The Nike Roshe Run Woven Pack will be arriving in late March at Urban Industry and we can’t wait to see what you make of it.

Nike Roshe One Premium Plus “White/Black”
Introducing a brand new iteration of the Roshe Run silhouette, Nike has unveiled the latest Roshe One Premium Plus in a black and white colorway. The upper is rendered with a striped motif and is constructed with a classic mesh base and complex covering of TPU stripes along the body. A solid black heel counter and Swoosh branding adds eye-catching accents to the sneaker, directly contrasting the stark white midsole. Although the black and white model is shown here, the new offering will also be available in vibrant colorations of Racer Blue and Bright Crimson. The new Roshe One Premium Plus retails for $110 USD and is available at select stockists such as Rock City Kicks.

Nike Takes Inspiration From Okinawa’s Cherry Blossoms for Latest Roshe One
Nike‘s Roshe One silhouette is already simple and minimal, so mixing it up with the zen nature of Japanese cherry blossoms seems to be a no-brainer. The Dylan Raasch-designed shoe was inspired by serenity and zen anyway, so this Cherry Blossom iteration of the now Retro favorite is definitely worth a double take. While it’s not explicitly feminine due to its black and white color palette, the shoe features subtle patterns and overall, the cherry blossoms aren’t immediately discernible, making this shoe adequate for anyone. Expect these to hit Nike retailers soon.

Nike continue to update their most popular silhouettes with premium materials with high levels of detail and technical features. This Spring, we see the Roshe Run’s re-worked, applying Nike’s woven technique to the upper as seen on the likes of the Woven Foot-scapes and Mayfly.

The Nike Roshe Run is best known for being lightweight and comfortable and this latest version proves to be even more so. Woven detailing features on the toe box and leads up to the laces for a sleek look. The shoe is constructed from from soft leather on the upper and suede panelling on the heel. The sole unit is made up of NM (Natural Motion) which further enhances the shoes streamlined look.

Everything We Know About Supreme’s Nike Air More Uptempo Collaboration

By incorporating Flyknit, according to the brand, the shoe is the lightest Air Max 1 released by the brand. But legendary Nike designer Tinker Hatfield — the man behind of the original Air Max 1 — did not design the shoe. Instead, he handed the reins to Ben Yun for the upcoming release.

“I clearly have a strong affinity for the Air Max; however, it’s even more fun and amazing to watch our younger design and development teams operate,” he said. “Design innovation is picking up speed around here, and a perfect example is through Flyknit. It’s getting lighter and more zoned for performance than I could ever have imagined.”Yun’s design includes Flyknit, the first time the Air Max 1 has been paired with the material, which also boasts open Flyknit construction in the toe and tongue for ventilation and close construction in the heel for support, according to the brand.

“Firstly, the tooling is the most comfortable, the most lightweight that we have had so far on this shoe: it hardly feels like you’re wearing a shoe at all,” Yun said. “Secondly, [it] feels like you’re wearing a T-shirt or a sweater in the way that it really conforms and fits to your own foot. Thirdly, we wanted to eliminate as much excess material and design as possible to stay true to the original shoe: no distraction inside or outside.”

A Masterful Take on the Nike Air Max 1

Since early January, we have learned more about what it is Nike will have in store for Nike Air Max Day and now it looks like that lineup has another new addition in the form of another Nike Air Max 1 model. The Nike Air Max 1 ‘Masters of Air’ features a premium black leather upper with a “What The” patterned mud-guard that includes various materials and color schemes used on many Nike silhouettes. These colors and materials include; OG Red, Safari, Patta, Leopard, Zebra and Viotech. The colorway is said to be in connection with the short documentary that Nike put out about avid Air Max collectors. There is no word on the official release date but expect this shoe to drop during the week of Air Max Day, March 26th and more than like for a pretty based on the premium materials used.

NIKE SB UNVEILS DEBUT BRIAN ANDERSON APPAREL COLLECTION

“I just was sitting at a café while we were filming for our last video in Seattle, and I just drew up a hockey jersey,” he remembers. Anderson sent the drawing to Beaverton, and in time the sketch became the basis for a capsule offering which pulls together the jersey, Nike Icon Hoodie, Nike Shield Coaches jacket and sunglasses. The collection is rounded out by a pair of bright yellow Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel but does not include trousers. At 6’ 4”, it’s not easy for Anderson to find a perfect pant fit.

The 40-year-old cares deeply about the way clothes feel. He’s fluent in the nuances of the consummate white T-shirt and believes the world needs a new size, “Large Extra,” to fill a vast void for those who need a little space but don’t want to swim in a boxy cut.

For instance, the average hockey jersey is made to cover pads, requiring large armholes and over-broad shoulders. “Often hockey jerseys are built so huge. I could kind of get away with wearing them, because I’m a big guy, but I had one that was like a rock ‘n’ roll merch kind that I got from some website,” says Anderson.

“I sent it to campus to be like, ‘Hey guys, let’s follow this pattern,’” he continues. “The wrists and the forearms are not super baggy and wavy. The fitting is great.”

The piece, which comes in yellow or black, is adorned with a brash jaguar head, captain’s “C” and a Swoosh, hand drawn by Anderson himself (“It is a little off kilter and imperfect, which I think is so rad,” he says.) His graphic sensibility also extends to the BA Icon Hoodie that Anderson describes as having “nice and chunky” embroidery.

“When I did that, I looked up old ’80s Nike stuff. And some of the logos were so huge,” he explains. “So I thought, ‘Why not make it that way, instead of some subtle thing…just put the logo on blast.’”

As for the jacket, Anderson says, “It’s chill.” On the sunglasses, he’s extended the patterning of the jersey graphic onto the frames. And, those yellow Bruins have a “really good” upper.
