Riccardo Tisci Reveals a New Nike Collab — Just Days Before It Drops

Find out when and where to cop his Nike Air Zoom Legend.

The relationship between Riccardo Tisci and Nike didn’t end with his NikeLab x RT: Training Redefined collection. Givenchy’s artistic director now reveals their latest project: the Nike Air Zoom Legend.

Tisci’s reimagined version joins his lineup of modernized footwear that proceeds it — counting his four iterations of the Air Force 1, his Dunk Lux High, the Free Train Force Flyknit and Transform Flyknit. The designer tells Vogue:

“We chose this shoe because its story is so closely linked to the nineties as a symbol of youth culture and street style. This style was a street icon at the time. Its story revolves around sports, movement, life by the ocean, and the energy that comes from this lifestyle. That freedom and optimism define my state of mind. I had already worked with the world of surfing, so I feel close to this idea.”

It’s a contemporary take on the old-school basketball silhouette. In his own words:

“The inspiration is very Tisci–it is very much me. The rubber heel and sole are very Nike but with a new interpretation inspired by a futuristic take on Brazil, waves, and movement. The front side is more classic, a sort of opposite of sports. Chelsea boots are my obsession in the male wardrobe. This is a strong shoe with a dual contrast and an experimental style. And the heel had to be important–its aesthetic has always represented strength since ancient Greece, where Achilles’s heel represented the human male force.”

The RT x Nike Air Zoom Legend will come in two colorways, including the jacquard black version pictured above, starting November 11 exclusively at the New York’s NikeLab store in SoHo.
