Expected to launch in 2022, the forthcoming take on the first Nike Basketball silhouette finds Virgil Abloh deconstructing a classic model yet again. High-quality leather makes up the entirety of the upper, although it’s riddled with sizable holes. An additional set of lace loops and laces; tabs on the lateral profile swoosh; and Helvetica text on the medial side are also featured on Abloh’s next Nike Blazer-variant. And while eye-catching in their own right, these details have become synonymous with the Illinois-native. What’s surprised countless netizens, however, is the modified sole unit underfoot. Potentially housing a version of Nike React foam, the midsole boasts a protruding EVA and (ostensibly) rubber clip at the heel. The new add-on’s purpose has yet to be shared, but what’s already certain is that it’s divided audiences everywhere.
An official Nike SNKRS release date hasn’t been disclosed by Abloh or the Swoosh, but that’s likely to change at the top of 2022. In any case, enjoy images of the pair ahead.
