Nike Air Wild

Jun 27, 2017

Category: Style

One of the benefits to having a huge catalogue is that rather than looking to your competition for ideas, you can simply draw inspiration from your past work. Few other brands do that better than Nike. Proof of that fact can be found in their upcoming Air Wild.

This new silhouette strikes us as a kind of throwback to the brand’s early ACG line from the 1980s. The upper boasts leather accents, a pull-string lacing system, and an almost comically jagged outsole. These design elements paired with the mixed synthetic/textile upper and interior bootie make the shoe a perfect combination of old school sensibilities and modern tech. Not only are these elements striking, but they serve a function, too. The kicks can grip the trail like nobody’s business and thanks to the unique use of materials – they are likely water resistant if not outright waterproof. No word on specific release date but you can expect these to drop sometime this summer.
