Nicole McLaughlin Lends Her Talents To HOKA And The Mafate Three2

Updated November 2nd, 2023: A release date is confirmed for November 3rd, 2023 at hoka.com and select retailers globally.

Nicole McLaughlin is practically a native of the sneaker industry, as she started her career as a Graphic Design Intern at Reebok. Things, then, quickly came full circle for the multidisciplinary artist, as her upcycled projects earned her a collaboration with her former employer, Vault By Vans, and now HOKA ONE ONE.

Teased by the designer herself, Nicole McLaughlin’s first joint effort with HOKA is centered around one of the footwear brand’s newest silhouettes: the Mafate Three2. Approaching the shoe in a way not too dissimilar to her Vans Slip-On, McLaughlin has opted to build around the runner’s existing design, which combines elements from the franchise’s second and third installments. Much of this, however, is obscured by a detachable, protective outer shroud, whose mix of canvas and ripstop is layered with colored trims and stitching as well as both “nicolemclaughlin” and “HOKA” branding.

Enjoy an early look at the Nicole McLaughlin x HOKA Mafate Three2 right here. At the time of writing this, a release date has not yet been confirmed; it’s likely further details will be revealed soon, however, so sit tight.

In unrelated news, the Korn adidas Shoes are slated to release next week.
