Wider Release! MMW x Nike Zoom 005 SlideRelease: 23 September 2022
News on this release was first published on September 12, 2022.
Update September 21, 2022: The MMW x Nike Zoom 005 Slide has been locked in for a wider release on September 23 via END. and SNKRS.
Matthew M Williams of 1017 ALYX 9SM and Givenchy fame has been hard at work developing his take on the enduring Clogcore trend through a futuristic lens. The resulting Zoom 005 Slide – made possible by his ongoing partnership with Nike – looks to be one of the wildest designs to emerge from this evolving footwear genre yet.
Unlike the flowing and organic shapes explored by other brands’ clogs, MMW opts for more sculpted and angular surfaces, as evidenced by the flat edges and chamfered joints. The Zoom 005 Slide does maintain the trypophobia-inducing status quo of these slide-on designs by riddling the upper and sides with fine holes. These perforations may cause mental discomfort for some, but they likely feel a lot better than they look on foot. Besides, the tonal beige and black colourways will hide these dots.
The Nike Zoom 005 Slide is currently scheduled to release on September 9 exclusively from the ALYX website, but there’s a good chance there’ll be a wider drop at boutique retailers in coming months.
