The new Nike Pegasus 41 and its technological innovations.

  • Posted By : Charly
Nike Pegasus offers us a Pegasus 41 at the cutting edge of its running technology and footwear innovations.
When it comes to Nike running shoes, the Pegasus range, which began in 1983, is a staple that has stood the test of time.
Improved with time and feedback from athletes, Nike Pegasus have always stood out for their durability and reliability.
With this new version, Nike has added 3 major innovations to boost runners' performance even further.

Firstly, and for the first time, the pair includes a full-length ReactX foam midsole that increases the shoe's resistance and durability.
The second new feature is Zoom technology in the forefoot and heel, with 2 Air Zoom units complementing the ReactX insoles for ideal cushioning and foot adaptation.
Finally, the Niike Pegasus 41 incorporates a new midfoot system called ‘Dynamic Fit’.
This system is directly linked to the shoe's lacing to improve the foot's envelope, support and comfort.
Finally, the woven mesh upper has been redesigned to be more breathable and comfortable than ever.

The Nike Pegasus 41 is released in its first ‘Volt’ colourway on 5 June 2024 for Men and Women.
They are available now at a retail price of €139.99/£139.99/$140.

Arc'teryx: Evolution from Outdoor Innovator to Global Lifestyle Brand

Arc'teryx: Evolution from Outdoor Innovator to Global Lifestyle Brand

  • Posted By : Hatim

Foundational Beginnings and Visionary Growth

In 1989, Arc'teryx was founded in North Vancouver, Canada, with a mission to create the most innovative and highest quality climbing gear. Named after the Archaeopteryx Lithographica, a symbol of evolutionary progress, the brand quickly became synonymous with pioneering outdoor equipment. Its commitment to excellence in design, performance, and reliability set the stage for a journey that would transform Arc'teryx from a specialized outdoor gear manufacturer into a global lifestyle brand.

Strategic Leadership and Global Expansion

The brand's trajectory took a pivotal turn with the involvement of key figures like Tyler Jordan, who, starting in 1993, contributed to its ascent in the outdoor industry and beyond. Under his leadership, Arc'teryx navigated through acquisitions by Adidas-Salomon and Amer Sports, significantly broadening its product offerings and market reach. The acquisition by Anta Sports in 2019 marked a new era of autonomy and innovation, focusing on direct-to-consumer sales and expanding the brand's global footprint.

Fashion Integration and Market Adaptation

Arc'teryx's foray into the fashion realm demonstrated its versatility and appeal beyond the outdoor community. By engaging with the gorpcore trend and introducing lines such as Veilance, the brand successfully married technical functionality with minimalist, luxury aesthetics. This evolution reflected a broader industry trend where functional outdoor gear increasingly became a staple in fashion and everyday wear, appealing to a diverse consumer base from hardcore adventurers to style-conscious urbanites.

Iconic Products in Fashion and Sneaker Communities

Among the brand's offerings, certain products have stood out for their popularity in the fashion and sneaker communities. The Norvan LD 3 shoes, known for their rapid sell-out online, blend high-performance features with a design that appeals to a wide consumer base.

Similarly, the Atom jacket and hoodie, alongside the highly coveted Beta LT high neck hooded shell jacket, have become staples in the wardrobes of those seeking functionality without sacrificing style.

Arcteryx Jackets

These products exemplify Arc'teryx's ability to innovate and resonate within the fashion-forward market, highlighting its role as a leader in merging technical outdoor gear with contemporary fashion sensibilities.

Innovative Retail Strategy in Asia

Asia Museum

Arc'teryx's strategic expansion into the Asian market, particularly with the opening of the world's largest eco-experience flagship store, the Arc'teryx Museum in Shanghai, underscores the brand's innovative approach to retail. This initiative caters to China's growing outdoor sports craze, reinforced by creative marketing campaigns and engagement with local communities. Such efforts have not only bolstered the brand's presence in Asia but also tapped into a lucrative market, driving significant revenue growth and expanding its consumer base.

Future Outlook and Continued Evolution

As Arc'teryx looks to the future, its continuous adaptation to market trends, dedication to sustainability, and commitment to innovation position the brand for ongoing success. With plans to capitalize on emerging opportunities, particularly in the wake of increased interest in outdoor and leisure activities, Arc'teryx is poised to maintain its status as a global lifestyle brand that seamlessly blends performance, style, and innovation.


Arc'teryx's journey from a humble beginning in North Vancouver to a global powerhouse in both outdoor gear and lifestyle fashion is a testament to its visionary leadership, relentless innovation, and adaptability. By staying true to its roots while embracing change, Arc'teryx continues to set trends and exceed expectations, ensuring its place as a beloved brand among outdoor enthusiasts and fashion-savvy consumers alike.

Review of the Naruto Shippuden x Asics Gel-NYC - Detailed & on feet look

Review of the Naruto Shippuden x Asics Gel-NYC - Detailed & on feet look

  • Posted By : Charly
The worlds of manga and sneakers connect once again thanks to Asics and the Naruto Shippuden franchise.
Calling once again on Sébastien Abdelhamid, TV host and sneaker, manga & video game enthusiast, the Japanese brand offers us a 2nd collaboration on one of the most popular manga of recent years.
After a collaboration in 2022 on the GEL-1130 and GEL-Lyte 3 models featuring the characters: Itachi, Sasuke & Kakashi, the duo have opted for a model of the moment: the Asics Gel-NYC.
As for the theme of this new partnership, this time Sébastien chose the hero himself, Naruto.
Keen to share a story through his design, he puts forward the story of the famous ninja, who conveys universal values such as friendship, courage and self-sacrifice.

The pair's look is directly inspired by the Manga's Arc Pain and Naruto's hermit mode. It features a black ripstop upper with red leather and black suede overlays.
The Asics logo on the side is outlined in silver with orange contours. The design is directly inspired by Naruto's pants and cape.
Then the lacelock is directly inspired by the scroll carried by the character, the flames visible on the heel echoe those on the bottom of his cape, and the Konoha plate adds a jewel-like touch to the laces if wanted.

In terms of well-known manga logos, the Uzumaki logo appears on the tongue of the right foot, while a Kyubi claw (the famous nine-tailed fox) is featured on the left heel at the back.
This special edition of course includes a special box and a sole branded with the name of the franchise.
As if that weren't enough, Asics and Sébastien have also included a small bag of accessories as a bonus, with stick-on patches and a mini pouch for fans of the Japanese manga.

In terms of sizing, the Asics Gel-NYC is generally true to size. It can fit a little small for some people. I can personally wear my regular size or half size up, both are fine.
Like most Asics, this pair is very comfortable thanks to Gel technology & the brand's running expertise.

The Naruto Shippuden x Asics Gel-NYC - Courir Exclusive released early during Paris Games Week (Limited stock). Then the pair was available on December 9th & 10th at special popup store in Paris.
The official drop happened online on Courir only on Monday December 11th at a retail price of 170€.
It dropped one week later in selected physical Courir stores.
This edition is also confirmed to drop on the Asics webstore in Europe & the UK.
A US drop was also confirmed by Sébastien Abdelhamid himself. Stay tuned for more info.

Top 10 Sneaker Pickups 2023 by More Sneakers

  • Posted By : Charly
Better late than never. Here are our Top 10 Sneaker Pickups for this year 2023 in no particular order of preference.
Once again, this is a Top of the pairs we've bought and have in hands.
This seems more relevant to us than a ranking of all the releases, simply because it's still difficult to talk about pairs we've never had in our hands.

Air Jordan 11 Retro 'Gratitude'

Originally released in 2006 in the famous DMP 6/11 pack, the black and white Air Jordan 11 with gold accents had never been released since.
Those who missed the pack back then (like me), were able to get their hands on the Air Jordan 6 DMP in 2020. Here we are 3 years later, 17 years after its first appearance, and Jordan Brand is finally reissuing it.
As you'd expect - Nike never does the same thing twice - this reissue includes a modification to the upper, replacing the usual carbon fiber with leather.
Needless to say, the pair was eagerly awaited, and the number of AJ11 releases in the year is still very, very low. A must-have for any Jordan Brand collector.

Nike Air More Uptempo Low ‘Black White’

Not usually a fan of the low-profile versions of Bastekball models, I was myself very surprised by this silhouette revisited by a fashion specialist.
It was Yoon Ahn, fashion designer and creative director of Japan-based brand Ambush, who put his stamp on this pair with the distinctive 'AIR' on the side. 
This low-profile version with an inflated look admirably transforms the B-ball model into a street-fashion piece in tune with the times: a thick, inflated skateboard-style tongue, rope laces with exaggerated diameters and a reminder of the heel.
Finally, a slightly shiny leather finish applied to the graffiti-style 'AIR' logo. Super fans of Nike Air More Uptempo in general, this modern version is a must-have for me this year.

J Balvin x Air Jordan 3 Retro SP 'Medellín Sunset'

After a very mixed second edition of the AJ2, the collaboration between Jordan Brand and the famous singer had not said its last word.
Back with an Air Jordan 3 this year, this ultimately very limited edition was very anticipated by the community. Excellent storytelling and incredible detailing applied to the AJ3's silhouette make it a no-brainer heat of 2023. 
Sunset-style color gradient on the back of the pair, Smiley J Balvin logo on the heel and an upper also in the sun theme.
Not to mention a special box with special paper inside.

Nike SB x Air Jordan 4 Retro SP 'Pine Green'

Far from being the 1st collaboration between Nike's Skateboarding and Basketball departments, this is the first time in 2023 that the 2 entities have worked together on an Air Jordan 4.
Certainly the most hype Jordan silhouette of recent years, this release was again very anticipated by the sneaker community.
And Nike didn't do things by halves: Nike SB and Jordan thoroughly reworked the AJ4's design to make it suitable for advanced skateboarding: the 89 shape on the toebox, a more flexible upper, softer plastic details and a gum outsole are the model's most notable updates.
Add to this a cool colorway with good colorblocking. The pair goes straight into the top 10.

New Balance 9060 'Multi-Color'

A release you're unlikely to see in other rankings, and yet the New Balance 9060 is one of the trendiest silhouettes since 2022.
There weren't many collaborations on this model this year, but there were a few limited editions that made their presence felt: the DTLR collab & the Grey Day edition are certainly my favorites.
This daring multi-color edition shows off the pair's potential very well, with multiple yokes and a subtle play on materials.
A flashy pink and red sole, an upper mixing leather, mesh & suede in turquoise tones warmed up by orange and red details. Black pieces add contrast, as does a purple lining at the top.
A perfect color for sunny days on a futuristic silhouette of the moment. We regret, however, that this year's retail price (€190) has risen by €20 to €30.

Asics Gel-Kayano 14 'Cream Black'

The Japanese brand has finally returned to the forefront in 2023 with the number 14 in its Gel-Kayano line.
Since its relaunch in 2020 with an updated retro lifestyle version, the Asics Gel-Kayano 14 has been the talk of the sneaker community. 
With a very running DNA, metal parts and a mesh base for breathable feet, the Asics Gel-Kayano 14 has found its place as an everyday pair.
Collaborations with Kiko Kostadinov, JJJJound & Kith have helped, of course, but the model itself and its success testify to the search for alternative products to what we've seen in recent years.
This Cream Black color was quickly sold out in most retailers.
Good comfort, a cream base with silver and black overlays make this a simple, effective pair to wear without moderation for a retail price of €160.

New Balance 1906D Protection Pack 'Black Leather'

No need to introduce the Protection Pack series from New Balance.
After the highly successful 2002R, the brand has applied this deconstructed treatment to the 1906 for the 2nd time.
This time, the split inserts are in leather, and the model is available in black and white. This 'Black Leather' edition sold very well, even if it didn't sell out on the day.
An excellent rendering in my opinion, better than the 4-pack of the first drop. The leather adds a touch of luxury and dressiness that certainly appealed to fans of the brand.
An all-black pair that's easy to wear every day, with solid comfort. This pair is one of my personal beaters of 2023.

F.C. Barcelona x Patta x Nike Air Max Plus 'Culers del Món'

The number of Nike Air Max Plus releases this year has been incredible. It's a silhouette that can't be ignored in 2023. I surprised myself by buying several.
This limited edition with Dutch boutique Patta and Barcelona Football Club stands out in my eyes.
A double swoosh on the side, the model's famous gradient using the team's colors, details such as the P of Patta on the front, the club crest on the lace system and two-tone laces.
Last but not least, the associated clothing collection was well crafted, as usual from the Dutch retailer. A pair that belongs in the top 10.

Terror Squad x Nike Air Force 1 'Blackout'

A pair that has been the talk of the networks, and promoted directly by its initiator Fat Joe. As it’s often the case with the Swoosh brand, the pair conveys a strong story.
It has embodied the influences between the worlds of sport and hip-hop for decades.
Not to mention the fact that the pair is the result of an exclusive Friends & Family release for the New York rapper's group, and that it resurfaces 20 years later with great nostalgia.
Simple, effective color blocking on this black and white limited edition. High-quality leather has a classic AF1 look with Terror Squad's signature embroidered details on the back.
A must-have for fans of this timeless silhouette.

Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG University Blue 'UNC Toe'

The Air Jordan 1 High OG has lost some of its hype since 2022, yet Jordan Brand hasn't exactly slowed down the releases, and has still provided us with colorways that would have been all the rage in another era.
This is certainly true of the Air Jordan 1 High OG 'UNC Toe'. Once again paying tribute to the North Carolina roots of Michael Jordan and his famous university, this non-OG edition remains a must-have for collectors of the brand.
A full leather pair with 'Bred Toe'-style color blocking, here replaced by the sky-blue color much appreciated by fans of the basketball player, the rendering does not disappoint. Of course, we regret the retail price, which has risen to 190€/174.95$/180£ for this release.
We'll say we made up for it on the other colors on sale.

adidas x Fear of God Athletics - The Highly Anticipated Launch Revealed

adidas x Fear of God Athletics - The Highly Anticipated Launch Revealed

  • Posted By : Hatim
After much anticipation and a trail of rumors and leaks, the adidas Fear of God Athletics collection is finally making its debut, marking a significant moment in the collaboration between Jerry Lorenzo and adidas.
This launch comes as a surprise to many, as the actual collection differs notably from the early samples and leaks that had previously circulated.

The Genesis of Fear of God Athletics

Founded by Jerry Lorenzo, Fear of God has established itself as a powerhouse in American fashion. The collaboration with adidas, announced at the end of 2020, marks the launch of Fear of God Athletics, an activewear brand that Lorenzo has been nurturing for years. Initially, Lorenzo had pitched the idea to Nike, leading to the creation of the Nike Air Fear of God 1 in late 2018. However, after a series of discussions and a sudden drop by Nike, Lorenzo reached out to adidas, paving the way for this new venture.

The Collection's Vision

Fear of God Athletics stands out for its commitment to pure performance wear, distinct from the lifestyle-centric collaborations often seen in the fashion industry. This collection is not about hype or collaborations but focuses on gear meant for actual sports. Lorenzo's vision for the brand is deeply rooted in his sports background and his desire to create performance wear that transcends the court.
Fear Of God adidas 2023

The Design Philosophy

The collection, engineered by adidas, showcases Lorenzo's minimalist design philosophy, blending simplicity with high performance. The campaign, shot by Nadav Kander, reveals pieces that embody both the spirit of Fear of God and the technical prowess of adidas. The design language draws inspiration from late-nineties and early-aughts football gear, particularly the Adidas Predator cleats worn by David Beckham.

The Unexpected Journey

Lorenzo's journey to this launch has been filled with challenges and unexpected turns. From the initial rejection by Nike to exploring partnerships with other brands, and finally finding a home with adidas, this collaboration is a testament to his resilience and vision. The collection's launch is not just about introducing new products but also about the realization of a dream that Lorenzo has been nurturing for years.

Looking Ahead

The adidas Fear of God Athletics collection is set to be a game-changer in the performance wear market. With plans to sponsor youth teams and a focus on creating designs that are both functional and stylish, Lorenzo aims to redefine the landscape of sports fashion. The collection is expected to evolve further, with Lorenzo promising that by the second half of 2024, it will fully embody his vision of performance wear that is light, playable, and transcends beyond the sports arena.

Impossible to buy Fear Of God Essentials in Europe

  • Posted By : Hatim

Who is Fear Of God and what happened in European market

Fear of God is the well know American company by Jerry Lorenzo that launched a sub-brand called "Fear of God Essentials" in 2018. The brand's products are sold worldwide and can be found at select retailers such as SSENSE, Mr Porter UK and US or END UK and US. In addition to its online store, FOG also produces seasonal capsule collections with the help of co-designers such as Kanye West and Takashi Murakami.
In Europe, we have Kadine BV which owns the fashion brand 'Essentiel Antwerp', which has been active since 2011. Kadine BV brought a cease-and-desist action against FOG before the EU Trademark Court in Brussels for copyright infringement of their brand name 'Essential' due to similarities between both marks' shapes, colors and fonts used on packaging labels.

Why Fear Of God Essentials can't sell its products in Europe

The EU Trademark Court in Brussels found that FOG's distributor was selling goods with the "FOG" mark without permission, and ordered them to stop immediately. The court dismissed claims against FOG for lack of evidence. Following this decision, FOG launched a new collection of 'Essentials' clothing, but the court found that FOG's use of this sign was likely to cause confusion with Kadine's earlier trademark for 'F**K OFF GIRL', and ordered FOG to stop using the "ESSENTIALS" trademark for clothing items sold online. FOG appealed but the court upheld the injunction. FOG made some adjustments on its website but the court found them insufficient. A recent case clarified that a mere offer to sell goods on an online platform does not constitute infringement. Kadine produced correspondence showing that FOG controlled the sale of 'Essentials' clothing in the Benelux and EU. 
As a result, FOG has been prohibited from selling its products in Europe, which has had a major impact on the brand. 
After that, during a short period customers in Europe were able to purchase from resellers such as StockX and US official retailers like (PacSun or SSENSE...) but now you only have the US retailers, when trying to checkout on StockX you will be stopped.

Edit : UK retailers such as Mr PorterEND and Selfridges are selling FOG Essentials items but they won't ship to European customers.
Edit from 30/11/2023 : Mr Porter is selling worldwide, here some links by countries/regions : FranceGermanyNetherlandsSpainItalyBelgiumAPAC region.

Now you know why you can't find this so famous US brand in Europe.

Review of the AMBUSH x Nike Air More Uptempo Low Black White - Detailed & on feet look

  • Posted By : Charly

After a successful first edition, the low-profile version of the famous Nike Air More Uptempo is back in an OG 'Black White' colorway perfect for the seasons to come.
The first colorway, 'Limestone Vivid Sulphur', had already been very successful, despite a color palette that wasn't necessarily easy for everyone to wear.

We owe this new silhouette to Yoon Ahn, fashion designer and creative director of Japan-based Ambush.
In collaboration with her brand, she reinvents the iconic basketball model to pay homage to the rebellious skate shoes of the 2000s.
A low-profile version with an inflated look admirably transforms the B-ball model into a street-fashion piece in tune with the times.
A thick, inflated skateboard-style tongue, rope laces with exaggerated diameters and a reminder of the heel.


This second round features a high-end black leather upper with the graffiti-style 'AIR' logo on the inner and outer sides of the pair.
White outlines and branding elements contrast the pair. The heel features double branding to celebrate the collaboration and finalize the design.

How does the Nike Air More Uptempo Low fit in terms of sizing ?
They are true to size, so we recommend you order your regular Nike size for these.

In terms of comfort, Scottie Pippen's famous full-length air bubble, combined with the thickened tongue, offers optimal cushioning and feel.

A new edition that's sure to stay on the shelves, even if its price (214.99 | £194.95 | $190) is higher than the usual releases.
Original colorway, easy to wear for an everyday use, the AMBUSH x Nike Air More Uptempo Low Black White is almost gone online by now.

How is the sneaker market doing in 2023 - 10 signs of a recession
27 October 2023

How is the sneaker market doing in 2023 - 10 signs of a recession

  • Posted By : Charly

How is the sneaker market doing in 2023 ? We've broken down 10 signs of a recession in the sneaker industry.
From less demand, to the fall of certain communities, to an analysis of evening sneaker releases, check our full view on this topic.

1 - Lower floor prices for hype products

Quite a few hype pairs have seen their prices plummet over the past 2 years.
Recent inflation and the global economic context have meant that everyone is closer to their money.
Less demand for sneakers and other collectibles has mechanically lowered the floor prices of items on resale platforms.
This is the case, for example, with Supreme logo boxes and many Air Jordan 1 High OGs.

2 - The famous Supreme Streetwear brand in retreat

Supreme drops attract much less attention and most items remain in stock.
Remember those days when everyone was waiting to hear about the week's Supreme drops and 80% of the stock was sold out within minutes?
Photo montages of confirmed items with speculation on the most coveted items.
All this is much rarer these days, and most items remain in stock long after drop day.

3 - The era of sneaker bots seems over

A few years ago, bots were seen by many as a real curse for the sneaker market.
Releases sold out instantly, raffles with thousands of entries per person, and so on.
Many bots had been developed by solid teams and were (re)selling at a high price. In today's context, bots haven't disappeared, but they're much less talked about.
What's the point of paying for a bot and all the setup that goes with it if you can buy your pair at noon in the morning or with +20€ on Stockx or Goat ?

4 - The season of Cookgroups and success showoffs is over.

Often paired with bots, Cookgroups - those famous private Discord groups with monitors giving alerts on the availability of the most requested items - are becoming increasingly rare.
Fewer requests for most hype products has made the business model for these groups much less relevant. Weekly screenshots of Success across the twitter timeline are less and less topical.
Some have diversified, notably into Web3 with NFTs, or into collectibles in general, such as pokemon cards, luxury items and so on.

5 - Fewer and fewer sneaker releases in the form of Raffles

You've probably noticed. The widespread use of Raffle releases is in full reverse, given the current market.
Signing up for 5 Raffles and winning the same pair 5 times isn't necessarily what customers want (unless their resale value is high, in which case they rarely win).
We're back to good old-fashioned first-come, first-served. Luck is out of the equation. Some retailers still leave raffles until the day before the release and end up converting them to FCFS at the last minute.
Certainly due to a lack of input…

6 - More and more early drops.

Since COVID-19, the sneaker release calendar has become chaotic. Release dates have become more and more random and irregular, with sometimes very large time gaps for the same pair.
As a result, we're seeing more and more early releases these days, where before, brand-imposed embargoes were meticulously respected by retailers.
Midnight drops have also resurfaced, versus the usual 9AM drop established years ago.

7 - Most sneaker releases can be easily purchased online.

Just a few years ago, the sneaker market had become so tight that no one could guarantee a W before a pair was released.
Shops faced with the gigantic demand for hype releases all ended up implementing the raffle system, which was designed both to create a fair process for sneaker fans, and to combat online robots and crowds in front of stores.
Since 2022, the market has eased considerably, and collectors and the general public alike are much more confident about their chances of getting a pair at retail price with just a few clicks.
But are sneaker customers that much happier? Not necessarily: less demand, less hype, pairs remain on the shelves.
We want what we can't have. Having a pair that's still available everywhere and that everyone can buy is much less attractive than getting a rare pair that you can't find everywhere.
In fact, this is one of the marketing approaches most often used by major brands.

8 - A growing number of promo codes

With demand for sneakers falling, it's becoming harder for boutiques to clear their stock easily.
In addition to the big annual sales periods, more and more boutiques are resorting to more occasional and shorter promotions with a coupon code.
These tend to be flash promotions, lasting only a few days or a few hours at a time, in an attempt to create a buying frenzy among consumers.
This remains a good option for pairs in moderate demand that don't sell out completely at retail price, but which go on sale fairly quickly.

9 - Pairs don't move as fast as they used to

Many previously highly coveted models are now sitting on the shelves without finding a buyer at full price.
Air Jordan 1 HighAir Jordan 1 MidNike DunkYeezy 350 V2 - silhouettes that hardly ever made it to the sales have ended up there.
Is this really the result of a recession? No, it's not. Many factors are at play: models flooded in quantity by brands, prices on the rise, colors running out of steam and too many boxes piling up with collectors.
So many reasons that have led us straight into a new cycle.

10 - Sales on increasingly interesting items

When demand was at its peak, sneaker fans emptied entire stocks of sneakers in a matter of seconds or hours. This short-circuited the commercial life cycle of many models, which never made it to the sale.
Now that the market has slowed down, more and more formerly hype products are making their appearance in the Sale sections of online stores.
Air Jordan 1 HighMid or Low and Nike Dunks Low spring to mind. At adidas, various Yeezy models were no exception, ending up at reduced prices.
Other collaborations, such as those with Pharrell Williams or Bape, are also in this category. As for New Balance, the Protection pack is also showing its under-retail stocks, accompanied by well-functioning models such as the 550 or 9060.
No brand is spared. To the great pleasure of our wallets, this allows everyone to spend less on sneakers by waiting a little, especially when we know the inflation and the rise in retail prices these days.

All these signs and more show that we have reached the end of a cycle. For almost 10 years, the market has continued to grow in tandem with the explosion of social networking. A whole generation has amassed vast quantities of sneakers, only to slow down or move on.
Do we need a new generation of consumers to get the market moving again? Certainly, but it will happen slowly and with many other associated factors.
In any case, stay tuned to for the latest news on the sneaker market.

The Nike Swoosh 1 - The new silhouette for baby walkers approved by the medical profession

  • Posted By : Charly
Ever-expanding its sneaker catalog, Nike recently released a brand-new silhouette dedicated to the smallest members of the family, the Nike Swoosh 1.
Always at the forefront of footwear research, development and innovation, Nike's new model is designed to help little athletes take their first steps.
This important, emotional and sometimes stressful stage in a child's life, as well as in that of his or her parents, has often been the subject of controversy, particularly when it comes to what is put on their toes.

What are the pediatric recommendations for children's and babies' sneakers?

When looking for a pair of shoes for toddlers, pediatricians first recommend an ultra-flexible sole. It should be easy to bend and twist.
The baby's foot should be able to move as much as possible, so that all the intrinsic muscles and those moving from the foot to the leg have plenty of opportunity to move, be used and strengthened.
These motor patterns can then strengthen themselves rather than relying on external support.

Another very important point is the width of the toe. Many specialists claim that sneakers are not ideal for the development of toes, as we are not able to move them properly and the shape is not always natural for everyone's feet.
Indeed, pediatricians also recommend a pair that has room for the toes to extend when the child takes a step.
The idea, once again, is to let the muscles engage and support the foot from the inside out.

The adjustable closure is also an interesting feature, as every child's foot is different and we want the shoe to fit the foot snugly.
This prevents the child from slipping or shifting as he learns his new motor pattern. We're looking for motor skills as close as possible to the barefoot experience.
We don't want children grabbing with their feet to try to keep their shoe in place.
Finally, a solid heel is often recommended. Not too stiff, but one that helps the shoe stay on the foot a little better instead of slipping.

What are the features of the Nike Swoosh 1 ?

The Nike Swoosh 1 features a seamless Flyknit upper offering 360 degrees of flexible support for the child's foot. The shoe is easily bendable in all directions, offering maximum mobility to budding walkers and mimicking the feeling of walking barefoot.
The toe box has been designed to be wide enough to leave room for the front of the foot too. Last but not least, a lightweight TPU outsole provides the grip needed for those first hesitant steps, while also ensuring the shoe's durability.

A pair validated by a professional medical organization

The Nike Swoosh 1 was a project in its own right, aimed at facilitating and solving parents' need to equip their babies for their first steps. The brand naturally studied children's needs, behavior and movements and drew inspiration from them before innovating in this dedicated research.
This new silhouette adds to Nike's know-how, which has already rolled out numerous projects of the same kind, such as the 'Flyease''Go', or 'EasyOn' sneakers.
However, Nike is now taking things a step further, as the Nike Swoosh 1 is the first Nike Kids shoe to receive the Seal of Acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association, a professional medical organization representing doctors of podiatric medicine in the United States.
On paper, the Nike Swoosh 1 seems to tick most of the boxes recommended by the pediatric sector. To be confirmed in practice on the feet of your little ones.

Where to buy the Nike Swoosh 1 and at what price ?

The Nike Swoosh 1 has been available since November 1 at a price of €59.99/£44.95/$62 worldwide.
It was released in a first 'Siren Red Game Royal' colorway in sizes 18.5 EU to 23.5 EU (3C to 7C in US sizes).
This color was an immediate success, being sold out in Europe, the UK and the USA.
Two other colors have just been released in Europe and the UK (coming soon for the US).

  • Posted By : Hatim
Nike has recently introduced the Air Max Pulse, the latest addition to its Air Max family. The Air Max Pulse combines modern design with the brand's iconic Air technology to deliver unmatched comfort and style.
It draws inspiration from the brutalist architecture and urban landscape of London and the vibrant music scene in the city. As part of the launch campaign, London musicians Nia Archives and Jeshi embody the spirit of the Air Max Pulse.

The Air Max Pulse utilizes the same Air unit as the Air Max 270, but with a targeted weight distribution for better rebound and responsiveness. This technology ensures that the shoe provides the wearer with maximum comfort throughout the day, making it ideal for both daytime and nighttime wear. Its durability is another feature that sets it apart from other sneakers on the market.

Air Max technology has been an essential part of sneaker culture since the launch of the first Air Max sneaker in 1987. The idea behind Air Max was to provide runners with a comfortable, cushioned shoe that would minimize the impact of running on the body.
Over the years, Nike has continued to evolve the Air Max technology, releasing new silhouettes based on the Air technology every year.

Nike has always been known for its storytelling, and the Air Max Pulse is no exception. The shoe takes inspiration from the brutalist architecture and urban landscape of London, a city that has played a significant role in the history of sneaker culture.

The Air Max Pulse features a sleek and bold silhouette, with contrasting textures and multiple Swoosh logos. The upper features reflective 3M accents, while the new Air Max branding appears on the tongue and insole.

In conclusion, Nike's Air Max Pulse is the latest addition to the Air Max family. Its combination of modern design and Air technology makes it an excellent choice for anyone looking for a comfortable and stylish shoe. The shoe is not just a new addition to the Nike collection; it is a tribute to the brand's commitment to evolving Air Max technology and its place in sneaker culture. The Air Max Pulse is a statement piece that is sure to turn heads wherever you go.

Rumor Has It Drake NOCTA Teams Up with Nike to Revive the Nike Air Zoom Drive Silhouette

Rumor Has It Drake NOCTA Teams Up with Nike to Revive the Nike Air Zoom Drive Silhouette

  • Posted By : Hatim
Drake’s NOCTA sub-label is partnering with Nike to revive an overlooked Nike Air Zoom Drive silhouette from the late 1990s.

This upcoming NOCTA x Nike Air Zoom Drive SP is rumored to arrive in two simple colorways: “Black” and “White” other are showing Grey colorway. 
It is expected to feature a paneled mesh construction with ’90s detailing, a signature moderator underfoot plate, and co-branding logos. 
The retail price for both colorways is set at $165, maybe 169,99€ for Europe and £159,95 for UK, and they are expected to release in men’s sizing during the Holiday 2023 season.

Drake has been taking inspiration from Nike’s archives to create his silhouettes, such as the Air Terra and the unnamed Zoom Flight 95-inspired model. Now, he is reviving the Nike Air Zoom Drive, a predecessor of the Air Presto designed by Tinker Hatfield during its development. The original model had a more traditional collar and construction but featured stretchy mesh for a “t-shirt” fit.
The NOCTA x Nike Air Zoom Drive SP White will give the silhouette a clean makeover, while the “Black White” colorway will keep things simple with a black and white color scheme. 

While Drake’s NOCTA sub-label has not made as big of an impact as both Nike and Drake would have liked, the partnership between the two continues to take an archival approach to footwear. The NOCTA x Nike Air Zoom Drive SP is expected to feature a more premium construction than its predecessor, with added NOCTA flair.
The shoe will come with special packaging marking the release and will be available through Nike, NOCTA, and select retailers online and in-store.

Please note that at this time, there are no official images or mockups available for the NOCTA x Nike Air Zoom Drive SP.
