NikeLAB have reasserted their position as top-tier sneaker crafters by linking with Loopwheeler for this Indigo pack. The release comprises a Sock Dart and Air Force 1 Ultraforce, each featuring quality detail rarely seen outside a bespoke custom.
Tapping Loopwheeler’s resources (namely machines they’ve been using since the 60s that don’t exist outside Japan) NikeLAB created the sneakers centred around aizome – a 1400-year-old Japanese method of hand-dyeing fabric with deep indigo. The technique bestows the AF-1 and Dart with a stunning shade that sets is apart from other navy novices. Heathered cotton has been fed through Loopwheeler’s unique machines and applied for contrast, while leather detailing speaks to the colab's impeccable quality.
Wear something seen only once in a blue moon – snap up the NikeLAB x Loopwheeler Indigo pack from select Nike accounts on July 16.
