Any associations you might have with Nike eyewear might be subverted by these sporty lenses. The Nike Windshield Elite sunglasses are an ultra-lightweight option that you can wear outdoors while working out but honestly they look incredible paired with any number of sportswear/streetwear fits. I really like this orange and white colorway, but there’s some other fun options as well. The Nike Low Light Tint brightens shadows and enhances ambient light at night so they also do have a functional aspect. Available at Nike Vision and other eyewear outlets.
The simple beige colorway dubbed ‘Acorn’ has finally made a return. A grail for my OG Nike AF1 collectors, it still looks as good as ever. The low AF1 features a canvas and buffed leather upper. The sneaker also features a padded collar and a grained leather Swoosh appliqué at sides.

Undefeated is returning in 2021 with another big Nike collab, once again choosing the Air Max 97 as their sneaker of choice. This sneaker “Sail,” has not yet been seen outside of the mock-up pictured below but there are two revealed colorways to date. This blue, yellow and sail colorway which gives off a heavy UCLA vibe but there are also two other colorways which are reviewed below. There’s a tonal low-key khaki green variation as well as a volt green and black variant.
Nike has stated that the white Undefeated x Nike Air Max 97 will release on Jan. 8 for $180 on the SNKRS app.
Nike hasn’t shown the Air max 97 a lot of love in 2020 but this subtle variation on the model is on the way later this year. The “light bone” colorway takes away some of the flashiness we tend to associate with the Air Max 97 with a muted pale upper that contrasts with an all black sole and midsole. The simple two tone style just works and will be releasing later this year at select Nike stockists.
Zoom Air has become Nike’s premier cushioning system in their cutting edge running program and they’ve taken that technology to present an eye catching design in the form of the Nike Zoom Double Stacked. In particular this ‘barely volt’ color way of the shoe hides some of the swoosh branding and juxtaposes it against the striking wedge-like double sole. There’s Zoom cushioning in the sole and the breathable mesh makes this a comfortable summer choice. Look for these to drop on July 2 through select Nike outlets.
