 Nike has given the Air Max 97 a welcomed update for Fall/Winter 2019, adding a faded “Black/Reflective Silver/White” colorway.

The retro-futuristic model features a white-to-black colorway along its entire upper, while 3M reflective silver ripple-like stripes wave throughout its body. This transitional colorway is echoed in the sole unit, as the white midsole, contrasting black full-length Air unit and black outsole follow the flowing lines of the AM97.

Contrasting the faded colorway are various blocked-out sections, such as the all-black tongue, white Swoosh on the mid-panel, and the set of round laces. At the rear, Nike has added its famous slogan “Just Do It” to the black heel tab.

 Las Vegas-based sneaker boutique Feature has showcased its next Vans Vault collaboration, introducing the “Sinner’s Club” Part II comprised of an Old Skool LX and Authentic LX.

The collection draws inspiration from the shop’s surroundings once more, embodying Sin City and its bright lights, lavish hotels, and iconic casinos. To reflect the extravagance of Las Vegas, Feature has covered its limited-edition Vans Vault pairs in a patchwork makeup of velvet, patent leather, suede, and glitter fabrication.

The feature utilizes traditional Vans patterns such as the checkerboard motif on its Old Skool LX and introduces glitter to the Jazz Stripe, laces, and tongue trim. Green embroidery has been used on the heels to channel the neon lights of Vegas, too. For the Authentic LX, Feature adds the same embroidery to the toe box and adds glitter to the heel stripe.

Take a look at Feature’s vintage hotel-styled lookbook spotlighting its upcoming Vans Vault “Sinner’s Club” Part II collection in the gallery above,  and pick up a pair for yourself at ComplexCon on November 2 and 3. Pairs range from $160 to $165 USD for adults and $85 to $90 USD for toddlers.

 Following the partnership from last fall, stalwart Japanese label N.HOOLYWOOD rejoins Casio G-SHOCK for another bespoke timepiece. This joint effort sees the pair once again focusing on the DW-5600, this time executing the timeless accessory in a bold orange to realize N.HOOLYWOOD designer Daisuke Obana’s frequent military influences.

The warm, bright hue informs the entire case and strap, offset by a black frame around the case and matching clasp, with a grey sleeve at the tail end, Stylized jargon, like “N.H.TPES” at the face and “WATCH, WRIST, GENERAL PURPOSE” engraved on the rear, reinforces the utilitarian inspiration, driven home by the defiantly un-glamorous cardboard case the watch is packaged in. The box boasts the same mil-spec branding seen near the watch’s clasp, both adding another hit of visual interest and tying in with the motif.

N.HOOLYWOOD’s latest collaborative G-SHOCK timepiece is available in its Japanese stores and at stockists like LANTIKI.

 The Nike Air Ghost Racer has seen relative strides of revival throughout 2019, reinterpreting the ‘90s-era runner via eclectic new colorways such as the “Pink Blast” and “Racer Blue” versions. Now Nike has released another new iteration of the famed silhouette, honing in on the New York City Marathon for inspiration.

As one of the epicenters for running and home to the world-renowned event, the new Big Apple-inspired colorway has been doused in a base of Bright Crimson, with paneled interplay between Black, Orange Pulse, and Sail to flesh out the fruitful iteration. Most notably, the insole hones in on the sneaker’s theme by emblazoning an apple core logo with NYC’s skyline running through, finished off with the city’s “NYC” acronym printed above.

You can take a look at the Nike Air Ghost Racer “NYC Marathon” above.

 Nike‘s futuristic Presto React hybrid sneaker returns in a familiar “Lightning” graphic colorway. Last seen on the Nike Presto in 2015 as a Qs release, this lightning graphic actually has a history that dates back to the early 2000s as it first appeared on the “Trouble at Home” Nike Air Presto.

The updated iteration see the same graphic applied to the sock-like neoprene uppers, and features colorful hits of baby-blue and pink on the outsole and eyelets, respectively. The lace cage sees a mini Swoosh on the lateral side while the medial and heel feature nods to the orginal Nike Presto in the form of five dots and “Presto” typeface. Further details include translucent-grey React rubber sole pods and a red insole with a retro TV graphic.

Those interested can find these now over at 43einhalb and for a price of €129.95 EUR (approximately $140 USD).

 Thanks to Stadium Goods, we now have our best look yet at the forthcoming “University Red” colorway dressing the aforementioned sneaker. The collaborative silhouette sports a red and light grey upper, finished off with a contrasting white midsole and red outsole. Off-White™’s signature additions include the zip ties dressed in full white hanging off of the orange hiking-inspired lacing system, and orange accents featured on the lateral Swoosh insignias and tongue tab branding. Finally Off-White™’s boldface iconography is embellished on the medial sides.

Along with the “University Red” colorway, a “Pine Green” and Michigan-fitting “Gold/Navy” color scheme are also slated to drop this month each retailing at $170 USD per pair.

Head over to Stadium Goods to be notifed when the Off-White™ x Nike Dunk Low “University Red” drops.

 Queens’ skateboarding powerhouse Bronze 56K has come together with Reebok once more to rework the classic Club C Revenge sneaker in white and black.

For this year’s roster of Club C Revenge reworks, Bronze 56K looks to the iconic G-Unit G6 for inspiration and reintroduces a tri-color stripe to the white iteration. It continues the G-Unit homage with a suede toe box cap, a blue outsole and blue lining. For the black pair, Bronze 56K add green, white and purple stripes to the lateral-side suede toe cap, and continue this color scheme via the lining and tongue piping.

Both pairs feature OG Reebok branding — complete with the UK flag — on the sneaker’s lateral mid-panel window, a dual-branded tongue tab sporting Bronze 56K’s signature Windows 96-inspired logo, and contrast Bronze branding on the heel tab.

Take a look at the Bronze 56K x Reebok Club C Revenge in white and black in the gallery above, and pick up both pairs online via BSTN for €119.99 EUR (approx. $132 USD) on October 26.
