Longtime collaborators, Nike and Liberty of London, have added something new to the mix, denim. For their Summer 2014 collection, Nike had expressed interest in incorporating denim into the line, and Liberty chose vintage inspired designs from their archives, with prints dating from the 1930s to the 1970s, and reprinted them on denim. The fabrics were then used on Dunk Sky Hi, Blazer, Internationalist, and Air Max styles. The shoes are finished with dark blue and burlap style trim and rope laces. The collection launched online and in-stores April 7th and prices start at 105.00.
