[ THE DROP DATE ] Everyone already knows that the first ever colourway of the Nike Air Max 1 will be coming our way sometime early in the new year, but we're curious as to whether it'll be able to pull off its acronym tags with confidence and have us deliberating whether we need another pair of the reds in our cupboards.
[ SIZE? ] When the Nike Free was introduced in 2004, it was a massive breakthrough in performance running, a time when other brands were using bulky cushioning and heavily padded support. The base, or alien-like sole, was where all your attention was focused towards, until you actually put a pair on.
[ CROOKED TONGUES ] If somebody told us they didn't like the Nike Air Terra Humara, we'd be inclined to charge at them and start pummeling them in the head.
[ CROOKED TONGUES ] The Nike Challenge Court has been a welcome reintroduction for 2012. That height and material mix makes this pivotal John McEnroe shoe a genuine icon and with the success of the Blazer, we can see Nike eating the waters to see what else amasses mass appeal like that basketball classic.
[ SNEAKERS ADDICT ] Let’s be clear, even if the Nike Huarache Free release of this year was a great success, many are hoping the release of retros faithful to the OG model from 1990.
[ SNEAKERNEWS ] A recent ‘list’ pointing out the ten ‘rules’ of sneakerheadism suggested we throw out our shoeboxes.
[ SNEAKERS ADDICT ] 2013 will see the return of a few key models of the 90s, such as the Nike Air Base II expected by many sneaker heads as never been reissued. In addition to the original color, more colorways will come, including this one that we are pleased to unveil.
[ SNEAKERNEWS ] The Nike Air Max 90 ‘Infrared’ is one of those sneakers that’s going to sell out pretty much every time it comes back around, Nike Sportswear having brought it back with a pretty true to OG look a good number of times in the last decade.
[ HYPEBEAST ] Presented in a dark obsidian/neutral grey colorway, we get a preliminary preview of the forthcoming Nike Air Max 1 OG VNTG.
[ CROOKED TONGUES ] Sequels and shoes are a tricky one. The Nike Air Max dynasty is a good example of an ongoing line that works (even though between 2003 and 2006 there wasn't too much memorable activity) and adidas did quiet tweaks to bestsellers to make them Super.
[ GQ.COM ] Laguna Beach, CA and Beaverton, OR are about to meet face to face (yet again) in one of the years most 'Oh Shit' worthy collaborations.
