Nike and Footlocker have announced another exclusive partnership this week, which sees the two telling the history of Nike’s many logos through a series of footwear releases. Check out the new Footlocker x Nike “Sunburst” pack, arriving in stores this August.

Nike’s branding elements have evolved dozens of times since Blue Ribbon Sports became Nike, Inc. back in 1971. However, some have stood out more than others, making their mark both with consumers and in the design world. This week, Nike announced a string of new projects with Footlocker celebrating the ever-evolving logos, like the famous Sunburst logo. Created in 1972 when the brand was attempting to create a nonsymmetrical version of the Swoosh for apparel, the Sunburst logo features a multicolor wheel of their legendary marking. The new footwear collection of the same name similarly follows these design cues, painting the various silhouettes in bright, eye-catching shades of yellow, red, green, and orange. All four shoes involved, the Air Force 1, Air Max Plus, Air Max 97, and React Element 55 have an added Sunburst logo somewhere on them, usually taking over the spot where a singular Swoosh would be found.


Nike’s new Sunburst Pack, created in tandem with Footlocker, has been announced to release later next month, on August 31st, 2019. The collection, including the Air Force 1, Air Max Plus, Air Max 97, and React Element 55, will launch exclusively at Footlocker for their standard retail prices. Check out the collection below for a better look at the Sunburst pack, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more Nike release news.
