The Nike Vandal is an under appreciated classic hi-top model. The sneaker has attracted the attention of Raf Simons in the past, with the designer putting out his own take on the style in the past. Great to see that Nike is bringing some classic color ways of the sneaker including a Black/Metallic Gold version and a shoe that features University Red/Metallic Silver . Even better the shoe brings back the classic nylon upper and pairs it with a simple white midsole unit.  Expect these to hit store shelves on August 8 at select Nike Sportswear retailers including Nordstroms at a retail of $99USD.

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.

The bulky designer sneaker thing is literally everywhere this season and of course Gucci isn’t missing out on the trend. Gucci is experiencing huge growth for many reasons, it’s a favorite amongst the Hollywood/celebrity elite and their designs are distinctively gaudy in a way that stands out in today’s market. Their entrance into the sneaker category this season however is carefully balanced between luxury branding and minimal design. These leather low tops are featured a Logo flag at padded tongue and a padded collar for comfort. The Gucci Logo stamp is delivered in glittered gold-tone and the usual stripes in red and green printed at outer side. These will set you back  a pretty penny but for the ballers out there, the stunt factor alone may be worth it.

The Nike Air Max 180 is a classic model that hasn’t gotten much attention in recent years. That’s about to change now with this COMME des GARCONS HOMME version which first appeared at last season’s Paris Fashion week. Official images of the sneaker have not been released and they are heavy on the pink. While not to everyone’s taste these will fit in with well with any full Comme fit. In total there are three variations on the sneaker.

Nike made a splash with the return of the Air Max 98 in 2016. The release of OG color ways as well as three colors for the collab they did with Supreme showed that there was a market out there for faithful recreations of the shoe. Now in 2018, Nike is releasing two great colors in celebration of the shoe’s 20th anniversary. First off is the tour yellow version pictured above and a bright blue/red released nicknamed “Gundam” which you can see after the jump. These look like they’ve kept true to the originals in terms of materials and should appeal to the segment of their consumer base who prefers faithful recreations to new iterations on the style using modern tech. I’m all for the 98 coming back and it’s looking like this year will net even more versions of the sneaker later in the year. Look for both these sneakers to drop at Nike retailers after Jan 17.
