February 09, 2018 - This special-edition Nike Metcon 4 comes in two complementary colorways to represent how dynamic duos can bring out the best in one another — specifically, workout partners who help each other push through the toughest training moments.
Functional fitness pros, Nike athletes and real-life power couple Lauren Fisher and Rasmus Andersen embody the strength and heart found in a perfect partnership. “Having a relationship with someone not only outside of the gym, but inside of the gym, means that we hold each other accountable and we make sure we stay on track with our goals,” said Fisher.
These training shoes reflect this accountability and interconnectedness through reverse mirror-image detailing (one shoe is black while the other is white, one has a solid Swoosh and the other has a transparent one and so on). Additionally, the purple and yellow accent colors on the heel and eyelets are exact opposites on the color wheel, meaning they perfectly complement each other.
The special-edition Nike Metcon 4 will be available in men’s (black) and women’s (white) sizes February 14 on nike.com and at select retailers.
July 18, 2018 - The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 FlyEase combines the responsive cushioning of full-length Zoom Air with the adaptive technology of the FlyEase closure system. Free of laces, the closure system connects a hook-and-loop strap to a wraparound zipper, allowing the runner to put the shoe on or take it off in one fluid motion. Featuring the same performance technology as its non-FlyEase version, the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 FlyEase retains a supportive Zoom Air / cushion foam midsole, an out-turned collar from the Achilles for comfort and a beveled heel.
The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35 FlyEase releases July 18 on nike.com.
July 18, 2018 - The NIke Dangeruss Wilson 1 takes its inspiration from the dual dynamism of quarterback Russell Wilson — powering his goals in the gym and polishing his look outside of it. The shoe includes a heel Air Max bag for performance and comfort, while the patent leather on the tongue and the added butter leather on the mud guard provide a classy look for the red carpet (or other formal affairs). Wilson’s number three, also a symbol of wholeness and consistency, informs other features of the shoe.
The Dangeruss Wilson 1 is available for purchase July 19 on nike.com in North America, as well as Nike and Nordstrom stores in Seattle and Portland.
July 16, 2018 - The Nike Golf Tour Premiere PE is wrapped in a bold tartan print that reflects (and respects) the pattern’s Scottish roots on the eve of the third major of the year.
Considered one of the most difficult golf courses in the world, the Scottish links course is appropriately nicknamed “Car-nasty” thanks to its exposure to heavy winds along the country's Angus coastline, its narrow layout, and its maddeningly-placed pot bunkers; the Golf Tour Premiere PE honors the course’s rigor with “NASTY” printed on the outsole. The shoe’s secure lockdown design includes a quick-pull top strap for tightening and a tab for easy loosening.
Limited quantities of the Nike Golf Tour Premiere PE will be available July 19 on nike.com in North America and Europe.
June 29, 2018 - Celebrating Serena’s return to London's grass courts, the Serena x Air Force 1 iD “Strong and Sure” is customizable via NIKEiD with options that include premium leather, two outsoles and gold-plated accents. A Serena-inspired S upper and limited-edition branding options are also available.
The limited NIKEiD style will be available July 2 on nike.com. In North America, NikePlus Members will get exclusive access to the style in the Nike App.
June 28, 2018 - Think of the Kyrie Low as a democratized version of Kyrie Irving's signature series. It has many of the same features: Zoom cushioning, distinctive modeling on the upper and a curved sole unit built for quick cuts. However, it puts increased emphasis on comfort.
"Kyrie wanted his Low to have everything his signature game shoes have had, but retooled with an all-day play component," explains designer Benjamin Nethongkome.
Most apparent is the shift in cushioning. Whereas the Kyrie 4 has a top-loaded Zoom unit (it sits below the foot for immediate engagement), the Zoom on the Low is bottom loaded, which allows for a softer underfoot experience. There are heel and forefoot units too, maximizing ride against a variety of court surfaces. A new concentric traction system, derived from the Kobe 10, finishes off the tooling.
The Kyrie Low releases June 29.
June 25, 2018 - Debuted earlier this month by Paul George himself, the PG 2.5 takes cues from both of George’s signature models in a package built for summer gaming (on both the courts and the sticks).
"We wanted to refresh the silhouette and keep evolving it," shares designer Tony Hardman. "Paul wanted to put the strap from the PG1 on it, and this allowed us us to approach the element in a different way. Instead of incorporating Flywire as we did on the original, we conceived a new strap for the PG 2.5 built from a new webbing."
The PG 2.5 releases June 30.
June 22, 2018 - The Nike SB Zoom Killshot 2 QS was created in collaboration with Hockey, the partner brand to world-famous FA Skateboards. The shoes feature Hockey branding across the back of the heel and the company's logo on the sockliner.
Hockey's choice of silhouette, the Killshot 2, has origins on the squash court (in fact, the name derives from a hard, swift shot that rolls off the ground, rendering it impossible for an opponent to pick the ball up off a bounce). The shoe was first released in the late '70s and remained popular for court sports through the early '80s. In the 2000s, it returned as a niche menswear favorite. This is the first time the Killshot 2 has been fitted for skateboarding.
The Nike SB Zoom Killshot 2 QS launches globally June 29 at select retailers.
June 18, 2018 - The Nike Sportswear EXP-X14 both remembers Nike’s history and pushes the boundaries of lifestyle footwear through the use of numbers and transparent design elements. Here’s what you need to know about it.
The name and numbers
- EXP is shorthand for “experiment,” which was essentially how the Nike Sportswear designers adapted performance running features into a lifestyle shoe.
- The second part of the shoe’s name, X14, was the original internal codename for Nike React technology (which is used in the shoe’s midsole to provide cushion for all-day comfort).
- N3546, which is printed on the medial side, represents Steve Prefontaine’s fastest mile (3 minutes and 54.6 seconds) and nods to Nike’s rich history in running.
- With its translucent upper, this shoe is a modern take on the Nike Zoom Drive (a late-90s running shoe).
- The exposed TPU plate that cuts across the midsole and tapered heel emulate the Nike Zoom Vaporfly 4% shoes worn by Breaking2 athletes.
The Nike Sportswear EXP-X14 will be available beginning June 28 via SNEAKRS in Europe. From July 5, the shoe will be available from the Nike SNKRS app in North America, Greater China on nike.com and at select retailers.
June 15, 2018 - At golf’s second major championship of the year, Nike athletes will lace up PEs inspired by Nike’s signature orange shoebox to celebrate 30 years of Nike’s Just Do It slogan. Silhouettes include the Tour Premiere, Lunar Control Vapor 2 and Lunar Command 2.
Limited quantities of the Nike Golf Tour Premiere PE, shown here, will be available June 15 on nike.com in North America.
