Nike Women’s Premium Print Pack

Nike Women's Premium Print Pack

It does not happen too often that Nike presents some special and exclusive for women. Well, today is the day. We present the Spring 2011 Nike Women’s Premium Print Pack.

“Who said a picture was worth a thousand words? Consider a shoe. The minimalist and classic design aesthetic does the talking, but it’s the recycled magazines that help tell the story for this Nike Sportswear Women’s Premium Print Pack. The Nike Flash Macro Premium (sail/birch), Nike Blazer Mid Premium (sail/khaki) and Nike Air Rift Premium (sail/sport red) all feature recycled magazines that have been stitched together to create a one-of-a-kind pattern on each shoe.

Function was not compromised with this project. The surface has been treated with a transparent material for resistance and durability. Each shoe in the pack will be sold separately and debut in limited quantities within the Nike Sportswear Spring 2011 collection beginning January 1 in Europe, China and select emerging markets.”

A great idea and the execution also turned out good. Check out all three sneakers of the pack in more detail after the jump.

Perhaps inspired by or in tribute to its collaboration with its first female, Vashtie, from earlier this year, Jordan is offering the Jordan 1 “Daybreak.”  The purple-ish hue isn’t the same, but comes from the same family as Vashtie’s Jordan “Lavendar” from earlier this year. However, the lace inlays are entirely new. Via Nicekicks. More images on the next page.

Reebok ‘EasyTone Freestyle Hi’ Hybrid Sneaker

Reebok EasyTone Freestyle Hi5

A little bit of history on the Reebok “Freestyle Hi”…introduced in 1984, it was a style that took the sneaker business by storm because it was really the first athletic shoe designed for women who were working on their fitness, aerobics specifically. It was so powerful it even sent Nike’s sales reeling for a while. Jump forward to 2009 when Reebok launched its “EasyTone” style, designed to help facilitate, as the ad says, ”better legs and a better butt.”  And it, too, has been a runaway sales train in part because the industry never really learned its lessons about creating product for women. So the idea of creating a hybrid out of the two designs is certainly interesting and unlike a lot of design combos, makes sense because of the historic connections between the two. As to the effectiveness of the shoe itself when it comes to toning, that is another discussion entirely! [Update: as per reader question, the shoes should deliver in November and will be sold at Foot Action, The Finish Line, Dr. Jays, Shiekh and more, and will retail for $110.]

 Upcoming Jordan Colorways For Women

On the heels of its first-time collabo with a female, that being Vashtie, Jordan is showing previews of some more product for the ladies that will rollout during the holidays. And I have to say, of all the many pairs of kicks I have owned, it’s hard to belive I’ve never owned a pair of this colossal brand. One of these days that has to change. Five more pairs after the flip.
