Get prepared for a fluid combination of Nike classics and fashionable taste. Steven Alan is best known for his use of high-quality materials on his signature apparel, so it shouldn’t hurt us that Alan received free-range in materials when he designed the Nike Toki, Nike Magma AC, Nike Lava Dome, and Nike Talache Low. Steven Alan has the invaluable ability to make even the most simple and toned-down of colors stick out in a large crowd, a sublime tool used for this collaborative project. Check out his take on the Nike Lava Dome; it features a grey suede and nylon upper with three different swoosh colors. He’s also re-tooled the Nike Toki to feature an elastic inseam for the true lifestyle boot appeal. The Magma features a full suede upper, while the Talache goes to opposite route with a full ballistic-nylon construction. The Steven Alan x Nike Sportswear Footwear Collection will drop tomorrow, January 21st at Steven Alan retailers so continue reading for a look at the collection and let us know what you think.
