the sneaker’s upper is constructed of a flyknit that differs from the normally translucent performance material used on the zoom fly and, as reported by solecollector, will be available in two colourways: total orange and black. meanwhile, large dots on both the lateral and medial side of the shoe indicate the perfect place to kick a football.

this is not the first time abloh has worked with NIKE. the designer released a collaborative pair of the nike zoom flys as part of his ‘the ten’ collection last year. the sneaker series, which involved deconstructing and reimagining ten NIKE footwear classics has been detailed in a recent release of ‘TEXTBOOK’, a chronicle outlining abloh’s design process.
