Coming Soon: Nice Kicks x adidas Consortium NMD Runner PK


Nice Kicks has teamed up with adidas Consortium to release an exclusive NMD Runner PK, highlighting the modern utility and nomadic spirit of the recently debuted silhouette. The plush sock-like upper features Primeknit construction and sits atop a full-length Boost cushioning midsole, as distinct block support wedges provide the shoe with a memorable and disruptive look from afar. To celebrate the irreverent heritage of the historic Haight District, the shoe brings about a detailed graphic inspired by vintage concert posters and local art. Utilizing a fully sublimated red and black vivid tie-dye Primeknit upper, the sneaker takes on color while retaining its identifiable initial block-read. In addition to the shoe’s detailed PrimeKnit upper, you’ll also find custom logo badging along the tongue and our wordmark icon running down the bold heel tab. Look out for the official release coming this Saturday, February 20th.

Coming Soon: Nice Kicks x New Balance 1600 “Grand Anse”

Perhaps the biggest sneaker blog in the industry, Nice Kicks has teamed up with New Balance for another stylish take on a retro runner. Based on the streetwear favorite CM1600 silhouette, the sneaker features a plethora of details. Maintaining a mostly blue aesthetic as a nod to the Caribbean beach paradise that founder Matt Halfhill hails from, the sneaker features hues of blue in mesh and nubuck, alongside contrasting grey leather overlays. Highlights from the shoe include perforated holes at the mesh areas for added ventilation, the sea gravel-inspired tongue, and the special speckled laces. All of this rests atop New Balance’s standard Abzorb midsole in white with blue accents and blue rubber outsole. Keep your eyes peeled for this collaborative release coming soon.

Adidas Campus 80’s “Back to Campus” Collection – 9/9/11

A trifecta of sorts, three well-respected lifestyle boutiques recently worked with iconic, adidas Originals brand to craft their own interpretations of the Campus 80 for a “Back to Campus” pack.  Major in DC, Shoe Biz in San Francisco and Major in DC teamed up for three colorways inspired by campus life and university living.  For Shoe Biz, inspiration was drawn from the tanford colorways and made up in a rough-suede cardinal upper.  Nicely complimentary off-white three stripes complete the silhouette.  Texas’ own, Nice Kicks worked up a “Game Day” colorway in burnt orange inspired by the Lone Star State. Our homies over at Major in DC grabbed color palettes from the Georgetown colorways overlaying a nice navy blue long-haired suede.  

All three colorways will be available starting September 9, 2011, in-store at our Moreland ave. location and online in our online shop.  Retail is set at $88 a piece.
