With very few exceptions, and perhaps none outside of basketball, the Nike Air Max line is an industry standard for style, innovation, and function. Black Friday will see the release of the newest addition to the Air Max family – the Nike Air Max 2015. Though the silhouette of the Air Max isn’t drastically different from past years, the design and features of the 2015 edition are certainly game changing and very different stylistically than the 2014 model. Exposed flywire and a fused heel piece allow for some eye popping colorways that look great, not to mention the lightweight stability the features add.
The Air Max 2015 upper works harmoniously with the full-length Max Air cushioning platform, known for its ultra-plush, bouncy cushioning. The Max Air unit’s tubular construction allows for greater flexibility while still delivering full-length cushioning underfoot. Flex grooves further enhance forefoot flexibility and a smooth transition from touchdown to takeoff, and a Waffle outsole provides excellent road traction. Sculpted Cushlon positioned between the Max Air unit and the shoe upper rounds out the cushioning platform for a smooth, soft ride.
The Nike Air Max 2015 will release on Friday, November 28th, at Foot Locker and Footlocker.com in both men’s and women’s sizes for $ 190. Kids sizes will also be available.
This week, Jordan Brand debuts the eighth iteration in Chris Paul’s signature shoe. The Jordan CP3.VIII brings a sleek, minimalist aesthetic to a shoe designed to deliver maximum performance, speed and responsiveness to the court. Chris Paul is incredibly involved in the design process of the shoe, and works closely with Jordan Brand designers to create a shoe that is made specifically for his game. Paul asks designers to incorporate elements that give him an edge over his opponents, similar to a superhero’s kit with concealed secret weapons.
Beyond the shoe’s performance elements, the CP3 signature line has always featured personalized touches, helping distinguish Paul’s game-day footwear. The Jordan CP3.VIII continues that trend, with a family tree detailed on the inside of the tongue, complementing the traditional chevron design that pays tribute to the patriarchs of the Paul family.
The new Jordan CP3.VIII will be available starting Wednesday, November 5th on Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) and will arrive in stores this weekend for $ 130. Three colorways will be available this week: ‘Black/White/Infrared’ (which you can see below), ‘Teal/Pink/Black’ and ‘Cool Grey/Black/White.’ Kids full family sizes will also be available.

The third edition of the adidas D Rose 773 might be the best one yet. The newest version features D Rose specific detailing such as three stripes on the heel with an architectural pattern and premium finish inspired by Chicago’s landmarks. The lace jewel highlights the 773 area code that inspired the shoe’s name while the D Rose logo is featured on the side and the tongue. The latest D Rose 773 utilizes a perforated pattern to increase breathability, an improved collar shape to enhance fit and performance and adiprene+ cushioning for comfort and responsiveness during quick cuts and drives to the basket. The SPRINTWEB upper dawns a color contrasting overlay while the zoned traction pattern on the bottom of the shoe offers optimal grip to fit all styles of play.

The shoe whose namesake cushioning was inspired by astronauts bounding weightlessly on the moon is now more stable than ever.

Adidas has always been a leader and innovator when it comes to their running shoe products. After the highly successful launches of the Boost and Springblade last year, adidas is continuing to develop their running innovation lines with the new eco-friendly Element Refine. The Element Refine is a new lifestyle running shoe, that along with being extremely comfortable, is actually environmentally friendly. The upper is made of 90% recycled PET material and is one solid piece that is stitched together to create a mono surface that wraps the foot and behaves as a second skin. Because the upper serves as a second skin, there is no need for a sockliner, thus creating a more stable “ride” as you are lighter and lower to the ground.
The adidas Element Refine is now available in Foot Locker stores and on Footlocker.com in multiple colors for $ 70.
From the Brand that reinvented the T-shirt comes the first running shoe made entirely in a clothing factory. Under Armour is back with a brand new running shoe that is sure to turn heads. The Under Armour Speedform Apollo features a light, flexible, formfitting upper, smooth ultrasonic seams and an ultra light, responsive MicroG midsole. In addition, the Speedform Apollo is the first ever running shoe with a molded seamless heelcup. If you’re interested in picking up a pair, the shoe launches in multiple colors on Friday, February 28th at Foot Locker stores and Footlocker.com for $ 100. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have the shoe.
