‘Bo Knows’ – Air Trainer Max ’91

28 May


I’m not a big fan of American football, but these would look mighty fine in my collection. Nike has been making a range of NFL licensed footwear since last season’s partnership. Now they’ve come out with a fresh new version of the Nike Air Trainer Max ’91, but this time it’s inspired by Former Raiders running back, Bo jackson. Who had a short, but impressive football career.

Therefor Nike used the signature black and silver, which characterizes the Oakland Raiders. On the right heel Jackson’s jersey #34 is embroidered and on the left heel you will find the Raiders logo. The strap on the front features the slogan from Nike’s early 90’s campaign , ‘Bo Knows’. And I know these are available as we speak at select Nike dealers.



Exclusive Flyknits

11 Apr


This week Nike will be releasing two limited editions of the Flyknit series and to be honest they look pretty fly. The models that are being released are the Flyknit Racer and the HTM Flyknit Trainer+, the latter being part of a collection that shows some of Nike’s most innovative designs. In looks I would prefer the Racer because of the fresher color pattern of the upper, but since I’m not in fact a racer I’ll exclude myself from the competition.

Unlike Nike’s other Flyknit models, these two are made of multi-colored yarn, which definitely  gives a limited feel to them. The pairs will only be available at Nike Stadium Milano from the 12th of April and at 1948 London from the 13th. Happy hunting.



Easter sneakers !

21 Mar


Easter brings us not just bunnies and eggs, but apparently also fresh pairs of sneakers. Witness the pairs Nike is dropping for this jolly holiday. First off the ‘SB Koston QS Easter’, a noticeable shoe mainly because of it’s suede pink pastel upper, which makes it very springy summery footwear. I’ve found the SB line from Nike to be very comfortable and I expect that these will be consistent in that matter. These unfortunately very limited sneakers are not available anywhere near you, unless you live in NYC.

Next is the ‘Air Max Light Easter’, which is brought to you by Nike and Size?, a retailer  based in the UK. Both pairs from the Easter pack have uppers of grey suede and white mesh and where one pair is complemented by dark and light blue accents the other is by dark and light purple. The blue pair comes of a little fresher and lighter, but that could just be the pictures. They will be available online and in-store starting tomorrow.

Denim Air Max 1’s !

5 Mar


Nike is joining in on the denim frenzy going around, by announcing their Air Max 1 Summer 2013 Denim Pack. The three colorways all feature an entire denim upper with an extra color accent on the sole. The Air Max 1 is one of the most popular running shoes that is hardly ever used for running, but makes a steady appearance  in most sneaker collections. As will this one.

VNTG = Very Nice To Get

25 Feb

Nike is bringing out another colorway for the Nike Air Safari VNTG called “Classic Stone’. Last year was the 25 anniversary of this model, when they released four new pairs. This new version comes of fresher as there wasn’t any pre-yellowing of  the soles as they did with the previous models to make them look more vintage. These light new kicks will come out in may, which is perfect timing for when to wear them.
