Tennis’ summer of slams is on the move from the clay of Paris to the grass of London. NikeLab and fragment design are celebrating this changeover with a second collection of championship-inspired footwear. What Hiroshi is doing as the games change slams is genius. Clay. Grass. We can’t wait to see what’s next. We can only imagine what the court style will look.
The NikeCourt Air Trainer 1 Mid x fragment will be available in select retailers and on nike.com/nikelab in Western Europe beginning July 2.
The Nike Vandal High has been terrorizing the hardwood since the early ‘80s. The silhouette’s increased collar height, stability strap, canvas upper, and pivot-point outsole made it one of the top basketball sneakers of the time alongside the Nike Dunk High, Nike Terminator High, Nike Legend High, Nike Air Ship High and eventually the Nike Air Force 1. It’s see these OGs come back. It’s just a shame that they’re basically unattainable.
The NikeLab Vandal High has been available on nike.com/nikelab and at select NikeLab retailers since June 25th.
For Pigalle founder Stéphane Ashpool, the 1990s represented a golden era of basketball. Rivalries ran rampant, legends ascended to new heights and dynasties were born. The decade is an important influence on the designer, not just in terms of sport, but also in regards to American fashion. Fittingly, the French style leader’s new NikeLab x Pigalle collection combines his memories of the era and his unbridled passion for basketball. These definitely make up for that hyped up Air Raid.
The NikeLab x Pigalle collection has been available since June 27 at select NikeLab retailers and on nike.com/nikelab.
