Sneaker press release updates for June 26, 2021
The biggest players in the sneaker space continue to reach out to their base customers, often regional, but their companies have transcended language, culture and borders. While some have made conscious efforts to push certain products to markets outside their domain, others have simply reveled in the success cultivated organically by communities outside of their original field of concern.
NIKE, Inc. has been a great benefactor of this very phenomenon, with grips of Nike Air Max silhouettes becoming parts of youth uniforms in Italy, England and Australia. However, he also recognized opportunities, leading to partnerships valued by local cultures and global audiences. Case in point: the Quai 54 series, which recently unveiled an Air Jordan 35 Low, an Air Jordan 1 Low and an Air Jordan 5 decorated in both Parisian style and West African motifs. In addition, the North American conglomerate has acquired such a widespread presence and influence that it is almost by default part of large-scale conversations like those about the Olympics. With dozens of sponsored athletes competing for gold at the upcoming event in Tokyo, the Swoosh understands that rising up (and maybe stealing the show before the competition even begins) is crucial. . To this end, he collected many shoes and clothing commemorating the event held in Japan. Among the first, four Nike SB collaborations sparked a social media frenzy. The running and skateboarding shoes also appeared in a vibrant “Rawdacious” colourway designed specifically for the Summer Olympics, once again demonstrating that Nike got the mission.
Despite their commitment to innovation, brands like adidas and New Balance constantly dig through their archives for inspiration and products that deserve a second life. Proposals such as the original YEEZY BOOST 350 V2 and New Balance 990v2, are therefore presented to a new audience or to unconditional enthusiasts who demanded a reissue.
Design cues from older proposals also help inform newer ones, as is the case on Giannis Antetokounmpo’s Nike Zoom Freak 3. The Nike MetCon 7 is another example of an existing shoe updated for a new year, using existing technology in a new way. At the Three Stripes, the adidas 4DFWD did the same.
Until 2021, the words “Space Jam” would unmistakably be associated with the 1996 film starring Michael Jordan, but LeBron James added to the conversation via the movie “A New Legacy”. In honor of the film’s July 16 release, NIKE, Inc. prepared grips of commemorative sneakers – including the Air Force 1, Converse Chuck 70, and LeBron 18 Low – featuring members of the Tune Squad as well as a animated version of “Akron’s Child. The Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam” is unlikely to be retro in honor of the new film, but its influence on the rollout of the next film is undeniable.
