COMING SOON | Nike x Liberty

Nike x Liberty is back with it’s tenth collaboration and for the first time updating a heritage print with a modern polka dot overlay.


Using some of Nike’s favourite silhouettes and adding 3 new sneakerboot styles, this AW14 collection takes on the Belmont Ivy print in navy and burgundy for a classic, autumnal feel.

When taking a closer look at the print the ivy leaves are in fact ripped up pieces of the One Pound note, a subtle nod to Liberty’s British heritage.

The Nike x Liberty collection is launching in store and online here on 2nd December.




Nike Sneakerboots Collection – Air Max 90

Built around the idea that “more is more,” the Nike Air Max 90 defined an era of excess and bigger-than-life personalities.

Ho14_SneakerBoots_Hero_Mens_AirMax90_33423 In the past, dreadful weather confined the Air Max 90 to the wardrobe, but now the SneakerBoot version breaks that boundary.


The powerhouse Nike designer Tinker Hatfield created the original Nike Air Max 90 more than two decades ago, and the beloved shoe isn’t easy to adapt, explains designer Ben Yun about the SneakerBoot creation process:

“It was very intimidating. The shoe is so well recognized, I sometimes feel like changing it in any way is at some level destroying it” 

Yun then ruminated on the core characteristics of Nike SneakerBoots: timeless Nike footwear styles, lightweight functionality and rugged resistance to the elements.


After honing the aesthetics of the Air Max 90 SneakerBoot, Yun then addressed functionality. The fully lined, gusseted, and waterproof upper combines with a reflective Swoosh logo, tongue, and quarter panels, as well as an aggressive outsole pattern to make the Air Max 90 SneakerBoot winter’s worst nightmare. Other details include oversized eyestays and heel-tabs, and the classic Air Max 90 midsole design that preserves the original DNA that makes the Air Max 90 SneakerBoot unmistakably Air Max.





Summer 2014 sees the release of a brand new silhouette from Nike, the Air Flight Squad QS trainer. Part of a Quickstrike pack, the first of the two styles to drop is the ‘white safari’ and features a retro look with a mixed colourway of white leather uppers, grey safari printed panels, red accents and a black speckled midsole all sat atop an icy blue outsole.



The Air Flight Squad is expected to launch in store and online here on Saturday 21st June 2014


COMING SOON: Air Max 93 “OG” Pack

It has been over 20 years since Tinker Hatfield created the Nike Air Max 93 and this retro style is back with the “OG” pack, sporting the original “Citrus” and ” Menthol” colourways.


Keeping true to the original design, the Air Max 93 features a white leather and mesh upper with the classic bright 90’s colours on selected panels. With a neoprene sock like fit, reminiscent of the Huarache and Mowabb, the Air Max 93 was the first to feature a blow moulded cushioned sole with all around visible Air Unit, dubbed the ‘bubble’.

Coming soon to all Offspring stores and online here.


Nike Air Max 1 “Air Max Day”

March 26, 1987 saw the release of one of Nike’s most iconic trainers, the Air Max 1. This revolutionary shoe featured the first visible Air cushioning in the sole and changed how Nike developed running trainers. With suede and nylon mesh uppers and the iconic Swoosh at the side, the Air Max 1 held on to the classic Nike aesthetic but took a huge contemporary step with its visible technology.

27 years have passed and we have seen the Air Max incorporated in many Nike styles, mixing with a variety of colourways, materials and newer Nike technology, such as Hyperfuse and Lunar. In celebration of nearly 3 decades of Air soles, Nike are declaring March 26th “Air Max Day”, encouraging Nike fans to wear their favourite Air Max trainers and share with the world via social media.


To coincide with the marking of “Air Max Day”, Nike are launching a limited edition Air Max 1 that features the OG ‘University Red’ colourway with a bright Volt yellow sole, fusing the past and the present. The trainer is finally topped off with ‘3.26’ detail on the tongue to mark this Swoosh sanctioned holiday.


The Quickstrike Air Max 1 “Air Max Day” is currently sold out on our website but still available in Offspring stores, check your local store for availability.


Here are a handful of favourite Air Max’s from some of the team at Offspring HQ, so make sure that like us you wear your favourite Air Max’s and post them on Facebook, Twitter (@offspringshoes) or Instagram and use the hashtag #OFFSPRINGAMDay so we can all join in with the celebration of one of the best Nike trainers of all time.


Nike Crescent City Collection

Another innovative pack from sporting heavyweights Nike, showcasing a collection that takes inspiration from Louisiana, also known as Crescent City. Year after year, the US basketball league’s best come together to compete for bragging rights in a showcase of premier talent and this year’s festivities are held in the heart of New Orleans.


As the NOLA Gumbo League Collection pays homage to what happens on the hardwood, the Nike Sportswear Crescent City Collection showcases the characteristics that make New Orleans different from anywhere else: the food, culture and distinctive wildlife. These three qualities take centre stage on Nike’s Flystepper 2K3, Air Up ’14, and Air Force 1 Low Comfort, designs as unique as the city that inspired them.


In New Orleans, alligators are king of the land and remembrance of another king’s first pair of Nike’s, the Flystepper 2K3 combines an elevated silhouette and adds the signature perforated quarter panels of the Zoom 2K3. Featuring black faux-alligator strap enclosures, the real tribute to the tough skin of Alligator Mississippi  takes form in a raised synthetic mesh covering the toe.


 As the best of the best come together in the Big Easy, the Nike Air Force 1 Low Comfort pays tribute in kind. Like Louisiana’s favourite dish, gumbo, the latest Air Force 1 is a collage of the most memorable Nike Sportswear upper materials,such as foamposite and cork and prints including elephant, alligator, pony hair, and safari.



Crawfish are a NOLA staple and any New Orleanian will tell you they are best when boiled. A crave-worthy take on the Nike Air Up mimics fresh-out-of-the-pot crawfish. The Air Up 2014 gets the job done with no seasoning required, featuring a crustacean-red upper complete with water droplets and a steamy graphic.

Get your hands on the Quickstrike styles from this limited and unique pack online here and in selected Offspring stores. Check your local Offspring store for availability.


Nike Air Max 1

The trainer that has had a huge impact in the last few years and become an absolute must for every sneaker head. The Nike Air Max 1 was lying dormant for many years as people favoured the simpler, subtle designs, but with the sudden demand for retro and statement trainers, the Air Max 1 slotted in perfectly.

First released in 1987, when many of its current wearers were born, the Air Max 1 updated a classic running silhouette, with the Nike Air cushioning unit on full display with its unique transparent window which proved to be a huge hit with trainer fans everywhere.

Since 1987 the Air Max 1 has been produced in a variety of colourways and fabric combinations and the ‘90s saw slight design changes in design to form the Air Max 1 we see today. With collaborative designs from Liberty of London, APC, Kid Robot and illustrator Ben Drury to name a few, the Air Max 1 has become an iconic design that can be easily transformed with multiple panels, unique textures and an endless combination of colours.

In the last two years the demand for this retro classic has seen Nike producing a wide variety of packs, Quickstrikes and collaborations utilizing the latest in their ever evolving technology.The latest offering from Nike is from their Quickstrike ‘Tape’ Pack, giving the seamless tape treatment to the most popular white, grey and red OG colourway. This futuristic version of its original colourway features engineered mesh, suede and Hyperfuse tape uppers.

With the OG release and new colours dropping monthly, the Air Max 1 keeps us interested and we at Offspring are looking forward to watching this iconic model evolve.

The Nike Air Max 1 ‘Tape’ white, grey and red model is available now in all Offspring stores and online at
