This week's best Nike drops

Make a statement in the latest made-for-flexing Nike silhouettes

Nike’s one of those brands that hardly needs any marketing. From its athletic beginnings to Jordans, Air Maxes and Air Force Ones, the Swoosh is synonymous with performance, high quality, innovative design and the hype up-and-comers dream of. This week saw a huge drop of apparel, footwear and accessories by Nike. Consider yourself a fan? Scroll down to see our latest must-haves and what makes each pair so amazing.  

Nike Duel Racer

These iconic race-day flats from back in the day sprint back into style with a tried-and-true design and modern colourway. With subtle logo detailing on the tongue, sides and heel tab and a sleek and breathable material in a rich olive green and fresh sky blue colourway. These sneakers are sporty sophistication, giving you added comfort and cushioning thanks to their low-profile rubber sole with dual-density foam support.

LunarSolo Running

The Nike LunarSolo is a running-inspired sneaker that features a neoprene upper that’s contoured to hug your midfoot like a sock boot, giving you more stability. The midsole consists of Lunarlon dual-density foam that’s softer and smoother than ever, while the outsole has laser-cut pods that ease shock absorption. The Grey Sand/Moon Particle colourway looks good with anything too — whether you’re hitting the gym in the morning or brunching with the squad.

Air Huarache City Low

Dedicated minimalists can take to the streets while stepping on some toes in this edgy 90s-inspired silhouette. With a nostalgic yet futuristic design, the Huarache City breaks all the rules like a real rebel should. It features an intricate series of closure options that includes removable straps and laces, allowing you to choose just how you want to rock ‘em.

Air Max 270

Inspired by the Air Max 180 and 93 silhouettes, the 270 somehow manages to amalgamate and improve the two classics, maintaining a futuristic aesthetic thanks to the exaggerated heel Air unit. This Air unit turns out to be Nike’s biggest so far (in a colour known as Hot Punch) and is designed to give you a more comfortable stride, whether you’re running the streets or actually running. The kicks feature asymmetrical lacing, a breathable knit upper in the Light Bone colourway and a sock-like bootie fit with a heel pull tab to make slipping them on even easier.

Air Huarache Drift ‘07

Looking for something electrifying for your feet? Try the Huarache Air Draft’s Black Volt colourway. Unlike last week’s all-black model, this one features a black upper and midfoot cage, white outsole and a bright, neon yellow toe box. Designed to catch eyes, the pop of colour might be an unexpected welcome to those who find autumn’s stereotypical palette too somber. The Black Volt also sports detachable side panels that extend the lacing system.
