Black Is Back: Nike’s New Sneaks Go Sleek

Autumn-ready, the Beautiful X Powerful Pack and Quilted Pack just hit JD.


Set your feet to stun – two new Nike collections just hit JD! Dropping last week, their Beautiful x Powerful pack pays tribute to sport’s most powerful female athletes, while the Quilted Pack, steps up a selection of classic sneaks for autumn weather.

Dressed in black, their stealthy colours make them perfect for sleek style. The London Fashion Week showed us the all-black trend is gonna be in full swing for the next few months, and these fresh creps are no exception.


First up, the Cortez and Presto models go slick as part of the Beautiful x Powerful pack. Clearly, Nike know a thing or two about sport heritage; this fierce collection is all about honouring sportswomen who broke boundaries and left an everlasting impact in their disciplines. Women like Joan Benoit Samuelson, the first ever female Olympic marathon champion, who still holds the record for the fastest times at both the Chicago Marathon and the Olympic Marathon.

The Swoosh puts Samuelson’s spirit and energy into two classic silhouettes. The Cortez, Nike’s iconic running game-changer, steps up its strength with a hard-wearing stretch-leather upper, while the triple black treatment delivers powerful, understated style.


The Presto has made a serious impact since being re-introduced this year, and the all-black edition is no different, combining the marathon runner’s soul with apparel-inspired comfort and a durable premium leather build. The result? An on-point trainer built for women that set goals and smash them.

Fresh on the site, the Quilted Pack revamps the Roshe and Air Max 90 in hard-wearing, protective nylon. Built to keep you comfortable in the rain, the tougher design delivers element-beating comfort and snug warmth without compromising on their legendary looks.

And of course, the darker colourway keeps things on the slick side, perfect for those all-black outfits you’ll be rocking in October.
