From teaming up with AMBUSH and Ye to developing the world’s first fully 3D-printed sneaker in 2021, Zellerfeld has presided as the industry leader in printing multi-dimensional footwear that boasts more sustainable practices. Furthering their quest toward a future filled with environmentally friendly footwear, the technological brand is teaming up with Chris Brown to release the NAMI Slide.
Marking his first foray into the collaborative sneaker ecosystem, the slip-on silhouette simultaneously unveils the New York brand’s latest technological innovation in ZellerFOAM. Shortening a process that only lasts a few hours, the cutting-edge tooling reduces overall material usage while offering the potential to reduce 3D printing costs in the future. Designed by Nos Ailes in collaboration with the Grammy award winner and streetwear banner The Auracles, the overtly textured tan-treated ensemble mirrors the topographical aesthetic that’s become synonymous with the printed footwear environment.
The NAMI Slide is currently available for pre-order for only 24 hours while the pair will officially release for $185 in late June.
