nced for his collab) in a similar price range is on

James hasn't been shy about his desire to make the LeBron 15 both a high-performance sneaker Nike Air Huarache Womens (which can confirm) and a shoe people have in their everyday rotation. "Since [Nike designer] Jason [Petrie] and I started working Nike Blazer Womens on the [LeBron 15], we have always talked about how we not only want to have the top, top, top notch in performance, we want style, as well. We have a desire to create shoes that makes all people feel good when they put it on," he said back in September.Nike even debuted the LeBron 15 on the Kith runway the same week LeBron first wore them Nike Air Pegasus 83 Damen on court.  If there's any Adidas NMD Mujer partner that can make the LeBron 15 move, it's Kith, as Ronnie Fieg's store and brand have been hotter than ever this year. The Kith version of the LeBron 15 features a center zipper, embroidered flowers, and a strap embroidered with the phrase "LONG LIVE THE KING." These are the kinds of details that can take a sneaker from on-court favorite Nike Air Max 97 Womens to streetwear staple, but Nike isn't stopping there in driving the LeBron 15 home as a must-have sneaker. On December 22, the Swoosh and Nike Air Max 2017 Womens Fieg are dropping a documentary about LeBron. It’s the full package—and if Nike's lucky, the LeBron 15 will be the beginning of a new chapter.

They say if it ain't broke don't fix it, and there's perhaps no sneaker in history less broken than the Air Jordan 1. The classic high-tops aren't just classic Nike—they're an icon of pop culture. So when  it was rumored Nike Free Run 3.0 Womens that Nike called upon Virgil Abloh to bring his own style to the sneaker, Nike Air Presto Mujer fans immediately began to speculate on the infinite ways it could go wrong. Would he print his brand's construction stripes across the sole? Would he do them up in all Nike Roshe Run Womens gold like the Watch the Throne album cover? Instead, Abloh's approach was to simply deconstruct and Nike Air Max 90 Hombre Azul thus amplify the aspects of the shoe that made it great in the first place—and in doing so, he delivered the best sneaker collaboration of 20Nike Air Vapormax Womens 17.
There's something oddly DIY about Abloh's Jordans. Maybe it’s the way the shoelaces read "SHOELACES,” or the way they look almost turned inside out, or that they come with a red zip tie and four different color laces. The effect is to make you feel like you're getting a peek behind the curtain at a product that's not yet complete. On a different  sneaker (or nine) it might not work, but on something as iconic as the Jordan 1, seeing the work in progress is genuinely exciting.

Across multiple releases in the fall, the shoes were scooped up by only the luckiest of app users, workshop attendees, Nike Air Max 1 Mujer and Friends of Virgil. But make no mistake: Nike Air Max 2017 Hombre there was no shoe people wanted more in 2017 than these  Off-White Jordans, and their resale price reflects it. Despite the multiple releases over several months, the kicks still are fetching over $1, 0 at Flight Club. By comparison, not even Abloh's former boss Kanye West put out a shoe in 2017 that's been as desired on the aftermarket. And the other Air Jordan 1 "Chicago" (the color scheme Abloh referenced for his collab) in a similar price range is one that’s in mint condition despite first hit shelves in 1994. But over email, Abloh says he only notices the hype and resale value of his sneakers "out of peripheral vision."Whether he's paying attention or not, Abloh’s 2017 tsunami of hype will only help Nike moving forward. If there's any particular Nikes in need of a push, it's those made by Jordan Brand—which used to get a big  boost from onetime Nike endorser Kanye West—and the Off-White Nike Air Vapormax Femme x Air Jordan 1 feels like the Jumpman’s first real win in some time. That’s in part thanks to Abloh's own guerilla marketing campaign, in which he gave pairs to some of the biggest names in fashion and sports weeks before their first release. The likes of A$AP Rocky,
