Everything we know about Nike’s N. 354, THE10TH and D/MS/X shoes
Get a first look at the silhouettes celebrating Nike's commitment to problem-solving and experimental style.
Nike has cemented itself as one of the biggest names in sportswear thanks to its commitment to churning out innovative and stylish new products. Now, the company is looking to add to its legacy with the debut of three brand new sneaker silhouettes.
Set to arrive on the Nike webstore later this month, the new kicks are a mix of classic and fresh silhouettes. The N.354, for instance, is based on a bunch of Nike prototypes that have been patiently waiting in the Nike archives.
The shoes also draw inspiration from track and field athlete Steve Prefontaine's fastest mile time, with the idea that shoes under this line will also push the boundaries of possibility.
THE10TH model meanwhile celebrates Nike's co-founder Bill Bowerman. Formerly in the 10th Mountain Division of the U.S. Army, Bowerman specialised in conquering challenging terrains such as mountainous regions and arctic conditions.
To honour his achievements, sneakers under the line will be made for the outdoors and will deliver on functional features to help you take on all the challenges of everyday life. A nice sentiment.
Finally, the D/MS/X silhouette is a nod to niche sports like urban motocross, which according to Nike, are an intersection between the "rebellious spirit of sport and the defining tenor of the time".
This line will see classic designs reworked with cutting-edge aesthetics and updated functionality.
The new lines come as no real surprise from the brand, which seems determined to stay ahead of the curve. Earlier this year, the Nike label launched the highly-anticipated Adapt BB sneakers which adjust their fit according to the amount of tension in your feet.
We have also recently seen American fashion and graphic designer Jeff Staple drop a video from inside Nike's House of Innovation in Shanghai, showing off a new range of glow in the dark products including tees and a pair of Air Force 1s.
