Stay bright with the Nike ‘Flash’ Collection

If you’re anything like us, you prefer to head outdoors and pound the pavement rather than the treadmill when exercising. But when the weather is working against you, it’s a tough task to muster up the motivation. With this thought, Nike have sought to keep runners protected against the elements with its new ‘Flash’ pack.

The Nike "Flash" Pack

The Nike ‘Flash’ Pack

The Flash footwear collection consists of 6 different styles that feature water-resistant properties, vibrant reflectivity and breathable, lightweight warmth. The pack also includes apparel to match with each piece engineered to keep athletes dry and comfortable. It does this by moving sweat away from the skin while still being highly visible in low light minus the construction-worker feel.

The hero of the pack is the Allover Flash jacket, which features a glass-beaded exterior that produces 360 degrees of 400-candlepower reflectivity for enhanced visibility. The only down side is that it’s going to cost you $500 big boys, and you’ll have to be quick, because it comes in limited quantities that won’t be around for long.

Nike Air Pegasus 83/30

Nike Sportswear marks the 30th anniversary of the Air Pegasus with the ‘Pegasus 83/30’.

The original Air Pegasus is one of Nike’s oldest running shoes; made popular years ago with its subtle style and extreme comfort. The 30th anniversary edition marries the original runner look with modern materials and construction, and features a breathable ‘Hyperfuse’ mesh upper, leather heel, and updated sole.

There are several colourways set to hit stores soon with some early releases having already sold out! But if you’re quick, you can get your pre-order in now at Titolo.

Air Jordan VI “Infrared” to make a return in 2014

Exciting news has come across the desk this evening — the confirmation of the Air Jordan VI’s (white/infrared colourway) return in 2014.

Air Jordan VI - White Infrared

Originally released during the NBA 1990-1991 season, the shoe played an integral role in the Chicago Bulls’, and Michael Jordan’s, first NBA title. Jordan also took home the NBA Scoring Title for that year, and the second of his five MVP awards.

The Air Jordan VI model is another classic for architect and designer Tinker Hatfield. It features a rubber tongue with two holes that allows the wearer to pull the shoes on with ease. The shoes revisit the Air Jordan V’s clear sole and lace lock design with a more streamline and form-fitting look.

Despite no confirmation yet, sources suggest this will be a 23rd Anniversary release, which has led to speculation as to whether or not the AJ VI will feature the original Nike Air logo on its heel instead of the new Jumpman logo.

2014 is set the be the year of the VI for Jordan Brand with this release in the first weeks of February. Get excited. We are!

Nike Air Huarache OG

Nike Air Huarache OG

After 22 years, the Nike Air Huarache is back! The iconic runner is set to return in two original colourways: white/sport turquoise/university gold, and white/game royal/dynamic pink; being released in very limited runs this Friday February 22.

It’s no surprise to see many of our favourite sneakers from the 80s and 90s remade and marketed as retro re-releases these days. The Nike Air Huarache however, is one style that hasn’t seen a comeback in its original colourway since its debut back in 91.

Brought to life by legendary designer and architect, Tinker Hatfield, the Huarache is inspired by Native American sandals. Its design centres on the interior bootie that’s made from neoprene and spandex to hug the foot similar to that of a sock. It provides superior comfort while being supported by thermoplastic heel counter and strap.

While we’re super pumped to see one of our favourite shoes return, we’re pretty unhappy that Nike has failed to keep the overall shape of the shoe on par with the original. Early pairs show an oversized and rounded toebox, and chunky finish to the shoe. Is this going to stop anyone from trying to get a pair? Probably not.

You’ll be able to find them at Size? and Solebox.

Wear your sneakers… new Air Jordans to come

With countless sneaker fans around the world customising their own footwear designs and colourways with programs such as Photoshop, it’s baffling as to why the Jordan brand keeps releasing old colour combinations and styles.

In its ‘golden’ days, when the sneaker community was smaller and less established, you would have had to partake in hours of research if you wanted to find a pair of limited-run sneakers or vintage styles. It wasn’t uncommon to bid competitively on forums, or camp out through the night in front of retail stores before releases to get what you wanted. When you saw someone wearing a pair of Air Jordans in an original colourway, you knew that collector was serious, today it seems even the most dedicated fan base has been watered down with commercial cool. 

No shoe enthusiast wants to believe that Jordan brand seems intent on flooding the shoe market with ‘re-retros’ and even ‘re-re-retros’ to stash more money in the bank, despite their claims of respect for the so-called ‘sneaker game’, but it’s become harder and harder to ignore.

One such example is the release of the 2013 version of the Air Jordan 5 ‘Grape’. After hunting for a decent unworn pair for years, I finally picked up a set of the first ‘retro’d’ editions in 2006, and haven’t worn them since. It’s a similar story for the Jordan 8 ‘Aqua’, which will be back in 2013, and the same goes for the Air Jordan 3 ‘True Blue’ edition, which was one of my most sought after and favourite shoes, and one which I have now lost count on how many times it’s hit shelves.

Jordan Brand seems to have a 5-6 year rule before releasing another retro design with less quality than the original. So if you’ve been holding onto old Jordans like I have, it’s probably best you start wearing them now, because soon you’ll be flooded with new versions of these classics.
