The Nike ZoomX Vista Grind was attention-grabbing from the moment it first dropped. The expose recycled midsoles, chunky silhouette and bright lime green colorway were nothing short of crazy.

As a tribute to founder Sandy Bodecker, Nike SB is re-releasing his favorite sneaker – the Nike SB Dunk Low “Roswell Rayguns”. The SB Dunk Low “Raygun” was a grail of the early 2000s and is now making a grand return. The sneaker’s design fuses the tie-dye prints Sandy Bodecker was known to rock with the color blocking of the original “Raygun” shoe – creating a trippy and vibrant sneaker.

Nike Air Force 1 “Colin Kaepernick”
December 28

Weekly drop Air Force 1 Colin Kaepernick

Sometimes, kneeling for your community is the most powerful thing you can do. And no one exemplifies this better than Colin Kaepernick – who started a movement by kneeling during the US national anthem to raise awareness about the violence and discrimination black people face in America. Though it cost him his career, Nike has continued to support Colin. Part of that includes giving him his own Air Force 1. The Air Force 1 “Colin Kaepernick” comes with smooth black leather uppers and a gradient Swoosh. The tongue tabs feature his logo and you can find his face on the heel tabs. To properly commemorate Colin’s protest and activism, the outsoles proudly showcase the date he first took the knee – August 14, 2016. You can cop these sneakers at End Clothing and Size?.
