Rush out to a select Nike retailer or hop online with your credit card, the first two styles in Nike’s Weatherman shoe pack hit stores this morning at 8 a.m.
Nike’s description of the weather-themed shoes:
Graphic, Doppler-esque depictions of inclement weather patterns grace the uppers of each shoe. The blue colorway demonstrates a quick transformation from calm to intense, while the red represents the constant pounding of a soaking thunderstorm.
The Air Foamposite One Premium ‘Weatherman’ will set you back a steep $250 while the more economical Air Force 1 CMFT Premium ‘Weatherman’ costs a mere $135.
The third shoe in the Weatherman pack is thermal-themed, and will be released September 28.
Just like weather imagery, these shoes are best appreciated in motion. Here’s a series of animated images (courtesy Nike’s Web site):
Major props to Nike for its taking modern weather imagery and transforming into a trend-setting fashion…
