  • What’s All the Hype Around the Nike Air Max Zero?

    Recently, Nike Design Director Graeme McMillan revealed a sketch from the Nike archives, where it had been collecting dust since 1987. The sketch was drawn by Nike’s legendary lead designer Tinker Hatfield, the man responsible for creating some of the most well known sneakers on earth, like a one man Pixar, he can’t miss. The vintage sketch was designed before the iconic Air Max 1 shoe released in the 1980s, called the Air Max Zero, a concept that would eventually turn into the Air Max 1, but because of technological limitations was never produced until now. Originally he designed the upper to be comfortable and form-fitting, with a tipless vamp, an idea borrowed from the 1985 Nike Sock Racer. The sketch also featured an external heel strap that lacked a heel counter, a design concept that remained unseen until the Nike Air Huarache release in 1991.

  • The Legend of Nike’s Air Max Innovation Explained

    1987 was the turning point for Nike. They had a budding superstar under their belt in Michael Jordan and were on the verge on something huge with their latest innovation in running shoe. When Nike designer Tinker Hatfield had the brilliant idea to make their new groundbreaking technology visible, it changed the course of the industry forever. They called the breakthrough Nike Air Max with Visible Air. “The story of visible air didn’t begin with Hatfield’s design. Rather, it started when David Forland, Nike’s Director of Cushioning Innovation, joined the team in 1985. In many respects, Forland is the world’s foremost expert in visible air. He’s been focused on pushing the technology into unexplored new territories for the past 30 years. He’s also the first to admit that the road to Air Max had its share of obstacles. In the ‘80s, Forland constructed encapsulated Air-Sole prototypes by hand. He stumbled upon a critical moment in visible air history when he rotated the bag, placing the seams on the top and bottom instead of on the perimeter. “At that exact moment the light bulb turned on. I built a new prototype right there on the spot.” – David Forland” And thus, the more »

  • Mega Man Sneakers Bring Back 8-Bit Memories

    Although it’s been years since the last Mega Man video game, the iconic Capcom character, first introduced on the NES back in 1987, is still a favorite among retro gamers. Which is probably why these Mega Man sneakers are bursting with old-school cool.

  • Running Never Felt So Soft: The Adidas Ultra Boost Review

    Adidas’ BOOST technology is now being introduced to different facets of their company, running, basketball and even casual wear with the drop of their Yeezy line. We had an opportunity to test out their newest addition, the Ultra Boost, claiming the runner has 20% more boost cushioning material making impact not only much more forgiving, but adding acceleration upon release. Upper- The first thing noticed when you try on the shoe is how well it molds to your foot, it’s PrimeKnit technology feels completely different than last years model which is a great sign for this shoe, but more importantly where PrimeKnit is headed. Although it’s probably not the best option for running outdoors in the winter, the PrimeKnit does weave tighter in high-stress areas like the toe area also keeping your foot fairly warm. The only real structure on it’s upper is the counter and a black support cage around the midfoot that is a little reminiscent of a Nike Presto (Not in the terrible way it sounds). The support cage is solid, but pretty flexible adding to the snugness of the shoe without suffocating your foot. Definitely a positive if your foot cramps if a shoe feels too tight.

  • These Back To The Future Shoes Are So Hot Right Now

    Although the hoverboard was the most wanted item from “Back to the Future Part II,” the self-lacing, light up Nike shoes worn by Marty McFly were a close second. In 2011, Nike released a limited run of MAGs that were replicas of the shoes from the movie (sans automatic laces) but only 1500 pairs were sold at tens of thousands of dollars each. It seemed as if regular folks would never get a chance to own the shoes. Until now. Universal Studios has officially licensed these Air MAG replicas available exclusively through HalloweenCostumes.com. But if you want them in time for Halloween, you’re out of luck. They’ve already sold out and the next shipment won’t be available until November. That’s still plenty of time for Christmas, though! Unfortunately, they still don’t lace automatically (rumor has it Nike will unveil that technology next year), but these replicas do light up and can be recharged via USB. A velcro strap around the ankle and elastic at the top will keep these shoes on your feet as you’re fleeing from Griff and his band of goons. They may not have the signature Nike swoosh, but at just $99 versus thousands, that is something more »
