First Look: Nike Blazer Mid 77 - 'Christmas'

This sneaker leans heavily on signature red and green palettes. The latter shade outfits the majority of the construction, polished atop the leather profile and toe box while matted and textured on the overlays, a set of panels whose woven pattern directly nods to ugly sweaters.

 

Elsewhere, red furnishes the Swoosh along the side just as it does the branded tongue patch, while heels finish entirely covered with a fur similar to what adorns Santa’s hat.

 

The Nike Blazer Mid 77 - 'Christmas' drops 2 December at selected retailers.

First Look: Nike Women's Dunk Disrupt - 'Dusty Pink'

This sneaker is dressed in a muted dusty pink shade. The uppers are crafted from technical mesh with leather overlays to represent the signature look of the Dunk itself. Nike’s signature Swoosh logo runs across both the lateral and medial sides for a clean branded look, with the foam exposed tongue also displaying a logo tab and another at the heel tab.

Beneath the feet, the bulky white midsole gives this pair a fashion-forward look, with Nike Air technology concealed within to ensure that these are more than capable of dealing with extended periods of wear. A gum rubber outsole rounds off the look perfectly.

The Nike Women's Dunk Low Disrupt in 'Dusty Pink' drops, Saturday 21 November at selected retailers.
