As part of Nike’s Artist in Residence program, dubbed A.I.R., Chicago-based artist Cody Hudson will drop the second installment of his collection. Featuring Hudson’s signature abstract motifs inspired by his work as a graphic designer, the Pegasus 36 and Epic Phantom React Flyknit sneakers take on an updated ’60s counter-culture aesthetic.

The Pegasus 36 is printed with loose circles and geometric shapes, accented with a bright yellow swoosh and midsole gradient. In contrast, the Epic Phantom React Flyknit sports an all-over blue polka dot print on its upper with a yellow tongue and heel tabs. As part of the second installment, Hudson’s prints are also employed on a selection of apparel and accessories, featuring playfully printed lightweight jackets, T-shirts, shorts, socks and caps.

Hudson’s conceptual designs convey a sense of constant motion and togetherness through their bold colors and organic shapes. “The hand-painted dot pattern that is used through the line was meant to convey a feeling of movement and motion, but in a less-than-perfect way,” Hudson says. “To me, the dots feel like individuals all coming together to form something bigger when you see it as a larger pattern.”

The Cody Hudson Art Collection will drop October 3 on Nike’s website and at select in-store locations.
