1017 ALYX 9SM designer Matthew M. Williams has unveiled two upcoming collaborative Nike silhouettes in an array of colors. The two silhouettes are brand new designs from Nike and sport a Vibram cramp-on attachment, similar to the design of his recently released hiking sneaker boot.

The first pair revealed on his Instagram was a sock-like-constructed sneaker that sits atop Nike’s Free Run sole unit. The shoe comes in a ninja-esque triple black colorway as well as a mixed-white iteration and features design elements that echo the aesthetic of a classic Nike tube sock. The laceless sneaker uses straps placed over the vamp and around the ankle to attach its Vibram outsole and features suede and burnt PVC-like panels throughout its design.

The second pair teased is more technical and hiking-inspired than its streamlined alternative. Matthew M. Williams revealed this pair in triple black, the same mixed-white colorway as before, and a black and red version which each feature the detachable Vibram outsole. This second pair is cut slightly lower and features a zip-opening from the collar to the footbed. The pair mixes more fabrics into its design such as nylon, suede and Flyknit and is finished with wire laces. Both silhouettes are finished with “MMW” and Nike Swoosh co-branded leather insoles and “Matthew M. Williams” typography on the lateral-side rear heel.

Take a closer look at the collaborative pairs above and stay tuned to HYPEBEAST for updates on pricing and drop dates.
