Nike Basketball: Bring Your Game

Nike Basketball: Bring Your Game

A group of kids travel the world to hang out with Kevin Durant, Paul George, Elena Delle Donne, Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis, Kobe Bryant and LeBron James. The lesson: We should all pack our bags and live with KD.

Nike Internationalist LX

Buy

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.

Nike Class of ’97 Pack

A variant of the Air Jordan XIII, the Horizon’s one-piece woven upper features an asymmetrical graphic print. It also has a lightweight Phylon midsole. Part of the Public School and Jordan collection.

Nike Kobe XI

Nike Kobe XI

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.

Nike Free Trainer 1.0

Buy

The Nike Free Trainer 1.0 provides a barefoot feeling without the discomfort, thanks to the thin and flexible rubber outsole, EVA sockliner and Flywire cables. The extra high midsole will protect your feet from scuffs.

Nike: Snow Day

Nike: Snow Day

The snow is coming down, school is closed, so it’s time to play. Nike managed to assemble a veritable who’s who of pro athletes to frolic in the white stuff. Want to know something even cooler? It was all shot on a soundstage.

Nike Air Huarache Utility

Nike Air Huarache Utility
Buy

NIke’s Huaraches usually have flimsy uppers to keep them light and form fitting. Not the new Huarache Utility, which has a thick nylon upper and a fused mudguard while retaining the sock-like fit. The Premium version has a glow-in-the-dark mudguard.

Self-Lacing Nike MAG

Self-Lacing Nike MAG

Another self-fulfilling prophecy has come true. Nike created self-lacing Nike Air MAGs, with the first pair given to Michael J. Fox. However, just like the 2011 release the shoes will be limited and will be auctioned off in spring 2016 to benefit Michael’s Parkinson’s Foundation.

NikeLab Bruin Leather

NikeLab Bruin Leather

The first Nike basketball shoe returns. This NikeLab release substitutes the Bruin’s suede upper with a full grain leather upper, but keeps the tongue and heel logo-free. And yes, Marty McFly wore these too, so they’ll drop 10/21, along with another BTTF shoe.

Nike Air Max 1 Essential Blk/Red

Nike Air Max 1 Essential Blk/Red
Buy

We tried our best, but we couldn’t make Nike iD recreate these Air Max 1 Essentials with the OG Jordans’ colors on them, particularly its gum sole and the red logo on the tongue. So grab these ASAP. It’s in womens’ sizes though.

Nike Holiday 2015 Sneakerboots

Nike Holiday 2015 Sneakerboots

We’ve already seen the Lunar Force 1 Duckboot (and in an alternate colorway, no less). The other new men’s Sneakerboots are the Flyknit Trainer Chukka Sneakerboot, the Air Max 95 Sneakerboot and the Air Max 90 Sneakerboot. Drops 11/5.

Buy

Nike’s latest footwear will keep you unfazed when challenged by the elements on the golf course. Weatherproof uppers offer great stability; Lunarlon cushioning offers sweatpant comfort. Unzip the tops when the rain stops for ventilation and the too-cool hidden camo lining.

Nike Air Force 1 Iridescent

Nike Air Force 1 Iridescent
Buy

If Daft Punk wore Nikes, they’d be these very special Air Force 1s, wrapped in a shiny and high tech iridescent material, with a quilted swoosh, and a blended gradient that spreads onto the midsole. Customize yours over at NikeiD starting on 10/14.

NikeLab Payaa

NikeLab Payaa
Buy

Nike says the Payaa was inspired by native Alaskan snow boots, but the shoe looks more like a Nike Air Zoom with the new Hyperdunk’s midsole-outsole combo. A great alternative to the absurdly priced Yeezy Boost 350.

Nike: Last

Nike: Last

Nike does a brilliant job capturing what it’s like bringing up the rear in a foot race, and the feeling of personal accomplishment that results by pushing yourself to the end, even if you’re not among the fastest.

Nike LeBron 13

Nike LeBron 13

LeBron James’ latest signature shoe has a lightweight and breathable Hyperposite and mesh upper with integrated laces and six Zoom Air units for cushioning and explosiveness. The first colorway drops 10/10, but it’ll be on Nike iD starting 9/30.

Nike Lunar Force 1 Duckboot

Nike Lunar Force 1 Duckboot

Nike gives more teeth to the Lunar Force 1 Sneakerboot. This duckboot variant has rubber spikes on its toecap, Water-shield protection on its upper, an insulated lining and a Lunarlon midsole.

Nike Air Mowabb OG Trail End Brown

Nike Air Mowabb OG Trail End Brown
Buy

The Huarache-lite Air Mowabb OG is back once again. But if you don’t mess with rattan, or whatever Nike calls beige these days, this colorway formerly known as Prince’s might be up your alley.

Come Clean Sneaker Soaps

Come Clean Sneaker Soaps
Buy

Etsy seller Yvonne Kai sells plant-based glycerin soaps with tiny vinyl or silicone sneaker replicas inside. Most of the current stock have Jordans, but there are a few soaps with Adidas and other Nike shoes as well.

Nike Flyease

Inspired by a young Nike fan with cerebral palsy, the Flyease is a wrap-around zipper around the heel that lets you wear shoes using one hand. The first model with Flyease, the LeBron 8 Soldier Flyease, drops 7/16/15 on Nike.com.
