Nike Sportswear has been composing “City” Packs for quite some time, and the latest from the line utilizes the Nike WMNS LunarElite Sky Hi, an innovative blend of premium comfort with contemporary style. Following last year’s Nike Free Flyknit “City Pack”, this collection of the LunarElite Sky Hi highlights six different notable cities – Sao Paolo, Tokyo, New York City, London, Milan, and Paris. Deeper than just geography, this Women’s City Pack is inspired by iconic structures from each location, from Paris’ tower to NYC’s sky-scrapers. Each rendition fully represents its town with abbreviated tags on the tongue pull tab and a full name imprinted under a translucent outsole. Get a preview of each model below, and book your visitation to each city when they begin to release on March 29th for $130.
The Nike Air Force 1′s technologically advanced brethren turns up again, this time soaked in “University Red.” An NS PRM kick, the Lunar Force 1 drops a few seams in favor of no-sew tech holding together its synthetic panels. Maintaining the lines of the Air Force 1, odes to the original are seen throughout the red/white/black low-top that gets its name from the use of a Lunarlon midsole. Check out the “University Red” Lunar Force 1 in detail in the shots below and head over to Caliroots to cop them for €129 (~$179).
Laterally laced, the Nike Air Footscape Motion is seen in a new Base Grey/Light Crimson style code. This form of the model uses a combination of textile, leather, suede and mesh, which all team up to create a lightweight upper on top of a Polyurethane midsole for a Nike Free-inspired fit. Base grey makes up the majority of this Footscape on the tongue and lateral panel, while light crimson covers the medial side and heel clip. Black accents up top and a white sole add contrast to this Summer shoe, which is available now at Nike.
Penny Hardaway fans are in for a few treats. Earlier this week, Gentry Humphrey confirmed that the “Shooting Stars” Nike Air Foamposite One will release. Today, the excitement is amplified as Hardaway confirmed in an interview with Complex that a Nike Air Penny 6 will also launch. This pair follows up 2011′s Nike Air Penny V, the first post-retirement signature for Anfernee. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for images and info on the upcoming Penny sig.
The sneakers originally made popular thanks to their comfort just got even more comfortable.

Each pair in the trio comes with solid color-blocked uppers, contrasted by off-white laces and midsoles. Lace them with or without socks this upcoming spring after picking up a pair today for $90 from shopnicekicks.
Street struck and brought back, the Nike Air Raid is going on a retro run in 2014. Following up a look at an OG interpretation, we see an all new Wolf Grey/Venom Green colorway. This modern makeup relies on an all grey base, set atop a black midsole with venom green speckling. The two tones accent the straps, lining and outsole, completing the colorway in balanced fashion. Look for the Nike Air Raid Wolf Grey Venom Green to launch in April and pre-order a pair now at End.
The snow will soon melt away and the hues of spring will reign. In the meantime, the Nike Air Huarache Cool Grey/Atomic Mango does a good job of splitting the seasons. A cool grey base blends slightly tumbled leather with neoprene, hugging the foot in easy to clean, easy to wear fashion. Atomic mango hits highlight the outsole, tongue tagging and heel clip, closing out this colorway in bright fashion. Look for the Nike Air Huarache Cool Grey/Atomic Mango to launch this spring at select Nike Sportswear accounts, with pre-order available now at End.
