Nike and Undefeated’s Speed Destroyed collection celebrates the 50th Super Bowl with black and gold shoes and apparel, including an imposing varsity jacket with 50 stars at the back, an Air Trainer 1 and an Ultra XT.
Classic basketball shoes look nice, but let’s face it, they’re clunky and heavy. Nike solves that problem by updating the Air Force 1 with a fully knit one-piece upper and a foam-injected midsole. The result is a shoe that’s 50% lighter than the original.
The Metcon 2 is as light, grippy and stable as the original, but it has an extra cushioning on the heel area for a more snug and comfortable fit. Larger abrasive-resistant patches and a heel bumper enhance its durability.
The 2016 Black History Month collection adds bright colors and geometric patterns to various Nike apparel and shoes. The lineup includes new basketball shoes such as the LeBron XIII and Kyrie 2 and street shoes like the Roshe One and AJ 1 Retro.
Asics keeps up with the season with this retro take on the Gel-Kayano, trading the mesh panels on the upper for nylon and adding Gore-Tex insulation to keep your feet warm. The suede ruins the weatherproofing though. Available in all burgundy or all navy blue.
His Airness’ 30th signature shoe has a woven upper, a knit asymmetrical collar, the segmented outsole based on the Air Jordan XX9 and a triple X basketball net logo on the heel. Drops 2/12/16.
Nike dresses up its timeless sneaker using its cutting edge machine knitting technology. The Air Force 1 Flyknit will have a nearly seamless knit upper and Flywire for support. Available in multicolor or all white.
It definitely dropped in the wrong season, but that doesn’t make this edition of Nike’s 80s running shoe any less dope. The Internationalist LX trades the nylon and mesh panels for a full suede upper, with matching waxed laces and black midsole and outsole.
A throwback two-pack that includes an Air Foamposite Pro and a Zoom Hawk Flight, two of the shoes worn by Ray Allen’s character Jesus Shuttlesworth in Spike Lee’s ’98 basketball film He Got Game.
Kobe Bryant’s bold and dynamic signature shoe celebrates his final season in the NBA. The Kobe XI has a Flyknit upper that incorporates TPU yarn to add strength, and a full length Lunarlon foam and a mesh tongue for comfort. Drops 1/9/16 for $200.
The NikeLab ACG Lupinek Flyknit FSB has an upper made of waterproof leather and water-resistant Flyknit, offering a balance between comfort and protection. It also has a memory foam collar and a ridged outsole inspired by Nike Free shoes.
Converse turned Woolrich’s classic blanket fabric and patterns into uppers for these awesome Chuck Taylor All Star high top, low top, street hiker and high rise shoes. The high and low Chucks are customizable.
Ensconced in pebbled leather and rich suede with metallic flash like a shiny espresso machine, the legendary Brooks Chariot is now a sweet everyday kick, inspired by the aromas and ambience of your favorite local coffee houses (and with a cool sock liner to match).
