Rather than scrap their hard work, Nike has instead opted to release many of the pairs dedicated to 2020’s now postponed Tokyo Olympics. Among collaborations from Off-White as well as sacai, the brand has prepared a number of general releases inclusive of the recently revived Air Max Triax 96. Obvious and proud in its connection, the pair attaches “NIPPON” text to its tongue and insole, stamping the country’s namesake with gold thread. But more apparent, the upper arrives covered in polka dots of different shades: the forefoot hues to a more signature red across much of the underlayer while the shapes towards the ankle prefer a darker burgundy in complement to the same-toned lining. White panels construct much of the rest of the upper in smooth leather, refining a reference that culminates with the heel counter’s overt homage to the Japanese flag. Grab an official look at these here and expect a release to arrive at Nike.com hopefully within the coming months.
