Featuring a sole unit borrowed from the Nike Aqua Boot, the new NikeLab Air Zoom Legend x RT is the latest collaborative endeavor from the Swoosh and designer Riccardo Tisci. The silhouette has flowing lines inspired by the merging of ocean and land in Rio de Janeiro, along with traditional gore detailing reminiscent of a Chelsea boot. Tisci worked with NikeLab designers to create two versions of the model, one with a basketball-inspired black mesh upper, colorful heel and ice outsole, the other featuring a grey floral pattern embroidered on a black woven jacquard upper. Both have midsole tooling inspired by Rio's curvy Copacabana sidewalks, along with a heel clip adorned with the RT logo and Nike swoosh branding.
Expect the NikeLab Air Zoom Legend x RT to launch December 8th at NikeLab retailers and nike.com/nikelab.
Release Date: 12/8/16 (Thursday)
