July 17, 2017 - 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).

The Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% in Ice Blue/Bright Crimson/University Red/Blue Fox will be available July 20 at select retailers, Nike+ in North America, and on nike.com in other locations around the world.

May 24, 2017 - Last November marked the release of the Special Field Air Force 1, a shoe that fuses two of Nike's most iconic shoes for winter, the Special Field Boot and the Air Force 1. Today, the shoe — known simply as the SF AF-1 — evolves into a mid, maintaining the adjustable ankle straps, premium, full grain leather and rip stop ballistic nylon of the high.

The Special Field Air Force 1 Mid debuts with engineered, tiger-stripe camouflage jacquard and a double-zipper entry at the heel. Text on the lateral side of the shoe is grounded in the aesthetic of technical specifications. Urban Utility Footwear refers to the product's function, and Summer '17 refers to the season.
