the Nike Dunk Low Viotech follows the same color specs as its antecedents and employs the original woven tag on the tongue. The heel features “NIKE” in black stitching, faithful to the 2002 version.
The Nike Dunk Low Viotech releases December 10 on Nike SNKRS and SNEAKERS, and at NikeLab locations and select retailers.
December 02, 2019 - In recognition of Megan Rapinoe’s most recent accolade, and in a year of massive achievements, Nike presents commemorative boots made specially for her.
The pink and gold colorway draws inspiration from Rapinoe’s signature hair color and the trophies she has won. Her first and last name appear prominently on the lateral sides of the boot, with “Just Do It’ on the medial side. The heel counter and sockliner carry the four stars Rapinoe and her American teammates proudly sport on their national team jerseys.
One-of-a-kind boots for a one-of-a-kind player, this special edition will not be sold at retail.
December 02, 2019 - Initially released in 1994, the Nike ACG Moc was designed for campsite R&R; the simple upper and soft sole unit offered just enough coverage and gave feet space to breathe after a tough hike or long trail run.
The redesigned ACG Moc 3.0 packages these characteristics in a new Footscape-inspired chassis with Nike Solarsoft cushioning and an asymmetrical easy-on, easy-off upper. This means the Moc still serves campsite recovery, and now also assists in making casual days in the city more comfortable.
The Nike ACG Moc 3.0 launches December 9 with the Union-exclusive Cheetah print colorway at Union LA and Union Japan. New colorways release globally January 1 on nike.com and select retailers.
