Nike raided it’s ACG archive to introduce a new trail sneaker. The super clean sneaker most notably features a thick jagged rubber outsole. Other features include the likes of a slip-on bootie and unique lacing system. Available at NSW stockists these are expected to drop this summer. Here’s hoping more color ways past the black and white models shown are on the way.
Nike made a splash with the return of the classic silver bullet and gold variations of the Air Max 97. Next up is this all white color way titled ‘Summit White”. Several different textures populate the upper and it includes the 3M piping around the shoe. Look for these later this year as Nike continues to revive the Air Max 97.
Famed designer and Tom Sachs and Nike teamed up on a special project in 2012. The two linked up to create a shoe called the NikeCraft Mars yard for Tommaso Rivellini, a mechanical engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The original shoes were a huge hit amongst sneaker collectors but were almost nearly impossible to track down for the public at large.
The shoe now sees an official return now titled the Mars Yard 2.0. The design makes some tweaks to the original upgrading the mesh on the sneaker.
Stay tuned for more concrete release info and expect the collab to launch next week for $200 USD at nikecraft.com as Sachs and the Swoosh gear up for “Space Camp” — an installation billed as “part obstacle course and part film screening” that stresses “the importance of failure in art and athletics.
Nike has been innovating bringing out a ton of new models and collabs this year. This time the experimental NikeLab branch release the Zoom Fly Special Edition which is a homage to runner Eliud Kipchoge set a new world marathon record on the Formula 1 track at Monza. This served as the inspiration for the designer with various aspects of the shoe reflecting this breakthrough. Some of the key details include sketches on the sicklier, a digital cock graphic on the heel and a speed track icon on the inside of the tongue.
Intended to a fast and durable training shoe it includes an embedded full-length carbon-infused nylon plate, a 10mm offset, and a 3mm stack height. But most important these just look amazing in pics,the Zoom Fly SP is set to launch on June 8 at select NikeLab dealers.

Nike ACG is set to release it’s Spring/Summer 2017 range tomorrow. I previously covered the 07 CMTR sneaker on this site, but now we get a better look at what else is in the range. Particularly of note is the packable ACG Poncho that comes in ripstop. Equipped with a hidden inner pocket, the is one of the more eye-catching items to drop. Another key piece are the ACG cargos. While past seasons saw cargos released, these are notable for their 6 pocket set-up and breathable side vents. To round out the collection there’s also a series of fleece items as well as a rain resistant button-down.
The collection releases this Thursday over at END.
Nike ACG (All-Conditions Gear) is back with a new sneaker – the 07 CMTR. The one-piece upper is made up of ripstop nylon and is adorned by bungee cords and fastening straps. Releasing soon in two color ways “Triple Black” and Navy/Black-Sail, Nike is set to offer up another tech wear friendly footwear option.
The team at Guerrilla Group has helped style the clothing in a new video from Nike. Director Yuen Hsieh partnered with famous singer and fashion icon Chris Lee in this stylized hi-tech visual. Taking inspiration from sci-fi and the idea of time travel, the short clip juxtaposes her character’s own life journey with 30 years of evolution in sneakers starting from the Air Max 1 to the new Nike Vapormax.
Nike and Undercover continue their ongoing collaboration with a fresh season of Gyakusou. The spring edition brings bright pops of colors and a return of some classic prints from years past. As usual the technical aspect of the clothing utilizes Nike technologies like Dri-FIT and AeroReact. The sneaker this time around is the LunarEpic Low Flyknit 2. The best pieces from the collection are the striped track jackets that utilize the leaf camo.
The collection should be available on the Nike Lab website later this month but you can preview all the items on the site now.

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. In what might be the best collection to date, there are several key pieces that really take from the ACRONYM DNA and make it a bit more accessible and sports-oriented. Among them are the Alpine Jacket and the cargo pants which come in new DWR water-resistant fabric. You can shop the collection now online and at END.
