Hitting online retailers and specific stockists tomorrow at 8AM is the new Travis Scott x Nike Dunk collaboration. First spotted in the JACKBOY’S video from Cactus Jack Records, Travis Scott was seen sporting a new, patchwork paisley iteration of the classic Nike Dunk silhouette. An unusual take on the iconic silhouette sees Scott’s design recipe seep through, yet again creating another unusual aesthetic to take into the sneaker industry. Available in a tan and navy colourway, the upper is created from a smooth leather which extends onto the medial and lateral sides of the shoe, the classic Nike Swoosh motif, and finally meeting the perforated toe box. The shoe is finished with an iconic ‘Cactus Jack’ tag stitched over the tongue. Available tomorrow on the 29th February, they’re currently available on Stock X from £840.
After the success of their recent Lebron 7 QS shoe in white/gold, Nike are bringing back a second design of the silhouette in a bold black and red colourway. The Nike Lebron 7 originally dropped in 2009 in a variety of unique colourways. Making its comeback in 2020, with thanks to Lebron James himself sporting the shoe during his late warm up sessions, the ‘Fairfax’ colourway is next to hit Nike stores and retailers worldwide. The specialised shoe is specifically engineered to enhance performance on the court with Nike Air Max cushioning in the sole. The foam midsole and padded insole adds extra cushioning underfoot. Durability and traction is ensured with the grippy rubber sole, supporting the quickest and slickest of movements on the court, finished with padding around the collar to give the ankle extra support and comfort. The drop date for the Nike Lebron 7 QS ‘Fairfax’ is 1st March 2020 at 8am GMT, available at Nike and selected retailers worldwide.
Also dropping on the 1st March is the Nike MX-720-818. This new, futuristic silhouette has taken inspiration from the Air Max 720 silhouette, with the oversized air bubble sole unit and minimal use of fabrics on the upper. The new MX-720-818 is inspired by space travel, constructed with materials inspired by NASA space missions. The moon-like colour palette is perfect for those who prefer muted, neutral colourways. The upper of the shoe is quilted with subtle stitching to create texture, and small branding details are printed on the lateral side of the air bubble. A subtle Swoosh is marked on each side of the sneaker whilst trims similar to the ACG pull tabs finish the shoe, placed on the tongue and the back of the ankle collar. The Nike MX-720-818 will be available in two new colourways ‘Smoke Grey/Black’ and ‘Light bone/metallic gold’ at 8AM GMT, available at a variety of stockists including Nike, Foot Locker, END and OFFSPRING.
