Two Different UNDEFEATED x Nike Collections Are Arriving In 2019

Amidst upcoming adidas and Air Jordan releases 2019, Nike and apparel brand UNDEFEATED have teamed up to release two different collections. Last year, Nike celebrated Mamba Day on August 24th, 2018 by teaming up with UNDEFEATED to release a Kobe Proto PE Pack. The pack included four different colorways of the Nike Kobe Proto, all of which could only be copped from select UNDEFEATED locations that were revealed via Nike SNKRS Pass. One of them was even dressed up in the color scheme of the Los Angeles Lakers. It seems Nike and UNDEFEATED are collaborating once again for Mamba Day 2019, this time releasing a Kobe 4 Proto Collection.

The fact that Nike and UNDEFEATED were potentially working together on a Kobe 4 Proto Collection was first reported on the first day of 2019. As of now, it is somewhat certain that the collection will indeed hit the shelves along with Air Jordan releases 2019 in August, probably around Mamba Day. It will reportedly include three different colorways, one of which was recently worn by DeMar DeRozan during a game, as you can see above. This one appears to have glossy uppers that are mostly dressed up in a Teal hue, while featuring Black- and Team Orange-colored detailing, along with plain White soles.

The second upcoming collaboration between Nike and UNDEFEATED, which was revealed back in February this year, revolves around the Air Max 90. While there are no photos of the actual sneakers, the image above by PY_RATES™ (@py_rates) offers some insight. Apparently, the collection will include eight different colorways, two of which will also be available in both pre-school and toddler sizes as well. Out of these eight iterations, four will have Black-colored uppers while the other four will have plain White uppers, and they will all also feature contrasting, vibrant accents. This entire Nike x UNDEFEATED Air Max 90 Collection will arrive at retailers during Fall 2019.

This Air VaporMax 2019 & Vapormax Flyknit 3 Are Nike’s Easter Releases

While there do not seem to be any Air Jordan releases for Easter so far, Nike is releasing an Air VaporMax 2019 and a Vapormax Flyknit 3. Last year, Nike released an “Easter” colorway of the Air Force 1 Low. It was a multicolored iteration that was dressed up in a combination of pastel hues, namely Barely Volt, Ice Blue, Hyper Turquoise and Sail. These hues actually appeared as a part of a unique patchwork design over its suede uppers. Since this was an Easter release, graphics of opened Easter eggs could be spotted on its insoles and tongues. This year, Nike seems to have two different Easter releases.

The first is a WMNS colorway of the Nike Air VaporMax 2019 that has been dubbed “Teal Tint.” It appears to be an almost tonal iteration. However, despite looking tonal, its synthetic infused uppers are actually dressed up in multiple yet similar hues. These primarily include the Teal Tint hue it gets its nickname from, along with Hyper Turquoise and Tropical Twist. White can be spotted over all of the branding, both on the insoles and the uppers. Instead of contrasting with the uppers, its soles match the uppers and are tonal as well since they are entirely covered in Teal Tint too.

Also joining any potential Air Jordan releases this Easter is the Nike Vapormax Flyknit 3.0 WMNS colorway you see above. Its color scheme could be compared to that of last year’s Air Force 1 Low “Easter” iteration due to the pastel palette it appears to be sporting. All of the hues that can be spotted over its Flyknit uppers are soft and subtle, and include Barely Volt, Diffused Taupe and Pink Tint. While its Vapormax soles with full-length Air units are completely translucent, a few of the same hues can be spotted over it too. Nike may have drawn inspiration from Easter candy and Easter eggs for this iteration.

The Nike “On Air” Contest-Winning Air Max 98 “La Mezcla” Is Available

The Air Max 98 “La Mezcia” designed by Gabrielle Serrano for the 2018 Nike: On Air Contest will be among upcoming Air Jordan releases 2019. Back in 2018, Nike hosted workshops for its On Air Contest in multiple cities, namely London, New York City, Paris, Shanghai, Seoul and Tokyo. Thousands of Nike fans attended those workshops and drew inspiration from their local communities to design a variety of different Air Max and Air VaporMax colorways. Gabrielle Serrano was one of the six winners, who then proceeded to create the first samples of their designs with the help of Nike designers and developers.

The Nike Air Max “Palm” Pack Made Its Retail Debut On April 10th 2019

Amidst the Air Jordan releases 2019 that recently hit the shelves, this Nike Air Max Plus “Palm” Pack arrived at retailers as well. The Nike Air Max Plus became somewhat of a cultural phenomenon soon after it debuted back in 1998. Ever since, Nike has released countless iteration and numerous variations of the Air Max Plus. It was veteran Nike designer Sean McDowell who designed the classic running shoe utilizing groundbreaking manufacturing techniques. It also introduced Tuned Air and thus, became known as “Tn.” The “Palm” Pack that just made its retail debut is a nod to the aesthetic influence behind the Air Max Plus.

It may seem hard to believe but Sean McDowell came up with the concept for the Air Max Plus while spending time at the beaches of Florida. More specifically, he was inspired by the swaying palm trees that he saw “blowing in the wind” one evening around dusk. He immediately sketched the palm trees and that sketch was eventually transformed into the quarter panel of the Air Max Plus. For the shank of the Air Max Plus, he drew inspiration from a whale’s tale and simply modified it. As mentioned, the Air Max Plus debuted featuring the “Tn” branding, signifying that it was equipped with Nike’s Tuned Air cushioning.

One of these two Air Max Plus iterations sports a darker color scheme, while the other one has a lighter one. The darker one is dressed up in a combination of Blue, Navy and White, while the lighter one is dressed up in Green and White. Metallic Silver-colored overlays appear on both iterations and their midsoles are plain White. Another common detail that these two share is the Orange- and Red-colored accents that can be spotted over the media sides of the Air Max pod in the heels. This is apparently inspired by the original “Sunset” colorway of the Air Max Plus from 1998.

Nike Will Be Releasing A “Chinese New Year” 2019 Collection Next Month

Last year, it was Jordan Brand that released a “Chinese New YearPack commemorating the beginning of the Year of the Rooster. The pack consisted of special colorways of the Air Jordan 6 and the Air Jordan 32 Low. Both models featured nearly allBlack uppers with firework and traditional floral patterns embroidered onto them. While there was no collection from Nike, an Air Foamposite One “Chinese New Year” colorway was released back in February 2018. While its color scheme was different, it also featured similar firework graphics over its Foam shell uppers.

Fat Joe Gave Away An Air Max Pack In Foot Locker’s Digital Spot

Back in August, Nike released the “Discover Your Air” Pack that consisted of matching Air Max 95, Air Max Plus and Air Max Plus 97 colorways. It was a Foot Locker exclusive release that hit the shelves on August 23th, 2018. It was a retro-themed pack inspired by the 90s, which Nike referred to as “The Era That Inspired AIR.” The color scheme of all three sneakers was similar to that of the Air Huarache Light OG “Ultramarine” that made its retail debut back in 1993. Nike and Footlocker teamed up for another “Discover Your Air” campaign, which includes a digital spot featuring rapper Fat Joe.
If you have not already figured it out, the whole purpose of Foot Locker x Nike “Discover Your Air” campaign is to celebrate the 90s. The Fat Joe Carpool Karaoke-like digital spot was named “Mo Flow Cab Hail The ‘90s.” It featured Fat Joe riding in the front passenger seat of a taxi, making passengers in the back seat to rap along with popular 90’s hip-hop songs. The passengers included comedian Haha Davis, and rappers LGP Qua and Sheck Wes. The passengers who successfully completed the 90s flow were driven to the nearest Foot Locker store to receive their very own Air Max “Frequency” Pack.
