London-based artist Ben Drury continues his partnership with Nike, this time developing another shoe with his name attached to it. Dubbed the “Silent Listener”, Drury’s latest design finds inspiration from the City of London, featuring an overall scheme implementing dark color tones, juxtaposed beautifully by the use of a vibrant blue. The “Silent Listener” Air Max 90 Current is slated to drop today, exclusively via Nike Sportswear 1948 in London. Only 125 pairs were produced for this design.

“The partnership came about to celebrate a long term three way collaboration between myself, Dizzee and Nike Sportswear, kind of joining the dots. However, as it developed, Dizzee’s shoe, which I co-created, became more about his album (Tongue n’ Cheek), which was totally where he was at that time. I channeled that in the same way I work with him when I design his sleeves. His Air Max 90 became the “Tongue n’ Cheek”, mine became the “Silent Listener”. It was designed as a counterpoint to Dizzee’s Air Max 90. Walk with me. Traversing the city. I walk in London like I walk on Dartmoor. Using waypoints, landmarks, and local knowledge. The city as a landscape. Distances shrink with the right footwear.”
