First official collab with Swoosh.

“Growing up, for me, you had to invest in sneakers that you hooped in you, wore to school and skated in too, just so you don’t break your bank account buying three pairs of kicks,” said John Elliott backstage — who was accompanied by Frasher Cooke of Nike and A$AP Bari — following his latest show at New York Fashion Week Men’s. “I choose to collaborate with Nike on the Vandal because it became very much my personality in my high school years.”

While the San Francisco designer has worked with Swoosh in the past, showcasing the Nike Aqua Socks in his 2016 spring/summer collection, this NikeLab collaboration is the designer’s first official release with the Portland giant. Crafted from lush suede, the release comes in two colorways, Off White and Dark Green, and features wax lacing, leather tongue and heel patch for a sophisticated finish. Stay tuned for more details on the release.
