While this definitely isn’t Michael Lau’s first Nike collaboraton, it could be his best one yet. To celebrate the multidisciplinary artist’s “COLLECT THEM ALL!” exhibition, the Swoosh has unveiled a commemorative Nike SB Blazer Low that references Lau’s work and art production, and here’s what you need to know.
Simply dubbed the ‘Salvator Michael‘, the special Blazer Low features a tough-wearing canvas construction that’s graced with Lau’s clean painting style in blue, brown, and white strokes. Premium leather makes its way to the heel, while a nylon pull tab arrives on the heel, bearing a striking resemblance to lot cards typically seen at art auctions.
Down below, a clean vulcanised rubber midsole is present, complete with staples that surround the entire shoe for an industrial look and feel. To round it all off, the Chinese artist’s signature is pencilled in around the heel of the shoe.
If you’re a huge fan of the Nike SB Blazer Low ‘Salvator Michael’, it’s scheduled to release on August 18th. All proceeds made will benefit China’s skateboarding community. Let us know if you’re feeling these!
