Nike is celebrating the arrival of New York Fashion Week and the 66th NBA All-Star Weekend with the release of a new collection labeled the “5 Decades of Basketball” Pack.

Partnering for an initial launch with NYC’s KITH, Nike is offering fans an opportunity to snag five new takes on some of their most iconic silhouettes. The Blazer, Air Force 1 High Lux, Foamposite, and Zoom Generation will release draped in vachetta tan leather accented by rose gold embellishments.

The standout model of the group is an updated version of 1995’s eye-catching Zoom Flight 95, The new Zoom Bonafide, which sees the original upper replaced with woven Flyknit. Additional features include a heel zipper with vachetta tan leather trim, rose gold detailing along the midsole of the sneaker, and an extended collar–a motif Nike has been implementing heavily in 2017.

You’ll be able to get your hands on these gems beginning February 10, via KITH. If you miss out on the exclusive launch, you can look forward to a wider global release on February 18.
