Posted in Gear/Fashion, Kicks, Sports with tags , , , on November 13, 2011 by Citifiable

Nike recently opened a Flagship “Nike Brand Experience” location in Portland, OR.  There are tons of incredible displays in the 26,000 square foot space, one of which was released by Jordan Brand this week, the Air Jordan ‘Home Bulls’ Collection. Paying homage to the history and legacy of MJ, the collection includes every pair of Air Jordans from the Air Jordan 1 to last year’s AJ 2010. Each pair carries a similar look that features white uppers, red outsoles, red inner-liners and black laces. The entire collection is up on display at the new Nike Portland retail space, but there has been no word of a public release.

Lil Snob by Highsnobiety

Living in NYC with a baby on the way, I’ve been on the hunt for blogs and sites that I can go to for kids gear and street fashion.  Yesterday I came across a beta site for Lil Snob.  Connected in some way to Highsnobiety, a blog I frequent for my own taste in products, this site is a direct hit with what I’ve been looking for.  I of course want to make sure my little lady has the most up to date toys and freshest kicks, like the Nike Leopard Print Little Winter Jogger Boots shown here.  Does anyone have any other suggestions for me?  Let me know at citifiable@gmail.com.

Tiger Woods x Nike Prototype Comeback Shoe

Posted in Kicks with tags , , , , on August 3, 2011 by Citifiable

For his return to competitive action, Tiger Woods has been working with NIKE Golf and Tobie Hatfield on a FREE-inspired prototype shoe which he will wear during this week’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Yet to be named, the shoe features the sensibilities and performance enhancements of Nike’s FREE technology. The majority of the upper consists of a polyurethane coated stretch fabric, also seen within the construction of NIKE Basketball’s Hyperfuse 2011. Part of the heel is created from recycled NIKE Air Max units melted into thread and then woven together to create a strong, breathable textile material. The outsole is taken from NIKE Sportswear’s Special Field Boot designed for first-responders.

Originally developed in 2004 by a group led by Toby Hatfield, NIKE FREE is a ‘natural motion’ technology that is designed to mimic and conform to the natural motion of the foot, coupled with the protection and traction of a lightweight performance shoe. The FREE-inspired elements in Tiger’s prototype model allow greater movement for the front of the foot, increasing stability with mobility.

Nike Bowery Stadium, one of my all time favorite marketing concept shops, recently unveiled “The Wave”, a surf/skate installation based around their summer ‘Just Do It’ action sports campaign. The retail component of Stadium reflects surf and skate culture featuring a curated selection of Nike action products. Stadium MFG offers the opportunity to customize core products from the Nike Range, including t-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, board shorts and other apparel. Collections of skate and surf stickers are displayed to provide inspiration and share the history of East Coast surf/skate culture. Throughout the ‘Just Do It’ summer season, Stadium will host special programming including lectures, live musical performances, film screenings, product launches, and mentoring workshops. Weekly film showings will balance classic surf and skate movies with Nike team flicks. Celebrating the local surf and skate community, Stadium aims to deliver a culturally creative point of view and an interesting twist on product, performance, innovation and design.

Hurley x Nike Air Max 90 Phantom 4Ds

Posted in Gear/Fashion, Kicks with tags , , , on July 8, 2011 by Citifiable

Man we gotta get back to our roots – sneaker postings!!  Here’s a good one – the new Nike Salvation store in Malibu is dropping 500 pairs of these AM90’s done with Hurley and the artist Dalek.  These pickup the designs he did for Hurley’s new performance Phanton 4D line.  Why it took Nike so long to do a Hurley collab, who they’ve owned since the late 90’s, escapes me but definitely looking forward to seeing more in the future.  Release date is still TBD but could be as soon as tomorrow according to rumors…

Michael Lau continues his long tradition of projects in conjunction with Nike with his latest show, Just Done It. Freshness has a ton of good pix and a bit more detail on the show itself which celebrates Nike athletes who have cemented their position in sports history like Lance Armstrong and Michael Jordan.  This show includes a number of new works including these ink-on-wood pieces that Lau drew with ballpoint pens.
