WHITELIES appreciates the sneaker liaison of the year between NIKE & Virgil Abloh by presenting an exclusive release series of all ten reconstructed classics. NIKE x Virgil Abloh: Ten Icons Reconstructed launches globally at NikeLab stores and selected retailers like Colette, Dover Street Market, Voo Store, Comme de Garcons or SOTO Store beginning November 9, 2017.
The Nike Zoom Vaporfly is part of a constant crusade to cut finishing times that was created as part of the Breaking2 bid to crack a two-hour marathon. Efficiency is the key and this design incorporates ZoomX midsole foam for a sense of perpetual sense of propulsion during distance runs. Intended to deliver a ride that's more economical to shave those essential seconds, the ultra breathable, stripped-down looks are visually striking too. Minimalism through necessity means a unique sense of transparency that evokes past experiments in the power of less like 2003’s featherweight Mayfly design. These state-of-the-art responses to the needs that have driven the brand since the start connect with an evolving appetite for innovation in everyday wear. From the arresting heel to toe offset to the near seamless upper, this speed-orientated silhouette is pure progression.
