The NIKES on My Feet
Nike – brand in focus
Nike have been the King of Kicks ever since the first Waffle Bottoms hit the street, so in 2013 it’s no surprise to see them doing everything they can to retain the crown for another year. Below, we’ve selected some of our favourite Nike 2013, sneakers of the moment.
Nike Lunar Fly 306 QS – Challenge Red
Great performance technology, lightweight, with a breathable body made of hyperfuse textile and a soft, responsive sole. If the red is just too bold for you, it does come in a couple of less dramatic colourways, but who’s shy of a bit of colour, f**k it, just do it…
Nike Air Pegasus 83/30 – Team Red
Available at End clothing for a meagre £75.
Nike Rosherun – Marble Obsidian
Nike Air Max 90 – Duck Infra Camo Pack
These things have literally just been released and we can’t get enough. The whole “pack” contains snapbacks, two t-shirts and a hooded sweater, all in the camo design. Pretty hard to get hold of, though, as the collaboration with Atmos will only be available, at least initially, via Sports Lab, Tokyo, so you might have to turn to Ebay.
Nike Classic Cortez Nylon Prem QS – Quilted
The cortez dates back to the ’70s – that’s a pretty longstanding trainer design and with good reason. Favourite among Kendrick Lamar’s hip hop crew and teenage vampire royalty alike, these shoes are sticking around for good.
Right, after all of that Sneaker porn I’m off to go have a ciggy and a quick lie down whilst bumpin’ this Mac Miller Ditty about… yeah, you guessed it, Nikes.
