Nike has brought out a new retro-themed ACG line to compliment their tech wear oriented designs. The pieces are a fun, colorful addition to Nike’s offerings for the season bringing neon colors and trail running inspired designs from Nike’s ACG archive back to the forefront. The Shell shorts are a good example of the new design ethos set out by the ACG sub-line. Priced at $65, these shorts are available at Mr Porter and Nike.

Nike has really invested in their tech-friendly running offerings with the Zoom Fly and Epic React models. The latest shoe in the same vein is the new EXP-X14, a futuristic-looking sneaker that was first unveiled last week.

Nodding to Nike’s rich running heritage while still pushing the envelope of technology, the EXP-X14’s translucent upper is an upgrade from the retro Nike Zoom Drive, a running silhouette from the mid 90s. The midsole boasts an exposed yellow TPU plate and a slim heel design that nod to the ultra-fast Zoom Vaporfly 4%. Even the shoe’s name is packed full of Nike lore, as “EXP” is short for experiment, and X14 is the original internal Nike code name for React cushioning technology, which appears in the shoe’s midsole. Other details on the sneaker include a medial side screen print that represent the legendary Steve Prefontaine’s fastest time in the mile—3 minutes and 54.6 seconds. The shoe also visibly includes  bold Flywire cables and a unique high heel design.

The shoe is set to release in three colorways (blue/volt, rose gold/gold and black/red) all with bright and bold accents on June 28th in Europe via the SNKRS app before rolling out to North America and Greater China July 5th via SNKRS and Nike. Enjoy a set of images for the futuristic shoes below, and let us know what you think of the continued modern-day fusion of lifestyle and performance silhouettes.

Everyone lost it when they first saw the Undercover Nike React Element 87. With a slim profile and deconstructed aesthetic, the React Element 87 was a bit reminiscent of the transparent nature of the Zoom Fly SP. But with Jun Takahashi’s guidance we received some excellent color ways of this sneaker. While the original word was that Nike was going to release  five color ways of the sneakers, it appears now that Nike has pivoted away from that and are now releasing 2 of the pairs as a general release. The silhouette will release on its own in this sail/red version as well as a simple black/white iteration. Instagram user gc911 has posted a series of detailed shots of anticipated release.

Click through for more information and images of  the release. Select Nike retailers will be releasing this sneaker on June 14 for $170USD.

Undercover is bringing out four new color ways of a new sneaker model called the Element 87.

The react running sole is combined with a translucent t shell upper, exterior taping on the heel, an exposed lace collar, and trail-running style laces. All five color ways of the sneaker are expected to drop in Fall 2018, see all of them after the jump.

The Nike Air Max 180 is a classic model that hasn’t gotten much attention in recent years.
