Nike Model Given Minimalist Makeover
Nike has debuted its latest collaboration with French label A.P.C, revealing a minimalist take on its Free OG trainer.
Coming in three colour block shades of black, grey and beige, the style combines a faux suede upper, padded mesh tongue and reinforced rubber sole in coordinating tones.
An elastic heel tag, perforated front for breathability and matching laces finish the design. Nike’s swoosh emblem in a reflective fabric sits alongside A.P.C’s guitar and dagger logo silkscreened on to the tongue and inner sole.
The collaboration marks the tenth anniversary of the Free OG trainer, with past collections between the brands revamping Nike’s Air 1, Air Maxim 1 and Blazer models.
For SS13, the labels also took on the Dunk style, reimagining in it in tonal shades of black, white and hay.
A.P.C has also teamed up with Kanye West on past collaborative collections, launching a second line with the star in February.
The Nike x A.P.C Free OG trainers are available from today at A.P.C’s Redchurch Street store, London, at the brand’s webstore and at Dover Street Market, priced at £120 per pair.
