Nike is trying to capitalize on the deconstructed trend that was made famous by Virgil Abloh‘s and his Off-White collection with with their own sample-form designed sneakers. One of those will include this new iteration of the Drop Type LX model.
The low-cut sneaker offers a bricolage style that’s almost Tom Sachs-esque, with a white nylon base that features an ever-so-small handwriting-style text hit and is overlaid by hits of sail and tan suede. A puffy blue foam tongue and black heel tab offer pops of color, and both are equipped with an imperfect hand-scrawled Swoosh graphic. The red insole is embellished with inkjet printer-style text, and even the white midsole gets in on the fun, rising onto the upper with a double-stacked design on the heel and a sizeable toe cap on the front
Look for the Nike Drop Type LX to release on June 28th at select retailers and Nike.com. The retail price tag is set at $75 USD.
