The Swoosh have a new training silhouette called the Air Max Alpha Savage. It’s an aggressively designed sneaker designed for the wide range of movements made in the gym or on the sports field.
Displaying elements of 90s sneaker design, we see a large gusseted mesh tongue with equally big pull-tabs. Moulded mesh inserts around the ankle give the shoe visual structure and contrasting colour-blocking. The upper is sleek in its seamless construction and leads to a segmented midsole and flat, grippy outsole.
This is the first adult’s sneaker designed by Leon Witherow, also known as prestology on the internet. Get them soon from Nike online.
View this post on InstagramMy first shoe that I designed for the training category just launched: the Air Max Alpha Savage. Feeling very proud to be part of the team who brought this shoe to life and very honored to work with a crew of people with an incredible amount of knowledge in their field. The shoe is inspired by the muscularity of the human form. The exaggerated forms of the segmented tooling represent the separate muscle bellies that combine to form the human body, while also taking inspiration from the classic late 90’s Nike Cross Training DNA. The flowing curves and lines on the upper again draw inspiration from the human form, but keen eyes will also notice some of that classic podular/segmented language of late 90’s Air Max product making an appearance too. One of my favorite bits of the shoe is the cheeky gusseted tongue which creates a shroud over the top of the foot and flows in to the vamp. Wanted to give a MASSIVE thanks to all the amazing people who were instrumental in making this shoe happen; the OG @rookie8288 on development, @lauradashwade on materials, @tatecreate on color and Ryan Beanie Boy Bucci on the marketing side. Ya’ll crushed It!! On to the next shoe 🤷🏼♂️. #prestology #niketraining #teamnike #swooshgang #nikegang #kicksonfire #niketrainingclub #conceptkicks #footweardesign #kickstagram #kicks0l0gy #igsneakercommunity #igkicks #shoedesign #hypebeastkicks #highsnobietysneakers #complexkicks #sneakerfreakerfam #sneakerfreakermag #sneakerholics #sneakerporn #snkrhds #sneakershouts #sneakernews #sneakersaddict #sneakerfreaker #solenation #solecollector #soleperfect #walklikeus
