As seen on releases such as the Nike Air Max 1 “Sketch To Shelf” pack, the Swoosh has a handful of arrangements that takes the wearer behind the design, embracing an unfinished look via blueprint annotations and measurement symbols. For an upcoming Nike Air Zoom Type, the deconstructed silhouette goes under construction with technical drawing motifs throughout.

Suede uppers are tinted in a cream “Coconut Milk” shade that has also been indulging the uppers of other arrangements for the spring/summer season, including the women’s Air Force 1 Shadow. This shade appears on the eyestays as well, complemented by the pastel “Light Dew” found atop and on the midsole piece. Forgoing a wholly muted color scheme, the heel and tongue feature overlays and stitches in a vibrant “Starfish Orange” and “Mineral Teal.” The technical drawing instructions printed in black distinguish this model from previous offerings. The midsole and Swooshes on the sides denote the height of the logos and how they are to be drawn. On the toe and hindfoot, mini crosshairs are applied to further the design’s blueprint theme. Furthermore, text on the lateral side even includes trademark information regarding the logos and slogans used by the very model. A stacked foam sole with a pearlescent Air unit rounds out the rather experimental look.

Take a closer look at the Air Zoom Type below as you sit tight for the pair to arrive at Nike.com in the near future for $150.
