August 10, 2017 - Lance Mountain first laid eyes on the Nike Blazer not in person, but in the pages of skateboard magazines. “In ’78, the Blazer started showing up a lot,” he recalls. “A lot of top pro guys at that time were wearing the Blazer. That's how I first saw it. It was always on my radar — part of my youth. When I got on Nike, I went straight to that shoe.”
The Nike SB Zoom Blazer Mid Lance Mountain honors the legendary skater’s affinity for pool skating, as well as his fondness for a silhouette he lusted after in childhood and earned as a pro. The color scheme reflects a common conceit in Mountain’s skate graphics — ‘70s-era prism-fades on concert posters — and the tiles from Mountain’s favored skate environment, pools.
“Pool skating is the street skating of vert. Instantly in the ‘70s, pools were mimicked in skate parks. And so the level of skateboarding grew from a backyard pool to a skate park pool, and then over the years they have refined and gotten bigger and bigger,” explains Mountain. “I skate pools. That’s where I skate. In the last 10 years, I’ve rarely skated other things.”
Fittingly, the Nike SB Zoom Blazer Mid Lance Mountain’s graphic embellishments nod to the continuity of Mountain’s fanaticism for pools. The heel has a tile treatment, and within it features a tile-like debossing, with “78” referencing the year Mountain first remembers seeing the Blazer regularly in skate mags. The right shoe reads "17" to represent both the present day and a nod to the future.
It's available starting August 17 on Nike+ SNKRS, nike.com and at select retailers.

November 05, 2018 - Before a canvas sneaker stepped onto a basketball court and before the Chuck Taylor All Star became a globally recognized symbol of self-expression, Marquis Converse founded the Converse Rubber Shoe Company in 1908. Ten rubber galoshes, Converse’s first products, were produced on April 30, 1909. In the beginning, the company also created triple tread tires, leather duck hunting boots and hockey pucks.
During the World War II, Converse, like many American companies, shifted production efforts to supporting the troops. Its rubber origins contributed to the manufacturing of rubber boots, canvas training boots, weatherized gear and reversible camouflage ponchos.
The utility of these heritage items shaped the new Converse Mountain Club capsule. Specifically, Converse was inspired by the Extreme Cold Weather Boot, a rubber military boot developed in the 1950s and once produced by Converse.
Using this utility design lens, the new collection reinterprets three classic Converse styles — the Chuck Taylor All Star, One Star and Fastbreak — adding GORE-TEX® technology to make the shoes waterproof. The result: The Mountain Club line is at once stylish and functional.
Converse Mountain Club is available from Converse and at select retailers November 8.

October 18, 2018 - In the summer of 2017, Tyler, the Creator began reinterpreting the Converse One Star with a flower motif that now defines his signature GOLF le FLEUR* collection.

Designed with a burlap and vintage parchment canvas upper and asymmetrical GOLF le FLEUR* print, Tyler offers a distinct, creative take on the classic Chuck 70. In the new collection, the burlap upper is also added to the signature GOLF le FLEUR* One Star.
