Off the back of the Air Dior launch last week, Nike is continuing its collaborative partnership with Kim Jones. According to sneaker leaker PY Leaks, the Dior Homme Creative Director has lent his vision to the next iconic silhouette, which could be released as early as next year. Reports suggest the sporty Nike Air Max 95 will see a luxury reinvention.

Other than a blacked out silhouette published to Twitter this weekend, the leak account has suggested two colourways will be made available. They have been dubbed the “Black/Volt” and “Black/Total Orange”, set to drop in late 2021. Not much else is known on the luxury partnership, however we can expect a luxury price tag accordingly.

The new collaborative effort is reminiscent to that of Virgil Abloh’s ‘The Ten’ collection which continued to sell out. While the designer continues to work with the swoosh brand, a new cult design cue could be ushered in.
