Nike gleaned inspiration from dogs earlier this season with its eclectic SB Dunk High “Dog Walker” footwear, and now the brand is calling upon the furry Shiba Inu for its latest influence. For Summer 2019, Nike Sportswear has released two T-shirts printed with photographs of Japanese hound Bodhi, better known as The Menswear Dog.
The Air Dog tee features an all-over pattern from front-to-back that showcases the pup with stylish aviator sunglasses. A simple orange “Nike” logo with a corresponding Swoosh adds branding at the center. As for the white-based shirt, the Shiba Inu gets imagined with a laidback streetwear look as the focal image, which comes complete with a Nike top layered under a button-down. His shades return to finish off his outfit.
Both styles are crafted in cotton and constructed with a classic crewneck silhouette. The all-over printed version retails for ¥2,500 JPY (approximately $22 USD), while the center-placed graphic tee is priced at ¥4,000 JPY (approximately $35 USD).
