One of Nike‘s most minimal silhouettes, the Free Sockracer, is now available in a new Black/University Gold-Photo Blue colorway for spring. The now 28-year-old silhouette gets some fresh life thanks to the Black and Photo Blue mesh sock upper and the University Gold buckles. The white Nike Free 5.0 sole updates the classic silhouette while still keeping the spartan character with the shoe.
Designated with Nike’s SP suffix, which stands for Special Projects, the Swoosh has just released this limited run Air Max 97. The kicks don a camo adorned upper (extending to the midsole and even the box), which being labeled as “Italian Camouflage” in dark khaki and golden tussah khaki. Solidifying its Italian inspiration, the Italian flag is placed on the insole. Tracking down a pair may prove difficult as they just landed at Milan based Slam Jam as an “exclusive Quickstrike” with no pairs remaining available online. We will keep you posted if these ever release beyond Slam Jam.

Nike used the striking contrast of fresh mint and brooding black throughout this sizzling number, finishing of the colour concerto with accents of pink flash through the insole, outsole and midsole.

By far the most famous American Mid-Century designers, Charles and Ray Eames legacy can still be found in tastefully furnished appartments all over the world. A standout piece is without doubt the Shell Chair. Originally introduced in 1948 by Herman Miller it initially featured a molded fiber glass shell, which was later, however, replaced by a more-eco friendly yet less classy looking plastic. Now 65 years after its initial inception the Shell Chair is made available in a refined wooden veneer version, of course with your choice of three classic bases: wire (“Eiffel Tower”) in chrome or black, 4-leg in chrome or black, or wood dowel in one of three finishes.
