Nike 2021 general thread

I’m a big Nike fan, I’m always excited to see what they come up with, but I’ve learned to just wait for their merchandise. It generally goes on sale after what ever tournament was just played.

I like Nike they have always been right up there leading in design. I have my share of Nike stuff. Recently I purchased some Duc clothing and I really like the design and the quality and fit of the clothing. I will probably buy more at some point.

The beige colorway with the marble countertop look is horrific. Actually, beige in general is just a bad color choice.

Do some of you all have access to the new Nike gear? I haven’t seen any photos of the upcoming apparel for the AO.

The beige shorts look like some old parchment that somebody spilled water on.

And the shirt design? I mean, maybe it could work with better color choices, but leave it to Nike to throw random colors together like always.

Is Nike even trying anymore?
Yes and no. This year’s design was more ‘inside the box’ than ‘outside the box’ They tapped into the heritage of their own A.C.G line (All Conditions Gear) and mixed it up. Last year was something like a project for a local artist. Different, but was a hit and miss for some.

Ones with a belt can’t be tennis shorts. Probably Nike sportswear.
It’s Nike Court shorts for AO21/SP21. They are taking notes from their A.C.G line which has shorts with the woven belts. Would you rather have that, or cargo pockets on the sides?

Don’t want either on a tennis court. Belt flapping around while you’re playing? I’ll pass. Cargo pockets? Hard pass.
Off the court? Now that’s a distinct possibility.

Agree completely. If I was camping or hiking, sure I'll wear that stuff. But to pay "homage" to the ACG line in tennis wear? Like I said, they're seemingly not even trying. And I wear Nike gear, btw. But also some adidas gear, too.
 
Umm....is Nike going to have normal shorts in their AO/Spring 2021 line?

Woops, nevermind. Just noticed the new collection on TW's Nike page.

The photos of the all white VX/XI sample on the big auction site is wacky with the sole of the X and the upper of the XI. Upper looks cool though, hopefully the final midsole/outsole in the production model will be great. Fingers crossed.

For Nike Vapor Pro, it will probably be discussed around June, as vapor nxt will be on sale in this month.
 
I dig the camo-type shorts, especially the sand coloured. Don’t care about the strap or the cargo pockets.

All the rest is making my eyes bleed, and not in a good way;)

Not too sure about the marbleised look... that is so late 90’s/early 00’s.
lol - I had a car with a customised marbleised front end back in the days - I thought it was acceptable/cool back then, but no anymore in the 2020’s.

Not sure if I’m more surprised how ugly they are or the fact that actually made something uglier than the ao20 splotch design :-D

Challenge court '91 - '92
The reprints Agassi shoes and Nike oscillate of a few years ago have been exhausted ... we hope they will reconsider and surprisingly bring some other models back to life again this year

Yeah, its very weird. Not sure why Nike keeps trying to make brown a tennis color.
Because not everyone likes neon everything and red/blue get old after a while? And when you are not pale as a lighthouse tan/beige actually looks good on most people.

What the heck differentiates a "tennis color" from just a "color" anyways?
