Summer has barely started, but in the world of sneakers, information is also the quicker, faster, the more the better, so Freshness is right here to bring you the first look at Nike Sportswear's Fall/Holiday 2010 collection to help you out with a little sneaker and wallet planning. For Fall/Holiday 2010, the footwear collection is heavily geared towards running, but new styles and new technology also take center stage as classic silhouettes get a little more technical, and hybrids give the upcoming collection a fresh splash of energy.
In terms of running silhouettes, the classic Nike Air Max family makes a rather sizable debut, since Air Max is easily one of the most popular running shoes worn. One of the new kicks introduced is the Nike Air Max Gen II, which is essentially a classic shoe transplanted with a modern mind. A more refined construction and hybridization mixing the Air Zoom Moire + with Air Max Nike makes this a classic but contemporary construct. Reflective gun metal midsoles are remixed with classic orange red accents with a black upper for a retro-futuristic look. Aside from the Nike Air Max Gen II, the perennial classic Air Max 1 has been reworked in new colorways for the sneaker purists who enjoy a good combination of shades on a can-do-no-wrong silhouette.
Taking a side step from running, Nike Sportswear has also revamped its street favorites, the Dunk High and the Air Force 1 High with both new technology and new colorways. For the first time, the Nike Foamposite technology is used on the AF1 High to created a more supportive, lightweight upper, that also enjoys a futuristic molded look, paired perfectly with a new transparent sole. Another notable pair of AF1 High is one with a rugged mountain boot sensibility--with round rope laces and and rich burgendy upper and perforated Swoosh. As for the Dunks, the colorways are slightly bolder with a bumble-bee yellow and black combination, and another with psychedelic rainbow midsoles.
Another point worth mentioning for the upcoming Fall/Holiday 2010 collection is Nike Sportswear's renewed attention for the ladies in terms of the shoes' performance. The Air Force 1 High for women has been remade with a lighter upper and named the Women Air Feather 1 High. It retains the same classic look as the Air Force 1 High, but its reduced weight allows the shoes to be easier on the ladies' feet. As for the Air Max Gen II, the shoes' weight has also been reduced to decrease stress on the women's feet.
