You’re off the metaphorical hook if you didn’t know Nike was into snow gear, but here’s proof! Kaiju translates as ‘strange beast‘ from Japanese, which seems apt because this boot is loaded with tech like Zoom Air and has more sneaker references than Do the Right Thing – just check those Mowabb-ish colours! If you noticed that the lace locks are in their incorrect position in this photo, go straight to the top of the class.
See the Kaiju in Issue 16 of Sneaker Freaker. Grab it now here.
