Nike Sky Hi Wedge: New Colors For Holiday

24 December 2012, 13.51 | Posted in Sneakers | 1 comment »

SkyHighDunksRed&White

Nike this year launched its Sky Hi Wedge, a high top featuring a hidden wedge. Making a straight fashion item was a bit of a bold move for the sneaker giant who shies away from anything that can’t be marketed as performance-related. Even with a relatively higher price tag, $120, the shoe did well and a lot of the initial launches have sold out completely. Now for holiday there are two new colorways, the cheery red and white shown above, both available at Nordstrom. Cheers!

A further shot of the red shoe on the next page.

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.”
On the next page see the AF1 Boot, AF1 Comfort, AF1 Downtown and AF1 Foamposite.

 Nike Launches The Studio Wrap Yoga Shoe
With the launch of the Studio Wrap, Nike introduces a better-than-barefoot experience in a three-part footwear system (wrap, ribbon and flat) made for yoga and pilates workouts. This innovation is not only functional and comfortable but is also very stylish. Designer Geogina James and Ann-Marie Fallow spent about two years on the research and development before the final Studio Wrap was presented last week. The Yoga shoes will be available in Spring 2013.

When asked what fashion designer they’d like to collaborate with on a special edition of the Studio Wrap, the designers answered that Marc Jacobs would be their first choice. Could be a nice one!

Take a more detailed look and see images from our first yoga class wearing the Studio Wrap on the next page.

Nike 36-Hour Experience – Recap

Nike 36 h experience recap 3 Nike 36 Hour Experience   Recap
Nike invited me to a “36-hour experience” in Berlin to not only show off its latest products but to put me – along with a number of other journalists and bloggers from around Europe – in the hot seat.

Women’s marathon world record holder Paula Radcliffe led us in a warm-up and gave us a motivational talk before setting out on a rave run through Tiergarten that finished in a venue where the new Flyknit One was presented. Along with a special morning yoga session the next day, we got the unique opportunity to test drive the Nike Studio Wrap, the world’s first yoga shoe, hitting stores in Spring 2013.

Afterwards, a powerful #NTC workout class with track and field sprint record holder Allyson Felix was held, setting the tone for an active 2013. Later that day, during the course of a showcase at Spindler und Klatt (an old warehouse next to the Spree river), the Nike Spring/Summer 2013 collection, as well as the new Air Max One and the Air Max 2013 were presented making the sports activities of the day totally worth it. Knowing what sports gear awaits us next season, I am definitely motivated to keep the level of fitness I reached over the past two days!
