Sole Fresh


NIKE invited The Vanguard back into the newly minted NIKEiD Loft to experience the premium services that Nike+ members can receive at the NIKEiD Loft throughout NBA All-Star Week. In this private 1:1 design session we had our boys from XO in the building as well as honorary Vanguard members AJ Saudin & Dalton Pompey alongside expert NIKEiD designers and staff from Nike HQ. The experience was catered by Momofuku with music provided by our very own KillaxKels on the ones and twos. On 5 silhouettes that Nike’s brought out of the vault to re-master the future we were able to work with iconic graphics combinations, All-Star colour schemes, colour-shift material options and more putting our own personality into the mix.

In between bites of food and banging beats we grabbed a seat with the good people from @JasonMarkk for some premium SNKR Services to keep our kicks fresh out in these streets. As the night ended, and to keep our kicks straight The Vanguard were gifted Limited Edition lace lock sets which came in silver and rose gold to commemorate the All-Star Game being in Toronto building on an additional layer of customization to our newly minted kick creations. If you were lucky enough to reserve a slot, you too can join the expert NIKEiD designers for a personal consultation and unleash your creativity on the LeBron XIII Premium, the Kobe XI Elite Premium, the KD 8 Premium and the Air Force Premium.

Welcome to The Vanguard.
