Another chance to grab the limited collab.
Italian fashion designer Riccardo Tisci's latest Nike collab, the Air Zoom Legend, will be releasing once again following the exclusive release that took place at 21 Mercer in NYC last month.
The $350 Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Air Zoom Legend features a Chelsea Boot inspired build, leather lining, and two separate colorways.
“I wanted to combine Nike’s rich experimentation in boot silhouettes with my love of the Chelsea Boot, in particular,” “Shoes like the Nike Aqua Boot or SFB Boot have been equally embraced by niche sport communities and adopted as style staples. After our first collaboration in 2014, when I designed an Air Force 1 Boot for Nike, I knew I had even more visions of this kind of sport style to realize.”
Creating two versions of the shoe, one with a basketball-inspired black mesh upper, colorful heel and ice outsole — the second version dons a grey floral pattern embroidered on a black, woven jacquard upper and white midsole. In contrast to the shoes’ intentionally minimal uppers, both outsoles contain geometric midsole tooling inspired by Rio’s curvy Copacabana sidewalks.
“The shoe juxtaposes Rio’s lively beach life with inspiration from Brasilian modernist architecture and the formality of a gentrified Chelsea boot.”
The Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Air Zoom Legend release will be more widespread this time around but still very much limited. If you're into the unique styling you can look to score a pair this Thursday, December 8th at select NikeLab retailers.
