After teasing and shaking the snkr wrld we now have a detailed look atREADYMADEandNike’s new black, white and orangeBlazercollaboration. Conceptualized by READYMADE founderYuta Hosokawa , the design is centered around a cobbled-together ethos that tinkers with standard footwear geometries and even introduces an element of sustainability.
The Uppers offer black fabric quarters and are delicately attached to the collars, the throats are made of foam material with a camo-like black and white print. While laces are tripled up, offering a jarring split between gray ovals, neon green bungees and white flats.
Although the most instantly notable details are served up by the orange Swoosh and the white midsole. The Swoosh is highly thinned out towards its crest and heel, while the middle retains full thickness. It’s also only partially secured to the upper. Meanwhile, the midsole provided a bubbling texture.
Further touches are the white synthetic heel piece with a hybrid tri-Swoosh/READYMADE graphic, large black heel tabs, a modifiedNike Sportswearhit on the tongue tag that reads “NIKE/RE” in red and black, and a rubberized toe cap. Outsoles that appear to be constructed of sustainableNike Grindrubber round off the look.
