Gundam x Nike SB Dunk High Banshee Coming Soon
While the Gundam x Nike SB Dunk High “Unicorn” is dropping in October, a closer look at the Gundam x Nike SB Dunk High “Banshee” is provided as the silhouette will be making its debut soon as well. Overall, this “Thunder Blue/Metallic Gold” colorway derives from the Japanese anime franchise Gundam, particularly from the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, a novel from the Gundam universe in celebration of its 15th anniversary. To further encapsulate the theme, the model bears a distinct logo printed on the heel, followed by geometric Swooshes that are interchangeable as a nod to its toy counterpart. Finally, the paneled aesthetic throughout the upper reflects the style of the Gundam suit to round out the design.
Retailing for $110, look for the Gundam x Nike SB Dunk High “Banshee” at select Nike stockists and online soon.

Bright Yellows Dress This Spring-Ready Nike Dunk High Up
Through both 2020 and 2021, we saw Nike completely transform their most beloved shoes — the Dunk being one of many. And as the brand embarks on yet another year, silhouettes like the Dunk High Up are not far behind, preparing a likely extensive ensemble of Spring-ready colorways.
Here, the Dunk High Up drops its muted olives and neutrals. Instead, a pastel yellow takes the overlays, imparting a bright, sunflower-esque feel to near every one of these fixtures. The laces and outsole, too, follow suit in the same hue, while the Swoosh — unlike its smaller, embroidered counterpart — goes the against the grain in its light grey. Elsewhere, whites complete the shoe along the midsole and much of the upper’s base.
Enjoy a close-up look at these below courtesy of official images. A release is sure to hit Nike.com and select retailers early 2022.

JO Pékin 2022 – Quand Nike et Columbia profitent du buzz médiatique généré par le look de Matt Hamilton (curling)
Aux Jeux Olympiques, le style peut parfois faire autant voir plus parler que vos performances sportives. A l’ère des réseaux sociaux, tout va très vite, comme la mise en lumière de Matt Hamilton.
Engagé dans la compétition de curling, l’américain est depuis quelques heures « la star » de Twitter. Mieux, de nombreux médias internationaux et français dont L’Equipe, Le Parisien, Eurosport, La Dépêche, RMC Sport… lui consacrent des articles. L’occasion de présenter plus en détail le joueur de curling le plus stylé des JO.
Une attention médiatique qui ravira à coup sûr le principal intéressé ainsi que les marques bien visibles à ses côtés.
Pour compléter son look moustache, cheveux long et tatouages, Matt Hamilton porte une casquette USA et une tenue fournies par la marque Columbia, partenaire de la fédération Curling USA.
A ses pieds, le champion olympique 2018 porte une paire de Nike multicolores qui ne passe pas inaperçue. Pour être précis, il s’agit du modèle SB Dunk Low What The Paul sorti en 2021. Une sneakers signature du skater Paul Rodriguez (P-Rod) qui intègre certains détails et coloris des modèles précédents. Une chaussure dont la semelle a été adaptée pour la pratique du curling par la société Project Blitz.
Reste à savoir si Nike parviendra à rebondir commercialement sur le buzz suscité ce jour par l’athlète et son look.
Sur son site officiel, Nike ne propose plus à la vente le modèle de sneakers multicolores. Une paire qui était déjà « collector » avant ces JO que l’on retrouve sur des sites de revente à des prix plus élevés que le prix de départ qui était de 110 euros.
First Look: Supreme x Nike Shox Ride 2
Another Supreme x Nike collaboration will be dropping this year. This time around the collaboration will include three different colorways of the Nike Shox Ride 2. The Nike Shox Ride 2 is a model that made its debut in the early 2000s. The sneaker is highlighted by its signature Shox cushioning columns found in the rear portion of sole unit.
Our first look at the Supreme x Nike Shox Ride 2 is brought to us by Supreme’s Spring/Summer 2022 lookbook. Coming in your choice of “White/Grey Fog-Flat Platinum”, “Neutral Olive/Electric Green-Pilgrim” and “Speed Red/Siren Red-Barn” (A Black pair is shown below though) each pair will come with Supreme branding on the aforementioned signature Shox cushioning columns, along with co-branded insoles (not shown).
Retailing for $190, look for the Supreme x Nike Shox Ride 2 collection to make its debut sometime during Spring of 2022 at select retailers and Nike SNKRS.
NIKE AIR FORCE 1 WITH REMOVABLE SWOOSH CARABINER IS A FASCINATING TWIST TO THE ICONIC SNEAKER
Nike Air Force 1 has been through numerous iterations in the last four decades. In 2022, as the sneaker which was first introduced in 1982 marks its 40th anniversary, we are bound to witness some innovative variants show up. Case in point the Louis Vuitton x Nike Air Force 1 by Virgil Abloh on auction via Sotheby’s. In the coming weeks, another interesting Air Force 1 Low is expected to launch with a removable Swoosh-shaped carabiner fastened over the rubber Swoosh on its lateral.
Air Force 1 was the first basketball shoe to debut the iconic Nike Air technology, which forever altered the on-court “sneaker culture.” Over the years, the AF1 has evolved from the basketball sneaker image into a fashion staple; it is modernized for street style, and now it wants to tinker into the outdoor trend with a pair featuring a detachable carabiner. The first images of the two expected colorways of the sneaker have appeared online, and the sultry images already have the sneakerhead in me enticed.
The interesting catch here, for an outdoorsy in you, is that the carabiner is of no more use than being used as a keychain hanging from a loop of your jeans. The metal EDC on the Swoosh is removable, but the labeling on it suggests, it can only bear a kg of weight (roughly 2 pounds). So, if you were thinking of strapping out a carabiner from your shoe and begin your excursion on a vertical rock, turn back! Now that the purpose of this metal accessory is out of the way, let’s get back to the sneaker.
The carabiner in the shape of Swoosh is affixed over the leather logo on the outside of the shoe. The Swoosh is smaller in size than you’d usually see on an AF1. To hold it in place, the Swoosh carabiner is attached seamlessly using a colored Bungee cord, while the tongue features a stash pocket. The new Air Force 1 is likely to arrive in black and white color variants with blue and matte red Swoosh carabiners and accents respectively. Nike is yet to provide an official release date for these sneakers, but from the word around the internet, we are expecting them to retail for about $130 a pair.
Deep “Brown Basalt” Gives The Next Nike Air Force 1 Luxe A Classy Look
Over its 40-year history, the Nike Air Force 1 has emerged in countless ensembles, with several of them going beyond a simply change in color palette. Iterations like its Luxe one have modified the original blueprint conjured up by Bruce Kilgore in 1982, giving the silhouette new style, functionality and more.
Recently, the Air Force 1 Luxe emerged in a classy look achieved by a predominantly “Brown Basalt” leather build. Perforation patterns on the toe box forgo their traditional layout in favor of a more ornate one, resembling those found on traditional wingtip shoes. Sole units underfoot also undergo notable changes, with the midsole donning an enlarged, layered arrangement clad in a semi-transparent light brown tone. Outsoles also boast their own modification, delivering a fashionable and functional update to the designed-for-basketball proposition.
Enjoy official images of the pair here below, and anticipate a Nike.com release soon. For more from the Swoosh family, check out the sacai Nike Cortez duo expected to drop come autumn and winter.
