Nike X Ruohan Wang - Flyleather Air Force 1, Air Max 90 & Blazer Mid 77
Nike continue their sustainable initiatives together with artist Ruohan Wang celebrating 'Earthday Everyday’ across a trio of Air Force 1, Air Max 90, and Blazer.
Berlin-based illustrator Ruohan Wang lends her artistic eye toward three Nike silhouettes — the Air Force 1, the Blazer Mid ’77 and the Air Max 90 — in the second year of the collaborative Flyleather pack, which features Flyleather uppers made with at least 50% recycled leather fiber.
Through her patterns, the forward-thinking principles of circular design become fun, optimistic and hopeful. These classic silhouettes are the base for Ruohan’s swirling, aqueous blend of colour and motion, resembling the earth’s natural forces — and the two-part balance that reflects Ruohan’s upbringing.
“The earth belongs to every person. Every culture is part of this global mission to protect it,” says Ruohan. “Given my Chinese background and my artistic training in Berlin, it felt right to present that motivation born out of many cultures.”
The trio will release online at midnight 12am AEST this coming Thursday the 24th of September.
All three silhouettes will be available in sizes US7 through to US14 (including some half sizes) with the Air Force 1 and Blazer for $160AUD, and Air Max 90 for $180AUD.
