Sneaker Talk: August 18th Releases

by on August 15, 2012

The Nike Zoom KD IV “Gold Medal,” Nike Air Max Hyperposite, and Air Jordan Retro VI/VII “Golden Moments Package” are all set to release on August 18th.

In three days, some of the Nike’s most anticipated sneakers are making their way to the shelves of your favorite sneaker stores.

Nike Zoom KD IV “Gold Medal” (retail price: $95).

These sneakers have a shiny gold upper with red and blue accents, finished with an ice bottom. They feature fuchsia insoles – a nod to the purple-colored ribbons attached to the actual gold medals they received at the Olympics. These are definitely worth getting your hands on considering they’re in honor of the Team USA victory – it doesn’t hurt that they’re so good-looking.

Nike Air Max Hyperposite (retail price: $225)

As we’ve reported before, the Nike Air Max Hyperposite had an unknown release date for what seemed like forever. About a week ago, it was announced that these, too, would be available to the public on August 18th. All three color ways – Black/Crimson, Fireberry Blue, and Atomic Green – will be released at the same time.

Air Jordan Retro VII & VII “Golden Moments Package” (retail price: $350)

The much-anticipated Golden Moments Package is finally dropping. Featuring the black/gold Retro VII’s and the white/gold Retro VI’s, this pack is a no-brainer buy. Unfortunately they’re going to be available in extremely limited quantities – worse than other Air Jordan Retro releases – so getting a pair is going to be difficult unless you’re willing to camp out or spend a great deal buying them from a re-seller. Nonetheless, this sneaker release is pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
