Nike's taking it's Free philosophy to the next level with the Nike Free Inneva Woven ($TBA). This unique, limited-quantity kick features an intricate, 360º hand-woven system that interconnects laces with nylon webbing to wrap precisely around your foot. Other features include a dynamic lacing system, a paint splatter-style pattern on the midsole and outsole, and, of course, all the legendary comfort of a normal Nike Free.
Don't let their relative plain exteriors fool you — the new line of Vans LXVI Footwear ($70-$125) is the company's most advanced ever. Created without the limitations of traditional construction methods, the new line was designed for the future, and includes the Graph — the lightest Vans shoe ever — the Stat high-top, the mid-top Secant, the low Inscribe, and the boot-like Module. Nearly all of them feature new, more naturally-moving WaffleFlex outsoles, UltraCush Lite cushioning, and plenty of style.
Make your feet happy without wrapping them in garish colors with Nike Air Solstice Premium NSW Sneakers ($140). Inspired by classic Nike runners like the Tailwind, Vortex, and Safari, these subdued sneaks feature a suede and leather upper with a perforated toe and swoosh, a henna ankle collar, a hidden Air sole, NSW detailing on the tongue and back, a vintage-looking aged midsole, and a rubber grip outsole. Available in non-flashy black or grey colorways.
