Nike Air Footscape Woven Chukka (Year Of The Horse)
UPDATE: If your missed out on scoring a piece of the initial drop don' sweat it, here is your second chance – Kith NYC will be dropping these in limited sizes commencing March 8.
Last year's Chinese snake zodiac sign was a no brainer for sneaker designers to use as their muse, the 2014 Year of the Horse, on the other hand... We've seen some pretty tight releases, not many of which really make us immediately think Phar Lap though. Here Nike really let go of the reins to create a buck wild Air Footscape Woven Chukka YOTH edition. The upper comes hewn from some kind of shine-printed membrane tightly strung together by mustard woven panelling, while down under the chunky Free sole sits plain and simple in black and white. It ain't all completely off the script though, there is a special Chinese character adorning the tongue to commemorate the year. Available now from Toronto's Capsule, stay tuned for wider release info.
