NikeLab Air Force 1 Low

01

Image

01. Premium leather upper and liner.

Words

I'd be curious to know how many versions of the Air Force 1 have been released by Nike since 1982. Over the years, the brand has attempted many times to elevate the icon with premium materials while maintaining its original aesthetic, and more often than not it hasn't been a total success. The recent NikeLab release, however, is very, very good. There are low and mid options in white, black, navy and red, all featuring deluxe uppers and Phylon cushioning. The only detail I might reconsider is the clear sole but as it's out of sight, it's easy to overlook.

NikeLab Roshe Daybreak x Fragment

01

Image

01. Lightweight nylon and synthetic upper.

Words

I was never really a fan of Nike's Roshe Run model, which has taken over the streets in the past few years, but the recent Roshe LD-1000 and now the Roshe Daybreak have upped the ante. This classic colourway, produced in collaboration with Fragment Design, is tough to fault, while the waffle-inspired outsole, full-length Phylon midsole, and Ortholite sock liner combine for an extremely comfortable ride.

NikeLab – Innovation x Innovators: All Conditions Gear

01

Video

01. Adapt. Move. Protect.

Words

The latest NikeLab ACG collection is released today, and this short film takes us behind the scenes with Jarrett Reynolds and Errolson Hugh as they highlight the principles behind the line, the challenges they've faced along the way, and the importance of achieving a balance between functionality and aesthetics. It's one of Nike's most interesting projects, with considerable depth and quality at its core.

Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 32

01

Image

01. Triple Black.

Words

The Air Zoom Pegasus 31 is one of my favourite releases from Nike Running in recent times, and I've used it regularly, alongside the Flyknit Racer, during the accumulation of kilometres this year. In light of that, I was excited to see the latest edition of the storied model: an appealing update, released in a handful of strong colour options.

Nike Air Max 95 Triple Black

01

Image

01. Visible heel and forefoot cushioning.

Words

There are no shortage of desirable trainers hitting the market these days, especially from Nike. The brand's recent Air Max 95 push is a welcome one, as long as they keep producing colourways like this. Featuring a mix of Black and Anthracite materials to create subtly contrasting textures, the 20-year-old design continues to feel quite modern.

Nike Air Presto Lightning QS

01

Image

01. Quick strike release.

Words

The Nike Air Presto is an interesting shoe that comes from one of my favourite eras in the brand's history. The performance benefits it had in 2000 might be a little outdated, but it's still a style I'm particularly fond of, and the sock-like fit makes it an appealing casual option. I'm not usually one for wild patterns or prints on footwear, but for some reason the lightning motif just works on the Presto.

Nike Air Force 1 Hi Retro QS

01

Image

01. Summit White/Wolf Grey.

Words

It's hard for this shoe to not immediately evoke memories of Just for Kicks, and the tales told by Grandmaster Caz and Bonz Malone. Storied history aside, it's a great sneaker with a timeless design, not often available in the Hi version, especially in such a classic colourway.

Nike Cortez

01

Image

01. Suede and nylon.

Words

The Nike Cortez is a shoe that I've never had particularly strong feelings about. It's so tied to West Coast hip hop, and I've always associated more with the East – aesthetically and sonically rather than geographically. However, these simple reissues are about as good a version of the shoe as you could hope for, and seeing them recently had me thinking about embracing my own coast.
