Nike will introduce a newly redesigned Air Force model as part of its 25th year celebration. The Air Force 25, as it is called will capture 25 years of the Air Force 1’s history and infuse it with today’s technology to reintroduce it’s original function as a basketball sneaker. Designer Tracy Teague was at the Air Force 25th Anniversary media event in NYC to give the press an in depth look at the new Air Force 25’s. In these videos Tracy tells the press how he and his design team took the inspiration of the AF1 as the forefather of basketball shoe and transformed it to a new modern functional basketball shoe with new cushioning technology.

For three days, 11 Spring Street, known to others as the “Candle Building” will be open for an exhibit showcasing works and ornamentations overseen by the Wooster Collective.

So catch this exhibit if possible if you’re in the area, as it will be the spot’s last hoorah before it is converted to condos. It will be open from Dec. 15th to 17th with special artists panel discussions at 3pm on Sunday. You can read more about it at the New York Times.
M-65 Jackets seem to be in style this season. With new types of M-65 jackets popping up from other labels, Resonate has come up with their own rendition of the classic M-65. For this season, Resonate is doing a nylon version of this military outerwear, giving it the look of a down jacket. And to add to the uniqueness of the piece, Resonate studded the zipper and the zipper lining with Swarovski crystals. Don’t worry, if you don’t feel like blinging out, the zippers can be hidden by a fold feature when closing the jacket.

These new Nike Dunks are called the “Fileteado”. It is an homage to a type of painting that is seen throughout Buenos Aires. The painting style is mostly made up of floral images and swirl patterns. The kicks are extremely limited with only 50 pairs of the kicks made. They are said to be a Hyperstrike release and will quite possibly only be available in Brazil. But we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info.
