Sportswear brands are currently in an all-out foot race to produce the best crossover collaborations, and after adidas recently took the time to partner alongside Balenciaga, Nike has answered back by announcing its newest women's-focused collection with Jacquemus. The collaborative capsule was first previewed in mid-May 2022, but we now have a closer glance at the assemblage's footwear pieces.
"Having this imagery in mind, we designed women’s athletic wear with sensuous details and neutral colors, along with my own interpretation of the Humara, my favorite Nike shoe," said Simon Porte Jacquemus when asked about the inspiration behind the kicks. Two colorways of the ACG-inspired silhouette have now been unveiled, both of which are prepared with trail-ready tooling and elevated color palettes. Jacquemus reworks the upper with a cleaner aesthetic by smoothening out the mid-foot panels with more white space and tiny Swoosh logos coated with an elevated metallic gold finish. Striped banners throughout the base are still present, but have been lowered in quantity and only show face around the collars. The hiker-inspired sole pieces below are kept intact as the midsoles and outsoles stay consistent with their ridged edges.
Peep an up-close look at the upcoming beige and brown colorways above and note that they're both confirmed to be dropping on June 28 via Jacquemus. The retail price has yet to be announced.
