Photos of these have circulated around blogs and IG for a few months now but finally a release is imminent. Errolson Hugh took to IG today to announce the launch through the ACRNM website which has already sold out. The shoe takes on the familiar Air Force One high and adds a compression strap and a zipper upper sleeve that covers parts of the shoe. The craftsmanship on these looks excellent but clock do cost a fair bit more than a normal Air Force One coming in at 250EUR.  If previous releases are any indication expect these to pop up exclusively online through Nike Lab and wholesale accounts.

Nike and Errolson Hugh have been busy this year, between the release of the Prestos and now this latest batch of ACG goods.

The ACG Lupinek first made an appearance last winter in the form of a snowboot. The design has been tweaked and now will be releasing as a low-cut sneaker. Distinctive elements of the original design made thier way over in the translation: the VAC-TECH mud guard, Phylon midsole and a perforated tongue really help this sneaker stand out. Available in two stylish flyknit treatments – dark grey and grey/white, look for the Lupinek to release online and at select Nike Lab outlets. The only downside of the shoe is it’s hefty $275USD pricepoint.

ACRONYM and Nike Lab are set to release one of the most polarizing sneakers of the year. This is quite an extreme makeover on the iconic Air Force 1 shiloutte. If it looks like a zipper was haphazardly placed onto a regular Lunar Force body, it’s because that was the intention. In a recent interview with 032c, ACRONYM designer Errolson Hugh admitted that once the decision was made to add a functional zip to the sneaker, they were unapologetic about the changes.

There’s nothing subtle about it.  You can immediately see the original design and the new parts that are stuck on. It’s an intervention It’s very unapologetic, and I think it was pretty ballsy of Nike to let us do it.

The sneakers themselves will come in three colorways, a simple black suede/leather iteration. A mainly white model with a a dipped infared-colored heel panel and a pretty crazy multi-color sneaker. The sneakers retail for $200 USD and will be dropping this Thursday, September 17 at online at Nike Lab, Oki-Ni, END Clothing and other retailers.  Click through to see close up photos of the sneakers and also a short conceptual video highlighting the collab that focuses on surveillance.

Nike has become very strong at creating new technology and infusing it into their classic models. In recent years, techniques such as flyknit and hyperfuse have found their way onto countless Nike models. For the Holdiay 2015 season, Nike is finessing the ever-popular Air Max 90 and Air Huarache. Air max heads will note the changes to the midsole and the new traction outsole of theses sneaker. I selected to feature out my favorite colorways from the pack, but more are available to browse and pre-order over at Atmos.  If you liked the stripped down modern look of the ‘patch’ series of Air Maxes, these are a good follow-up. Look for these to drop in late September at select NSW accounts.

Fresh off the heels of the re-launch of Nike ACG, Acronym designer Errolson Hugh has once again teamed up with Nike on a new take on the Lunar Force 1. The literal centerpiece of the sneaker is a metal zip that extends up the upper. The sneaker features premium suede along with a patent leather heel. My favorite detail is the branded perforated leather tongue that sits atop the design.

Earlier photos also showed a white colorway of the sneaker but time will tell if those will be released alongside these black/white joints.  Look for these to hit Nike Lab locations and select Tier 0 accounts like END Clothing, Hanon and Oki-Ni in mid-June.
