Kicks Flow: Nike Air VaporMax Laceless

Some kicks you see are “first-day cop’s”. You know it when you see them, and there’s just nothing that’s going to change your mind about it. Nike has been on a roll lately with a nice amount of sneakers that fall right into this category, and the story isn’t stopping there. 

Nike’s new Air Vapormax Laceless is one of the dopest pair of kicks we’ve seen this year, so far. Esthetically, this is one of the better shoes to drop in awhile, but it doesn’t end with just looks. These are said to be one of he most comfortable shoes the brand has dropped in some time, as well. They also come with a blend of green, yellow, orange, red and more adorn the sneaker’s flyknit composition while the focal point is directed at the mid-foot which bears an elastic Swoosh-branded band to replace its traditional lacing system. 

Contrasted with black accents throughout, the VaporMax sole is also tinted to solidify its bold, yet sleek profile. All in all, this is a great shoe, and it should cost approximately $190USD. You’ll be able to pick these up at Nike and other select retailers worldwide, or wherever fly kicks are sold.

Kicks Flow: NikeLab x Loopwheeler - Indigo-Dyed Sock Dart & Air Force 1

One thing about unsung classic shoes that we love, is that they compliment iconic kicks so well. NikeLab has joined forces with Japanese fleece specialist Loopwheeler to create a special-edition Air Force 1 Ultraforce and Sock Dart, both featuring textile uppers made with loop wheel knitting machines. 

Moreover, the material is finished in hand-dyed indigo, requiring an inventive process that uses two layers of fabric, one featuring dark indigo-dyed cotton on the toe and midsole of the Air Force 1, and on the toe and vamp of the Sock Dart. The other is indigo-dyed heathered white cotton, seen on the quarter panel of the Air Force 1 and the heel and tongue of the Sock Dart. 

Both pairs are lined with heathered cotton for softness. Rounding out the details are a debossed Loopwheeler logo on the tongue loops of the Air Force 1 and Sock Dart. Both come with a cotton drawstring bag printed with Loopwheeler and Nike logos. 

Look for the kicks to be available July 16th at nike.com/nikelab and NikeLab MA5 in Tokyo, and Loopwheeler stores in Tokyo, Osaka and Fukuoka.

Some of the most slept-on brands are dropping a lot of very dope kicks this summer. One in particular, Saucony, has been dropping a ton of heat for awhile with not enough fanfare. Dubbed “Summer Nights,” the sneaker’s aesthetic is reflective of the colorful gradient of a mid summer evening sky, with tones of blue, purple, pink, orange and yellow creating a perfect representation of a summer sunset.
