Sneaker press release updates August 14, 2021
As summer draws to a close, NIKE, Inc., adidas and New Balance have delivered official looks and teasers of solo and joint effort that will take them through to the end of the year.
Although Lebron James recently made headlines about his NBA2K22 rating and league standing, “Akron’s kid” made a splash in the sneaker world when he wore an all-black pair. Nike LeBron 19 for training. Elsewhere, the Swoosh took to social media when news of the return of the legendary Hello Kitty x Nike Air Presto, in addition to confirmation that the Nike Air Force 1 “Flax” branded “Supreme” would be launched as part of the ‘autumn winter. 2021 fundraiser. Nike SB and sacai also helped the North American brand grab headlines, with the latter tapping a roster of top Japanese players for seven Nike LDWaffle collaborations.
As usual, various silhouettes under the Air Jordan banner appeared in completely new and retro styles. Still, the unveiling of the Air Jordan 36 stood out, reminding that Michael Jordan’s iconic sneaker line is focused on basketball. “GOAT” son Marcus Jordan snuck into the news this week when he quoted Drake’s “Emotionless” on Instagram (because he doesn’t “run blogs) to tease the grand reopening of Trophy Room and a new Air Jordan collaboration to commemorate the moment. Unsurprisingly, much of the internet’s immediate reaction was bitter, expressing a lack of confidence due to the backdoor speculation that enveloped the latest Air. Jordan 1 from @ heirmj523.
The Three Stripes has been a staple in sporting goods for over 70 years. And while it constantly pays homage to its past through the adidas Originals imprint, the company is constantly thinking about the future. For this (and another) reason, it gave Kanye West the tools to build YEEZY, which has grown into a more than $ 1 billion operation. In the field of sport, however, the European institution has brought in promising young talents like Patrick Mahomes II, who recently became the new member of the brand to receive a signature shoe. Kerwin Frost, although he does not participate in any professional tests of strength and athletic ability, has carved out a place for himself in youth culture. As such, he brings his eccentric vision to the adidas Superstar.
Away from the German sportswear giant, New Balance and AAPE have teased a trio of the 703 model. While the New Balance 550 continues to be the brand’s darling, it’s possible that a prominent collaboration with the Japanese brand could be exactly what the much darker sneaker needs to win over audiences. Time will tell, however.
