Combining the old with the new and the 2 most popular trainers, the Nike Air Force 1 and the Nike Flyknit a whole new world of comfort has been created.The Air Force 1 as popular as it is is a heavier sneaker compared to others so the weightless feel to the classic silhouette combined with its modern Fly knit technology is a huge success.
The Nike Sportswear team took their inspiration from long walks through Paris deciding they could make the shoe lighter, more flexible and reducing that dreaded crease along the toe vamp. By using injected unit rubber tooling instead of polyurethane tooling and micro-engineering each stitch they created the featherweight upper for “maximum comfort and minimal weight”.
The Tubular Doom launch is upon us and as the latest in the Adidas Collection we can’t wait to get our feet into them. By updating the silhouette Adidas have proven that they can continuously create new lines perfect for their consumer. The sock-like features provide comfort, a better fit and of course some added warmth which is ideal for this current weather.
Watch this space as the Tubular Doom collection will be dropping into stores in the not so distant future.
22 years after its initial release, the Nike Air Jordan VIII ‘Aqua’ makes a return this week with a fully re-mastered construction, but keeping its OG color combo.
Worn originally during the 1993 All-Star Game the classic silhouette features a black Nubuck leather upper with Bright teal blue and Aqua highlights, adding a bright contrast to the back of the shoe and tongue.
Launching this month is another Nike archive classic, the infamous Air Mowabb OG. Originally released in 1991, it was known as a hybrid between a running and hiking shoe. Utilising the ACG (All Conditions Gear) technology, the Air Mowabb was a cross between an Air Huarache and the Wildwood.
Designed for outdoor training, the Mowabb features a dynamic sock fit system and a sturdy outsole.
This style utilises the OG “Militia Green” colourway and is a masterpiece of earth tones with flashes of the classic Nike Infrared colour and a speckled midsole.
The Nike Air Mowabb OG is due to launch on the 19th November online & in store.

The metallic trend always transcends seasons and Nike have used it as their main source of inspiration for this new “Burnt Metal” pack.

In 1972, legendary running coach Bill Bowerman set out to create a running shoe that was both lightweight and durable and thus the infamous NikeCortez was born.
Years later in 1994 came the release of the iconic film Forrest Gump which reminded popular culture of this heritage silhouette and the classic colourway of white, blue and red became known as the “Forrest Gump” Cortez.
The Nike Cortez features clean leather uppers, a varsity red Swoosh and brand accents and the vintage style padded nylon tongue. The outsole boasts the original angle-cut tread which offers expert traction and grip.
This Autumn we have teamed up with Puma to release an exclusive collection of 4 archive silhouettes in some classic colourways.
Some may remember the birth of “terrace” fashion back in the ’70s/’80s, originating in the North of England amongst football fans. The look started when football fans started following their teams around Europe often coming back with trainers that weren’t available in the UK, therefore giving them one up on their mates. This obsession with European sportswear soon took hold with fans across the country and the birth of the casual “terrace” look was born.
Often suede with clean lines and slim soles, the terrace trainer has remained a classic and favourite amongst football fans through the generations. Nowadays the look isn’t quite as bold as it once was as the new generation haven’t quite brought back the shell suit jacket.
The Puma Archive pack is releasing the Roma (1968), the Trimm Quick (1970), the G. Vilas (1970) and Court Star (1980) and all stay true to their roots with the distinctive terrace aesthetic.
The pack with launch online and in-store this month, stay tuned for updates and follow @offspringhq.
