Tuesday Briefing: Palace Spring/Summer 2019, a new adidas ZX model, Nike retros and a new ISPA React Runner

News recap from February 15 to February 18

Following President's Day weekend in the U.S., sad news hit of Karl Lagerfeld's passing today. The icon behind Chanel and Fendi is the inspiration for many, if not all, in the fashion industry. He will be dearly missed.

News from the weekend include many upcoming Nike releases, a new adidas Originals silhouette for its Consortium lineup and numerous Spring/Summer 2019 lookbooks.

Nike Zoom Rookie "Galaxy"

Originally released back in 2012 alongside the Nike Air Foamposite One, the Zoom Rookie basketball sneaker will make its return in "Galaxy" form this weekend to the tune of $220. The space theme includes the galactic print on the upper and spacesuit-inspired pull tabs on the tongue and heel. You can purchase the sneakers on SNKRS come February 22. 

Nike Free Run 2 Doernbecher Freestyle "Mackenzie Short"

Celebrating the 15th anniversary of its Doernbecher Freestyle program, Nike has been bringing back silhouettes from the archives. Designed by Mackenzie Short in 2011, this iteration of the Free Run 2 will once again be available on February 20 for $100 on SNKRS and look to inspire another generation of kids.
