July 13, 2017 - In celebration of the 15th anniversary of the Nike SB Dunk, Nike SB is re-releasing four original Nike SB Dunk Lows remastered as Highs throughout the year. The SB Dunks were designed by pro skaters Reese Forbes, Gino Iannucci, Richard Mulder and Danny Supa in 2002.

"You can imagine how good it felt. The biggest sneaker company in the world asking Reese, Richard, Supa and myself to come up with our own spin on the Dunk. There was so much to absorb being on the Nike campus for the first time," remembers Iannucci. "My intro to the design team was interesting. We all sat round table and just talked shoes and skateboarding. It was intimate and the vibe was very humble and easy going."

The third in the current remaster series is Iannucci's premium black and dark blue colorway. "I just wanted to use colors I knew I'd actually wear and perforated leather I have always loved. The suede and leather combo seemed solid, so it was as simple as that," Iannuci says of his original design. 

Reflecting on the return of the colorway, now in hightop form, he notes, "When there's a true love for something you understand the importance of respecting the past as well as embracing the future."

The Nike SB Dunk High Pro Gino is available July 27 on SNKRS, nike.com and at select retailers.

April 19, 2017 - A cult favorite from Australia to France, the Nike Air Max Plus (popularly known as the TN, in reference to its tuned air) matched bold color with a brash stance on arrival in 1998. Since then, the shoe has carried both glorious color fades and muted tones. In both, the strength of the silhouette is undeniable. In latest incarnation, for NikeLab, the Air Max Plus sheds its typical plastic toe bumper in favor of a heavy tumble, soft full-grain leather (balanced by a buffed leather heel overlay), but loses none of its tough appeal.  

The NikeLab Air Max Plus is available starting April 25 on nike.com/nikelab and at select retailers.

April 18, 2017 - This is the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4%, the shoe that crossed the finish line first in Boston yesterday — twice. Nike athletes Geoffrey Kirui, Galen Rupp and Suguru Osako took first, second and third in the men’s elite field, while Edna Kiplagat earned first and Jordan Hasay nabbed third in the women’s race all wearing versions of this shoe.

The Zoom Vaporfly 4% pairs a Nike ZoomX midsole (for responsive cushioning) with a full-length carbon plate (intended to minimize energy loss during toe bend without increasing demand for the calf). Together, these features can make runners up to four percent more efficient than Nike’s previous fastest marathon shoe.

The Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% will be available June 8 on nike.com and at select retailers.
