Later this month the Nike lifestyle silhouette, the Air Woven returns. The sneakers debut in the millennium year of 2000 marked a key point in the Nike design timeline. This sneaker silhouette was one of the specific designs that came together to form a futuristic and forward thinking shoe. This sneaker also moved away from the typical Nike sports shoe and made itself a unique footstep in the sneaker scene for artistic and contemporary style.
The textured uppers are woven neatly with a combination of elastic and polyester webbing which creates the perfect sock-like fit. The shoe was first released in a number of different colourways ranging from double colour palettes and multi-colour palettes creating many eye-catching patterns. The midsole is sculpted with phylon for maximum comfort and durability with every step.
In 2012 there was a Nike Air Woven release with colourways based upon the summer Euro cup. In six different limited edition colourways which helped the promotion of the sneaker itself.
The Air Woven is a minimalistic silhouette however it still manages to pack in an exquisite amount of detail with the handwoven upper technique forming head turning patterns with vibrant ranges of colours. It is a perfect sneaker to fit with any minimal smart casual outfit for summer. The release this May will consist of six new colourways four of which we will be stocking.
With our release of the Nike Air Woven we will be also giving away an exclusive piece of Remi Rough's digital artwork with each pair we sell. The artwork that you will receive with your pair of Air Woven's is a digital down sized version of the wall mural he created for us inspired by the Air Woven. All prints are signed copies from Remi himself.
