Tinker Hatfield’s iconic technological advancement of visible air was introduced to the world in 1987 with the Nike Air Max 1. Nike Sportswear unveiled that earlier samples of another silhouette were kept secret for some time until the celebration of Air Max Day brought us the truly original Air Max Zero.The Nike Air Max Zero was based on a design that never made it past the early development stages of Tinker’s creative process and now returns this summer in three new colorways. The simple trio pairs understated combinations of “Triple White”, Black/Dark Grey, and White/Cool Grey for a refined lifestyle aesthetic exclusive in women’s size runs.The upper utilizes a breathable ventilated mesh while synthetic tape overlays add a lightweight yet supportive fit. The Nike Air Max 1’s outsole unit gets an Ultra Moire-inspired treatment with Air Max technology on the heel for a comfortable ride. Check out more photos below and stay tuned for this Nike Air Max Zero trio to arrive at retailers later this summer.
The next Yeezy Boost 350 v2 release is confirmed to be this October in the Beluga 2.0 colorway, a slightly altered version of the first-ever Yeezy Boost 350 v2 release. However, all eyes are on December as the two most colorful Yeezysever are dropping – the “Blue Tint” and “Semi Frozen Yellow”. The Blue Tint Yeezys feature a neutral white/grey upper with a popping red on the SPLY-350 type and a soothing blue tint inner lining, while the Semi Frozen Yellow Yeezys pair a bright yellow and dark grey on the upper with a red SPLY-350 type. Both are set to drop in October in limited quantity, so enjoy these first looks for now and we’ll update you on pricing and release date information.
In another case of “you’ll never know what you’ll find at an outlet, the adidas Yeezy Boost 750 “Triple Black” was spotted at an adidas outlet in the UK. According to Josh Sta Ana, the lucky sneakerhead who stumbled upon them not long ago, the shoes did not come with the original box and were extremely scuffed up as the shoes are displayed out in the open. The craziest part? They were marked down to £34.95.So, how do Yeezys and up at outlets? For the same reason that Fragment Jordan 1s appear at Marshalls. The shoes are either returned long after a release (the black Yeezy Boost 750 originally dropped in December 2015) and are subsequently sent by the brand from the retail store to the outlet or discount store. They’re just mere units in the grand scheme of things, and outlets and discount stores exist to liquidate product as quickly as possible. These instances are extremely rare, but certainly not the first of its kind.
