Patta and Nike Produce Friends and Family Air Span II Collaboration

Amsterdam-based retailer Patta has worked alongside Nike several times in the past. The two have partnered to produce striking iterations of the Air Max 1, Cortez, and more to great success. Now they turn their attention to the ’90s centric Air Span II that is previewed for the first time today.

This friends and family release is subtle in nature given its white, grey and black palette. Lively pops of orange are sprinkled throughout the silhouette while Patta branding appears dead center at the shoes tongue. To close, the collaboration is finished with a special-edition “Publicity, Publicity, Wohooooow” box designed by Linda van Deursen.

Grab a look at the Patta x Nike Air Span II collaboration below.

Air Jordan 13 “Oregon Ducks” PE is Limited to Friends and Family

Earlier this month you may remember a grey Air Jordan 13 produced in limited numbers for the Oregon Ducks basketball team. Today, shown by Jordan Brand in an official capacity, is another Air Jordan 13 in more traditional team shades for the Ducks football program.

Set to a white leather base alongside suede green overlays and a lime green liner, Oregon’s “O” branding appears prominently at the tongue while the logo also shines through the hologram at the heel. Adding to the long list of stellar Ducks exclusives, this Air Jordan 13 “Oregon Ducks” PE is limited to friends and family of the football program. Thus, give them a detailed look below as they won’t be available at retailers any time soon.

John Elliott x Nike Air Force 1 Low “Friends and Family” to Debut at ComplexCon

Not that long ago, John Elliott was writing letters to Nike in hopes of one day designing sneakers for the brand. Fast forward to years later and Nike is asking him to do just that. Following the success of his Nike Vandal collaboration, Nike asked John to produce an Air Force 1 in honor of the shoe’s 35th anniversary. The offer, though, came with a stipulation.

John was tasked to re-imagine the shoe using its traditional white-on-white canvas. No other color was allowed. Thus, his approach to the shoe was by aesthetically altering its dimensions. He smartly reduced layers in an effort to evoke shadow, doubling up the overlays and cutting the Swoosh out of the foxing and replacing it with pebbled leather underneath. Other subtle details like the reduced eyelets and double layered tongue add depth and presence to the classic design.

This John Elliott x Nike Air Force 1 Low will be available only to friends and family at ComplexCon this weekend.

FINALLY…Beyond excited to share these!!! About a year ago, we had the opportunity to work on the 35th anniversary project for what is in my opinion the most iconic shoe ever, the @nike Air Force 1. There was one stipulation: it had to be all white. When tasked with working on such a culturally significant silhouette under the restriction of keeping it in an all white palette, I wanted to make sure that we included our DNA in the silhouette and tried to craft details that could potentially create color. To me the only way to do that was by adding and reducing layers to create shadows. Since this shoe is so rare lets run through some of what makes it special: Each overlay is doubled up to add dimension. We die-cut the swoosh out of the foxing and quarter and put pebbled leather underneath to create the appearance of it going inward and to create shadows. We took this layering theme and applied it to the smallest details – everything from a layered deubré, double lace keepers, layered aglets, and a double (layered) tongue. We then reduced small details like eyelets and vents down to a bead size. The finished product is something that I am excited to own and share with friends and family members this weekend at ComplexCon. [email protected]

Another Look at the PSNY x Air Jordan 12 for Friends & Family

Earlier today we showed you preview pics of the Friends & Family PSNY x Air Jordan 12, but now we have an even better look thanks to Brooklyn’s Finest, THE New York Giant, God’s Favorite DJ, DJ Clark Kent.  (Yes, that is the proper introduction for Clark.)

The black nubuck upper and white bottom really comes to life in these photos which has many of us asking ourselves, are these Air Jordan 12s better than the pair that released?

Clark Kent is on the short list of friends and familia of Public School receiving the pair that is just one of fifty.


Been holding back on these for weeks.. Congrats To My Younger Brothers @alldaydaoyi & @maxwellosborne | These Are #KILLER (It’s Good To Be A Friend Who Is Family.) • One Of Fifty • #PSNY

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Gift Upcoming Yeezy Releases to Friends & Family

The notion of “having friends in high places” seems to bode well for a variety of individuals. Although nepotism is despised by plenty, the previously depicted notion works incredibly well if that aforementioned friend within a “high place” has his very own sneaker. Friends of Kanye West can attest to this, as he and his wife Kim Kardashian are gifting special iterations of the upcoming adidas Yeezy Boost 350 to friends and family.

With Kylie Jenner, Joe Perez and Mark Seekings all receiving special pairs, they each took to their respective Instagram accounts to showoff the new kicks. Featuring tonal hues of sand-like detailing throughout the upper, this colorway may easily be the best of the year. Although Kylie Jenner would take things even further with the all-back 750s, the gifts provided by the West’s this holiday season has me looking at my friends with unrealistic expectations of gift giving.
