Nike presents the Nike Corduroy Pack: Where the fabric takes the spotlight

nike Corduroy

What do you think of when you hear the word "corduroy"? Perhaps pants, jackets, or even the word "vintage" may cross your mind, as it is typically featured in collections that are far from streetwear culture and identified with a public not recognized as part of that particular circuit.

Corduroy is not one of those materials that shoe manufacturers tend to work with, but just last March it was used to position itself as one of the materials to consider for future releases. Sean Wotherspoon, the designer who in collaboration with Nike created the Air Max 1/97 for Air Max Day, was charged with making sure a sneaker with this type of material would be a success saleswise, all while simultaneously changing the rules of the game.

The democratization of corduroy as a manufacturing material has come at a perfect time for Nike, as it begins to utilize the fabric in its general product line. Proof that can be seen in this new collection the Swoosh brand presents: the Corduroy Pack, which has more an aura of a collaboration than that of a continous brand model.

Some of the brand's most classic silhouettes like the Air Force, Air Max 95, Blazer Low, and Air Max 97, are now seen in a completely revamped look. 

All of them feature an upper with cream colors as a base, followed by the integration of corduroy and leather of the highest quality to make up a final striking product. Moving over to the interior, we find a sock lined interior also made of corduroy, which helps to regulate and maintain the temperature of the wearer's corduroy pack

Find this new collection from Thursday, 17th May at SVD.
