NIKE KOBE 11 ELITE ‘WOLF GREY’ MAY 27 AT 10 AM ET

GIRLS’ JORDAN RETRO 5 LOW ‘METALLIC SILVER’ – APRIL 9 AT 10 AM ET

Nike spent four years researching, engineering, and designing Flyknit technology, and it shows in the Flyknit Racer. It’s ultra-light (5.6 ounces) and is bound by a one-piece upper for a non-restrictive and locked-in feel. The ‘Pink Flash’ color scheme is reminiscent of a summer sunset, and you can get it today. Men’s $149.99.

NIKE AIR PENNY II ‘VARSITY ROYAL’ – APRIL 8 AT 10 AM ET

This shoe was originally part of the Vegas-exclusive ‘Penny Pack’ released in 2011. The ‘Varsity Royal’ color scheme makes for a dynamic, throwback style. The icy translucent outsole provides the cherry on top. Pay homage to Hardaway in his Air Penny II today. Men’s $159.99.
