New Nike Spring Releases


  From top to bottom and left to right we feature a  Hachi Textile (a new version of Nike's Toki) an amazing colorway of the Air Flytop, the classic free in a greyscale and finally a great colorway of the new Lunareclipse.  Stop by to try a pair on!

Nike VNTG Tailwind

  The Nike Air Tailwind '79 is very important to Nike history for one big reason: It's the first shoe to utilize Nike Air.  The Tailwind actually debuted Nike's Air technology in Hawaii during the Honolulu Marathon in 1978 and then officially released in 1979. This technology was discovered by NASA on how to contain air in a plastic container.  You can grab this piece of sneaker history in a clean Grey/Blue colorway with the vintage treatment now at Shop412.

Adam Richman (Man Vs. Food) Pops In!

We were lucky enough to be helping a customer yesterday and it turned out to be Adam Richman.  What usually is about a 15 minute shopping experience quickly turned into a 3 hour chat fest.  He is probably one of the most down to earth people we've ever met.  BROOKLYN in the building.

Nike Air Flow 2nd Release

"Designed by Bruce Kilgore, who’d already made a name for himself with the Air Force 1, the Air Flow was first introduced to the world in 1989. The shoe featured a minimalist upper crafted from lightweight, flexible neoprene, and an outsole equipped with flex grooves for responsive cushioning. The revolutionary design would act as a precursor to beloved styles such as the Hurache, Presto and Free, and the original vivid colorways expertly captured the spirit of the go-go ’80s. Those OG styles quickly sold out when they were retroed earlier this year, so fans of the shoe in simple, brightly rendered hues should look forward to this pair in Volt Cherry arriving next spring. They’re the perfect example of a retro sneaker in a new colorway that feels comfortingly familiar." -Freshness Mag
