In April, the Swoosh revisited the classic 1985 collection — which saw the then-nascent Dunk color-blocked for some of college basketball’s best teams. On Friday, May 13 the UNLV and Michigan Dunk Retro QS will be available in the Victoria shop. Both constructed of a buttery leather without official team logos. 8-13. $165.
Originally released in 2000, the Nike Air Presto became famous for its irreverent advertising, alpha sizing and ahead-of-its-time sock-like construction.
In the decade and a half since, the shoe has transcended performance running to become a sport style fixture. Now, 16 years after its introduction, Nike is updating the icon with new materials and technology. The result is the Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit.
The shoe’s signature one-to-one fit becomes even more profound through the use of Flyknit in the upper, which delivers stretch in the collar, ventilation in the toe and tongue, and support in the heel and underneath the toecap.
In another first for the Presto franchise, the Nike Air Presto Ultra Flyknit features a mid-cut collar, which lends a modern aesthetic. The TPU cage is reengineered to fit the Flyknit upper, while the ultra tooling with rubber in high contact wear areas delivers improved comfort and durability. Select sizes available now in Victoria. $215.

Available in limited quantity in Victoria on Saturday, May 7th. Sizes 8-13. $230.

Back in 2002, His Airness returned to the game of basketball for the third time while introducing a new model – the Air Jordan XVII. Jazz music and luxury were the two notable themes behind the Air Jordan XVII. The shoe was constructed to fit the needs of His Airness’ style of game that resembled the improvisation of Jazz music. Luxury was achieved by taking design inspiration from a first-class automobile. Black exotic leather sits at the top of the tongue and wraps around the heel of the shoe. The white upper is complimented by copper hits all throughout the shoe. To finish, the black and white outsole introduces hits of sport royal blue. The shoe makes its triumphant return in its original color way on Saturday, April 9th in Victoria.
This eye-catching Air Jordan 2 Retro Low pops with an all over Gym Red treatment. Premium leather uppers, eye stay, heel piece, midsole, outsole, and wings logo on the tongue reflect this tonal look. Available Saturday, April 2nd in Victoria. $215.
