Holiday is here. And once again, Nike is ready with their footwear collection for this season. Recently we at Footurama had a good chance on getting our hands on the kicks. The year 2012 has been a good year for Nike & Nike Sportswear considering their releases of sneakers such as Flyknit Racer & HTM, Gyakusou (under collaboration with Jun Takahashi's UNDERCOVER), And lots of infusion of Lunarlon soles and Free Run soles to their original shoes. Also, the Vintage ones are also getting much attention with the return of Blazer vintage including the Mid '77, and off course, Huarache, Cortez and Vortex.
First, the one that got our attention are the Jordan inspired colorway Dunk Highs, that previously seen at MITA Sneakers via streething, that we think is a must have for Jordan lovers out there. The next one, is the beautiful all black Free Trail, internationally dubbed Free Trail "Blackout". Each pair comes in a full suede upper with trail-specific Nike Free cushioning. In our opinion, this one could've been the result of a collaboration with some Japanese brand like SOPH. or nonnative.
Other than the Free Trail, the running sportswear will have the new Nike Free Powerlines+. Not as good as the previous Powerlines+ releases like obsidian or sequoia, but this "Gridiron" one is fine. Comes with the aesthetic Powerlines lacing system, with yellow to the darkened gold. Next, there are several vintage releases which includes the Air Vortex Vintage and the Air Waffle Trainer. The Vortex(s) comes in a playful vintage green colors, while the Waffle Trainer comes with Grey leather & suede combination.
Another interesting take is a casual Kenshin Chukkas. They are known for representing a chukka boot silhouette and were meant to be the stylish one from Nike Sportswear. And, the last but not least are the ones that recently made it to the rack of Nike stores in jakarta, the Lunar Safari. Just like what the guys at HighSnob were saying, Lunar Safari combines history and future.
Some of the kicks are available and some are heading to Nike Stores across Indonesia as we write. Head to Nike Stores near you to cop one of these bad ass shoes!
