The influence that athletic wear is having on fashion, particularly the sneaker world, is really exciting to me. Nike has recently dropped sneaker collabs in their NikeLab line with major forces in fashion including Ricardo Tisci and, on 10.30.14 Nike will drop new sneaker releases with Jun Takahashi x UNDERCOVER.
Selling out quickly in most venues, including online, these collabs feature unique materials and colorways including premium leather, suede, faux ponyhair and animal patterns. Nike describes the Tisci collab as featuring “vibrant colors” and “bold patterns” blended with a familiar classic, Nike AirForce1.
The preview of Nike x UNDERCOVER collab seems promising as well. The collab will feature a mash up of distinct, yet alluring materials in three monochromatic colorways in the popular Nike Sky Hi Dunk with concealed wedge. To be honest, Nike won me over with “faux pony hair,” and of course the black colorway is my personal fave. Check out more of the UNDERCOVER Sky Hi collection at [nike.com]
Will you be adding any of these fashion collabs to your sneaker collection?
