Stone Island had a massive resurgence in popularity this year, and it was a matter of time before the premium Italian fashion label was tapped by Nike to join forces to create a collection of epic sports-luxe proportions. Known for their uber-premium outwear offerings, its no surprise their debut NikeLab collection focuses heavily on incorporating their aesthetics into Nike's classic Windrunner jacket, but our sneaker-crazed staff quickly scrolled through and found the footwear component to the capsule and it doesn't dissapoint with two new Koth Ultra Mids in the mix. Constructed with bonded fabric coated in polyurethane, the Stone Island version of the Koth Ultra is the ultimate weather resistant version of the sneaker. With nothing more than a co-branded tonal leather embossed tongue patch to flaunt the collaboration, the model fits perfectly with Stone Island's outdoors aesthetics and minimal branding approach while taking advantage of Nike's selection of materials. The collection will be available from select NikeLab accounts from the 17th of December, most of the frenzy will be focused on getting ahold of the jackets, so if these hikers are what you're after you might have a better chance at getting them!
