With the World Cup still in full swing, there is a lot of focus on Brazil, but we can’t forget about the abundance of art and culture that Brazil is home to. To celebrate this side of the host nation, Nike has collaborated with Brazilian artists Flavio Samelo and his wife Jayelle Hudson to produce two new recreations of the Women’s Nike Roshe Run and Air Max 1 sneakers.
The pair specialise in photography – Samelo focuses on architecture, and on the opposite end of the spectrum, Hudson prefers to photograph organic nature. Together, they collaborated to create a silvery contrast between man and nature.
Their work is heavily focussed on the shoe’s upper, and complemented by neon detail and black-and-white colour blocking.
You can get your hands on the Nike Roshe Run ‘Pulso Forte’ from July 8 online for RRP $120, and the Nike Air Max 1 ‘Foco Bonito’ is available from August from Nike Only Stores, Style Runner and online for RRP $180.
