Nike Footscape Woven Motion (Bodega)

Lattice work on sneakers isn’t really my style: any model with uppers more ornate than the basic Nike Woven doesn’t usually have me foaming at the mouth, unless we’re talking pastries. But this tongue-twisting Tier Zero release (I consider myself semi-knowledgeable with sneaker names, but even I can’t easily recall the full name of this one) is perfect.

The use of soft suede leather is great and gives a really tactile finish to an already-perfect colourway, even though the British summer this year looks guaranteed to keep these as in-the-house slippers for the moment. I fear that one brush with the elements would render these into beaters immediately. Being part of the limited edition Night Cats pack from Bodega, these flew out of the shops immediately, as did the accompanying other two models.

I met the Bodega guys when we worked on the aZX project at adidas in Germany and interviewed them for their section in the accompanying films. Great guys and they run a great store in Boston, which I hope to see in person within the next 12 months.

Nike x Misha (PAM) ‘Running Man Pack’ Air Max 90

Nike x Misha (Pam) 'Running Man Pack' Air Max 90

These are up there with the fluro runners from the late ’80s when it comes to lurid colourways. Green, yellow and purple sounds horrific, but I really liked these Quickstrikes when they came out in 2008.

Misha Hollenbach (AKA Perks from PAM) put these together as part of Nike’s ‘Running Man’ pack, along with Reas and Parra who each worked on different models. I really liked this series: Reas did a great T-shirt and I thought Parra’s Air Max 95 was one of the best colourways of that model yet.

I’ve gone through stages of not wearing these at all, but as we’re now in the summer (despite the British weather insisting we’re not), they’ve found their way back into regular rotation. And I recently noticed that they kinda match my Fila/Supreme polo shirt.
