Nike, Artist Steven Harrington Team Up for Earth Day Capsule

Nike is getting artistic for Earth Day thanks to a collaboration with artist Steven Harrington.
The sports giant teamed with the Los Angeles-based painter to create a capsule collection intended to inspire love for the planet. Harrington is best known for his colorful California-inspired psychedelic pop works that often include dog and palm tree characters, an aesthetic he transferred to three Nike footwear models.
The Nike Flyleather by Steven Harrington collection includes an Air Force 1, a Blazer and a Cortez, each of which were created using Nike Flyleather, a proprietary sustainable material that uses at least 50 percent recycled leather.
Harrington said Nike reached out to him about a year ago to see if he’d be interested in working on the project, “and when it hit my desk, I was so excited,” he said. “I’m such a fan of the brand and the topic itself.”
Although he has worked with Nike in the past, the “different scope” of this project, and its overriding message about sustainability really hit home.
Harrington admitted that translating his art to footwear required a different mind-set. “In the initial concepting and talking with the designers within Nike,” he said, “I took the notion of footwear completely out of my

Nike Gets Naomi Osaka, Adidas Moves on With Beyoncé

Tennis superstar Naomi Osaka is now playing on Team Nike — although some were looking for her to go a different direction in the ultracompetitive world of sports marketing deals.
Nike revealed its partnership with Japanese-born Osaka, the world’s number-one women’s single tennis player, on Thursday. But fans will have to wait until the Stuttgart Grand Prix, which begins April 22, to see the 21-year-old tennis player on the courts in Nike gear.
The news came as a bit of a surprise as many thought Osaka was courting a new corporate beau.
In September, after Osaka nabbed the U.S. Open title from Serena Williams, Osaka was rumored to be in talks with rival Adidas for an apparel endorsement worth an estimated 6.5 million pounds, or $ 8.5 million. She already had a deal with Adidas, but the rumored arrangement would have made the tennis star the highest-paid female athlete ever to sign with Adidas. Osaka was also seen sporting Adidas apparel as recently as January while competing in the Australian Open.
While Nike nabbed Osaka, the jilted Adidas had some blockbuster news of its own — which it chose to release the same day the Nike-Osaka tie-up was announced.
The German sports apparel, footwear and accessory

Virgil Abloh, Kim Jones Design Nike World Cup Collections

Virgil Abloh and Kim Jones both have relationships with soccer — or football.
Jones has said he really doesn’t like football but appreciates the aesthetics. For his World Cup collection for Nike, he wanted to rework the typical uniform and infuse London punk style of the Seventies and Eighties into the collection.
Titled “Football Reimagined,” the assortment includes training shorts, hoodies, jackets and a pair of the Nike x Kim Jones Air Max 360 High.

Kim Jones x Nike Lab 
Brett Lloyd

“That whole punk era was all about proportions that gave power to the wearer. I was inspired by the idea of DIY of the time — cutting up and putting things back together — to create something new,” Jones said.
Abloh recalls high school soccer matches and for his collection, titled “Football, Mon Amour,” he mixed lifestyle with sport typography and designed the Nike x Off-White Zoom Fly Mercurial Flyknit.
“The great thing about the vocabulary and history of football is that aesthetically it has its own look,” Abloh said. “I was always inspired by the way European teams have a sponsor printed over the chest. When I was working on this collection, I wanted to celebrate the different variants of typography.”
Jones’ collection will be released

Brooks-sponsored Runner Nick Symmonds Nixes Nike; Aims to Speak at SxSW

Whether an act of will, independence or marketing genius, the recent decision by Brooks Running-sponsored runner Nick Symmonds not to compete with the Nike-sponsored U.S. team at this month’s IAFF World Championships still has people talking.
The entrepreneurial runner earned a spot on the team that will compete in Beijing starting Aug. 22, after winning the 800 meters at the U.S. Track and Field Championships in Eugene, Ore. in June. But unlike his fellow American world championship qualifiers, Symmonds balked at signing the Statement of Conditions that would have required that he wear the designated USTAF team uniform for all team functions, while in China.
A Brooks spokesman declined to say Wednesday whether Symmonds consulted with any of the company’s executives before he went public with his decision. Nor was there any indication from the Seattle-based $ 500 million brand how he might be used in marketing down the line. Symmonds did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday.
In its 101st year in business, Brooks Running, a Berkshire Hathaway-owned company, has a reputation for pitching friendlier, more approachable branding than juggernauts like Nike and Adidas. Brooks’ “Run Happy” campaign includes advertising and international events. Symmonds’ independent thinking may be something Berkshire Hathaway’s

Nike Opens First Community Store In Brooklyn [Photos]

All you have to do is look down whenever you’re in Flatbush, Brookyn to know Nike is a staple in the hood. But the brand takes things a step further by opening its first community store in the neighborhood. 

The new store—who design includes imagery from local photographer Anthony Blasko—opened today (May 28) near the corner of Nostrand and Flatbush Avenues borough claiming by the Notorious B.I.G, Jay Z, Mike Tyson and many more.

The “Community Store” concept aims to empower locals and their community and being deep in Flatbush was as good place as any to set up shop.

“Nike Community Stores are about neighborhood roots and community connection” said Dennis van Oossanen, Vice President of Nike’s North America Direct to Consumer business via a press release. “So when we looked for a location, we wanted a place that was instantly recognizable, that expressed the unique spirit of Flatbush and Brooklyn and that amplified the values of the Nike brand. We think we found the perfect spot.”

The store has already met its target of having 80% of its employees be from the neighborhood. Also, employees will actively participate in community service events and help local non-profit organizations. Already on the schedule are after-school programs, a Zoom League basketball program and the Honor Roll Skate Club middle school students.

Products from Nike running, training, basketball and sportswear—as well BK specific items—will be available for women, men and young athletes in the store.

Take A Look At These Retro Nike Ads For Women

Earlier this week, Nike released its #betterforit ad spot, which said what we’re all pretty much thinking when we work out or go to the gym: What the hell am I doing? Nike has been empowering women for over 40 years and to show where the company has come from, the company also published some of its ads from the past decades this week.

Among some of our favorite women athletes featured in the ads are former WNBA players Lisa Leslie and Sheryl Swoopes, as well as women’s soccer legend, Mia Hamm.

Check out a sampling of some particular gems below, and head over to Nike to see the rest.

Nike LeBron 12 “Trillion Dollar Man” [Photos]

The good folks over at Foot Locker have just shared some exclusive details about the upcoming release of the Nike LeBron 12 “Trillion Dollar Man” and all sneakerheads should take heed to the news.

Calling LeBron “Trillion Dollar Man” may be a bit of an exaggeration but you can definitely call the newest colorway of the Nike LeBron 12 that. The Nike LeBron 12 “Trillion Dollar Man” pays homage to LeBron James’ “legendary work ethic and physical gifts.” The “Trillion Dollar Man” LeBron 12 is officially a Reflective Blue/TT-Electric Green-Metallic Silver colorway.

The upper first thing you’ll notice about the shoe’s upper is the bold metallic silver colors. If you look more closely, however, you’ll notice a tech-inspired pattern on the Nike Swoosh and on the inside portion of the outsole. A bold combination of colors makes up the rest of the release, which will account for the last of the original seven colorways we saw of the LeBron 12 at shoe’s launch.

The Nike LeBron 12 “Trillion Dollar Man” will release on Tuesday, December 30, at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker, and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $ 220. It will also be available in kids sizes. A matching Nike Digital Elite sock will also be available for $ 30.
