Nike Releases this Week
Will things be better over the next few weeks? While they are extending the quarantine for a couple more weeks, we can only hope for things to improve so that we can shift towards the new normal. Nike’s been keeping things interesting with their releases. One thing’s for sure this 2020 – ACG’s their go-to card for their NSW angle and Dunks are definitely back. May 14 is a big day for this week’s releases and here’s a rundown of what’s dropping:
Nike PG4 ‘PCG’
Gone fishing. Even that PG can’t do during this quarantine. But following the tradition with his other signature models, Nike Basketball tapped into George’s love for fishing and the outdoors. With a play on ACG color blocking and styling, Nike introduces the PG4 ‘PCG’. Nike uses PCG (Paul Clifton George) in the form of the iconic ACG logo on the heel. With rope-like laces and Laser Crimson hits, this PG4’s sure to stand out on the court or the elements.
The Nike PG4 ‘PCG’ drops this Thursday, May 14 via nike.com/ph. The shoe still retails for Php 5,795.
Nike ACG Moc 3.0 ‘Tie Dye’
Told you Nike’s all about pushing ACG this season (if only we can go and enjoy the outdoors!). Last season, we saw Nike introduce the ACG Moc 3.0 in pretty basic color blocking. This summer, Nike goes all out with a Tye Edition of their slip-on sneaker. Taking inspiration from the Air Footscape (one of my all-time favorite pairs), the shoe’s best for people with wide feet. The one-piece upper is constructed for easy entry and everyday use with its solid outsole with enhanced traction.
The nike ACG Moc 3.0 ‘Tie Dye’ also drops this Thursday via the Nike site for Php 4,995.
Nike Air Deschutz
And another one! If the PCG and Moc 3.0 doesn’t get you in the ACG mood, these water sandals should! All the way from 1992, Nike brings back the Air Deschutz. Let me go back a couple of decades when they first dropped. ACG was still at its infancy and the Air Deschutz was definitely an introduction to the brand’s outdoor line. Sure there were other outdoor sandals back then, but Nike blew the door wide open with the Air Deschutz. 28 years later, Nike improved on the classic with the sticky rubber outsole, cushioned heel straps and the quick-dry materials used on the upper. What’s great about it? The Air unit makes the sandal the comfiest ever. With or without socks, the Air Deschutz is a welcome addition to 2020.
The Nike Air Deschutz drops this Thursday via nike.com/ph in two colorways, Black and Off Noir. The updated water sandal retails for Php 3,695.
Nike Wmns React Vision ‘Pale Ivory’
Introduced earlier this year, Nike brings another colorway for the Women’s React Vision. Meant as a follow up to the React Element 87, the new React Vision now comes in a cozy Pale Ivory colorway with pops of color on the heel and eyestays.
The Nike Wmns React Vision ‘Pale Ivory’ also drops this Thursday via the Nike webstore. The shoe retails for Php 6,745.
Nike x Comme des Garcon Dunk Low
In what seems to be the most anticipated release this week, Nike hooks up with Japan’s Comme des Garcon for their renditon of the classic Nike Dunk. Seen last year during the SS220 Women’s Paris Fashion Week, Nike is set to drop two pairs that reflect CDG and their homebase.
Over the last 30+ years, the Nike Dunk has played a huge part in Japan — Tokyo to be more specific — and the city life — from the club scene, streetwear, skateboarding and fasion. The Dunk has seen a multitude of collaborations with the city and CDG adds two more to the mix. After their clear Dunk Hi three years ago, the Nike Dunk is now dressed in Nexkin, a similar material used on the Vaporfly SP and React Element 87. The transparent material is blended with an all-over monogram on one pair while the other goes for a simple black on transparent upper. Both feature black Swooshes and midsoles, a trademark of CDG from way back.
The Nike x Comme des Garcons Dunk Lows drop this Thursday, May 14. While they aren’t available on the Nike site, you can purchase them through CDG stores and Dover Street Market. There might be a release at other partner retailers in the coming weeks.
