Nike Relaunches Air Force 1 Starting With ‘AF1 Lunar Force’

NikeLunarForce1 540x404 Nike Relaunches Air Force 1 Starting With AF1 Lunar Force

If you spend any time at all on Twitter you know that Nike has cranked up its influencer machine around the 30th anniversary celebration and relaunch of its mighty Air Force 1, doing the usual gathering of fashionable folks who are being spirited away to various secret locations, gifted with product (plus tons of Kool Aid), which they’re now happily Tweeting all about, pinning posts with #keepitcoming.

The above image is Nike’s AF1 Lunar Force, a lighter sleeker version of the Uptown and the first in the “Family of Force” series, which will be available for purchase starting today at Nike’s Pivot Point pop-up shop in Brooklyn near the Barclay Center (520 Atlantic Avenue).

Nike designer Marc Dolce who was responsible for the project sat down with GQ magazine and here is one quote from the q&a on how the original shoe was altered:

“We wanted to make them lighter and leaner since they can be kind of heavy. We went from making it 18 ounces to about 12. That was a big call out. When you’re walking around all day with shoes, your legs feel it and we wanted to make sure it was something you wear all the time. And what we really wanted to do was make it more flexible. I think that was something missing in the original. It wasn’t so flexible; it really didn’t feel good to the foot.”

Asics Sneakers Spring 2013

AsicsSpring2013 (9)

Catching up on another showroom visit and building on our last sneaker post, we present Asics’ sneaker offerings for Spring 2013. This is a brand we feel that has had great traction as a performance brand in the United States but is a bit more niche here as a lifestyle brand, whereas in Europe it has well-established credentials as both a fashion and performance item. For those of you who love the brand’s aesthetic no doubt you’ll appreciate the return of the always popular Liberty print (above), available in Asics retro hi or low silhouette.

See many more styles on the next page, including Asics’ take on slip-on canvas shoes, a tidal-wave trend started by Tom’s.

PumaSpring2013 540x404 Puma Sneakers  Including Wedges! Spring 2013

As sneaker afficianados, myself and SGP were excited to visit Puma’s New York showroom yesterday and see what it had in the works for Spring 2013. For all the celebration of sneakers these days, a lot of the focus is Nike, Nike-owned Converse, Adidas and Vans. All three companies do amazing work, but it’s awesome to see a variety of offerings, especially from an athletic shoe house as iconic and legendary as Puma (you know the story of Puma and Adidas being founded by rivaling brothers, correct?) We were delighted to see Puma has plenty to offer including its take on the now booming wedge sneaker trend (see above). The brand is all over the color trend, too, offering sorbet-inspired, color-blocked shoes in a variety of silhouettes, plus some more neutral shades for those of you who want a more grown and sexy looking shoe. Look for most of these to drop in February of next year, though some will hit before Christmas at Puma.

Enjoy many more looks on the next page.
