Nike Air Ghost Racer

Nike Air Ghost Racer – A Contrasting Continuation

First released in 1998, the Nike Air Ghost Racer was originally created to offer up comfort and stability to all those brave enough to take on anything more than a brisk walk. Named after US long-distance runner Mark Nenow, who acquired the nickname, ‘Ghost Racer’ due to his preference to run at night, the trainers quickly became the shoe of choice thanks to not only their emphasis on performance and accessible price point but their unique design and hauntingly impressive underfoot technology.

Having enjoyed a return to relevancy earlier in the year with a re-release of their debut neon colourway, the retro sneakers, like many of Nike’s historical heavyweights, have bid adieu to their functional-focused roots and instead opted for a more lifestyle orientated existence.

Returning in two new colourways, an equally as eye-watering, ‘Orange Peel / Aphid Green’ and more paired back, ‘Cool Grey / Wolf Grey’, the Ghost Racer keeps its original formula largely unchanged. With uppers primarily made from a lightweight, breathable mesh, the trainers boast synthetic leather overlays for added durability and come equipped with a true-to-the-original, supportive midfoot wrap. Below the trainers benefit from Nike’s now revered zoom air technology ensuring plenty of energy-return cushioning with every step and making them perfect for perusing around all your favourite local haunts.

In the looks department the now 20-year-old Nike Air Ghost Racer finds itself slotting seamlessly into today’s trends thanks to its undeniable, ’dad shoe’ charm. Through a mixture of panelling, cut out sections and textural variations the sneakers conjure a complex array of visual depth, whilst an off-kilter swoosh logo adds a subtle variation to Nike’s usual signature sign off.

You can find both the Nike Air Ghost Racer in both, ‘Orange Peel / Aphid Green’ and, ‘Cool Grey / Wolf Grey’ online and in store now.

Swoosh Street Style: Nike Hooded Fleece

Fusing The Great Outdoors With Urban Spirit

Suddenly realised its nearing the end of 2019 and you’re yet to tick off one of your New Years resolutions? Perhaps one of them was to encourage yourself to step out of your comfort zone? If that’s indeed the case, then lucky you because we’ve just found ourselves in possession of the perfect piece to see you into daring territory. Unapologetically bold, this Nike Hooded Fleece arrives brimming with explosive hues and ‘70s design cues.

Exactly what you need to enliven an autumnal rotation that’s seemingly become mundane, this new-season Swoosh style comes bundled in neon pigments of orange, peach, coral and purple which are then executed with cosy Sherpa fleece and nylon overlays.

Though immensely soft and comforting to the outer, this Nike Hooded Fleece strikes the perfect temperature balance internally thanks to its breathable mesh body. This type of stark fabric contrast on each side is intentional and ensures the design can cultivate the ideal warm-to-cool ratio amidst the unpredictable British weather, which let’s face it, we all love to hate.

Elsewhere, the silhouette’s high-octane aesthetic is bolstered by distinctive Nike branding at the chest and royal-blue trims at its pocket and cuffs. Additional details include a contemporary ½ zip closure and capacious hood with Sherpa fleece lining.

In what appears as a true ‘streetwear meets the great outdoors’ kinda set up, this Nike Hooded Fleece sends a bold, winterized message to the standard feel of ‘70s climbing gear. And though it’s certainly not reserved for the faint-hearted, we encourage you to take a leap of faith with this one, you won’t regret it.

Nike Air Max Tailwind IV: The ’90s Favourite Returns

The ‘90s called, they want their shoes back.

Brimming with nostalgia, the Nike Air Max Tailwind IV continues to reap the rewards of its resurgence this season as the Swoosh debuts yet another new colourway to the sneaker circuit’s prying eyes.

Fresh on the heels of its 20th anniversary, this ‘99 remake is harnessing all the attention it can get after slipping off the radar back in the early noughties. But it seems a few years off the grid has done the design some good. Like any other industry, the footwear realm is subject to change; trend’s come and go, fashion’s fade, but with the current state of the sneaker zeitgeist, Nike’s Air Max Tailwind IV couldn’t feel more relevant.

Finding no problem with carving its place in the millennial air of today, the trainer effortlessly addresses the tastemakers of 2019 with its fierce triple-black colourway. Furthermore, the Swoosh silhouette is anything but refined – it’s shaped with a bulbous anatomy, which not only makes it a certain contender of the Air Max dynasty, but also a compatible extension to the industry’s bigger picture. For a few years now, the scene has been dominated by chunky footwear formulas, making this design a welcomed addition to the current status quo.

Nike Air Max Tailwind Triple Black Air Max Tailwind IV Triple Black

Build wise, it goes without saying that the trainer is a force to be reckoned with. Backed by the science of the Swoosh, the Air Max Tailwind IV rides upon Max Air technology for the smoothest step into the city, teamed alongside flex grooves in its outsole which move and bend meticulously with your foot, while bolstering traction on the ground. The injection of BRS 1000 Carbon Rubber promises protection in even the most vulnerable areas, shielding the shoe from abrasion and other fatal damage that may potentially occur.

Above ship, the upper is articulated with ripple-like accents across its side panels, coupled with tonal materials that subtly pinpoint places of focus – such as the shoe’s toe and heel. Other details includes stealthy Swoosh branding and a full Air Max lacing system.

Give your rotation a touch of throwback style when the Nike Air Max Tailwind IV (AQ2567-005launches in-store and online at Aphrodite on Thursday, October 10th at 8am. Don’t miss out!

Nike Air Max 200

Being creatures of habit and all that, it’s fair to say that change can be a bit scary.

Nike Air Max 200 Trainers

Despite the first two no doubt inspiring feelings of sheer panic and guilt-ladened remorse, the third should do quite the opposite, especially when you take into account Nike’s proven track record of pumping out some of the finest progressive sneakers we have had the fortune of lacing to our feet.

Nike Air Max 200 Sneakers

Continuing the trend, the recently introduced Nike Air Max 200 stretches out a hand to even the most set in their ways sneakerhead, offering up enough innovation to satisfy that forward-thinking itch, whilst simultaneously keeping the brand’s core fundamentals close to hand.

Delivering impressive levels of both urban appeal and practical cushioning the sneakers come dressed to the nines with street-ready add-ons making use of a number of classic materials for a result that feels both unique but unequivocally familiar.

Nike VaporMax DM/S/X Trainers New Release

Strapping in both Vapor Max technology and a rubber pad grip below for enviable levels of support and traction, the trainers construct their uppers from a varied list of fan favourite materials.

Nike AF1-Type: A Timeless Silhouette with a Twist

A Timeless Silhouette Offered In Two New Exciting Colourways

Returning with a fresh instalment of their newly launched N.354 seriesNike unveils the AF1-Type in “Black / Pink Tint” and “Summit White” colourway.

AF1-Type Black

Originally launched in 1982, the iconic Air Force silhouette was the first basketball shoe that featured a pocket filled with air in the heal for extra cushioning; ensuring support, comfort and a strong foundation. Now, Nike dives deep into the Department of Nike’s Archives to reimagine the pre-production prototype that is the AF1-Type and yields exciting results.

“Black / Anthracite / Zinnia / Pink Tint”

Stripped down but highly detailed, the Air Force 1 Type boasts a handmade aesthetic. Showcasing the brand’s dedication to timeless silhouettes and pushing the boundaries on footwear design. The most recent colourway that Nike has to offer is “Black / Pink Tint”. A unique colour scheme that flaunts detailing that symbolises the past, present and future.

AF1-Type Black Anthracite

AF1-Type Black Anthracite Zinnia

AF1-Type Black Anthracite Zinnia Pink

The pair features several unique elements. A key modification is the Velcro strap closure system that sits across its heel. A transparent skin-like material on the inner of the shoe showcases the closure system and adjustable coral pink details. Handwritten Nike Swoosh resting on the rear tab, seam tape and exposed stitches create a handcrafted effect and gesture a first-draft of a potential future product. Pencilled “n.354” sits proudly to the outer panel, influenced by American long-distance runner Steve Prefontaine’s fastest mile.

A padded stretch tongue gives a retro feel. Round indented segments and perforated pattern add further detailing whilst offering additional ventilation. A double-in-size toe cap, with geometric, crocodile-skin-like patterning, inspired by the technical manuals found inside shoeboxes from the ‘70s and ‘80s. A nostalgic piece of detailing that also presents a futuristic vibe.

“Summit White / Red Orbit / White / Black”

AF1-Type Summit White

The second colourway is “Summit White”. A crisp, clean colour scheme that is equally as iconic as “Black / Pink Tint”. Faux hand drew “n. 354” is dressed in black and sits beneath bright coral tape detailing. A contrasting padded stretch tongue adds an extra pop of colour to the AF1-Type model, boasting cobalt blue. Although minimally branded, the design offers a modern take on a pre-production prototype.

AF1-Type Summit White Red

Known for their comfort and practicality, Nike doesn’t cut corners when it comes to the quality of the AF1-Type. A partial breathable inner sleeve offers a sock-like feel, allowing comfort and ventilation all day long. Flywire cables and adjustable heel strap not only provides a unique closure system but additional support around your midfoot also. The AF1-Type is built with cupsole construction; delivering a harder feeling whilst offering more foot and ankle support. The Nike air unit provides lightweight cushioning and comfort, just like it did back in 1982.

The Air Force body has been a huge success since the ‘80s. The silhouette is now considered a global street culture standard. Frequently being re-envisioned by major fashion houses and Nike designers, there are hundreds of AF1 designs and collaborations available on the market today.

The Air Force 1 Type in “Black / Pink Tint” and “Summit White” is coming soon both online and in-store at Aphrodite.

Nike Trainers: Style The Swoosh Right

How To Wear Nike Trainers

In today’s fashion zeitgeist it’s near impossible to imagine a world without Nike trainers. But, in the bygone days of the ‘60s and ‘70s, before the Swoosh locked down sartorial status, the footwear industry wasn’t quite sure what it was missing without the sporting stalwart’s sneakers.

Jump 40-something years and Nike trainers have reached the pinnacle of footwear culture in 2019. Having etched their presence into society and sportswear alike, the brand’s kicks, ranging from the nostalgic Cortez, to the Waffle Racer ‘Moon Shoe’ and the ever-popular Air Max dynasty, are true style icons.

Therefore, mastering your Swoosh style is essential if you’re hoping to keep up appearances in the sneaker scene. So why not source inspiration from our styling team and take a look at how we’ve approached this season’s Nike Trainers below…

LOOK 1: 

Ideal for city dwellers – our first look bets on a relaxed wardrobe for urban settings. With the help of trailblazing label CP Company and all-American brand Ralph Lauren in the mix, this outfit takes on an effortless smart-casual stance. Boasting a double dosage of technical layers on top, including a short-sleeved CP Company polo shirt and CP Company arm lens jacket, the outfit further unfolds with comforting Ralph Lauren sweatpants.

Completing the look is a pair of Nike Air Max Light trainers; offering colourful pops to an otherwise monochrome teaming. Since these sneakers have been seldom-seen since the ‘80s, give them the attention they deserve through the streets.How to wear Nike trainers - Look 1

LOOK 2: 

If you’re more focused on turning up the dial for nostalgia, look two is a winner. Featuring Nike’s Air Zoom Alpha trainers, *cult classics from the ‘90s*, the outfit channels an elevated approach to dressing. It’s imagined with several layers stacked atop each other, including a Nudie sweatshirt, Albam shirt and cosy Folk sweatshirt. Although warmth shouldn’t pose a problem with this look, choose to add or remove layers depending on the temperature. Meanwhile, embrace this Zoom sneaker’s wavy uppers and retro status in your chosen stomping ground.

LOOK 3: 

Cast with a colour palette made up of only two tones, this black and white ensemble is undoubtedly a head-turner. Bringing urban accents into focus, the look aims to secure the streetwear scene with a range of logo-charged accessories. With Dsquared2’s ICON bag by your side, not only can all your essentials be kept close, but your status heightened thanks to the brand’s signature slogan. Adding to the clashing vision is a Ralph Lauren baseball cap, boxy Maison Margiela t-shirt and Champion sweatshorts.

Finished off with the power and stability of Nike’s Vapormax 2019 trainer on foot; we’re sound in the knowledge that this look will confidently pursue the city or summer festivals in equal measure.

LOOK 4:

Slick, smart and suitable for weekend wear – outfit four is fiercely trend aware. Taking to terrain with the energy of a springy Air Sole unit, Nike’s Air Tailwind 79 sneaker hits the floor with the Swoosh sported at all angles. Up top, a lightweight Paul Smith shirt and neutral Albam overshirt drape the body, teamed alongside versatile Norse Projects chinos. Signing off the sophisticated streetwear look is Moncler’s Theo pouch in olive, styled here across the body.

LOOK 5:

Wholly inspired by the game, this next look captures traditions from the hardwood and prepares to hit the tramac. Using an unusual approach to layering, the outfit invites a striking Nike jersey atop a cosy Ralph Lauren hoodie. Nike’s Air Force 1 ‘07 low trainers serve timeless appeal on foot, while the sporty styling is broken up with beige Norse Projects chinos. We reckon this one will give off duty dressing a whole new meaning.

LOOK 6:

Showcasing the sporty flair of the ‘90s, this final outfit looks to apparel icons of the past. Pounding the streets with nostalgia on foot, Nike’s Air Max 98 trainers inject old-school quality to the ensemble while Ralph Lauren’s half zip sweatshirt serves up a cosy layer for easy throwing on. Edwin’s ED55 63 jeans soften the athleisure theme with their clean-cut feel and turned-up cuffs.

Nike Air Max2 Light: Retro Runner Goodness

The Nike Air Max2 Light Returns For Spring Summer 2019

The Nike Air Max2 Light has found its way through our doors bringing with it impressive levels of vintage athletic appeal and of course some similarly gob smacking mechanics below. Looking for your next pair of hot weather kicks? Look no further.

Nike Air Max2 Light

From head to toe denim ensembles and frosted tips to the birth of the internet in America and successful attempts at cloning a sheep named Dolly, there is no denying that the ‘90s was a wild time not only for fashion, but for society in general. With significant events cropping up left, right and centre, fashion trends spinning out of control and genetically engineered barnyard animals to contest with Nike had to do something drastic to stay out in front and build upon the momentum they had created with the launch of the now legendary Air Max 1 in 1987.

Cue what could arguably be seen as the great glory days for the Beaverton born sportswear company as they set to work putting in place the foundations from which their footwear empire still stands to this day, releasing instant classic after instant classic and kicking things up a notch when it came to gas injected midsoles. Booting things off with the Air Max 90 the era lays claim to the crème de la crème of exposed air unit silhouettes boasting a fear-inducing numerical line-up that consists of heavy-hitters such as the Air max 95, Air Max 180, the 93, 97, 98 and of course the Nike Air Max2 Light.

Nike Air Max2 Light

Unleashed to the world in 1994 the Nike Air Max2 Light was the next iteration in Nike’s Light line-up which thanks to a clever composition of less weighty materials provided, as the name suggests, a much more lightweight frame when compared to its fellow air max brethren. Couple this with an arsenal of the latest fine-tuned advancements at it’s disposal and some purposeful adjustments to the core fundamentals of the now tried and tested air max technology and it’s easy to see why the trainer was an instant success.

In a move which could be seen as responsible for pioneering future tech, such as Tuned Air, and in an answer to the increasing demand for more responsive running footwear the Nike Air Max2 Light split its air infused midsole into different compartments, alternating the amount of pressure in each to reach new levels of underfoot support and performance enhancing ingenuity. But, aside from the abundance of complexities found at ground level, perhaps what made the Nike Air Max2 Light such a fan favourite was its multi-panelled uppers and robustly shaped dimensions which took on its array of bold colours with ease.

Nike Air Max2 Light

Returning just in time for summer with the addition of some cuhslon foam and a fresh lick of OG coloured paint, the Nike Air Max2 Light sticks to its original winning formula boasting lashings of contrasting colour blocked red mesh and suede uppers against a clean white leather base. Staying grounded with hits of black to the side swoosh and outsole the trainer is finished with retro branding to the tongue, subdued grey accents to the heel and a green tinged air unit.

Unlike many of the trends from the ‘90s most of us would all rather forget, this is one old school runner we are more than happy to see back in modern day rotations. The Nike Air Max2 Light is available online and in store at Aphrodite now.

Nike React Element 87 – The Future Is Now

Nike React Element 87

Combining the best in new age data driven design and old school sensibilities the Nike React Element 87 was created, much like many of its swoosh clad predecessors before it, with one simple goal in mind: to make running and walking more comfortable. Paying homage to what Nike defines as everyday athletes the trainer owes its futuristic geometric design to those of us who find ourselves running to catch the early morning bus, trawling the city streets in search of last-minute Birthday presents or pounding the pavements to complete daily errands.

Nike React Element 87 TrainersNike React Element 87 TrainersLaunched back in 2018 we got our first glimpse of the trainers in March when they found themselves debuting on non-other than the runways of Paris in a collaborative effort with Japanese streetwear label, Undercover. Not only did the trainers showcase some seriously crowd-pleasing stripped back uppers but gave a taste of what had been going on behind the scenes at the nerve centres of the Nike footwear laboratories when it came to the latest advancements in on foot technology.
Nike React Element 87 SneakersNike React Element 87 SneakersStarting out by pressure map testing the feet of individuals who walked heavily throughout the day the designers were able to identify the main points of fatigue and strain and subsequently set to work elevating it. In an approach that hinges almost on science-fiction, the special projects team began by mapping the results onto, the already world renowned, react foam, drilling holes at specific densities and depths to create a sole that not only offers improved support and an added number of comfort benefits but, enhanced the materials intrinsic shock absorption qualities with a unique, movement influenced wave design and grip-providing rubber outsole pods that tackles the perils of everyday urban wear one step at a time.

But it’s not all underfoot where these trainers shine with plenty of distinct characteristics present North of the midsole. Taking inspiration from both the original 1983 Nike Internationalist runner and the asymmetrical construction of the Nike Zoom Fly SP, the Nike React Element 87 pulls together a plethora of specifically chosen elements for an Avant Garde look that rests nicely on an indistinguishable line between, trail shoe, runner and everything in between.

Nike React Element 87 Trainers
Nike React Element 87 TrainersFeaturing a hiking-esque lacing system, exposed stitching and an enlarged Nike tick to the lateral side the two new colourways see pops of moss green and dusty peach highlight the sneakers distinct silhouette and idiosyncratic shape. Perhaps most notably however, aside from the serious brain power in the sole, is the trainers multi-layered uppers which boast hits of suede and a translucent TPE textile wrap that reveals the interior of the shoe and, in similarly ground-breaking fashion as the application of an exposed air unit to the midsole, challenges the expected norm when it comes to traditional footwear tropes. Rounding out the design other notable details include a sporty heel clip, reflective detailing and some vintage inspired gum hits below.

It appears when it comes to bold claims of the, ‘evolution of sneakers’ and the ‘future of footwear’ Nike not only seem to know a thing or two about what they are talking about but, have the foamdrilled holes to prove it. The Nike React Element 87 launches both in store and online at Aphrodite 02/05/19.
