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]

LeBron James Debuts Nike LeBron 15 “Long Live The King”

After a less than stellar start to the season, LeBron James single-handedly got his team back on track last night with a monumental 57 point performance against the Washington Wizards. James pulled this off in the “Ghost” colorway of his newly released Nike LeBron 15. But it was what he pulled out before the game that had everyone buzzing.

Nike LeBron 15 designer Jason Petrie went on record in months past and stated that along with zipped pairs of the 15, there would also be a strapped edition. James debuted the very-first pair of the latter last night.

Dressed in olive-green BattleKnit with a navy strap that snakes across the upper reading “Long Live The King,” James couldn’t have picked a more fitting night to break out his statement shoe. Grab a closer look at the Nike LeBron 15 Strap “Long Live The King” below and stay tuned for more details.

Experiencing the HyperAdapt 1.0 at Nike Town London

If we haven’t been introduced, I’m Hannah AKA MrsTeriyaki. Born and bred in the United Kingdom with a love for sportswear and sneakers since a kid.

I have been increasing my trips to the London capital over the last few months and have been experiencing more and more sneaker events. I always find myself engulfed in the experiences with a real passion and appreciation for the fine details these big brands give us.

So here I present the Nike Hyper Adapt 1.0 at Nike Town London.

Welcome to the Nike Hyper Adapt 1.0 / E-A-R-L space in Nike Town London.

A few weeks ago I took another trip down to London, this time a little more spontaneous. I went with the primary purpose to pick up some VaporMaxes from NikeLab 1948 but also to check out this space – fingers crossed tightly behind my back.

I was really fortunate to experience everything just like a normal customer (reservation only), which is exactly what I’d hoped for. My number one goal is to always capture the encounter with accuracy  – the impressiveness of the shoe but more so the experiential space.

Shoes are always obtainable, but the experience isn’t.

The HyperAdapt space is located where you would normally find the Sneakers Cube on the Sportswear floor of Nike Town London, Oxford Street. A major thank you to Emile and the team for allowing me to capture everything freely and experience this incredible achievement in footwear technology.

Once you pass the front desk, you are welcomed into a booth which changes colour once assigned. Take a seat and put on the VR headset.

Surprisingly, this was the first time I’d ever looked into a virtual reality world. The signal flickers and you find yourself in Tinker’s office. It’s a full 360 experience so I found myself spinning around on the chair more interested in Tinker’s sketches on the wall than his conversation with me. But I did listen, and he gives an overall insight into the Hyperadapt and where the inspiration for it came from.

Next, the exciting part…

I take a 6 but the closest available to try out was a size 7.5 (if you were thinking they looked a little large). At the time I wasn’t really able to put into words how I felt about the Hyperadapt. The experience and sensation of the shoe automatically fitting itself to your foot took words out of my mind – the entire experience blew me away.

An illuminated runway — a hat tip to the three blue dots on the heel of the HyperAdapts — runs down the spine of the room, available to those who want to test out how they look and feel. At the start is a mirrored area which captures your movement from three different camera angles, this is then sent to you via email. Another nice touch, the kind that I really appreciate.

If we ignore the self-lacing technology for a second, the HyperAdapt 1.0 is still a solid shoe. I found it comfortable and it looked nice on foot – the two major areas people like to check off before they purchase. I didn’t push them beyond that, but I was informed by staff that they were tested on athletes of multiple sports in their early stages of production. For a break-through shoe, I like that it has been kept relatively simple in its shape and colour schemes so it’s easy to match with outfits. This shoe doesn’t need anything else to do the talking.

The more I experience, the more my love for the sneaker world grows. Excellence and innovation from Nike – a killer combo. Thank you again to NTL.

Nike Air Force Max “Light Carbon” // Preview

Don C released his widely celebrated Jordan Brand shorts last week to a crowd of welcoming ’90s hoops purists and modern fans alike. The Michigan Wolverines design was the most sought after largely thanks to the nostalgia of the Fab Five. Chris Webber and company often times wore the classic “M” logo shorts alongside Charles Barkley’s Nike Air Force Max. Pairs of the retro basketball shoe are set to release soon.

Fans of the elder style can expect this “Light Carbon” edition to release soon. And although they’re not an OG pair even traditional fans of the shoe won’t be mad at this subtle rendering. Hopefully it’s the start of more leaks of the Air Force Max before official releases.
