Wishlist: Nike WMNS Air Max 1 “Foco Bonito”

Even though World Cup 2014 is finito, Brazil and it's culture continue to influence our favorite brands as they create new colorways for our favorite silhouettes. The folks at Nike tapped into some of that inspiration and have thus announced the official release of the Nike WMNS Air Max 1 “Foco Bonito.” While we saw the Foco back in July with it's Roshe Run "Pulso Forte" sister, we didn't see an official release date, until now. The "Foco Bonito" is the product of a collaboration between Nike and Brazilian-based couple Flavio Samelo and Jayelle Hudson who used the Nike Air Max 1 silhouette to capture Brazil's vibrant nature. You can get a closer look at the special edition sneakers below and make sure you nab the special edition sneakers on August 8th.

Wishlist: OG Nike Air Flight Huarache & Air Trainer Huarache

Fall is swiftly comin' and Nike does us a solid by reintroducing two models from their back catalog that bring both joy and a swift attention to August/September. The Nike Air Flight Huarache and the Air Trainer Huarache were originally designed to combine the functionality of sandals with the fit of neoprene water ski boots. Who knew!?! The re-release boasts the OG colorways, neoprene sockliners, and predominately white leather uppers with black/purple/blue accents on the Air Flights and green/purple accents for the Trainers.

You can nab this 90's throwback when the Air Flight Huarache and Air Trainer Huaraches hit stores and Nike Online on August 7th and September 26th, respectively.

Wishlist | Adidas Originals ZX Flux 2.0 - Neon & Tonal

The ZX Flux range from adidas Originals is one that I've kept my eye on for quite some time and now, with this look at the Fall/Winter 2014 ZX Flux 2.0 series, it might be high time that I get my ZX purchase on. The three stripe folks divided the release into two introductory packs: Neon and Tonal. The "Tonal" release looks to be no muss and no fuss, instead focusing on texture rather than color. Organic mesh adds a distinctive look with additional synthetic nubuck side paneling. Colorways include blue, grey and black. adidas-originals-zx-flux-2-0-tonal-neon-11

The "Neon" collection shifts from texture to, you guessed it, COLOR. Don't get confused, though. The Neon collection is all about silhouette simplicity with removal of the heel cage and the implementation of leather atop mesh. Color options include "Volt" and "Radiant Red" atop black.

Which collection do you like best? I'm definitely a fan of the Neon Volt and the Tonal Grey.

Take a look at the full offering up top and be sure to stay tuned for the official release date. I'm pretty sure these babies will be gone in a flash.
