Nike’s Popular Air Zoom Type Sneaker Just Adopted A New Raw Hemp Upper

Aug 26, 2020

Category: Style

The Air Zoom Type is one of Nike’s most profound sneakers, boasting an elaborate modern design, an exceptionally-large outsole, and a rising reputation within the world of streetwear. If the shoe wasn’t popular enough, size? has announced that it’ll be taking the silhouette under its wing for a unique “Hemp” edition inspired by the intricacies of both Japanese, and European fashion.

As its name suggests, the new Air Zoom Type rendition takes on an upper crafted entirely from raw hemp, gifting the shoe a natural aesthetic when compared to its more synthetic counterparts. On the sneaker’s exterior, hints of blue adorn its corduroy components, complementing a similarly-hued heel-tab, Nike Swoosh, and contrasting stitch. To honor the union of two of the world’s foremost style capitals — Tokyo and London — ‘TYO’ and ‘LDN’ lettering has been included on the Zoom Type’s tongue, pairing well with the example’s clean-cut, double-stacked EVA foam midsole. If you’re looking to get your hands on a pair, you’ll have to enter a raffle via the size? website before the 28th of August. Upon winning, the shoe will be available for purchase for $185.

Purchase: $185
