Sean Wotherspoon has done it again, teasing us with a self-designed Nike Air Max 1 that we’ll never get our hands on.
Taking to Instagram to show off the design, Wotherspoon explained that he “wanted the kicks to come with a removable overcoat,” fashioned from tweed by Harris Tweed Authority, to brave the infamous London weather. The overcoat attaches to the tongue with a red button, and features a stitched, partial Swoosh.
The rest of the sneaker is bright yellow, evoking a classic raincoat, except for the gray corduroy tongue with an embroidered yellow Swoosh. The sneaker also features white laces, and a blue inner. The removable insoles have a USA flag on the left, and a UK flag on the right.
Sadly this is a one-off, just like Wotherspoon’s awe-inspiring corduroy tearaway Air Max 1 from earlier in the year. Hopefully one day these insanely creative sneakers will get a wider release.
While we wait for a day that will probably never come, let us know if you’d like your kicks to have coats down in the comments.
