It was around this time last year that the masterminds behind Nike‘s exclusive HTM line (made up of style ambassador Hiroshi Fujiwara, Nike design legend Tinker Hatfield and Nike CEO Mark Parker) released their first collection of footwear built with Nike’s groundbreaking Flyknit technology. This year’s follow-up from the venerable trio is the Nike HTM Flyknit Chukka, utilizing the form-fitting, virtually seamless Flyknit fabrication on a classic chukka boot silhouette. Additional benefits include Nike Flywire that’s knitted directly onto the upper, plus a Lunarlon sole unit that provides lightweight, springy cushioning. Two available colorways take on a wintry “Snow Style” finish, one featuring predominantly grey tones with white and blue highlights, the other using a blue color palette with grey and white highlights. Both are set to launch this Saturday at 1948 London.
