While many may simply let the eccentric design tell the story of the shoe, Rose offers a more detailed connection. The origins of this project stem from international football and the contrast in pre-game presentation between tailored suit-wearing men and their standard issue tracksuit-wearing women counterparts. Focusing on reimagining the boundaries of pre-match attire, Rose shared that “we recognized a great opportunity to really focus on women and football and then make a trainer that is almost like a smart shoe.” The resulting mule-shaped silhouette is offered in “Black” and “White” and sticks to Rose’s style with its play on proportions.
To begin the release, the Martine Rose x Nike Shox Mule MR4 will be available in both colorways starting July 7 via Martine Rose’s webstore. If you’re still on hunting down a pair, GOAT has you covered.
