Nike unveiled its next wave of footwear at their 2016 Innovation Summit in New York City. This collection represents the future of Swoosh shoes with cutting edge technology and the sort of statement product we’ve come to expect from the brand. There’s a fully functional auto-lacing trainer, one of the most exciting Air Max designs in years, the next signature for Kevin Durant and more included in the group.
