He’s also responsible to the detail of the accompanying apparel offering which highlights tees and hoodies.

The Nike Air Flightposite Returns in “Legion Green”

The decline of the Nike Air Foamposite over the past few years has been well-documented and widely discussed. Largely guided by a shift in style and the sharp and cut of the silhouettes we’re wearing, the Foamposite and its many offshoots have struggled to maintain relevancy in modern-day.

Nike, true to the shoes historic past in the late ’90s and early to mid 2000’s, remains consistent in releasing new iterations of the silhouette. This week the Nike Air Flightposite makes its way back to retailers in a Legion Green colorway.

Last seen back in 2014 when a “Metallic Copper” colorway and a Knicks themed iteration released, the shoe was worn by, of course, Penny Hardaway in the latter moments of his career in Phoenix. Donned more notably by big men like Kevin Garnett and Tim Duncan.

With style cues far ahead of its time, the shoes zipped construction and neoprene fabrication register far more current than they do anything else. The Carbon Fiber shank plate does as well, although it’s largely representative of Nike Basketball past.

Fans of the Nike Air Flightposite “Legion Green” can grab a pair now at select Swoosh accounts. A Nike.com release is coming soon.

BRONX NEWS: Readers sound off on the Portal North Bridge, family separation and the Mets

Brooklyn: Last week, I participated in the Public Theater’s wonderful New York tradition of free Shakespeare in the Park. Unfortunately, human nature got in the way of a good time. As one of the early birds arriving at five a.m. to get in line, I was immediately told where to stand by a sizable group of ticket scalpers. These men all appeared to know each other, fist-bumping and backslapping like colleagues going to work. Once on line, I was flanked by them on both sides, spending an entire morning listening to their plans and schemes, setting prices and conferring with customers on the phone. Clearly, this is not what Joe Papp had intended. The man battled the formidable Robert Moses to ensure free Shakespeare for everyone. I understand this is a way to make some quick cash for people who need it, but it was like spending six hours with Joe Buck and Ratso Rizzo from “Midnight Cowboy.” J.B. McGeever

Jordan Brand has clearly hit on a winning formula with its recent run of Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG releases. The basic concept: offer variations on the original Black Toe colorway by applying a contrasting hue to the otherwise neutral black and white palette. One such example is this upcoming pair in Court Purple, which is essentially a retread of the Air Jordan 1 “Bred Toe” from early this year, featuring purple paneling instead of red. Word on the street is these will arrive on store shelves in September. Stay tuned for exact release details.

Legendary artist Takashi Murakami stole a bit of the spotlight at the OFF-WHITE Spring/Summer 2019 runway show at Paris Fashion Week, courtesy of these custom Nike Air Force 1s on his feet. Designed by Studio Hagel, the shoe carries a white leather base, featuring a crudely stitched neon thread running in a zig-zag pattern across the sides, as well as a shroud that obscures the lace bed and tongue. It’s finished in Murakami’s signature flowers, and secured in the back via yellow plastic lace locks. Does this one-off have you hoping for an official collaboration between Nike and the famed Japanese artist?

Virgil Abloh’s First Louis Vuitton Sneaker Revealed

Ahead of Virgil Abloh‘s Paris Fashion Week debut with louis Vuitton later tonight, his new coworker, LV’s Head of Design Men’s Footwear, Mathias Patillon, has offered a preview of Abloh’s very-first sneaker.

The vivid image, showing a pair of sneakers tossed into the air with only the bottom visible, draws immediate comparisons to the 1988 produced Air Jordan 3. The coloring, design, brand placement — everything leans toward a direct ode to the Tinker Hatfield designed silhouette. Although overt, this reference isn’t far removed from Abloh’s deconstruction of the Air Jordan 1 with his highly popular OFF WHITE collaboration.

Seen in greater detail on the feet of ASAP Rocky, a much more apparent departure from traditional sneaker design is noted. Contrasting the sporty outsole is a retro-fitted upper with unique paneling and an equally vintage ankle strap. Yet even with these aforementioned old school components, Abloh’s design evokes a modern contemporary emotion with premium materials and a high-arching build. The retro basketball sneaker is, to some degree, wrapped in a futuristic cocoon.

Abloh’s Louis Vuitton 408 Sneakers are expected to release in conjunction with the French fashion houses spring/summer 2019 collection.
