Glossy finishes and vibrant hues style the upcoming Nike Air Max 1 FB Premium QS Pack, a two-pair duo that slightly alters the classic silhouette. Both pairs of these Air Max 1s feature glossy uppers in beaming tones that look towards Summer. One half of the pack uses a polarized blue upper, teaming up with a fiery red Swoosh and white sole. The other pair features a metallic silver base and a volt overlaying mudguard, contrasted with a white midsole and black Swoosh. Get a closer look at both elements below, and watch for a release at Yamaotoko March 8th.
After a tease and a promise to reveal their first Flyknit soccer kick on March 6th, @nikefootball delivers on their guarantee right on schedule with the unveiling of the Nike Magista. It was only a matter of time before Flyknit tech would land on performance sneakers for the pitch, and that day has come, with the Magista sporting a completely knitted upper, underlined by Nike’s state-of-the-art rotational traction cleat system. Going against the standard of low-top, soccer boots, Nike opted for a sock-like extension, raising the cleat to a mid-top cut, providing a heightened level of ankle support. Check out Nike’s newest addition to the cleated kick family, the Magista, in the photos below, and stay tuned to Nice Kicks for updates on when they’ll arrive at retailers.

Nike Skateboarding’s premier model is simplified both constructively and aesthetically to create the Nike SB Stefan Janoski AC RS Black/Varsity Maize. Swapping out its laces for a velcro lockdown system, this rendition of Stefan Janoski’s signature features a canvas ripstop body and a flexible midsole for durable comfort. A night black upper, sole, and straps are interrupted only by varsity maize detailing on the velcro and staple tongue logo. “Strike and Destroy” tags the cork insoles on this AC RS Janoski, which is available now at Nike.

Since their last foray with Reebok, Garbstore has been back in the lab with the brand, emerging with another collab on the Reebok Inferno. A retro runner turned casual stunner, the Inferno takes on a perforated beige suede upper, sidled by parchment on the toe cap and brown leather on the heel counter. As a change-up set in contrast to the upper, a white-speckled black midsole is seen, underlined by more hits of parchment and beige. The latest installment of the Garbstore x Reebok tandem is now available at Sneakersnstuff for $129.
Frank the Butcher has added his creative touch to a classic with the BAU x Reebok Insta Pump Fury OG. A collaboration between his personal BAU brand and RBK, these Insta Pump Fury OGs use sleek and subtle color blocking, which ultimately makes for a classy design. Black neoprene composes the body, paired with gold leather on the toe caps and heels. The model’s signature cage is subtly speckled with 3M that sparkles all over when flashed. White Hexalite midsoles, BAU heel logos, and “all is fair” stitched tags all contribute even more detailing to these collaborative Reeboks. Get an up close and personal look at the pair from the “Father/Daughter” pack below, and grab yours on March 15th from select retailers, including shopnicekicks.
