Taking inspiration from the futuristic and quite ambitious energies of the auto industry’s many concept cars, Nike is launching a three-way series that encapsulates their newfound affinity for innovation and full-blown experimentation, bringing to life three silhouettes: the D/MS/X, THE10TH, and the N. 354 — the latter being what was once dubbed the Drop Type LX.
Each of these three new footwear lines is grounded by a defining design vernacular, and their resulting collections, which include a mix of classic and fresh silhouettes, carry an aesthetic continuity.
Now, the archives are serving another purpose: the starting point for N. 354. Together, DNA’s collected items are used to spark new ideas that explore and push the boundaries of footwear design. Simultaneously standing for the past, present and future, the mark encourages an unapologetic celebration of raw ingenuity.
For The10th line, Nike celebrates co-founder Bill Bowerman’s days serving as a member of the 10th Mountain Division of the United States Army. The silhouettes will come constructed with more utility and outdoor inspiration. The debut pair feats woven mesh material and pebbled leather atop a carved React midsole.
Performance-inspired designs will make up the Dimsix lineup with the initial silhouette incorporating popular elements like translucent overlays across the upper and a chunky outsole.
Grab a detailed look at each from the forward-thinking collection below and expect to see them hitting select retailer as well as Nike.com later this month.
