November 07, 2019 - Ringtone rap. Two-step garage. Prints on denim. Pinwheels on caps. This is the stylistic milieu of the Nike Air Max Plus 3. The sneaker is new-millennium, braggadocio-made material — cutting-edge technology delivered in a sleek silhouette. 

On arrival, the shoe had a particular resonance in the United Kingdom, where it matched the street style and club scene vibe to a T and bridged the early grime era with its flashier UKG forebearer. The Tn3 was as comfortable accenting the Italian luxury streetwear of the day as it was complementing a baggy tracksuit. 

In 2019, the shoe returns true to form and with integrity intact. 

The OG Tn3 in Hyperblue is available November 8 from SNEAKRS, Foot Locker and select retailers. Hyper Violet and Wolf Grey versions drop November 30 at nike.com, Foot Locker and select retailers.

Nike SB x Oski Drop Orange Label Collection

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.

Commemorative Boots for Megan Rapinoe

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 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.

A Campsite Classic Gets an All-Day Comfort Update

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.

A Career Immortalized: Barry Sanders’ On-Field Contributions Honored on Latest Nike Air Zoom Turf Jet 97

November 27, 2019 - Barry Sanders stepped away from the National Football League after the 1998 season, but the sentiment that he’s one of the greatest to play the game rings as true now as it did more than two decades ago. 

To commemorate 20 years since the Hall of Famer and former Detroit Lions running back hung up his trainers, the company is immortalizing Sanders’ playing career on the shoe he knows best: the Nike Air Zoom Turf Jet 97.  

Sanders wore the shoe during his professional career and it helped him solidify a reputation as one of the best running backs of all-time.

With only 2,053 units made — the same number as the most yards Sanders rushed in a single season (1997) — the limited-edition Air Zoom Turf Jet 97 employs the Detroit Lions' team colors, team name and Sanders’ retired number 20 on the midfoot strap. 

“I played high school football for four years, college football for three years and professional football for 10 years, yet I have been a Nike spokesperson for 30," says Sanders. "It is such a huge honor that they are bringing back this shoe in my honor, and I can’t thank Nike enough on behalf of my fans everywhere.”

Ahead of the Detroit Lions’ Thanksgiving home game against the Chicago Bears, Sanders will serve as the Lions’ honorary game-day captain — taking the field once more in a pair of shoes that immortalize his success on it.

Barry Sanders’ Nike Air Zoom Turf Jet 97 first drops at the Lions Team Shop on November 27 (250 pairs) and then on nike.com on November 28 at 9:30 a.m. PT, in alignment with the team's Thanksgiving game kickoff.
