Nike Air Zoom Legend by Riccardo Tisci  Out November 11

Did you miss Riccardo Tisci and Nike collaborations? Well, rejoice ‘cause the magic duo’s back! After working on the Air Force 1 and Dunk, designer Riccardo Tisci join forces with the sportswear giant once again and this time the ‘victim’ of his creativity is Air Zoom Legend.

The shoe comes in two colorways: jacquard black with black and white details, and (our favourite) mesh black with a rainbow-hued heel.

Talking to Vogue, Tisci described the collaboration as “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.

He added “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.

Riccardo Tisci x Nike Air Zoom Legend will be available tomorrow, November 11, exclusively at the NikeLab store at 21 Mercer Street in New York. They’ll be available online and at other retails later this year.
