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.

It’s hard to believe that Nike Lab and Jun Takahashi of Undercover have been collaborating on their line of running apparel Gyakusou for over six years. Through the process, the collection has continually evolved drawing from both Nike technology and Jun Takahashi’s punk sensibilities. While I felt the last few seasons have been lackluster, Gyaksou returns in fine form this year. The line features an fantastic color palette for fall and even sees a return of the infamous UC Giz print. The above video gives insight into the design process and great cropped views of the gear in motion.

Included are new items including a water-resistant LunarEpic Flyknit trainer, Aeroloft down jackets with removable sleeves.  Launching November 10th online and at select NikeLab stockists online such as END and Dover St Market.

The collection is now available at Nike Lab.

I’m a huge fan of tan suede sneakers so it was no surprise that I liked these Air Unlimiteds as soon as I saw them. The high-top basketball sneaker has been reconfigured as a clean tonal colorway. Minimal branding is present on this pair and the best part may be the cream colored midsole. These will go fast so get these over at Nike Lab for $180.

For my entire life, Nike has been number one when it comes to sneakers. In the hearts and minds of sneaker enthusiasts, among streetwear circles and in terms of pure sales , there was no substitute for Nike. Recently Adidas has made in-roads on Nike’s dominance in the sportswear market. In the fiscal second quarter Adidas sales jumped 23% from a year ago. Beyond just the numbers there’s a real feeling that Nike is falling off in it’s product offerings while Adidas is gaining momentum with successive releases. Since the release of the first Yeezy 750 sneaker in February 2015, Adidas has gained massive popularity with it’s Adidas Originals line, in particular with Ultra Boosts and NMDs. It’s clear that Adidas has made plenty of great design and marketing designs in the past two years. However part of their growth has also come through Nike’s failure to adapt to current market demands. Being at the top for too long can naturally cause some level of complacency, I will break down some of what the areas where Nike is falling behind below.

The Presto was a incremental step forward in Nike design and 2016 saw it’s return in the form of countless retros. The team at ACRONYM got their hands on the Nike Presto Mid and made it something altogether different. The collection of three colorways of Presto mids is set to release this week after a limited Berlin release and selling out on ACRNM’s webstop. Each model features a functional medial zipper and heel pull tab  with a snap detail. The three colorways include a tonal bamboo/black model, a olive/black version and a eye-popping volt/lava version.

The hype on these is very real so you’ll want to keep posted on the Nike Lab website and other stockists for release info.

UPDATE – The confirmed release day is September 15. Confirmed retailers that will carry these online include END, Haven, Tres Bien, BAIT, Kith, Back Door Bottega, Slam Jam Socialism, Sneakersnstuff, Shoe Gallery, Wellgosh and BDGA.

The Nike Zoom Air Spiridon is a source of  great nostalgia for sneaker fans. The original colorways of the sneaker were iconic and have finally been retroed this year more than a decade after their original 1997 release. If the OG colors are a bit too garish for your current style, this clean white and wolf grey pair is a nice alternative.

Available now at KITH and Nike.

The Nike Sock Dart needs little introduction at this point. The laceless lightweight model has become one of their most popular summer running shoes and Nike has been steadily releasing colorways of it. The latest is a triple black treatment that’s available now at Nike SNKRS for $130.

In more sneaker news, Nike put out a new take on the Mercurial model, this time using white flyknit and combining it with the famous Spiridon sole. OG Spiridon themselves are being brought back soon as a retro but these have a decidedly sci-fi feel with the all white color-way. Might be a little difficult to keep these clean for long given the colorway, but you can scoop em now for $200 at Nike.

The release of the ACRONYM x Nike Lunar Forces last year showed that designer Errolson Hugh was not afraid to make drastic design changes to a flagship Nike model.  Photos have now surfaced online of what appears to be the next shoe collaboration between the techwear innovator and Nike.

Two sample color ways have emerged both featuring a mid height design with a zippered inner bootie  and some new protective layering around the toe. One appears to be navy with cream accents and the other is a wild pink and volt combo. Time will tell if other variations might also be released.

Expect a release later this summer through Nike Lab outlets.
