While St. Patrick's Day parties raged over the weekend, news of fresh collaborations, collections and new releases continued. Nike has officially unveiled the KD12, BAPE and F.C.R.B. showed their Spring/Summer 2019 collaboration, adidas Originals released the preview for its upcoming Stormzy collection and Hiroshi Fujiwara teased a possible Beats by Dre collaboration.
Leo Chang, Senior Creative Director for Nike Basketball Footwear took the strobel and used it as the focal point in the KD12's creation. Since the strobel disconnects the athlete from the shoe's cushioning, the Nike team stitched a full-length articulated Air Zoom bag to the upper. Check out "The Day One" colorway of the Nike KD12 below. It will be available on April 6.
