The hottest new sneakers coming from Nike From the hyped to the completely new

There’s a lot of sneaker news from Nike at the moment so we thought it best to get them all collected in one thread for you guys. From hyped shoes to brand new silhouettes, let's have a closer look at the upcoming sneaker heat from Nike.


React Element

Let's start with one of the most coveted sneakers of the summer season, the Nike React Element, selling out everywhere instantly and basically being unavailable even before its release, Nike is hearing the hunger for the new silhouette and expect way more Reacts to come our way. Beyond the restock of the React Element 87, and the Undercover edition coming in the fall, here’s a first look at some of the new Nike React Elements editions in the works. Featuring not only the 87’s but brand new silhouettes incorporating the React technology, let us know which are your favorite?


VaporMax Light 2


Next, its time for a brand new Nike silhouette, the VaporMax Light 2, quite certain to be divisive this western boot meets futuristic sock sneaker is an odd one, to say the least. The Vapormax cushion seems out of place as if it was stepped on accidentally and just stuck to the bottom of the shoe, and the whole finish comes off looking a bit like a pair to rain wellies. We need to see these in real life, but we're not feeling them too much from the pictures, to be honest.


Skepta x Air Max Deluxe

One of the most hyped collabs of last year was between UK Grime star Skepta and Nike, the first edition which reworked the Air Max 97 was a smash hit and now we’ve been teased pictures of the next collab in line. Reworking the Air Max Deluxe this time, the sneaker features a red inside of the air cushion, speckled computer graphics on the uppers, and with the text “Never sleep on tour” written on the side. Whether this edition will outweigh the popularity of the Air Max 97 remains to be seen, but expect these shoes to drop in the not so distant future.


Air Fear of God 1

The collaboration between Fear of God and Nike seems to be coming closer to being released. Teased since last year Jerry Lorenzo’s reworking of the Skylon 2 called Nike Air Fear Of God 1, is looking like a possible October release. Available in 3 colorways, dark grey, light grey and brown/tan, the shoe features “Fear of God” text all over the upper. We have to say that coming from his own, really well-done shoes for F.O.G. we were expecting more from Jerry Lorenzo and Nike.


Air Jordan

The list wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t also update you guys on some Air Jordan news as well. First off the extremely popular Air Jordan 3 that Justin Timberlake was wearing during his super bowl performance is seeing a release in a new beige colorway on August 28. The shoe which was originally designed by the sneaker legend Tinker Hatfield gets a very clean reworking in beige and will surely only add to the shoes popularity. Lastly, we have to tease the new collab between Air Jordan and Levi's that is looking like a January 2019 release atm. The iconic Air Jordan 6 shoes get an acid washed denim redressing that we’re sure will drive some sneakerheads wild.

That's it for now, but stay locked to nss for any and all updates on the sneakers above as copping these grails won't be easy.
