2021 was unfortunately devoid of any Cactus Plant Flea Market collaborations. But we know with certainty that the brand would have easily climbed the ranks of the top 10 if they had appeared. Such is likely to be the case this year, though, as Cynthia Lu and the team at Nike have created a nike dunks black and white that comfortably basks in expressive, nature-inspired absurdity.
The air jordan 11 low bred for 2021 will arrive is GS sizing as well as men’s, celebrating the colourway’s 20th anniversary. The ice-cold scheme first appeared back in 2001 before getting a retro in 2010, so this version has been quite a few years in the making. Manufactured with a higher-cut patent leather, the ‘Medium Grey’, white, and ‘Cool Grey’ colour palette is again emblazoned by the Jordan Brand’s signature icy translucent outsole.
Shining in glossy patent-leather, the nike outlet online vapormax was first seen on Jordan’s feet during the fabled 1995 Playoffs, a little sooner than the folks at Nike had intended. As revealed by Tinker Hatfield, Jordan was so in love with the AJ11 that he went against the designer’s wishes, lacing up the legendary sneaker despite instructions from the brand to keep ’em on ice.
From a design perspective, the pair ostensibly expands on the themes of the usesmoother.com before it. Rather than feature DIY’d elements, however, the pair further explores the opposite side of those gardening motifs. For example, the sole is entirely encased in mud, with no part of the tooling underneath visible. Above, grass-like suedes overlay the upper, sitting atop a quilted base that could be a reference to gloves or similar gear. As for branding, the white paint of the oversized Swoosh is hastily applied, while the warped check and symbols of Yin and Yang embroider with a slightly more refined execution.
