Via our Berlin PR contacts we get the news of an event in our hometown-let alone a place we've played B-Ball at-Basketball City on Pier 36-right next to the Chelsea Piers...

What's New @ NIKE:

The very light seamless (wow) -with an upper comprised of one piece of woven polyester. Very eco too as this eliminates waste.

Racers weigh in at 5.6 ounces...with Trainers (we assume more cushioning)-clocking in at 7.6 ounces-on sale in July.

For now, a limited edition- HTM Flyknit Collection (a HTM racer and 2 versions of the HTM Trainer) are on sale now  ($160-$175).- a collab between Nike's Parker- and Hiroshi Fujiwara and Nike design guru-Tinker Hatfield---
FYI: Colors of USA Track&Field team

Barefoot shoe looking, imo-we were told there is support inside- but the fit is supposed to be socklike. We are look forward to trying these out-as they are priced similarly to our Newtons. Available at the 21 Mercer Street Store-NYC and we read online-at the 1948 London Store soon...
