Easily the most adventurous and personalized Nike’s customization platform has been thus far, it’s fitting that its latest iteration be helmed by the ever-eclectic Cactus Plant Flea Market, providing an extension to the many DIY stories they’ve told with each and every one of their Swoosh collaborations crafted prior. Dubbed playfully as “Sponge By You,” the set is one of wholehearted homage to skate culture framed within the constructions of the iconic Blazer silhouette. Deconstructed and unrefined intentionally, the pair boasts exposed padding at its ankle as if cut off forcefully by the skaters themselves. Options between loose knits, quilted fabrications, hairy fleece, and synthetics suedes can be outfitted atop the pair in mismatched order, with accents like eye stays, swooshes, and laces left in your hands to color independently. Wholly connected to their fun-loving ethos, the pair is a patchwork blanket or crocheted masterwork in sneaker form, creating a surprising asymmetry within a system that rarely allows for it. Grab a few looks at the pair and its options right below and expect the builder to go live on August 27th.
