Nike Air Max Hyperize POP – White – University Blue – Black

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

With all the Soldier IVs and Air Max LeBron VII PSes, Nike isn’t being presumptuous: playoff basketball is a part of life when you’re a successful NBA player.  We expect to see quite a few of them in this model, but the POP designation, colourup and model makes us think ‘Carlos Boozer‘.  Who else would be in a position to wear the Nike Air Max Hyperize POP in this white blue and black colourway?  Possibly teammate Deron Williams, but aside from that, your guess is the best one.  Take a look at more detailed images after the jump and let us know if you’re wise to the meaning behind their beatuiful reflective polygonal patterning.  via Kinstor

Nike & Jordan Brand HyperElite “Carrier Classic” Uniforms

Thursday, July 11th, 2013

The USS Carl Vinson has seen more than its fair share of action during nearly 30 years of active service. This Veterans Day, the vessel will add another accolade to a long list of honors, becoming the first-ever U.S. Navy aircraft carrier to host an intercollegiate athletic event. The contest features perennial powerhouse and preseason No. 1 North Carolina versus formidable foe, Michigan State University in the Carrier Classic.” To pay homage to our veterans while authenticating the look and feel of the game, both schools will be dressed in camouflage-print Nike & Jordan Brand HyperElite uniforms – the brand’s most advanced system of dress and lightest basketball uniform ever produced. The Army Combat Uniform (ACU) pattern, which Nike obtained special permission from the U.S. military to use, celebrates the sacrifice and service of all military members, serving at home and across the world. The state-of-the-art uniforms not only pay tribute to our military, but are made with an average of 80 percent recycled polyester – made from recycled plastic bottles. This historic game marks the debut of Nike’s recycled-poly uniforms which will be worn by more than 80 NCAA teams this season.

Leo Chang Talks About The Nike Zoom KD V Video

Monday, July 8th, 2013

In his quest to lead his Oklahoma City Thunder team back to the NBA championship for the second year in a row, Kevin Durant can rightfully include Leo Chang as a member of his supporting cast. Chang is the Nike Basketball Footwear Design Director and the lead designer for each of Kevin Durant’s signature shoes, the fifth and latest iteration bearing a number of personal touches specific to the three-time NBA scoring champ. As Chang explains in an exclusive interview with Sole Collector, the process typically begins with a face-to-face meeting in Oklahoma City. Last year when Chang asked Durant why he wore no. 5 in Turkey and the Olympics, Durant replied that it all starts with the five guys on the court. Consequently, that number appears throughout the shoe’s exterior, including the five-sided pentagon and five-pointed star designs across the outsole. They hark back to Durant’s hometown of Washington D.C., even mimicking the configuration of the city’s map. In addition to the numerous personal signifiers that riddle the shoe, Chang explains that it was Durant who requested a Max Air unit in the heel of a lightweight mid-top, finished in bright colors that can be seen from the third level of the arena. Check out the engaging video below.

Nike Sells UMBRO To Iconix Brand Group For $225 Million

Monday, July 8th, 2013

Five months after it put both Cole Haan and UMBRO up for sale, Nike found a suitor for UMBRO this morning. Nike announced the sale of the UMBRO brand to Iconix Brand Group in a deal around $225 million dollars. Purchased by Nike back in 2008 as a way to diversify its product portfolio and to tap into the lucrative soccer market, UMBRO’s sale does just the opposite though a necessary step in streamlining Nike’s product offerings. In his statement, Mark Parker, Nike’s CEO, said “It is a difficult decision to divest any business, but this action will enable us to focus on our highest-potential growth opportunities,” Parker continued “UMBRO has a great heritage, but ultimately, as our category strategy has evolved, we believe Nike Football can serve the needs of footballers both on and off the pitch.”

With Neil Cole, older brother to fashion designer Kenneth Cole, at the helm, Iconix Brand Group runs one of the world’s most extensive fashion licenses operation. Iconix already owns brands such as Badgley Mischka, Mudd, Mossimo, Marc Ecko, Zoo York, London Fog, Candie’s, Ed Hardy and sells to large retailers like Wal-Mart, Targets, and Macy’s. Back in 2007, Iconix brought Jay-Z’s Rocawear for $204 million and has a stake in Rocawear’s later purchases, Artful Dodgers and Pharrell’s Billionaire Boys Club.

The sale of UMBRO will be finalize by both sides at the end of this year.

The latest Air Jordan multi-shoe pack will release late this month month under the theme of “Toro Bravo”. Featuring two versions of the Air Jordan V, the shoe is inspired by a special and heralded species of bull which is bred for the Running of the Bulls event in Pamplona, Spain. The black version is inspired by “both the Toro Bravo, known for its aggressiveness, strength, vigor and intelligence, and Michael Jordan’s basketball career, which exemplified these qualities and more.” On the other hand the red version “represents the passion, inspired by MJ’s drive for the game and taking its color from the red bandannas runners in Pamplona wear.” A special custom-box set featuring the menacing eyes of a red-eye’d pull peering through a crate keeps in line with the shoe’s concept at hand. The Toro Bravo pack is set for a May 30th release.
