Kicks Flow: Nike’s Air Max 1 Ultra 2.0 Flyknit “Ocean Fog”

Lots of rain and grayness in the weather forecast this week, so we have something today that kind of fits the mood. Well, at least color-wise. Our good friends over at the Swoosh are officially unveiling a brand-new colorway of another updated classic in the Air Max 1 Ultra 2.0 Flyknit. Done up in a clean shade of overarching “ocean fog,” the upper features a construction made up of Flyknit and what appears to be Hyperfuse around the mudguard and toebox.

Being a “Ultra” version of the silhouette, the midsole does feature upgraded technology for extended comfort, which is a pleasant mix alongside the roomy knit upper. The Air Max 1 Ultra 2.0 Flyknit “Ocean Fog” is now available at retailers like Titolo for a retail price of $199 USD. Run over and cop a quick pair for yourself. 



Top Shelf: ‘Magnum P.I.’ 1984 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole up for Auction

If you’re old enough to remember the classic shows of the 80’s, you know we had some pretty cool iconic things happening back then. The 1984 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole that Tom Selleck drove during season four of 1980s hit TV show Magnum P.I. will be going up for auction today.

The famed vehicle, which is reported to have had just two owners, boasts a V8 engine that turns out 233 horsepower and five-speed manual transmission.
After appearing on Magnum P.I., the Ferrari was repossessed by Ferrari North America, who then serviced and painted the automobile, before selling it to its first owner.

Upon being sold again in 1989, the car now has just 36,000 miles and is said to be in pristine condition. For more details on the 1984 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole that Tom Selleck drove on Magnum P.I., follow on over to Bonhams’ auction page, ahead of the auction later on today.



Kicks Flow: Nike Flyknit Racer "Oreo" 2.0

We have so many favorites, but some of them clearly stand above the rest. And we wouldn't be ourselves if we didn’t spotlight them every now and then on the blog. We know you want the freshest updates on what’s out there and what’s coming, so we have to stay on point in making sure we get that to you guys. 

The ever-popular Nike Flyknit Racer, which we love dearly, is making a return next month in the form of the “Oreo 2.0.” The resurgence of the Flyknit Racer seems to continue on, following the unveiling of the all-white iteration in December.

Designed with insight from the world’s best marathon runners, the silhouette features a seamless knit upper that the Flyknit has come to be known for, adding breathability and targeted support. It’s likely that the Flyknit Racer “Oreo 2.0” will be a hit among runners and collectors alike for its lightness and monotone colorway.

The Nike Flyknit Racer “Oreo 2.0” will be released on February 10th. There’s no current information on the price of the shoe but with the “White/Sail” retailing for $150, it’s likely the price mark will be around that region. Make sure to pick these up when they drop. They tend to vanish quickly. 




Kicks Flow: Nike Air Presto "White"

We’re still in the middle of a pretty nasty and cold winter, but that doesn’t mean that we have to refrain from getting fresh, when it comes to our kicks. The term “clean up nicely” speaks to someone going from casual to more formal wear effortlessly, but also impressively. One of our favorite shoes has done the same recently, and we think it deserves some shine for being so clean. 

The Nike Air Presto is now available in a white-on-white flavor, that’s just too awesome to not buy on sight. With sleet and grit still a prominent presence on the streets, it’s probably best keeping these sneakers on ice until drier climates abound. A Phylon midsole and Air-Sole heel unit are incorporated for lightweight cushioning, with a molded midfoot cage offering the wearer additional support. 

For a lightweight feel, the upper is comprised entirely of stretch, making it the perfect shoe for both leisure and performance.



Kicks Flow: Nike Flyknit Racer "Wolf Grey"

We’re less than a week into the new year, and we’ve already been hit with a ton of new kicks that we have to stash a little money away for. It’s not easy to save when so much freshness is being dropped at this pace. It looks like it’ll be a wild year for sneakerheads. That’s for sure. Since its introduction in 2012, the Nike Flyknit Racer has maintained a steady level of popularity that's seen the silhouette successfully transition from the performance running category to the lifestyle space. 

Typically, the shoe features a Flyknit upper mounted atop a two-tone midsole, in which the topline is finished in black, the bottom half in a crisp, white shade. This upcoming colorway strays from the usual aesthetic, adding a pop of red to the midsole that plays off nicely against the Wolf Grey upper. These are expected to drop on March 10th, so mark that down on your calendars. Don't let these get away from you. 



Kicks Flow: Nike Air Presto "Oatmeal"

A couple of summers ago, we saw the return of some of our favorite iconic shoes from Nike, return to their past glory. Since then, several of them have released in tons of different flavors and styles and have really resurrected their freshness. One of such, is the Nike Air Presto. Always a great shoe, but never touted enough, in our opinion. It was such a unique sneaker back when it initially dropped in 2000. Maybe it was a little too ahead of its time. Whatever the case, it’s great to see it getting so much love now. 

Biz Markie once said, “Damn, it feels good to see people up on it.” And that’s exactly how we feel about the Presto these days. It’s now sitting as one of Nike’s most popular current silhouettes. For Spring 2017 the Nike Air Presto Premium returns in a beautiful “oatmeal” colorway. Featuring a stretch leather upper, the sneaker is fully tonal, carrying the beige color over to the piping and outer sole of the sneaker. You can pick up the sneaker now from Titolo. We suggest you make it there soon before these sell out. 

Purposefully Fresh
