Nike & Geoff McFetridge

Launched in October this year, long-time Nike collaborator Geoff McFetridge selected the classic silhouette of a premium suede SB Blazer for his latest sneaker-based project…

Los Angeles-based McFetridge creates captivating artworks on how the lives of artists and skateboarders (McFetridge is both) intersect and each of his distinct pieces embodies a different element of a unifying theme: independence. ‘That’s a reality of creativity to me,’ explains McFetridge, ‘it’s not just about invention. Skateboarding is about editing. You are encouraged to be an individual at every turn.’

With off-white suede and accents of orange throughout, the shoes feature various gloss black hand-rendered typographic elements, including a hand-drawn Nike Swoosh.
