Nike Free

Sneaker Exclusive>>Sneaker Collection>>Nike Free

Nearly 11 years have passed since the Nike Free first made its retail debut. Nike Free is currently a bestseller for Nike, considering that the shoe is the reason barefoot running has become a conventional concept. Today, the Nike Free is regarded as an equally athletic and fashionable shoe, rather than footwear exclusive for runners.

It was Eric Avar, Nike’s current creative director, and Tobie Hatfield, Tinker Hatfield’s younger brother, who originally designed the Nike Free so that rubbers would have a more flexible shoe. They drew inspiration from athletes that were running and training barefoot on the golf course of Stanford University.

Back at Nike campus, they conducted a study by taping the pressure-measuring insoles to the feet of a group of men and women. They used high speed cameras to capture data while studying the foot in motion. The extensive study lasted for 8 years, helping them understand what a “natural” landing stride is like, which prompted Nike to introduce a new running shoe. The new running shoe was the Nike Free, which featured an unconventional shape, reduced heel to toe offset, and was equipped with a Phylon flexible outsole.

For Nike, the Free system was a paramount milestone that enable runners to take advantage of a more natural foot movement. From the barefoot running approach that Nike had utilized to devise this innovative shoe, the Free has transitioned to become an all-around training shoe. The latest iteration of model was the highly flexible Free Trainer 5.0 that Nike had introduced back in 2003, inspired by a Chinese finger trap.

Nike Free is currently a vast category both at Nike and Sneaker1, and Nike Sportswear has even expanded it into casual wear. Ever since being introduced, the Nike Free Powerline has taken the sneaker community by storm. The previous month came to an end with the unveiling of a gradient “Vivid Purple/Black-Court Purple-Flint Silver” colorway of the Nike Free Hypervenom 2. Nike Free Trainer 1.0 has also hit the shelves, which returns to the concept of barefoot training, while a Nike Free Ace Leather “Wheat” is also on its way to rretailers in November, likely as a part of Nike’s “Wheat” Pack.

Leaks, rumors and speculation related to the Nike LeBron 12 had already begun way back in May 2014, all starting with an Instagram photo.

Nike Air Max 90

Sneaker Exclusive>>Sneaker Collection>>Nike Air Max 90

The Air Max 90 is truly an “iconic” sneaker model because it is frequently available and is a representative of Nike’s identity. Nike first dropped the Air Max 90 back in 1990, but back then it was simply known as the “Air Max” or the Air Max III. The model’s name was not officially changed to Air Max 90 until 200. The Air Max 90 made its retail debut in a “Black/Cool-Grey/Red/White” colorway. Ever since, the uppers of the Nike Air Max 90 have always been a combination of Duromesh, synthetic leather and synthetic suede. Apart from the colorways of the Air Max 90 that Nike continues to release, it was not so long ago that they dropped special iterations for Steve Nash and Huf, the apparel brand.

Nike Air Max 1

Sneaker Exclusive>>Sneaker Collection>>Nike Air Max 1

It was back in 1987 when Mark Park and Tinker Hatfield daringly joined forces to daringly design a running shoe that would stand out from the rest. Indeed, the Nike Max proved to be one of Nike’s most groundbreaking and innovative designs at that time. The sneakerheads of today also recognize the shoe as the Air Max 1 and the Air Max 87. It was the very first running shoe of its kind, with its heel containing a visible Air Cushioning unit that Nike had introduced in 1979. It was the Air Max 1 that set the trend for Nike to incorporate their innovative technology in the innumerable designs that they release from then onwards. Continue reading Nike Air Max 1

Foamposites

Sneaker Exclusive>>Sneaker Collection>>Foamposites 2016-2017

The Air Foamposite is one of Nike’s most recognized models. Both its versions, the Foamposite One and the Foamposite Pro, had originally made their retail debuts back in 1997, so the iconic and revolutionary silhouette has already been around for nineteen years. Both forms of the Air Foamposite had equally aided that generation of basketball athletes and opened the minds of sneaker designers of that time.

The inspiration behind the Foamposite model actually came from sunglass protection. Thus, Nike had stepped outside of that era’s norm for sneaker designs, ending up with a basketball shoe that combined foam-like, seamless, polyurethane uppers with the most revolutionary performance characteristics. In 2017, Nike will celebrate the Air Foamposite’s 20th Anniversary and in commemoration of the milestone, three of most popular Air Foamposite One colorways are turning next year.

Back in mid-August, Nike had revealed that it is bringing back the iconic, original “Dark Neon Royal,” and the highly popular retro “Copper” and “Eggplant” colorways. Back in 2010, these two retro colorways of this futuristic model were significantly coveted. Even though Nike has not had much to offer as far as the Air Foamposite Pro is concerned, but keep checking back to get further news and updates about upcoming Air Foamposite 2017 releases.
