Nike‘s D/MS/X sub-label has added a final piece to the Swoosh’s NBA All-Star Game-themed offerings: the D/MS/X Distorted DNA. Joining a Dunk High, Air Foamposite One and Air Force 1 React LV8, the D/MS/X Distorted DNA is a casual shoe with basketball flair and advanced tech.

Arriving days after the game — which itself was postponed and moved to Atlanta from Indianapolis due to the coronavirus — the Distorted DNA’s inaugural black, white and “Barely Green” colorway follows the palette established by its aforementioned compatriots. Uppers feature a forefoot built from black mesh and a midfoot/heel made from a supple, neoprene-like material colored in “Barely Green.” Synthetic black leather overlays on the heel and eyestays add structure, and the entire assemblage is secured by a toggle lacing system. A hidden half-foot inner lining can be adjusted with its attached straps, and an All-Star badge is placed on the tongue.

Though there’s lots of working parts on the top half, the Distorted DNA’s most notable design piece is its large heel clip. This is done up in silver TPU, extends beyond the shoe’s rear and melts into the midsole with its wavy-shaped bottom half. The midsole itself is constructed of soft white EVA foam. A “Barely Green” outsole with black detailing rounds off the look.

The Nike D/MS/X Distorted DNA is available now via Nike China for ¥999 CNY (approximately $154 USD). A US release is likely to follow in the coming days.
