One Of Nike’s Most Popular Sneakers In Japan Gets A “Sakura” Upgrade

Nike Air Footscape Retro Sakura Japanese Colorway 01

Cherry blossom season is in full bloom in Japan right now and Nike Sportswear is taking advantage of the beautiful occurrence with a number of exclusive graphic-heavy “Sakura” related releases this Spring 2016 release slate. To the uninitiated, Sakura is the Japanese word for a number of cherry blossom trees and has profound symbolism linking to the transience of life. NSW is upgrading their collection after introducing a Sakura Roshe Run with one of Japan’s favorite Nike retros, the Nike Air Footscape Motion. Known for its asymmetrical lacing system and unique chukka-like outsole (one that’s been repurposed countless times by Nike in years past), Nike drapes the dark grey base with a near-iridescent finish thanks to layers of cartoonish cherry blossoms. Alternate cork insoles come with the pair while reflective 3M detailing lands on the heel. This special edition Air Footscape Motion retro will arrive at retailers on April 2nd, but there’s still no word on sizing or pricing information. Stay tuned for more updates.
