The Nike Vapormax Flyknit 3 Arrives In Time With Easter Tones
Nike is joining in on the annual springtime celebration with a seasonally appropriate women’s-only take on the new Vapormax Flyknit 3.0. The shoe’s soft pastel palette is undeniably Easter-themed, using a cotton candy-esque combination of soft yellows, pinks, and an ever-so
-slight powder blue on the upper. A smoky nude tone appears on both the midfoot Swoosh and the insole, while down below the crystal-clear Vapormax cushioning unit is accented by more pink and yellow hits to complete the look.
In years past, the Swoosh Brand opted to present a veritable smorgasbord of Easter-themed releases, but they’re keeping it simple this year, and for good reason: just like Easter candy, it’s very possible to have too much of a good thing. These new Vapormax will release April 18th for $190 USD, so check out a retailer list below if you’re looking to secure a pair.
The Air Jordan 1 OG x Nike SB Releases On May 25th
The intersection between the Air Jordan 1 and the world of skate dates back to 1985 when Nike released Michael Jordan’s first ever shoe. Originally intended for the NBA hardwood, the leather constructed sneaker was a favorite among skaters for its protective and durable qualities. In fact,
most of Nike’s basketball shoes of that era were ended up on the feet of skaters, but the Air Jordan 1 has managed to be the poster-child of that dual-sport distinction thanks its apperance on ramps and backyard pools, all captured on magazine covers and homemade videos.
Back in 2014, this crossover between Jordan Brand and Nike Skateboarding came to fruition thanks to some poignant designs by skate legend Lance Mountain and artist Craig Stecyk. Lance’s version alternately paired up the original “Banned” and “Royal” colorways and covered the exterior entirely with white or black paint that naturally wore away over time. A similar concept appears in the 2019 versions which sees a Lakers
-friendly purple and yellow that transforms to a black and red, and a second light bone version that reveals a pink hue underneath. Both versions feature Nike SB tongue labels and Zoom Air insoles consistent with modern day SB footwear. According to Jordan Brand, both colorways of these cross-category mash-ups will release separately on May 25th, 2019 for an MSRP of $175.
