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.

May 03, 2019 - An OG colorway from 2009, the Nike Zoom Kobe IV Protro "White/Black Del Sol" releases May 24 on SNKRS in North America.

May 03, 2019 - This exclusive colorway of the Nike P-6000 captures the local energy of Copenhagen's female-focused sneaker boutique Naked. Inspiration from the Danish city's underground techno scene is expressed via distinct volt-yellow overlays. The silhouette also delivers on Copenhagen's stylish retro tech vibes by incorporating elements of the Nike Air Pegasus 2006.

On top, the shoe comes in reflective synthetic leather and a two-tone mesh upper, complete with that on-trend volt pop. On the bottom, a waffle outsole brings vintage flavor to the model.

The shoe will re-release May 7 via the SNEAKRS apps in Europe.

May 03, 2019 - The new colorway is an evolution of the LEBRON 16 x HFR and brings new energy through a bold chartreuse base.

April 30, 2019 - The Jordan Brand Summer 2019 Women’s collection incorporates both classic silhouettes and forward-looking styles.

Converse x JW Anderson Deliver GLITTER for the Summer Season

April 30, 2019 - Since 2017, Converse and JW Anderson have produced more than 25 creations. Each silhouette has continually fused Converse’s iconic made-for-everyone attitude with JW Anderson’s forward-thinking, boundary-pushing aesthetic.
 
The latest result celebrates the GLITTER_GUTTER collection that launched the partnership. It includes a Chuck 70 available in three tri-panel colorways and finished with a complementary fuzzy lace. The newly created Run Star Hike — one-part Chuck, one-part runner — is available for the first time in tri-panel mismatched Glitter, the original colorways from the first GLITTER_GUTTER drop.
 
The Converse x JW Anderson Run Star Hike Glitter and Chuck 70s will be available May 9.

April 25, 2019 - The latest version of Nike’s toughest training shoe plays off tactical weight vests, which the fittest of the fit wear to help maximize effort while they run, pull-up, push-up, air squat and more.

Each pair comes with at least five patches inspired by military nostalgia, but with a Nike twist (like a feisty bee from an old fighter jet reaching for a kettlebell or a tornado lifting weights.)

Attachable by VELCRO® brand fastener, the patches can be applied to the shoe’s tongue and back-half of the upper. Athletes can stand out on the rubber floor or the street by adding patches from their gym, vest or favorite athlete to the mix. 

The 4 XD boasts all the brawn of the Metcon 4 plus a new dense pattern of strategically zoned haptic print (inspired by barbell knurling) that helps to further enhance durability across the mid and forefoot.

The Nike Metcon 4 XD Patches will be available in Nike Special Field System Collection colors (tan, army green and triple black for men; dusty pink, lavender, and gray for women) May 3 on nike.com and at select retailers. Each colorway has a slightly different mix of patches, and the patches are not sold separately. 

April 23, 2019 - With an upper inspired by the Nike Internationalist (check the eyestay and heel clip) and Nike React technology underfoot, the Nike React Element 55 carries an understated stance and delivers a smooth ride.

While those traits remain consistent, the shoe’s aesthetic can now be distorted with customization opportunities through Nike By You, which allows for a choice of experimental materials and trims. These are augmented by a bold color palette that takes hazmat and firefighting suits as inspiration on a breathable open leno woven mesh upper.

Additionally, new colorways of the Nike React Element 55 are on the horizon (including color-shifting Black/Black-Laser Fuschsia-White and Black/Black-Tour Yellow-White uppers, as well as a clean, white-based trio with hits of University Red, Game Royal or Pure Platinum) . 

The Nike React Element 55 By You is available beginning May 2.
