Nike continues their quest to push technology and innovation into lifestyle. The trend is of course most prominent and easiest to translate in the running market. Football makes it a little more difficult, which does of course not mean that they do not try. This time the Street Gato shoe is getting the Nike Sportswear treatment – the outcome is the Nike Woven Street Gato.
“The low profile silhouette with a traditional upper, plus its great performance and style attributes make it ripe for a NIKE Sportswear makeover. This Woven Street Gato is given a luxury treatment using high-grade leathers on the original performance tooling. The addition of a basket-style weave on the upper within the large open panel adds to the luxury effect as well as the all-leather interior on the shoe’s lining.” – Nike
The sneaker comes in three colorways and looks simple, yet very premium. Look out for a release at select stores soon.
