Nike Air Max 97 “Desert and Sky”

Nike returns with a fresh summer footwear offering that is the Air Max 97 “Desert and Sky” silhouette. The beloved low-top’s makeup is reminiscent of a desert horizon with the bright blue portion of the upper mimicking a sweeping sky followed with “Desert Sand and Royal Tan” hues hitting the lower section to imitate the hot terrain. Completing the design is an all black sole unit and Swoosh branding on the midsection for added contrast. –HB


Nike SF-AF1 High ‘Starry Strap’

Although moving deeper into the warmer months of summer, Nike’s rugged military-influenced SF-AF1sneakerboot has steadily gotten play, having dropped in a myriad of colorway iterations over the past few months alone.

Nike Air Max 97 “Royal Mesh”

For its latest Air Max 97 makeover, Nike unveils the “Royal Mesh” colorway. Now that the 20th anniversary celebration is over, Nike has been testing out everything from new materials, to new soles on its iconic runner. Here, the model features a mostly black mesh upper with tumbled leather panels weaving across the body. Among those tonal panels is a bright royal blue stripe to match the royal blue mini Swooshes on each side. Rounding out this colorway is a crisp white midsole. –HB

Nike‘s Air VaporMax Utility Flyknit receives a clean makeover for the warm weather, dubbed “Light Bone/Summit White.” A black heel panel contrasts with a lighter-hued midsole and upper, blending the knit detailing and straps with light beige detailing. Matching shades on the laces and clear Air outsole complement the muted design, with contrasting orange detailing appearing on the heel pull tab and as tabs on the forefoot, offering a subtle pop of color against the otherwise understated upper. –HB

adidas and Yohji Yamamoto have released their Y-3 Kusari sneaker in “Triple Black.” The technical silhouette was previously offered in two contrast black and white colorways, but this time it assumes a stealthier tonal look. The Y-3 Kusari features a sleek build with a premium multi-textile upper of mesh, leather and suede. A wide-set lacing system wraps over a neoprene tongue, while a blacked-out full-length BOOST midsole completes the “Triple Black” scheme. You can pick these up now for $280. –HB

Nike‘s celebratory “Just Do It” collection expands with a new iteration of the Huarache City Low model. Following last months white and black colorway, this new style incorporates the Swoosh’s signature orange with contrasting white and black. Suede, mesh and leather joins forces throughout the sneaker with “Just Do It” applied to the heel. Retailing for $120, these will arrive sometime this August at select Nike Sportswear retailers. –HB


adidas AlphaBOUNCE Instinct

The new silhouette has a particular emphasis on versatility and is designed with the natural movement of the human body in mind. It features many of the same elements of the OG AlphaBOUNCE model with advanced materials and construction. Notable performance details include an updated Adaptive Torsion System with an “S”-curve pattern, a breathable engineered mesh upper geared for multi-directional movement, and a rubber outsole that provides traction in different weather conditions. These release on July 7th for $120. –HB
