6) ACG Air Moc 3.0 ‘Black/Midnight Turquoise’
Heritage-inspired design elements are mixed with modern materials and construction methods which gives the ‘ACG Air Moc 3.0’ a sleek new silhouette. Its vintage style is inspired by the OG ‘Nike Air Footscape’ which means that it is also designed for those with wide feet. As seen in the photo, the shoes have a lateral strap for easy entry while the rubber heel has been reportedly revamped for enhanced traction.
5) Kyrie 6 X Concepts ‘Khepri’
Khepri Ra represents the movement of the sun as one of the important deities of Egyptian gods. The ‘Kyrie 6 X Concepts’ honours him with a pink colour scheme that relates to his daily renewal of the sun. He was also principally depicted as a scarab beetle which explains the detail on the strap.

Women’s Shox TL Nova ‘Black/Hyper Crimson’
Nike Shox technology’s birth dates back in 2000. The distinctive form of mechanical cushioning gives it a bold design and claims to offer a durable bounce for impact protection. Today, the iconic silhouette from 2003 is paired with a modernised upper with full-length Nike Shox in the ‘Women’s Shox TL Nova’. This will be released in two colourways – metallic silver with lime and violet accents (Metallic Silver/Lime Blast), and black with crimson accents (Black/Hyper Crimson).
3) Kobe V Protro ‘Chaos’
Nike’s iconic ‘Chaos’ colourway returns to the ‘Kobe V’ silhouette in a Protro version as an “ode to Kobe’s unrelenting drive.” These shoes are also said to be both lower to the ground and more responsive with upgraded cushioning.
2) Lebron VII ‘China Moon’
The Nike Lebron shoes are iconic for their on-court performance and street style design. This year, Nike launches ‘LeBron VII’ which is brought back in the OG ‘China Moon’ colourway – a colourway that used to be a China-only release. The limited-edition silhouette is now released globally in white and gold! Aside from that, the exposed Max Air unit makes it a crowd favourite within the LeBron James’ signature line.
