UPDATE: November is here at last and with the change in seasons just one month away, that means the mercury is really starting to plummet up north. Just in time to wage war on winter, the Nike 'Legendary Meets Necessary' collection is here and ready for battle. The seven-shoe collection, which features winterised renditions of popular silhouettes, is set to hit Nike stockists on November 3, including Nike.com.
Scroll through the gallery below to view the collection in its entirety.
If anyone out there has been thinking that sneakers designs have been needing a shake-up, then you need to see Nike’s new SneakerBoot collection.
The pack has been named ‘Legendary Meets Necessary’ and it’s really something else. Athletic shoes have been imaginatively revised – some to look suited to tramping through an otherworldly forest, and some like they’d be at home under that pawn shop in Pulp Fiction.
The heavy duty offering counts six SneakerBoots in its ranks. There’s a men’s and women’s Lunar Force 1 Flyknit Workboot, a men’s and women’s Air Presto Mid Utility, a men’s and women's Lupinek Flyknit, and a very interesting women’s Roshe Two High Flyknit. The last shoe looks ostensibly nothing like a Roshe, and more similar to a Hyperdunk 2016 Flyknit wearing a riding boot.
Sometimes function trumps form though, and these SneakerBoots are packed full of functionality. Among their various terrain-conquering features, each shoe employs a new water resistant Flyknit that will keep your feet both dry and aired out when you’re in the wilds.
The Nike Legendary Meets Necessary SneakerBoot collection will be hitting Nike online during October.
