This Week's Heat

Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Blue Mirror’

Arguably one on Nike’s most recognizable silhouettes, the Air Foamposite One ‘Blue Mirror’ is closing out an incredible year for the silhouette and Nike.

The shell of the ‘Blue Mirror’ has been coated in blue and silver gradient mirror finish. Black detailing hits the tongue, laces, eyelets, liner, and heel. The dark details contrast well with the flashy shell of the Foams, and the silhouette is finished out by the black and grey carbon fiber plate and the icy outsole.

The Nike Air Foamposite One ‘Blue Mirror’ drops on Thursday, Dec. 31st, New Year’s Eve in stores and online. They will be available in Men’s for $275, so cop these to cap off a strong year. Check out Where to Cop for detail on where to pick these up.

Nike Kyrie 2 ‘Inferno’

Kyrie Irving is known for his unstoppable drive to the hole, and his ankle-breaking maneuvers around the hardwood. And now, Nike is engineered a sneaker, the Kyrie 2, to utilize Irving’s angular momentum and abuse of the laws of physics.

Often launching at a 40-degree angle during a crossover dripple in less than one-third of a second, Kyrie needs a sneaker capable of enduring high levels of stress and pressure. Nike introduced a curved midsole and outsole after observing Irving’s ability to angle his body low enough for the side of his sneakers to contact the floor. Engineered for maximum power output, the Kyrie 2 has exaggerated, curved midsole areas on the outside of the forefoot and inside of the heel. Designer Leo Chang describes the curve as feeling like your body jumping off a ball, so he increased traction by having the outsole pattern creep up the midsole. This multi-directional pattern permits Irving to fly off the edges at intense angles and speeds to penetrate the defense.

Dropping in a bold colorway, the Kyrie 2 ‘Inferno’ debuts for its first solo release on Jan. 1st, New Year’s Day. The front portion of the Hyperfuse upper is dressed in Bright Crimson, and it is contrasted up the tonal black back half of the sneaker. Draped across the midfoot, the strap sports a crimson and black graphic print. The midsole and outsole share the same Bright Crimson as the upper, and orange accents adorn the Nike Swooshes and Kyrie branding on the tongue and heel. The midsole contains a Zoom Air unit in the heel for responsive cushioning.

The Nike Kyrie 2 ‘Inferno’ will be available on Jan. 1st, in stores and online. They will be in Men’s for $125, grade schoolers’ for $100, preschoolers’ for $80, and toddlers for $55. Check out Where to Cop for info on which stores will be carrying Kyrie’s new kicks.

Nike LeBron XIII ‘Black Lion’

Coming of the mostly white LeBron XIII ‘Xmas’, the newest colorway for King James is the ‘Black Lion’.

The latest XIII is comprised of almost entirely black Hyperfuse and Hyperposite upper. The Hyperposite supports are matte black, and speckled with glossy black accents. Iridescent detailing is featured on the Swoosh, and the LeBron branding on the tongue. Staying true to the upper, the midsole is black, but the outsole, with its multiple Zoom Air units, has a gum finish.

The Nike LeBron XIII ‘Black Lion’ drops on Jan. 1st, New Year’s Day. You can cop these in Men’s for $200, grade schoolers’ for $160, preschoolers’ for $90, and toddlers’ for $60.
