Just in time for fall Nike is diving in to its archives, taking inspiration from previous creations for its new “Evolution of the Swoosh” collection. The expansive range consists of three stand-out packs, featuring cult classics like the Air Force 1, Air Max Plus and Air Max 97, as well as recent additions like the React Element 55.
Titled “Script Swoosh,” “Sunburst” and “Swoosh Chain,” the packs coat the classic sneakers with a range of designs and colors, ranging from bold colors to writing and logo-centric motifs. The “Swoosh Chain” pack will be available exclusively for children, taking on a ’70s-inspired aesthetic, whilst the rest of the sneakers will be offered in adult sizes as well.
Inspired by the original Swoosh design from 1971, Nike has brought back the logo designed by Carolyn Davidson and has dressed four silhouettes in the eye-catching design. Sporting a minimal color palette of white, black and hints of red, the sneakers are ideal for day-to-day wear.
Lastly, the “Sunburst” pack is inspired by the Swoosh’s 1972 branding which is the year the sportswear giant began expanding into in-house apparel. Arriving in vibrant hues of yellow, red, green and white, the sneakers also sport a playful swirling Swoosh logo, ideal for those looking for a statement sneaker to add to their rotation.
Get ready as Nike’s “Evolution of the Swoosh” collection is hitting Foot Locker’s website as well as stores starting in August, with the “Script Swoosh” pack dropping August 10, the “Swoosh Chain” on August 17 and the “Sunburst” on August 31.
