READY FOR FALL? NIKE'S GOT YOU COVERED. MEET THE SEASON'S MOST HYPHY HYBRID, AN EVOLVED AND ELEVATED TAKE ON THE BRAND'S MOST CLASSIC SNEAKS. FALL IS ALL ABOUT THE SNEAKERBOOT.
Nike challenges itself to provide innovation for life and doesn't disappoint. In fact, the only thing conceivably flawed about the products coming out of Nike's Portland design tank is how quickly they improve upon themselves. Is it worth waiting in line for something that will, by the brand's own standards, feel outdated in a couple of weeks? But if you're looking to nail down the next classic that won't go out of style, this launch might officially be it.
Meet the SneakerBoot, which takes the iconic design DNA of Nike and elevates it for extra protection and cold weather compatibility. With increased traction and weatherproofing, the shoes are certainly durable. They also take the sneakers we stomp around the city in all summer and cozy them up for the cold months. Variations include the Air Force 1 Duckboot, the Air Max 90 SneakerBoot, the Free Run+ 2 SneakerBoot, the Lunar LDV SneakerBoot, the Roshe Run SneakerBoot, the Roshe Run Hi SneakerBoot, and the Dunk Sky Hi SneakerBoot. Say that ten times fast!
