mercer storefront nike Nike 21 Mercer to Re open on June 11th

If you’re an NYC area sneakerhead, you’ve no doubt felt the recent absence of Nike Sportswear’s flagship spot 21 Mercer in SoHo. The good news is that they’re coming back after the brief closing as promised. What’s interesting though is that the announcement sort of suggests that the space will be totally reworked and will return with a whole new identity – they mention on social media that they will “re-launch this channel as part of a brand new Nike concept”. Whatever happens with next week’s event, we have a feeling that some special sneakers will be on hand. Let us know if you’ve got any guesses in the comments and stay tuned to find out what goes down at the 21 Mercer re-opening event.

New Balance Suing Karl Lagerfeld for Sneaker Ripoff

new balance sues karl lagerfeld New Balance Suing Karl Lagerfeld for Sneaker Ripoff

New Balance is the latest sneaker company to bite back against luxury brands ripping off its designs. According to TMZ, the brand is suing German fashion lord Karl Lagerfeld over his liberal usage of the NB aesthetic, specifically the side letter hit, on a $360 pair of Lagerfeld trainers. The turn of events suggests that sneaker companies aren’t exactly appreciative of the sort of high fashion rip approach that’s been rampant lately in the luxury sneaker world (Common Projects, Givenchy, and Céline are all guilty of this as well). You have to also wonder whether or not New Balance will be chasing down the likes of Hender Scheme, who have a sneaker that’s basically just a $900 NB 1300 without the logo. See some of the evidence after the click and let us know if you think sneaker companies should be a little bit more lenient as far as luxury borrowings of their designs.
