Nike is always up to something, and this one is just another notch on the belt. Their “Home Turf” series debuted last month, and this is just one pair of many in the collection. Alot of these would look great with our new Rich Kids Brand Spring 2013 Collection. Freshness Mag has more information about the Home Turf series:
The term “lifestyle trainers” sounded like an oxymoron to many European at the time. Yet, Nike forged ahead in 1987 and brought the very first Air Max onto the shores of the Old World. While at first deemed by locals as an impossible feat, a following quickly grew in cities like London, Milan, and Paris. A decade after, the Nike Air Max and all of its variations enmeshed themselves onto local subcultures, much like how Air Force 1 became part of streetballers’ ensembles here in the U.S.
To highlight the symbiotic relationship between the three cities and the Nike Air Max family, Nike Sportswear created the “Home Turf” Collection. A total of 12 designs, with each pack of four linking to each city. For London, it is the contrast between modernity and traditions with Nike Air Max 1 Hyperfuse, the Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse, the Nike Air Max 1 2013 and the Nike Air Max 95. For the city of Milan, it is able the luxe life and premium craftsmanship with Air Max 97 2013, the Air Max 1, Air Max 97 and Air Max 90. Finally, for Paris, the City of Light, it is about timeless classics and the familiar naval-inspired stripes with Air Max Classic BW, Air Max 90, Air Max 2013 and Air Max 1 Hyperfuse.
The European love affair will start this Friday February 15th, with limited availability at select Nike Sportswear retailers. A general release will take place next month on March 27th.
Nike is said to release the Air Jordan 1 OG colorway in the spring of 2013. The shoe originally came out back in 1984-1985, before some of you were born, as the first shoe of the Air Jordan line, designed by Tinker Hatfield. Micheal Jordan received $5,000 fines per game for wearing the shoe and not following the teams uniform rule. I’m sure the release of this shoe will cause more havoc than any other Jordan released since it has been decades since we first saw this shoe.
For those of you anticipating the release of the Air Jordan XI “Concords” they will be available tonight at midnight. In order to cop these just log onto Crooked Tongues and they will have you covered. A very highly anticipated pair.
Interested in getting a pair? Well these new Nikes are available to all now here.
Damn just saw these kicks posted up on Hype Beast and knew I had to get a pair. The new Air Max lights feature a blue, green, grey, and black colorway which is pretty unique. Look for these at Nike retailers near you. A great Summer sneaker if you ask me.
Nike is at it again with another drop of Air Max’s for you sneakerfreakers out there. The one’s that are almost identical to the neon’s from 5 years ago are in my bullseye for sure!
