Nike Air More Money "USA"

June is almost over, and the 4th of July is right around the corner. Nothing’s more American than red, white, and blue—or cold hard cash—and Nike knows this. Therefore, they’ve got two new Air More Moneycolorways ready to go for the annual celebration of independence: a vibrant red and a dignified blue. The red pair features an all-red leather and mesh upper, with black accents arriving on the laces, collar, heel tab, and the shroud’s branding. The blue pair features the same tonal leather and mesh look on the upper, but swaps the black accents for white laces and a tonal navy collar/heel tab, while the lace shroud’s branding arrives in white and red. Both pairs feature a white midsole, dollar sign embroidery on the heel, and contrasting Air Max units. For a final touch, both pairs also come with a spare set of shrouds devoid of any branding if you’re gunning for a more subtle look. Both of these 4th-ready More Moneys are available now at Finish Line for $160 USD. via

After a remixed take on the classic “Scream Green” colorway of the Huarache, Nike is adorning the classic Tinker Hatfield-designed runner with a unique combination of a rainforest green and a bright orange. The shoe’s neoprene upper features a rainforest-style green as the base color, with accents arriving on the midfoot, collar, and tongue’s logo patch. A white toe cap and lacing system add further contrast, and the shoe’s sock-like heel is held together with a two-tone black and bright orange take on the plastic midfoot/heel cage that the Huarache has became world-renoun for. A simple white midsole and black outsole complete the colorful retro look.
