The Nike Chalapuka Sneaker Debuts At NYFW
Introducing the Nike Chalapuka, Nike Sportswear’s latest lifestyle model slated to release this August. The premium silhouette debuted during New York Fashion Week: Men’s, surprising everyone by teaming up with Rochambeau’s SS17 catwalk presentation. Originally a retro running model released in 2001, the Nike Chalapuka featured a unique cage overlay and plenty of room for ventilation, exposing feet to the elements with gaping holes throughout the upper. While the performance model came equipped with vibrant colorways, the pairs featured in Rochambeau’s collection utilize premium materials like suede and leather with neutral shades of burnt sienna and a sandy tan.
