Nike Sportswear collaborations are very few and very far in-between these days, with most of the collaborative releases being a renewed partnership rather than a fresh coupling. Japan’s Mighty Crown isn’t a newbie when it comes to NSW collabs, and for the Holiday 2011 season, Nike Retro fans were in for a real treat when the East Asian music house was selected once again to design their own kicks – the Nike Dunk High and recently re-inserted Nike Sky Force ’88 Low. What’s the opposite of subtle? These bad boys, which clearly don’t shy away from intense materials and combinations, like elephant print, croc-skin, and ostrich. the Mighty Crown x Nike Sportswear releases have begun to pop up at select NSW boutiques ’round the globe, but those limited releases are likely gone by now. Fortunately, Nikestore will stock these babies tomorrow at midnight, so if you don’t want to miss out, check back with Nikestore tomorrow or cop a pair on eBay.
