Black and Gray Hit the Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT

As several monochromatic colorways have surfaced on variations of the Air Jordan 1, including the Air Jordan 1 Mid and Air Jordan 1 Elevate, the Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT is receiving its own grayscale look. For those unfamiliar with the silhouette’s unique attributes, the Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT debuted in 2020 and offers a modern take on the classic sneaker with a layered construction and Zoom cushioning.In this black and gray rendition, a gray leather base on the upper kicks things off while the Swooshes utilize negative space with its hollowed-out space revealing a darker gray. Black overlays run throughout the upper in various forms of suede, providing additional texture to the look. The silhouette’s unique collar and tongue are constructed of a foam that emphasizes comfort and adds to the deconstructed styling. Lastly, the standard Air Jordan 1 sole unit is packed with Zoom technology as its white midsole rests atop a gray and black rubber outsole.Nike has yet to share a specific release date for this black and gray Air Jordan 1 Zoom CMFT. However, expect it to hit shelves later this year via Nike and select retailers at a price of $140 USD.Elsewhere in the world of footwear, the Air Jordan 1 Low “Triple White” launches later this week.

New Balance 2002R Emerges With “Rust Oxide” Uppers

Aligning with trendy collaborative partners and pushing the right silhouettes has paid off for New Balance in recent years. Once the brand finds that a model resonates with the masses, it goes all in on that shoe and keep its releases coming consistently. One example is the New Balance 2002R which has had quite the eventful 2022 in terms of new launches, and it has just been unveiled in a new “Rust Oxide” colorway.The palette of this latest iteration is reflective of the upcoming Autumn season. Mesh underlays and buttery suede overlays are prepared with its titular tone, while the overlays that hug the toe boxes and collars are done up in a darker orange hue. Slivers of silver poke out through the N logos and the heels for added flair as well. Down below, the midsole piece comes split between creamy heels and angelic mid-foot/forefoot sections while the exposed foam units on the rear are dyed in a dark orange. These aren’t quite as playful or hyped as Salehe Bembury’s “Peace Be The Journey” makeup from 2020, but they could be a good consolation prize.Look for New Balance and other retailers to launch these in the coming weeks for $140 USD.Additionally, check out the recent New Balance 2002R “Calm Taupe” installment.

John Geiger and Nike Have Settled Their Trademark Infringement Lawsuit

After a year-long battle independent designer John Geiger and Nike have settled their trademark infringement lawsuit. Per a post on Geiger’s Instagram, the battling parties have come to an agreement that “allows John Geiger to continue building his brand while also respecting Nike’s intellectual property rights in its iconic Air Force 1 trade dress.” Geiger will modify the design of his GF-01, a shoe that Nike claimed infringed upon the registered trade dress of the Air Force 1, and the resolution includes a consent judgment — an agreement that resolves a dispute between two parties without admission of guilt or liability on either side. View this post on InstagramA post shared by John Geiger (@johngeiger_)Nike first brought suit against Geiger and footwear manufacturer La La Land in August 2021, stating that the La La Land-produced GF-01 sneaker “[capitalized] on Nike’s reputation and the reputation of its iconic shoes” and that Geiger’s brand was attempting to create “confusion in the marketplace.” Geiger responded with a statement of his own, saying “I’m preparing to fight this battle for all creators and underdogs fighting the same uphill battle as me. I’ve been very clear throughout the two years of developing and selling the GF-01 that this silhouette was inspired by Nike and also made sure that anyone purchasing the shoe is aware it is a designer shoe crafted with higher-end materials and quality, along with my trademark and changes to the silhouette.” Geiger was open about the trials and tribulations of the lawsuit over the course of the last year, often taking to his social media platforms to fill his followers in on the case’s progression — and defiantly fire shots at Nike. He was no stranger to marketing the trial either, hiring the former general counsel for of YEEZY Apparel to lead his defense team and making NFTs that included digital copies of court documents. In February of this year, Geiger filed a countersuit of his own — stating that it was unlikely consumers would confuse the two models. He was also was granted a separate US trademark for the GF-01 in June. View this post on InstagramA post shared by John Geiger (@johngeiger_)Geiger’s company hasn’t been the only one to feel the legal wrath of the Swoosh this decade: Nike has also sued StockX for their “Vault” series of NFTs, gone after MSCHF for the “Satan Shoes” and taken umbrage with Drip Creationz’ customs as well, all in an effort to protect the intellectual rights of their most famous products as they continuously enhance their DTC strategy and make further moves into the metaverse.The redesigned GF-01 will likely be revealed soon, but in the meantime be sure to catch up all of the freshest kicks coming your way by checking out the latest installment of our weekly Best Footwear Drops series.
