Heron Preston recently revealed his latest collaboration with the Swoosh during his inaugural runway show at the Palais de Tokyo: a remix of Nike’s Huarache E.D.G.E. The foam fit bootie construction made its debut during Preston’s ‘Night Shift’ show in Paris, where the venue was reimagined as an airport terminal (complete with CCTV and x-ray machines).
The designer and DJ shared his inspiration behind the design in Paris. He said, ‘Having worked at Nike and understanding the full breadth of product categories the brand has to offer, I wanted to be the person to take on the challenge of identifying and celebrating new stuff.’
The Heron Preston x Nike Huarache E.D.G.E. will drop on February 1 as a US exclusive. As always, keep it dialled to Sneaker Freaker for a list of official retailers.
