What Is The Nike Air Force 1 Mid Copy Paste Release Date? Price Predictions And Where To Buysrijeda , 02.03.2022.
Official images have surfaced of a new and unique Nike Air Force 1 Mid known as the "Copy Paste", leaving many fans wondering when might we see a release date for these sneakers.
While some Air Force 1's stick to the usual Nike aesthetic, some, like the "Copy Paste" and "3D Swoosh", push the envelope of what an Air Force 1 should look like, which is one of the reasons why the Air Force 1 remains so popular 40 years after its debut.
With that being said, we're focusing solely on the "Copy Paste" Mids in this article. So, without further delay, let's begin...
However, reports are suggesting that it's likely we'll see the "Copy Paste" Mids arrive at Nike.com and selected retailers soon, possibly even in the coming weeks.
This is just speculation at this stage though as nothing has been confirmed by the brand. Make sure you check back in with us as we'll be keeping you updated with all the latest news as and when it arrives.
The underlying aesthetic for the "Copy Paste" is essentially the same as any other Air Force 1 Mids, with light grey leather dressing the uppers while chunky, off-white midsoles feature underfoot.
Where these sneakers differentiate themselves though is through the bright white overlays which appear to be indiscriminately pasted over the grey base layer.
On the lateral sides, you get Nike Swooshes scaled up to overlap the already present and usual Swooshes towards the heel counter.
Also, the medial sides include 'NIKE' written in big, block text which gives an added retro feel to these sneakers to match the pre-yellowed midsoles.
The retro theme continues inside the shoes as you get hand-drawn and screen print graphics of the Nike Air logo, with each letter dressed in a different colour to contrast the overall monotone design.

Quartersnacks Has a Nike SB Dunk Low "Reverse Zebra" Colorway Dropping This Yearèetvrtak , 17.02.2022.
Collaborations continue to be the most exciting projects to spring from Nike (NYSE:NKE +0.63%) and its popular Nike SB division, and after having a successful streak of team-ups in 2021, it’s primed to build on that success in this new year. One partner that it will be reuniting with is New York City’s very own Quartersnacks for a fresh Nike SB Dunk Low “Reverse Zebra” colorway. This will serve as a follow-up to the two parties’ black variation that released back in September 2021.
The kicks are accessorized with the identical color palette from its predecessor, but it’s essentially been flipped in reverse. Black and white zebra patterns inspired by Debbie’s Zebra Cakes — a staple snack in skateboarding culture — appear in their same spots including the toe boxes, quarters and collars. Landing on top are overlays that are dialed to a pure white hue along with Swooshes that are swathed in a full black. Pops of red poke out through the tongue’s Nike branding and the “QS25” markings that are embroidered into the lateral heels in Nike NYC-inspired font. Additionally, this pair features a “Quartersnacks” spell out down the throat which we didn’t see on the 2021 makeup.
No release information has been announced just yet, but it’s likely that these could drop via Nike and skate shops in the coming months.
In case you missed it, Nike is reviving Scottie Pippen’s Air Flight Lite Mid “Olympic” colorway.
Nike’s “Since 1972” Collection Includes A VaporMax Plus With Mint-Colored Cages
As the third best-selling sneaker of 2021 in North America, the Nike VaporMax Plus continues being a go-to option for casual and savvy consumers alike. And while it celebrated its fourth year on the market in January 2022, the silhouette is helping the Swoosh celebrate its 50th birthday as “NIKE, Inc.”
For the uninitiated, the North American sportswear behemoth was founded under the name “Blue Ribbon Sports” in 1964. Over the next seven years, the brand’s co-founders Phil Knight and Bill Bowerman helped Japan’s Onitsuka Tiger sell its products in the U.S. while they developed their own track shoes. At the end of both parties’ agreement in 1971, BRS became Nike and launched two models – the Moon Shoe racing flat and Nike Cortez – that helped solidify it as a business and player in the sport of running from 1972 onwards. There’s little that connects the newly-surfaced VaporMax Plus to its aforementioned predecessors outside of the “Since 1972” stamped on its sock-liner. The predominantly white color palette works in-tandem with shades of green found at the TPU profile cages and sole unit to create an ensemble seldom (if ever) seen across Nike Running heritage. It’s very likely, however, that more Air Max and Sportswear models will appear with a similar arrangement as springtime inches closer.
Enjoy official images of the pair here below, and expect a Nike.com launch in the coming months.

Cette paire de Nike Dunk n'est pas passée inaperçue aux Jeux Olympiques de Pékin
Les chaussures portées par les joueurs de curling aux Jeux Olympiques sont en général assez quelconques : la plupart d'entre eux concourent avec des modèles équipés de semelles en Téflon, fabriquées par des spécialistes comme Goldline Curling ou Balance Plus. Jusqu'à ce que Matthew Hamilton viennent chambouler cette tradition.
Lors des Jeux Olympiques d'hiver 2018 à PyeongChang, l’international de curling - qui, en tant que membre de l'équipe des États-Unis, a contribué à décrocher la première médaille d'or de son pays dans ce sport - avait renversé la tendance. Il était ainsi apparu sur la glace dans une paire de Nike PG3 "Nasa Blue Apollo 15". Les baskets orange, argent et bleu sur le thème de l'espace avaient été spécialement modifiées pour le curling et étaient, pour la première fois, équipées de semelles spéciales. Une paire de baskets classiques n’a en effet pas sa place sur la piste et aurait donc empêché Hamilton de décrocher une médaille d'or.
Pour les JO d'hiver 2022, qui battent actuellement leur plein à Pékin, le champion américain de curling a réitéré son geste. Le sixième jour des Jeux, lors du match Round Robin masculin contre l’équipe de Suède, Hamilton est apparu sur la piste chaussé d’une paire de Nike SB Dunk “What The Paul”.
Les baskets en question sont sorties en mai 2021 et ont rencontré un succès immédiat (vous pouvez encore les trouver au triple de leur prix d'origine sur des sites de revente comme StockX). La Nike SB Dunk Low What The P-Rod rend ainsi hommage aux collaborations passées de Nike SB et à la sortie de la série signature P-Rod, réalisée en collaboration avec le célèbre skateur Paul Rodriguez. Sa tige dépareillée mêle caoutchouc et cuir à motifs, mesh et daim, tandis que la signature de Rodriguez se retrouve sur la languette.
La paire d’Hamilton, adaptée à la glace, a été conçue en collaboration avec Project Blitz, un magasin de sneakers de Los Angeles qui compte Beyoncé, Drake et Jay-Z parmi ses clients. Fondé par le vendeur de sneakers Andre Ljustina, Project Blitz opère depuis un lieu tenu secret et propose une sélection unique de sneakers originales rares, ainsi que des versions customisées. Exemple : un prototype de la Nike Air Yeezy 1, qui aurait été portée par Kanye West, a été vendue à 1,8 million de dollars l’an dernier.
Avant les Jeux Olympiques, quand ESPN a demandé à Hamilton ce qu’il emportait avec lui, il a répondu : “Des chaussures de curling complètement dingues ! Les gars de Project Blitz m'ont vraiment aidé. Il s’agit des Nike SB Dunk Low What the P-Rod. C'est la chaussure parfaite pour un gars comme moi !”
Nike SB Dunk Low "Paris" Sells for Over $130,000 USD
To sneakerheads, the Nike (NYSE:NKE +0.63%) SB Dunk Low “Paris” needs no introduction, but for those unaware, it’s an incredibly limited — with a rumored 150-200 pairs in existence — sneaker made by Nike SB for its 2002 “White Dunk” traveling exhibition that celebrated its arrival in Paris. Aptly, it is adorned with artwork by the late French expressionist artist Bernard Buffet, and no two pairs are the same, which only makes this pair even more desirable and rarer.
Now, the London-based reselling store Proxyeed has confirmed that it has sold a pair for “around £100k,” or roughly $133,000 USD. Paired with a few other shoes, the mystery customer’s total bill came to £112,300 GBP (or exactly $150,000 USD). In short, it is believed that this particular Nike SB Dunk Low “Paris” is, according to Proxyeed’s owner Ryan Thomas Symes, “the world’s most expensive private shoe sale ever, excluding game-worn Jordans or signed shoes.”
Symes exclusively told HYPEBEAST how the deal went down. “We were negotiating with the customer on the shoe. He wanted to pay one price, we wanted him to pay another. We were quite far off, so we decided to do rock, paper, scissors for it. We won the rock, paper, scissors so he paid up.”
The sale goes to show not only is the Nike SB Dunk wave alive and well, but the reselling industry is also as rife and lucrative as ever. Proxyeed carries a wide range of sneakers, from everyone’s favorite YEEZY’s to pairs it flogs for 99p on Saturdays. Take a look at its Instagram post above for more information on the sale.

Frame’s ‘Habibi’ Nike SB Dunk Is Here. Where Did It Come From?subota , 18.12.2021.
The pearl divers of Dubai now have their own sneaker. The falcon racers, the sheikhs, the skateboarders looking for a scene, and the budding hypebeasts of the glittering city in the United Arab Emirates have a shoe that they can claim. The Frame x Nike SB Dunk Low "Habibi," dressed in the UAE's national colors and crammed with details connecting it to the country, is the Arabian Peninsula's first major export in hype footwear. Like so many products and people of Dubai, it comes with a complicated story of origin and identity.
Where is it from? The shoe is a collaboration between Nike SB (Nike's skateboarding division) and Frame, a trio of businesses in the Dubai Design District that consists of a boutique, a ramen shop, and a cafe. Frame was founded as a "Japanese lifestyle culture shop" in 2017 by Peter Ahn, an expat from South Korea. He designed the "Habibi" Dunk as an homage to his adopted home. Fittingly, the sneakers released first at Frame on Dec. 2, coinciding with UAE National Day. While bakeries punctured croissants with miniature flags and beaches were dotted with bigger ones, Frame's Dunk arrived as another red, white, black, and green symbol of the holiday.
The Frame x Nike SB Dunk Low "Habibi" went global on Saturday, Dec. 5, releasing at SB accounts worldwide to the same kind of fanfare that has accompanied other specialty Dunks in this year of renewed interest in the retro silhouette. It is a reversal of the traditional flow of sneaker ideas between the Middle East and the rest of the world, a rare moment for the region to give something of its culture through shoes. But its roots aren't entirely Emirati. So where is it from?
The sneaker started in Amsterdam, where Ahn first designed it in early 2019. He was there for a Nike event called the Club 58 Summit, a meeting of SB retailers from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa that featured a Shark Tank-style competition where shop owners got to pitch ideas for their own SB collaborations. Getting your own sneaker can literally put your store on the map, transforming it from local spot to destination. It's a dream scenario for owners like Ahn, who sometimes spend years trying to convince Nike their clout is sufficient to warrant a collab. At the competition in Amsterdam, he had just a couple of hours.
