Illuminated in a vibrant neon-yellowish hue, the seamless upper features all-over Volt for the first time in the Foam’s 17-year legacy. The latest release brings one of Nike’s most iconic colors to the legendary silhouette which continues on the translucent sole, mesh bootie and laces. Complementing the tonal design cues, the words “Air” and “Foamposite” make bold statements on the tongue and heel tab. Minimal black accents produce a pronounced juxtaposition on the shoe, including its checkered carbon fiber shank. The Foamposite Pro is a sneaker community fan favorite, and this eye-catching colorway shouldn’t disappoint those fans.

Nike Basketball’s signature athletes Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and LeBron James are celebrating Christmas by releasing festive kicks to tell their individual stories.

LeBron James is no stranger to hard work. His drive is what guided him to basketball’s ultimate pinnacle. His strong work ethic can be dated back to his early roots growing up in Akron, Ohio, where he watched his city prevail through the dedication of its industry workers. Nicknamed the “Rubber City,” for its major tire production, Akron’s blue-collar workforce is honored in the latest LeBron 12 Lifestyle.
Featuring denim on the quarter panels, the upper reflects the rugged apparel worn by the city’s factory workers. Micro-suede runs from the toe up the tongue, adding a premium touch that’s accented by vibrant Flywire support on the eyelets. A volcanized gum sole complements the shoe’s lining, reflecting the color of sturdy work boots. Additionally, the city is honored with its “330” area code highlighted on the heel tab.
The Nike LeBron 12 Lifestyle Denim drops Friday, December 19th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $ 130. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release.
The Air Jordan 1 is one of the most iconic sneakers of all time and began the sneaker craze as we know it today. In recent years, it has also become Jordan Brands most versatile canvas for hybrids in which they combine the silhouette of the AJ 1 with design elements from another model. The Lab series takes that concept to another level and on the 4Lab1 we see “the infamous lightweight netting found on the Air Jordan IV is applied to the entire Air Jordan I upper, along with the iconic Air Jordan I Wings logo and Nike Swoosh.” An icy outsole below a white midsole matches up nicely with the translucent upper while the tongue branding also gets its inspiration from the AJ IV.
The Jordan 4Lab1 “Black/Reflect Silver” drops on Friday, December 19th at select House of Hoops by Foot Locker stores and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $ 185.
The Nike LeBron 12 NSW Lifestyle takes on a “Denim” aesthetic, which is inspired by the blue collar work ethic of LeBron James’ hometown. Flush with the headlining fabric making up the quarter panels, premium micro-suede adorns the toe and tongue. The silhouette’s Flywire lace eyelets pop with Fireberry while the vulcanized gum outsole caps off the sneaker. Last but not least, “330” is emblazoned on each heel tab which is the area code of Akron, Ohio.

A timeless hoops classic returns this Friday, when the Nike Air Command Force drops in stores in a fresh ‘Riverwalk’ colorway. The Nike Air Command Force first touched down in 1990 during a golden age for hoops. This time was marked by signature silhouettes with features as big, bold, and striking as the icons who laced them on the court. A leader of the Force lineage, the Nike Air Command Force kept big men, such as Spurs legend David Robinson, on top of their game with maximum support and impact protection. From the blacktop to the Riverwalk, the Nike Air Command Force drops this Friday, December 19th in stores for $ 200. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release.
The classic basketball silhouette of Nike Air Command Force is revised in the colorway of Black, Wolf Grey, Hyper Jade and Hyper Pink. Black serves as the dominating shade across its suede, mesh and leather upper, while Wolf Grey is applied on the sole, Swoosh and portion of the heel counter. Bright pops of Hyper Jade and Hyper Pink round out the color scheme throughout. The focus of functionality is present in the Air-Fit System consisting of an inflatable/deflatable Air bladder situated behind, above and below the ankle which creates a desired fit. First releasing in 1990, the the Air Command Force still demands attention two decades later.

This Friday, December 19th, is shaping up to be a huge day of releases – one of which is the Nike Kobe 9 KRM EXT “Challenge Red.” It is different and bold from any Kobe we’ve seen before and any of Friday’s other releases.
The latest Kobe 9 EXT is meant to embody the aesthetic and attitude of the venomous Red Viper. Exuding a serpent-like appearance, the upper is styled in Challenge Red KRM that forms compression molded TPU triangles, mimicking the viper’s vibrant pointy scales. Premium Challenge Red leather on the heel and collar also features a scaly snake-inspired pattern and tonal stitching. Additionally, a black midsole produces a striking juxtaposition that contours chrome inlays to shine off the court.
The Nike Kobe 9 KRM EXT “Challenge Red” drops this Friday, December 19th, at House of Hoops by Foot Locker stores and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $ 275.
Kevin Durant only played basketball at the University of Texas for one year, but his impact and love of the Longhorns is well documented. Continuing that passion for UT, Nike and KD will release a special ‘Wild West’ version of his latest signature kicks, the KD7, this Friday. Featuring a silver and orange color scheme that’s set off with a metallic Hyperposite heel, the the KD7 ‘Wild West’ shoe takes inspiration from the Longhorn State and the Austin culture that Durant enjoyed. Knowing little about Texas and southwest hospitality, Durant immediately felt at home when he arrived on campus in Austin. The friendly welcome extended beyond the basketball court as Durant enjoyed the music, people, food and culture that was distinctly Austin.
The Nike KD7 ‘Wild West’ drops this Friday, December 19th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $ 150. Grade school kids sizes will also be available ($ 115).

LeBron 12 “Akron Birch”
The LeBron 12 was developed to meet James’s performance needs based on research from the Nike Sport Research Lab. Nike Zoom Air technology is brought to a new level on this shoe. The emerald green base combines with the shoe’s photorealistic camouflage upper on the Hyperposite shell. The camo pattern is inspired by Akron, Ohio’s winter weather and includes a birch tree pattern. Black and Hyperpunch micro dots integrate into the camo pattern for a seasonal touch. A notable subtlety of this shoe is the snowflake formed by small hexagons on the tongue loop.
KD 7 “Egg Nog”
Driven by a design philosophy to stay light and locked down during sharp cuts, the KD 7 features dynamic Flywire technology, Hyperposite construction and Zoom Air cushioning. The shoe continues to bring Durant’s personal stories to life – this time paying tribute to his favorite holiday beverage, egg nog. A red Hyperposite heel integrates glossy flecks emulating the condensation on a glass of egg nog. “Fresh Since ’88,” Durant’s birth year, emblazons the shoe’s sock liner as a tribute to the holiday beverage Durant has enjoyed since childhood.
Kobe 9 Elite “Knit Stocking”
The Kobe 9 gets a festive makeover highlighting its knitted aesthetic with a red and white Flyknit upper, taking inspiration from a knit stocking. Supple leather textures on the tongue and overlays give the shoe a premium feel, accented by a marbled outsole resembling candy canes. Inside, the shoe reads “Mamba’s Greetings,” a hidden detail from Bryant on the inner tongue.
