Will Apple sell these the Nike bands specifically the Black Nike sport loop that comes on the Series 4 Nike edition Space Gray Aluminum watch?

I hope so. I was at Apple last night and they had it on display but had none in stock. Looks way better than the regular "black", which is more of a burgundy in reality.

I have one from my AW3 that I don’t wear, and I’d part with.

The standard black sport loop which I have has flecks of other colours in it like red. The Nike black sport loop which use to be sold separately and has been discontinued was pure black. I was meaning to buy one myself as I don’t really like the standard one and never got around to it. I’m hoping they sell it again separately.

Really interested in these differences. The nike sport band seems to be more gray than black. Isn’t it?
Do you think the reflective effect is going to be annoying when casual wearing at night?

Do I? No. No way to know for sure until I have a chance to try it though.

I have one but am returning it (switched to SBSS) so not really able to do any photos. They do have them on display in Apple stores (at least in the one's I've visited)

It's a black somewhat fuzzy band with a number of white threads embedded in the black fabric. These are the reflective threads, and in a little bit of messing with it they do seem to work -- though the reflectivity lessens as your viewing angle moves away from perpendicular -- my guess is due to the fuzziness of the band impacting off-angle visibility to the threads.

It seemed comfortable in briefly trying it out, but I didn't try it for a workout.

Edit: Looks like 9to5mac has a couple photos -- https://9to5mac.com/2018/10/05/apple-watch-nike-series-4/

Seeing the 9to5mac photos I can see the diference between the nike loop band and the normal loop band!

I will try to go to a Apple Store this weekend and see with my own eyes.

Thank you very much!

I’d like a midnight blue sport band.
Have you looked into the Obsidian/Black Nike Sport Band? I just got mine last week, the colour is basically the same as the normal midnight blue sport band, and the holes are black. Looks great. It’s still available online but under “bands from previous collections” section.

Just seeing this thread now but I have a new 40mm Nike+ Summit White Sport Loop (reflective) that I'm looking to sell if anyone is interested. DM me if you want to see pictures.

Really? How do I find this other collection area?
