This year sees the powerhouse of size? UK reaching a milestone of being 10 years old. Nike has joined in their celebrations and has produced a range of super exclusive shoes just for them. The shoes launch on the 2nd April 2010 (tomorrow). It will be available ONLINE and throughout the stores. With only 240 pairs in each model, do not expect these to stay around for long.
The first instalment is the Air Mariah, using original ACG materials in a classic ACG colourway.
The Lunar Mariah uses the high tech lunar materials in a classic ACG colourway.
When the first Lunar Mariah was released, I fell in love! Although I consider myself as a “sneaker historian”, I am also a tech head! I truly look forward to the newest technologies that Nike bring to the game. The Lunar materials are incredible and the comfort is pretty much incomparable to anything else I have worn, so I am a fan for life. The colourway and materials used on the Air Mariah are said to be taken from a classic ACG Terra shoe and similar. I like that idea, as you bring the past heritage and future technology in to a shoe!
The collaboration is in association with Nike Sportswear and Size? and be sure to get yourself over to your nearest size? store this weekend… (if they are still available). I will be heading over to Carnaby tomorrow to get my pairs!
