A new colorway of the Off-White x Nike Rubber Dunk has surfaced - 25 Mar 2020 21:22

Tags:

The new off white jordan 1 blue is an interesting mix of blue and orange on mostly silver uppers.
The Off-White x Nike Rubber Dunk first made its debut at New York Fashion Week in an eye-catching black and green colorway. The sneaker fuses the layered look of 90’s runners and the silhouette of the Nike Dunk Low. Virgil’s hybrid creation is slated to debut at the 2020 Olympics in three colorways. Now an additional colorway has surfaced that combines white, light blue, orange and silver. It clearly gives off an early 2000s vibe.

The sneaker’s white base is overlayed with silver leather panels that run from the midsole to the eyelets. Light blue accents outlining the toe box and on the Swooshes and laces complement the base colors, while hits of orange on the eyelets and insoles add contrast.

Staying true to the deconstructed theme of the earlier nike air max 97 silver bullet sneakers, the Off-White x Nike Rubber Dunk will have a chunky tongue with exposed foam. At the top of the exposed tongue is a silver leather tab with “Off Nike” branding in light blue.

This iteration of the the Off-White x Nike Rubber Dunk will come with a gum outsole – a fan favorite.

the Comme des Garçons x Nike Dunk Low will be coming to Singapore! - 25 Mar 2020 21:21

Tags:

Update: March 19, 12:15pm (Singapore time)
The Comme des Garçons x Nike Dunk Low will be retailing for S$450 and will be available at nike air jordan spizike Hilton and Dover Street Market Singapore. Stay tuned for an official release date.

Update: March 19, 16:00pm (Singapore time)
Both colorways will come in men’s and women’s sizes! So you can grab either design, or both, for your rotation.

The Comme des Garçons x Nike Dunk Low is the latest high fashion take on the silhouette, stripping down the sneaker to create a whole new look.
We first got a glimpse of the Comme des Garçons x Nike Dunk Low in October 2019, during Paris Fashion Week. It got quite a lot of attention for resembling the Dior B23 – a sneaker that also played with translucent uppers and monochrome prints. This time, images from @solebyjc give us a closer look at two colorways of the Comme des Garçons x Nike Dunk Low.

We’ve known from previous leaks that both sneakers will have synthetic uppers set atop black midsoles. One colorway will be for men and the other for women. The men’s colorway is much bolder, with letter monograms scattered all over the uppers. The women’s colorway is more muted, with minimalistic color blocking that plays with blacks and greys.

Both sneakers get massive alterations at the hands of CDG. The padded tongue is flattened, and the layers of padding normally seen around the heel is removed. The uppers are now constructed out of a thin synthetic material – a departure from the layers of leather seen on traditional Dunks. Sections of the uppers are raised or colorized to recreate the look of the panels, retaining some resemblance to the classic skate sneaker. At the heel of both sneakers are leather tabs that have the Nike branding embossed on them.

The air jordan 4 royalty is slated to drop at Dover Street Market Singapore. However, due to the developing Covid-19 situation, the drop date has not been confirmed. Stay tuned for updates.

This earthy upper is set atop a pre-oxidized React midsole that looks like the ones on the jordan 6 black infrared. The 270 Air unit comes in a similar yellowish hue as well, creating a cohesively color matched midsole.

Nike Air Max 90: A 30-year retrospective of the timeless sneaker - 25 Mar 2020 21:17

Tags:

As the jordan retro 11 kids celebrates its 30th birthday this year, we look back to see how the sneaker has evolved over time.
1990 was the year Tinker Hatfield and Nike graced the world with one of their most recognizable creations – the Nike Air Max 90. Originally named the Air Max III, the Air Max 90 was an evolution of the iconic jordan retro 12 boys. The sneaker debuted with huge improvements over the Air Max 1, including the addition of durable fabrics in the upper and a motion-focused design. Undoubtedly, Tinker and Nike created one of the most recognizable and timeless Air Max sneakers to date.
Staying true to Tinker’s aim of creating sneakers that evolve and improve over time, the Air Max 90 has received major updates over the last 30 years. Let’s step back in time and check out how the Air Max 90 has evolved over the years.

The original Air Max 90 was designed as a running sneaker. Its design cues and Air Max midsole were created to provides runners with better performance while keeping them looking fresh. With a combination of leather, mesh and soft plastics, Tinker gave the sneaker a distinctive look that would be appreciated for years to come.

This was the very first hybrid sneaker Nike ever made. It took the classic air jordan 3 retro og “Infrared” upper and placed it atop the Air Max 360 midsole. These dropped as part of the Nike “One Time Only” pack and is still regarded as a grail for many today.

Another hybrid from Nike, the Air Max 90 Current is meant to provide runners with a better cooling system combined with the barefoot feeling of the Nike Free midsole. The forefoot now utilized Nike Free inspired cuts which made it much more flexible and adaptable to each of our unique foot strikes.

The tinker hatfield jordan 3 Flywire brought Flywire tech into the mix. Flywire is Nike’s proprietary set up that enables for a narrower fit, better lockdown and overall lighter construction. It was an improvement that helped the Air Max 90 maintain its status as the choice running sneaker in 2008. - Comments: 0
