Jerry Lorenzo looks to the 1987 NBA finals as inspiration for his latest Fear of God capsule collection, fittingly dubbed “1987.” That series saw the LA Lakers beat the Boston Celtics four games to two, and the signature green of Larry Bird’s squad finds its way onto nine individual pieces, many of which are inscribed with contradictory “I Love LA” branding. The athletic silhouettes take the form of a track suit, pullover jacket, batting practice jersey, everyday hoodie, basketball shorts, graphic tees and made in Italy socks.

The Fear of God 1987 collection is scheduled to launch April 22nd through a special pop-up space at Back Door Bottega in Bologna, Italy.

Release Date: 4/22/17 (Saturday)

Classic Kicks Launches Awesome 80s-Based Digital Magazine Debut Issue

words // Nick DePaula:

After blessing the internet with best-in-class vintage features and interviews on the footwear industry for more than a decade, Nick Santora is now bringing his top notch content to magazine form. His Classic Kicks platform, which includes a website, podcast and social media channels, just dropped a 124-page monster of a debut issue.

The first Classic Kicks Magazine Volume 1 narrows in on the 80s, highlighting some of the most beloved marketing campaigns and athletes of the time, along with cult stories and more niche-oriented profiles.

As Santora frames it, “Volume 1 focuses on the 1980s to explore key moments, athletes, and artists that elevated sportswear beyond the games and into mainstream consciousness. It was a decade defined by timeless products, captivating athletes, and genius marketing campaigns that laid the foundation for today’s sneaker culture.”

Interviews & features include:
– Nike photographers Chuck Kuhn, Bob Peterson, and Bill Sumner reveal the stories behind ‘Bo Knows,’ ‘The Jumpman,’ and ‘It’s Gotta Be The Shoes’ – three revolutionary ad campaigns.
– The roots of luxurious European sportswear are traced back to the origins of adidas and FILA.
– John Costacos, who built a poster empire conjuring up superhero athletes.
– Ricky Powell shares the stories behind his iconic Def Jam photographs
– Stanley Chow takes a break from The New Yorker to illustrate classic footballers
– Witness the skateboarding revolution of the late 1970s through the lens of Jim Goodrich
– Roger Steffens decodes the mystery of the Rasta Man Nike running sneakers.

During the heyday of Nike’s vaunted ACG line in the late ’80s and early ’90s, the brand lived up to its “All Conditions” stipulation with the launch of the Aqua Sock. The slip-on, designed by Geoff Hollister and released in 1989, was specifically created for water sports enthusiasts, featuring a spare and streamlined build atop a thin rubber outsole. The Swoosh is revisiting the unorthodox classic with a contemporary upgrade, dubbed the Aqua Sock 360. This new iteration fortifies the breathable socklike upper with a molded heel counter and a supportive three-piece outsole. Offered in a trio of colorways, the Aqua Sock 360 is available now at overseas retailers like atmos. Stay tuned for word on a stateside release.

2017 sees the Nike SB Dunk turning 15 years old, and the Swoosh is celebrating the milestone with a reengineered version of the classic silhouette. The all new Zoom Dunk Elite Low takes inspiration from the past but has its eye toward the future, featuring a one-piece upper that eliminates seams in high-wear areas. There’s also a larger Zoom Air bag concealed in the midsole, resulting in a model that’s lighter and more flexible than its predecessor. The Zoom Dunk Elite Low is set to launch in an introductory grey and blue colorway modeled off the original SB Dunk sample that Sandy Bodecker (then the GM of Nike SB) first took around to skate shops in 2002. The shoe is available beginning March 9 through SNKRS, nike.com and at select retailers.

Release Date: 3/9/17 (Thursday)
