A.P.C. x NIKE
A closer look at the A.P.C. x Nike collab5-Aug-2012
We had a mini look at the much anticipated Fall/Winter 2012 A.P.C. and Nike collaboration a little while ago, but hardly any info had been released. With the sneakers scheduled to hit stores on August 30th, we can finally take a closer look at the two-piece sneaker collection. For this specially limited collection, A.P.C. have revamped two of Nike’s most iconic sneakers – the Dunk and the Air Max. Instead of opting for the common choice of flashy colours and overt branding, the shoes have been stripped back to basics in a fall palette of faded hues of navy, cream, and brown. The Air Max 1 boasts a navy canvas upper, nicely complemented by tonal laces, a contrasting Swoosh, a white mid-sole, and an outer sole in gum. The Dunk High comes in three colourways, featuring suede and mixed leather/suede uppers, all tonal. The A.P.C. branding is simple and subtle throughout, placed only on the in-sole and inside the tongue. The collection maintains the timeless heritage and classic feel of the two sneakers whilst still breathing a fresh breath of life into the styles. Official release on August 30th.
