The adidas ZX 5000 Response is a fresh take on a classic runner introduced this year as part of the adidas Originals ‘Run Thru Time’ pack. It looks like it’ll have some life beyond these sets tied in with the ZX 500 and adiZero Adios, as we have two new colorways that’ve shown up here today with a promise to ship next month. Both have a fairly mainstream look but with careful accent color choices to draw the eye, so click through to see both pairs of ZX 5000 Responses shipping in January, then pre-order yours from Hanon.
Of the three New Balance runners celebrating 25th anniversaries in 2013, only the 996 didn’t get a direct celebration of its birthday. Whereas the 574 and 576 came through with OG styles, the NB996 noted the occasion indirectly, with REVlite updates including the original grey colorway. Here are a couple more New Balance 996 REVlite releases that fit in with the brand’s traditional aesthetic, grey/navy and navy/red pairs in suede and mesh that look identical to the ’88s, save that updated foam wedge at the heel. Check out both pairs with more photos waiting below, then grab yours at retailers like Hype DC.
After 2013′s ‘OG’ ‘Race Day’ ‘British Tea’ and ‘Camo’ packs, the New Balance 576 will continue its collectively themed ways into next year. Here’s our first look at the ‘Three Peaks’ 576s, a trio of UK-made pairs that have been configured to resemble trail shoes. Each has a dark and earthy color scheme with vibrant accents, and extends the offroad theme with two-tone laces and tongue tags with graphic depictions of the pack name. Click through to see all three of these January 2014 releases so you can decide which one you like best, and stick with Sneaker News for US release info on the pairs available now for pre-order from Titolo.
Jordan Brand’s Trunner series has been going for well over a decade and they’ve offered numerous other training shoes, but here’s one that’s made specifically for running. The Jordan Flight Runner is a lightweight performance running shoe, but it’s not overt in its use of cutting edge tech, as with something like the Nike LunarGlide 5. We see a mostly mesh upper including a digi-Elephant print as part of a timeless Chicago Bulls colorway, and they’re depicted from more angles below so you can start thinking about whether you’ll want to buy a pair when they release next summer.
The world could do with more Nike Air Max Lights, wouldn’t you agree? This 1989 born runner that debuted as the Air Max II is a cornerstone from the early days of the Nike Running flagship series, but British retailer Size? has claimed a monopoly on new AM Lights over the past year and a half. So this new Air Max Light Essential for women is hopefully a sign of more good things to come, its mix of black, greys and Green Abyss a quick reminder of what’s so great about this model. Click through to see some more angles, then pick up a pair at stores like Titolo.

Two colorways in particular are remembered as the original 1987 Nike Air Max 1s (though several others were indeed released during the model’s first run). These are the red and blue pairs with the selected color on the mudguard and Swoosh, grey suede, white mesh and of course, premium comfort. Here we see the blue version remixed a bit, with some extra tonal depth on the differing mudguard and Swoosh, the latter of which has a texture to further separate it from the OGs. Check them out in some more photos after the jump, then grab yours from stores like Size?
The most recent Nike Lunar Terra Safari colorway released at first glance appears to be a simple black/silver style, but in certain conditions reveals a 3M reflective treatment. This new drop pictured above is more straightforward with its approach to adding a pop to an otherwise low-key color scheme, adding a Volt tongue and sockliner to a pair with a Newsprint upper and Dusty Grey on the midsole. You can see several more angles of these after the jump below, then find yours in stock at Nike Sportswear dealers like Coutie.
The Nike Air Max+ 2009 is a modern classic, the shoe credited with revitalizing the Nike Running Max flagship series. The 2009 introduced the line to Flywire and a new full-length uncaged cushion that stayed in place for a few years and served as the foundation for 2013′s revision. It makes sense in this context to see the Air Max 2009 given a treatment similar to earlier standouts like the Air Max 1 and 95, in that its retros have released with only the smallest gaps after the original product cycle concluded. Two more pairs (one each for men and women) have just hit over in Asia, so stay tuned for Sneaker News for the latest and check these out in more photos below.
Nike Running included the LunarGlide 5 among their selections for the ‘Flash Pack’, which revealed leopard print on the uppers when the lighting is right. It looks like there are more on the way, though this newest Nike LunarGlide+ 5 Reflect doesn’t have overt signs that it’s concealing some sort of animal print. Instead, these new joints go with an all black mesh upper and it appears that the silver Swoosh would be the element to come to life when bright lights shine on it. Click through to see these from some more angles, then pick up yours at stores like Size?
We’ve known for a couple of weeks now that the Nike Air Max Triax 94 is returning next year for its 20th anniversary. What we didn’t know was exactly how many colorways to expect, and while that’s technically still true, Nike Sportswear’s plan on the matter is coming into clearer focus. In addition to the three we saw in October, here are six more Air Max Triax 94s for the spring season, which includes five that are fairly similarly blocked. Check out the whole set in more images below and stick with Sneaker News while we wait on release info.
