Footloose Friday: Nike x 2
First up, the Air-Trainer 1 is a pretty cool initiative that pairs marketing and design students with Nike's own in-house team to create and market a trainer. This one, the Cruz II Victory was aided and abetted by the New York Giant's Victor Cruz, alongside Nike's own designers and marketers and those ambitious students. Featuring premium black leather and translucent outsole, we particularly love the velcro strap that is placed towards the front of the shoe, the super bright colouring on the heel and the super cool fabric detailing of the tick, toe and inner tongue.
Out on limited release from Nike from 7 September.
For the equally adventurous among us, the Air Trainer arrives with a touch of bright blue and a whole lot of gamma as its colourway. There's leather to be found here, but also nubuck on the base, reflective leopard print on the heel and snake-inspired patterns on the tick and ankle tab, while the bottom get a blue sprinkle. Love the details of this shoe, it will definitely add a whole lot of swank to an outfit.
The Lunar Force-1 will also be available only as limited edition from October, so be prepared to queue to cop yours.
