Those clever Nike people over in Oregon are constantly working to improve the functionality and efficiency of their products, to aid the athlete in hitting new targets. The latest innovation is in the fabric used to construct their Tech apparel; The Nike Tech Knit. It is engineered for warmth and to respond to differing environments. Breathable, ergonomic zones are included in the construction of the new Nike Tech Knit Windrunner (being modeled above by that courtmaster Lebron James) to enhance flexibility and ventilation, while areas that come under the most strain while training are subtly reinforced. Warmth combined with ventilation is the key feature of this new range that will available very soon from 5 Pointz on our Nike Apparel page.
The Puma x Sneakersnstuff Swedish Camo Pack - Blaze of Glory and Ignite - release at 00.01am on 27th February 2016.
Puma have teamed up once again with world renowned sneaker store Sneakersnstuff to bring you this new 'Swedish Camo' pack. The choice of silhouettes mixes OG style in the form of the Blaze of Glory, and cutting edge running technology in the Puma Ignite. The design of these two colourways has been inspired by the M90 camouflage print that was introduced by the Swedish Military in 1990 and is still in use today.
As you can see from this woodland photo shoot the Blaze of Glory has synthetic M90 uppers with premium suede overlays, Puma and SNS branding, and a leather lace-hold instead of the usual plastic. The tonal midsole as usual features Puma's Trinomic cushioning system. The Ignite features the same camouflage running down the tongue, contrasting against the no-sew breathable uppers. The Ignite foam technology in the midsole gives enhanced cushioning, and the soft fabric lining the collar adds to the comfort. Don't miss this very special release on the 27th of February!
Action Bronson's new "F*ck, that's delicious!" TV show premieres on February 29th on VICELAND.
Action Bronson has never made a secret of his love of food, in all shapes and sizes and it is a common theme in his rhymes, and his sizable build also hints at this preference. It is not just the consumption that he appreciates either, as his training as a chef has given him an intimate knowledge and appreciation of the preparation. This close relationship with grub has led him to produce a series of programmes for VICE's spin off foody site Munchies. Although a lot of the programmes are based in and around his hometown of New York, he has also used his on-going world tour to sample goodies from all over the world. Along with the food, there is also plenty of Bronson's signature humour and plenty messing with his long time collaborators Big Body Bes, Mayhem Lauren and Alchemist.
Now the franchise is being shifted from the web to TV via VICE's new 24 hour cable channel VICELAND. The above trailer gives you a little taster of what is in store. From the looks of it, it will be quite the refreshing change from the onslaught of mediocre TV chefs who now clog up the airwaves. Who wouldn't rather see 'Mr Wonderful' smoking, munching and laughing, over Mr Oliver showing you how quickly he can cook something in his oversized, shabby chic kitchen? 30 minutes, 20 minutes... whatever. Put him in the ring with Bronson I say. Now that would be some tasty TV.
The Puma Blaze Ignite Pack releases at 00.01am Friday 12th February 2016.

It combines the close fitting, insock construction of the Puma Blaze of Glory, combined with deconstructed premium suede uppers and an elasticated lace setup with branded lace-hold. These classic elements are combined with a midsole that features Puma's new Ignite technology that is the next step in lightweight cushioning and freedom of movement. Don't miss this special introductory release on Friday.

We are also stocking the GS version of the shoe.
This very special Nike Air Jordan 4 release is the next stage in the Jordan brand's 'Retro Remaster' initiative. This range was launched in response to customer feedback and gives the Jordan-heads a near exact re-release of some much-admired OG styles that also incorporates enhanced colour options and materials. To remain as close as possible to the original release the decision has been made, with the permission of Michael Jordan, to include the NIKE AIR logo on the heel tab, instead of the Jumpman logo that replaced it in later releases. To someone with no prior Jordan knowledge this may seem a relatively small detail, but to die-hard fans this is big news!
Due to limited stock and high demand this shoe is being released in our Bristol store at 10am on Saturday 13th Feb 2016 first. Any stock that remains will be released online later in the day.

This Shadow Grey colour-way is one of the OG colour combinations from '85, and as you can see the combination of black and grey sit nicely on the clean white midsole.

Don't miss this OG drop on Saturday 6th February.
The Reebok x Publish Furylite Dark Desert Project - releases 00.01am 4th February 2016.
Reebok have teamed up with premium streetwear brand Publish to produce these two unique editions of the Reebok Furylite, dubbed the Dark Desert Pack. The two colourways are themed around the before and after of a volcanic eruption, hence the choice of a landscape of volcanic rock for this photo shoot. The pack reflects Publish's contemporary, minimalist style, twinned with Reebok's innovations in comfort and performance.
The Oatmeal Furylite with it's cream and white leather uppers and streamline shape is the 'before', whereas the black leather uppers of the bolder and chunkier Furylite Chukka s meant to represent the dark skies and heat of the aftermath of an eruption. Both designs are finished off with Publish embroidery on the tongue, and are constructed from premium leather, with great attention to detail being evident in the finished result.
Nike Air Presto Aluminium / Black / White / Dusty Grey - 819521-400 - is coming February 2016 to 5 Pointz.
2016 is looking like it may be the year of the Nike Air Presto, with several big OG releases and brand new colourways set to release over the next few months. This 'Aluminium' version (don't ask us why it has that name) has a detailed floral pattern across the sock like one-piece upper, with a blue section on the heel of the midsole.
The Air Presto was first released in 2000 and was Nike's first foray into the world of Natural Motion, to compliment the movement of the foot while running. The aim was to make a shoe that was as comfortable as your favourite t-shirt, hence why they come in apparel sizes (small - extra large) instead of normal shoe sizes. When you try on a pair I think you will agree that Nike achieved this aim, and the look of the shoe is possibly more relevant today than when they were first released, in light of the Nike Free range that followed this silhouette.
Select pieces from The Hundreds Spring 2016 collection will be at 5 Pointz in February 2016.
Here we have an unusual, but quite literal, new look book from The Hundreds for the Spring 2016 season. It was conceived, shot and designed by artist, MC, and good friend of The Hundreds crew; Alexander Spit. As you can see the look book is actually a book with the photography given a lot of breathing space and little touches of hand rendered text to accompany the imagery. This upcoming collection from The Hundreds, which will be with us soon, is inspired by the military-issued clothing worn by Vietnam vets, who were frequent participants in anti-war protests when they had returned from the conflict. The camaraderie between these men was then often transformed into the formation of 'clubs', such as the infamous Californian motorcycle gangs.
It is this solidarity, and strength in numbers that Alexander Spit has focussed on in the production of this book. Although individual pieces of clothing are not highlighted in this production, I think he has captured a certain feel and mood, that corresponds with the theme of the collection.
The Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit will be arriving at 5 Pointz in March 2016.
These stunning images have just been released by Nike to showcase the brand new Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit silhouette. For the first time Nike's patented Flyknit fine weave, breathable fabric has been applied to one of Nike's most iconic shoes, and as you can see, the qualities of the original have not been lost but emphasized. The Flywire lacing system, along with the appealing texture of the fabric, complete this striking reworking of the classic. We think this new AF1 Flyknit will please the OG fans, along with bringing in some people who have never considered this iconic basketball silhouette as a fashion option.
Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Essential Black / Resin / Emerald Green - 819474-008 - releases 00.01am 29th January 2016. See here.

Here we have a very special themed pack of three styles - The Nike Air Max 90, the Air Max 1 and the Air Huarache Utility. All feature the colour 'Emerald Green' in varying parts of the shoe, and all three have no-sew, heat transferred overlays featuring a partially reflective 'elephant skin' print. Another common feature is the light speckling to break up the pure white of the midsole. Although all three possess these common features, I think you'll agree they also stand alone as distinctive styles. Don't miss the drop on Friday 29th January 2016.
The Nike Air Huarache Run Ultra Black / Wolf Grey / Hyper Violet - 819685-005 - will be available at 5 Pointz very soon. The black colourway will follow soon.
Well, well, well. Since the launch of the women's Nike Air Huarache Run Ultra male customers have been asking for a men's version, and as if Nike had our shop bugged they come up with these brilliant colourways in men's sizes. It has mesh and perforated foam uppers, an elastic back strap, no-sew moulded overlays, a neoprene bootie for a snug fit, and a hollowed out Air Unit midsole with flex grooves for maximum flexibility.
The Nike Air Tech Challenge II White / Hot Lava / Black / Silver - 318408-104 - is available here, as part of our current Nike selection.
This infamous 'Hot Lava' OG colourway is back and still packs a punch. With leather uppers making a strong shape, with plastic editions and the famous 'Hot Lava' detailing, sitting on a visible Nike Air Unit midsole.
For a long time Tennis was stuck with the classic all white, Strawberries and Pimms that had been the standard since the days of Fred Perry. Then on the 80's things started to get a bit more interesting with the likes of Becker and McEnroe started to bring some attitude to the game. As the decade came to an end the racket had been taken up by Andre Agassi. Known as the bad boy of tennis, with his Nike designed kit and signature Nike Air Tech Challenge, he blew out all the cobwebs. By 1989 he was sporting this 'Hot Lava' colour-way of a second version, the Nike Air Tech Challenge II, which was promoted by a landmark marketing campaign, featuring Agassi smashing it on court, so to speak.
Our first delivery from Champion is coming very soon to 5 Pointz. This new look book shows you some of the pieces that will be coming with this drop. This shoot and the collection are themed around '1990's Americana' and era of Cindy Crawford and 'blue skied' marketing campaigns. Although it doesn't look like it, the location is in the UK, at the Dungeness nature reserve in Kent. The brightness of the backgrounds perfectly fits with the nostalgic colour palette used for this collection.
Along with the heritage of as one of the most esteemed American sports brands, Champion has also been attracting attention for the last few season with their patented 'Reverse' weave technology that produces a heavier, higher quality cotton, which ensures durability and reduces shrinkage when washed. A lot of the hoodies, sweatshirts, tees and sweatpants in this collection are constructed from this 'Reverse' weave fabric. Along with this feature the collection is decorated with striking all-over prints and embroidery based around their instantly recognisable logo.
The Nike Air Jordan Spike Forty University Red / Black / White / Ghost Green - 819952-605 - releases at 8am GMT on 10th February 2016.
Here we have a new "University Red" colourway of the Nike Air Jordan Spike Forty, the third silhouette to some from the Spike Lee franchise, which has become it's own sub-category of the Jordan Brand. It follows in the footsteps of the Jordan Spizike and Jordan Son of Mars and as with these styles, it takes influence from classics from the Jordan archive. In this case the prominent influence is the Air Jordan V, taking the clear outsole, reflective material and lace toggle, but you also have lace tips and tongue. Other features include a synthetic crafted textile upper, moulded TPU plates, and an Air Zoom unit in the midsole.
The Nike Air Presto Zen Grey / Midnight Navy / Varsity Maize / Zen Grey - 305919-041 - releases 11th February 2016.
2016 is looking like it may be the year of the Air Presto, with this new "Zen Grey" edition following the all black edition that released a couple of weeks ago and was all gone in minutes. This colourway, that has been dubbed the "Shady Milkman" by bloggers (I don't know why, answers on a postcard please), is one of the original 13 colourways that were released back in 2000. The concept behind the Air Presto was to design a shoe that is as comfortable to wear as a soft cotton tee, hence why they come in apparel sizes and not the usual shoe size breakdown. When you try on a pair you can tell that Nike have achieved their aim.
The uppers are constructed from a breathable, stretchy mesh with a speckled effect, plastic overlays to help support, and a foam midsole with encapsulated Air-sole unit to absorb impact. The finishing touch is the mini-Swoosh in the centre of the toe box. The Nike Air Presto was one of the first shoes to support the natural motion of the foot, a predecessor of the Nike Free range, and is therefore a major landmark in the evolution of the running shoe.
