Between the Big Swoosh and the Swoosh Hunter, there’s a torrent of laceless Nike shoes in the mix at the moment. I guess the future has arrived. And here’s another harbinger of that silver-jumpsuited laceless 22nd century: the Nike Air Shibusa.
Clearly predicated on easy, casual comfort, the Nike Air Shibusa sports a sleek, streamlined mesh upper. A traditional tongue is present, and even the standard lacing area, but elastic straps stand in for laces in a futuristic move. In fact, factoring in the minimalist sole unit, that grey pair could almost be a Nike MAG Low. . . .
Take a closer look at both initial Nike Air Shibusa offerings below, now dropping overseas, and stay tuned for US release info.
