Nike take cues from humans ability to adapt to change in their latest release for Autumn/Winter 2014, as they introduce new adaptations of classic styles in the ‘Sneakerboot’ Collection.
With the weather deteriorating and the UK population reaching for their winter wardrobe, the time is right to be considering footwear options and Nike have seemingly come up with a solution. Traditionally I prefer a slightly slimmer shape when it comes to footwear, so I’m not 100% sure if these are for me, but I do admire Nikes commitment towards innovation and forward thinking performance design.
Reworking iconic running and basketball silhouettes into ‘weatherised powerhouses’, the Sneakerboots design provides a trio of benefits – warmth, visibility and dryness. The shoes original outsoles remain to ensure the same levels of comfort are achieved, whilst internal linings give your feet that extra layer to fight the cold. Additional features include water resistant properties with each pair constructed from a mixture of premium materials.
The pick of the pack has to be the Air Max 90 Sneakerboot, which maintains its iconic shape with added features in the highly visible, highly durable upper, the classic Air bubble for extra cushioning and waffle patterned rubber outsole for extra traction. The release also includes Sneakerboot renditions of the Lunar Force 1, Air Max 1, Roshe Run Hi, Lunar Fresh, LunarElite Sky Hi, Air Trainer SC and the Dunk Sky Hi, arriving in Autumnal colour treatments. We will let you make up your mind on these, but one things for sure… if you’re looking for a warm, dry and comfortable shoe for the winter months, the Sneakerboots are for you.
The Holiday ’14 Nike Sneakerboots will be available at select Nike Sportswear retailers and online at nike.com from October 15th.
