Following a first look during NYFW: M, Nike has officially taken the wraps off the upcoming John Elliott x NikeLab Vandal High. Having originally hit the hardwood in the early ’80s, the Vandal’s increased collar height, stability strap, durable upper, and pivot-point outsole made it one of the top basketball sneakers of the time alongside the Nike Dunk High and other iconic silhouettes.

Now, NikeLab has tapped John Elliott to reinvigorate the style with monochromatic grey (previously thought to be cream) and black colorways, juxtaposed with a clean white outsole and matching Nike Swoosh and strap accents.

Having debuted at Elliott’s FW17 presentation earlier today, there’s still no official release information so stay tuned and we’ll be sure to update you as learn more.
