Having an affiliation like Nike is never a bad thing when it comes to the technology department. The collective ressource sharing has yielded some interesting collaborative efforts in recent times. One doesn’t need to look any further than the incorporation of a Lunarlon outsole with Cole Haan to create a unique and ultimately functional product. Continuing on with the trend is surf brand Hurley and their Phantom Sandal. With previous partnerships including the use of Flywire in their boardshorts, the Phantom Sandal borrows some of Nike’s flexible and barefoot-esque Free technology in this upcoming Volt colorway. Stay tuned for more details on a release.
