Nike has never been afraid of the hybrid, exploring the fusion of the endless styles has spawned a whole new fleet of fresh feet treats. The Wardour Max 1 is a pretty tight example of this ethos in evolution. Seen here for Spring/Summer 2013, the intermingled trail and running silhouette comes cloaked in British Tan and Khaki through the upper, complemented with heavy tonal stitching bouncing back to the ever-fresh Air Max 1 sole unit. So, if your down to smash the trails in style or stomp the streets like a smooth operator, head to Hanon to cop yours now.
Following the dark grey/teal edition of their Free Alt Closure Run, Nike gear up to send another schmick scheme out into the sneakersphere. Featuring a black elasticisedexoskeleton cage over the upper, these grey mesh bandits double up on the lock-down with a webbed layer of bright blue Hyperfuse taping. Finished of with a 4.0 Free sole, these free motion running socks are a tight package for all lightweight freaky sneaker fans. Peep these and more in Sneaker Freaker issue 27 and stay tuned for release info.
Following the all-Court Blue configuration last month, the Nike Lunar Solstice Mid SP makes a return this week with a subtle colorway of Anthracite, Black, and Sail. Designed to highlight Nike‘s running heritage back in 1980s, the Lunar Solstice Mid SP also features references to the current Nike innovations like the Lunarlon outsole. Hailed from Nike Sportswear Pinnacle Collection’s White Label Line, the shoe is quite recognizable thanks to its distinctive layering of suede, mesh, nylon panelings, and of course that Court Blue heel tab. Available now at European retailers such as UK’s end clothing and soon State-side at select NSW retail locations.
When news of Andre Agassi rejoining the Nike ranks hit recently, sneakerheads the world over salivated with the thoughts of possible re-releases of some of Agassi’s signature shoes. Well, it looks like we might be getting what we asked for, starting with the Air Tech Challenge Huarache Retro.
According to French website Baskettemple, we can expect these in 2014, in what will hopefully be the beginning of a series of signature Agassi Retros (Air Tech Challenge II (2), anyone???). In the above pic, it looks like the release will include 3 different colorways, 1 OG (the White/Black/Bright Goldenrod version in the forefront) and 2 new CWs, one featuring a Black/Orange/Purple colorway reminiscent of the colors seen on the early-90′s Phoenix Suns’ jerseys, and the other featuring a White/Light Blue/Grey colorway with a feel similar to the “French Blue” Air Jordan VII (7). All of the colorways are reminiscent of the 90s, which is appropriate, considering the Air Tech Challenge Huarache originally released in 1992. While the “Goldenrod” colorway version was an OG colorway, the Retro isn’t an exact version of the original, as the midsole is slightly different on the newest iteration. Either way, these shoes definitely capture the essence of the original, and will be highly-anticipated by fans of all things 90′s and sneakerheads alike.
Will you be copping a pair of these when they release? Hoping to see another Andre Agassi signature sneaker retro instead? Let us know in the comments below, and stay tuned for any updates on this upcoming release.

After collaborating earlier this year on the Nike Air Max 1 “Animal Camo” Pack, Atmos looks to be hooking up again with Nike, this time on a Nike Free Woven. As with their collaboration that dropped this February, this set features both a Men’s and Women’s iteration; the Men’s features a black woven upper with snakeskin accents, atop a white Free sole; the Women’s also features a black woven upper and, like its Air Max 1 sister, leopard camo accents, atop a red Free sole.
Details on this pack are slim at the moment, but you can be sure Sneaker Files will keep you updated as info becomes available. Set to release later this year, hopefully this pack will see a stateside release, but if it’s like the Air Max 1 “Animal Camo” Pack release, it’ll only be available at Atmos Tokyo, unfortunately. We can hope though, can’t we? Missing out on the Air Max 1 “Snakeskin Camo” was one of the biggest disappointments of the year for this writer, but alas, life goes on; new sneakers to cop, new fish to fry…
Hoping for a US release of this Atmos x Nike collaboration? Not really your style? Let us know in the comments below, and keep it locked here for any updates on this release.
Following up on a feral pack of Air Max 1s, atmos looks to be readying another collaboration with Nike. This time around, the acclaimed Japanese sneaker retailer has worked with the Swoosh on two styles of the Nike Free Woven, combining avant-garde styling and the minimal barefoot-like feel of a Nike Free 3.0 sole unit. Both colorways feature a woven upper finished predominantly in black, one sitting on a white midsole and the other on a contrast red midsole. Subtle reptilian accents at the vamp and makeshift tongue continue the distinct wildlife theme. Stay tuned for word on a release date.

A semi-collaboration in many ways, since F.C.R.B. is related to Nike, the release of their Solarsoft Waffle Cruiser in two special colorways is still nonetheless an interesting offering. This spared-down take on Nike’s “Waffle Racer” silhouette has been rendered in two spring-appropriate colorways; Black/Volt and Navy/Sax. Specifically, the Black/Volt color scheme references F.C.R.B.’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection, but both shoes feature special F.C.R.B. branding. These two exclusive colorways will be available at all F.C.R.B. retailers starting on May 25, at a price of around USD.
