Converse Artist Series Curated by Tyler, the Creator

November 20, 2018 - Artist Series is a new global Foot Locker exclusive collection curated by Tyler, the Creator. The sneakers feature art by Wyatt Navarro, Tyler’s friend, and Norwegian Øyvind Lauvdahl, who he discovered on Instagram.

The themes Navarro and Lauvdahl convey through their artwork are at once similar and unique to their local realities.  

Wyatt's doodles on the Converse Chuck 70 form a dreamy, semi-colorful print on parchment canvas reminiscent of vibrant Los Angeles street art. Meanwhile, Øyvind’s melancholy black-and-white scheme on the One Star conveys the isolation of Norway in the dark winter months. The two artists also collaborated on a Chuck 70, presented with split side designs to show their contrasting creative points of view.

The three sneakers release November 26.

Nike x Carhartt WIP Collection

November 19, 2018 - Nike and Carhartt WIP come together to release a footwear collection that combines Nike’s iconic sneaker silhouettes with Carhartt WIP’s signature fabrics.
 
Established in 1989, Carhartt Work In Progress (WIP) takes the rough and rugged spirit of original Carhartt work wear and refines and adapts it for a new audience — one appreciative of considered, durable garments, but also a contemporary design perspective. For this collection, core Carhartt WIP materials, such as Dearborn Canvas in Hamilton Brown and black and Camo Tiger Ripstop, are used to update signature Nike sneakers: the Air Force 1 Low, Vandal Supreme High, Air Force 1 Low Utility and Air Max 95.
 
The footwear drops December 6 via nike.com, the SNKRS and SNKEAKRS apps, as well as at select retailers.

Sheck Wes Curates the Inaugural NYC Editions Collection

November 15, 2018 - Harlem-born entertainer and athlete Sheck Wes is the inaugural curator of Nike’s new program, NYC Editions. The scheme celebrates New York City through partnerships with local creatives, allows the curators access to classic Nike silhouettes as a canvas for self-expression and relays homegrown stories. 

With Wes, NYC Editions tips-off with a bicoastal flavor. He nods to his current life, split between NYC and LA, by finding commonality in a love for basketball.   

Wes’s product assortment is highlighted by two footwear choices: An Air Max 95 and a Blazer Mid. Color schemes from both, which balance New York’s noteworthy orange and LA’s unmistakable purple, inform the Sheck Wes NYC Editions apparel. Within the mix are two T-shirts, a long sleeve T-shirt, hoodie, short and pant. All reflect Wes’s move from east to west, and capture a gritty graphic aesthetic. 

Nike will celebrate the inaugural NYC Editions collection curated by Sheck Wes at Social Studies NYC. The footwear will be available November 16 at Nike stores and select retailers.
