We recently shared with you a look at the Hurley x Nike Free Run+ 3 sneakers, but it looks like there’s another piece to add to the mix with the Phantom Fuse Boardshorts. In regards to the shoes, we have learned that artist and Nike/Hurley collaborator Dalek played a role in the design of the sneakers. The shoes will be releasing in limited numbers on July 14th.

“On the eve of the 2012 Nike US Open of Surfing, Hurley is offering the next generation of award-winning Phantom boardshorts: Phantom Fuse. Corresponding with its release is a limited-edition Nike Free Run +3 Hurley NRG sneaker.
Taking the 4-time SIMA Award-winning boardshort to the next level, Hurley launched the Phantom Fuse on June 15, 2012. The Phantom Fuse boardshort features an advanced version of Hurley’s proprietary “biomimic” waistband (moves with you) paired with Hurley’s iconic Block Party silhouette. The lightest Phantoms to date, Phantom Fuse is the closest thing yet to a second skin.
If the pinnacle boardshort is all about second skin, the pinnacle shoe is all about natural motion. With this in mind, Hurley, Nike and artist James “Dalek” Marshall created a limited- edition Nike Run +3 Hurley NRG sneaker. With only 1,300 being created globally, the Nike Free Run +3 Hurley NRG sneaker will be available in limited quantities at select Nike and Salvation retail locations as well as 225 Forest beginning July 14, 2012.
The Phantom Fuse boardshort and Nike Free Run +3 Hurley NRG sneaker will be showcased during Stabilimentum, an art show curated by Dalek at Hurley’s H Space Gallery from 6-9pm on July 31st, 2012. The art installation features a large-scale expression of Daleks’ Phantom Fuse vision, connecting true innovation in product development and design with true artistic expression. Along with the H Space exhibit, friends of the Hurley brand will showcase their Phantom Fuse-inspired art products, such as a series of LDG fixed-gear bikes and surfboards as well as a collection of skateboards featuring Dalek’s signature artwork.”
