Nike Cancel the Noise With New NYC Footwear
To celebrate the opening of its newest flagship store in New York City, Nike have unveiled an exclusive collection of kicks inspired by a variety of NYC-centric moments. Featuring five silhouettes in all, the drop features customisable takes on old and new designs alike, each of which is marked by a unique white-on-white construction of high-quality bonded synthetics. Each pair even sports removable Swooshes and can be customised with everything from dip-dyes, prints and embroidery, to patches, laser-etching and accessories.
Check out the Swoosh's breakdown of each offering below and expect the 'Noise Cancelling' kicks to be available as an in-store exclusive starting this Thursday, November 15.
