Categories:Designer Shoes

Yes, everyone’s favourite Nike sneaker is back, and instead of perpetually updating my previous post which is way, way long by now, I decided to start a new one. Nike’s Flyknit Racer needs no explanation; it’s lightweight, it’s stunning and most importantly, it is still one of the most coveted sneakers on the market. And the good news, Mr Porter has these (Total Orange/Dark Grey/White) in stock now, so you better move fast before they are all snapped up again (yes, click here to shop stat).

And yes, Mr Porter now has these too, in Game Royal/Pink Flash/Black.

Riccardo Tisci is Redesigning Another Iconic Nike Sneaker

Riccardo Tisci teams up with Nike for a re-design on the iconic Dunk sneaker styleRiccardo Tisci teams up with Nike for a re-design on the iconic Dunk sneaker style

Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci is teaming up with Nike once again for a redesign of the Dunk sneaker. In 2014, the Italian designer collaborated with Nike on the Air Force 1 which quickly sold out. Called the NikeLab Dunk Lux High x RT, the new style will hit North American retailers and Nike exclusively on February 11th.

Tisci’s re-envisioning of the Dunk includes exaggerated proportions. The height has been extended as well as a large swoosh and enlarged foxing while the back tab is placed upside-down.

“The Nike Dunk has a fascinating legacy,” Tisci says about the collaboration in an official statement. “It has been both mainstream and niche, adopted by communities of varying size and influence. But no matter the model, the Dunk has always had a cultural cachet that, as a designer, I’m quite drawn to.”

2014 marked Riccardo Tisci’s first collaboration with Nike. The Givenchy designer re-envisioned the iconic Nike Air Force 1 giving a colorful makeover with hi-top and low-top styles. Luxe fabrication with white leather as well as faux suede gave the sneakers a high fashion makeover.

Nike Flyknit Racer

Once you go Flyknit Racer you don’t ever go back. Which was sadly what happened to me when I was first introduced to them earlier this year. Besides being supremely lightweight and truly comfortable on the feet, they have developed a cult status around them, with whole Instagram accounts devoted to Flyknit Racer shoes past and present.

Often sold out as fast as they are released, you then find them on the secondary market selling for twice or even triple their retail, which makes acquiring them both alluring and frustrating at the same time.

But if you have been looking for a pair (they are unisex, by the way), you’re in luck.Over on Nike’s US site you’ll find 4 different pairs still available, from the much-coveted Black/White (otherwise known as the Oreo 2.0) to the new White/Game Royal/Green Strike/Black. And then there are Blue Lagoon/Polarized Blue/Ghost Green/Black and the Bright Citrus/Blue Lagoon/Laser Orange/Black, both slightly older models that are no less popular.

I don’t know how soon these will sell out, but at USD150 a pair, I suggest you find someone in the States who can get you a pair (or 4) pronto before they do yet again.

Nike S/S15 Roshe Flyknit

Categories:Designer Shoes

nike_ss15-roshe-flyknit1From having sworn off anything Nike for the longest time to it being pretty much the only brand I’ve been wearing of late, it has become my go-to shoe for romps around town, sessions at the gym and even when I’m headed for the plane because nothing makes more sense than a pair of comfy sneakers, especially if it’s a long-haul flight.

And if I recall correctly, my love affair with Nike was rekindled while on a press trip to Shanghai last year when we had free time and snuck off to Nike X158, a cool concept store at Xinle Road that had stocked the coolest Nike kicks. 12 pairs later, I can safely say this. If there’s one Nike shoe I can live the rest of my life in, it would be the Rosche Flyknit, which I chanced upon in November when I was in Tokyo.

Lightweight, sleek and featuring a one-piece midsole/outsole, it’s also freaking comfortable to wear, comes in a huge array of colours (ok, some combos do work much better than others) and is quite affordable (SGD199, to be exact) by most standards. More importantly, here are the colour combos that will be available in Singapore for both men and women which will be made available from February 2015 at both Nike Paragon and Nike Shaw.
