This weekend marks the championship game of the 'Battle of the Boroughs' hoops competition, taking place on New York City's Rivington Courts in the Lower East Side. To mark this special event, Nike is releasing two limited edition models of their Air Max Hyperposite. The colorways are game royal/total orange-blue glow & crystal mint/metallic copper.  

A little nod to the Knicks? The royal/total orange-blue glow is available now. 

Here is the chocolate chip mint - oops ! I mean the crystal mint/metallic copper, to be released in November. 

Nike is giving out additional pairs via a Twitter promotion with the hashtag #NikeNYC. The championship game starts at 6pm on the Rivington Courts in New Yawk City on 8/26.

    Last year, Back to the Future Day came and went without a public release of the Nike Mags. About a year later and we plebs are getting a chance to finally own simulacra of the most iconic movie shoes short of Dorothy's ruby slippers.

    Nike have been slow to make the Air Max Zero part of their regularly updated sneakers. But the latest micro-run of Zeros is definitely something special. Most sneakerheads will instantly recognize the grey, white, and orangey-red colorway as Jeff Staple's signature.

    Just over a month after being revealed, the Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit have hit the shelves. The one-piece upper is super lightweight and the cored-out Ultra midsole removed even more weight.
