After a previous collaboration with Japanese women’s label, SLY, on a limited edition Terminator in March, SLY is back in the collaboration game with Nike to produce two models, a mid top and a low top version, of the Air Troupe. Both brands decided to go with an 80s retro vibe, drawing inspiration from the booming hip-hop culture three decades ago. The shoes are colorful in a mix of neons and bright colors crafted from suede, leather and canvas.
The low-top version is more colorful in a bright blue canvas with purple and neon green accents, featuring a non-slip ankle patch to support all activities and moves for the girls who dance. The mid-top version is more subtle in a black canvas upper with the same purple and neon accents, with a cutout stretchable ankle strap that make slipping into the shoes easier.
These shoes will be available for purchase starting Sep 5 at four SLY locations in Taipei, Taiwan, and will be available at select Nike retailers starting Sep 19.
Release Dates: September 5th (Saturday), September 19th (Saturday)
