Tales from the Kitchen: Nike Free

The story of Nike Free goes back a long way. Follow Nike Innovation Director Tobie Hatfield along his journey to create it, and get a glimpse into the Nike Innovation Kitchen.



The Nike Lunaracer+, the OG Lunar runner, returns in a brand new colorway. A Pure Platinum/Treasure Blue-Volt makeup is just as bright as it sounds offering a platinum mesh upper complete with treasure blue branding. Volt laces, lining, and Flywire add to the sensory overhaul on this bright and light sneaker.

Available at Nice Kicks.


Having been recently revived and given a hi-tech overhaul as part of Nike’s ACG line, the original Vengeance jogger is set to pound the pavement once more. OG heads will appreciate the Vintage edition in ever crisp red/black/white, while those seeking a little more sizzle will warm to the Vengeance Plus in fizzy neon volt with a bust of speckle on the midsole.

Nike : Footscape Woven Freemotion ‘Gingham’


Due for release January 2011

Nike : Lunar Orbit+

“The Nike Lunar Orbit+ lands as a fresh introduction for the Nike Sportswear Spring ‘11 collection. Inspired by the premium materials and meticulous fabrication of the original Nike Tech Pack jackets, this shoe features a breathable 3-layer mesh upper, asymmetrical zip, and raised geometric upper to increase air flow with limited surface contact on the foot.

Nods to the tech pack include welded bemis tape, coated zippers, smooth premium construction and superior comfort. This technical approach to footwear design represents an evolution for NSW as it pushes the boundaries on advanced craftsmanship combined with minimalist design aesthetic. Designer Nate VanHook brought his expertise in wetsuit design to this project, introducing a technical 3-layer mesh upper combining liner, EVA foam and a top-layer mesh.

No detail was overlooked, with a lazered sock liner to increase breathability, top-of-the-line Nike Running mid/outsole tooling, reflective seam seals, and GPS coordinates for Beaverton, Oregon etched along the asymmetrical zipper seam.”

Reebok x Stash x Packer’s Shoes : PUMP Graphlite

Quote from Mike Packer via Sneaker Freaker

“Rounding out some of the project with Reebok, we wanted to bring back the Graphlite Pump — a runner that over time has gotten a bit of shine, but not as much as we had thought.  Nothing really clicked until we thought about giving the shoe an outdoor type treatment.  The color pallette and treatment that Stash has given over the years to many of his projects seemed like a natural but the only way it made sense was to do it as a co-lab with Stash and doing it proper all the way through.
You say you can’t judge a book by it’s cover, and that is what this whole process was about. Until about 18 months ago, our paths have never crossed professionally. From the outside looking in, all you really know is what you see on the blogs and draw conclusions from that. It wasn’t until the idea was floated to Stash thru a mutual acquaintence, that the project took hold.  From day one, the mutual respect was there and what has flowed has been a relationship that takes an iconic under the radar classic and gives it energy to many more projects down the road….
