Frequent Nike collaborator Virgil Abloh is at it again with these new Terra Kiger 5 colorways, of the Nike Zoom and Off-White outfits.
The entire collection, dubbed Athlete in Progress, salutes the unbreakable confidence held by runners. In addition, they take the enduring, impassioned power of marathon runners and form into a silhouette that balances performance and post-run aesthetics.
You’ll find an array of track-oriented running spikes on the bottom of the shoe’s Zoom sole. They make the pair perfect for on and off-road adventures. There are technical lacing anchors here, too. Plus a lightweight upper that provides cloud-like support to make sure you’re unburdened while hightailing across the field.
“I started talking with Nike about this women’s running project last summer and at the time, I was very much inspired by the aesthetic and style of track and field athletes,” said Abloh. “As a result, I invited some of Nike’s elite track and field champions to participate in my SS19 Off-White runway show as the natural forerunner to developing and showcasing the collection.”
If you’re big on Off-White branding, you’re not going to like the detailing work on these kicks. They appear a bit on the lace-tag, secured atop the shoe’s specifically developed tongue. However, this is merely a minor blemish on an otherwise excellent pair of shoes, to be sure. And you’ll be focusing on running, anyway, to care much about that.
Nike is releasing three Terra Kiger 5 colorways. One’s a White, Metallic Silver, Sail, and Safety Orange combo. Another’s an Electric Green, Metallic Silver, and Sail combo. The final one’s a Black, Metallic Silver, White, and Pink Blast combo. The kicks come out June 27.CHECK IT OUT
