Amidst the Dad-shoe phenomenon that’s been flooding the streets and algorithms, the Swoosh powerhouse reveals a sashiko-influenced Nike Zoom Vomero 5. The visual epitome of 2000s steez, this dynamic reimagining brings the archival runner into the modern day through an intricate blend of character and functionality.
Initially created with performance-runner intent, the Zoom Vomero 5 was quickly rose to popularity due to its plush cushioning, ideal for a long run on the trail. However, as with most 00s runners, we’ve seen a significant change in the audience indulging in this sneaker genre. Thanks to the undeniable resurgence in y2k trends, Dad-shoe silhouettes are IN – championing other Nike bangers like the P-6000 and Shox. Within this dynamic ‘Sashiko’ offering, abstract textures blend together for a distinctive outcome, the perfect sneakers to pair with a laid-back neutral ‘fit. Let’s get into the details.
Working atop a neutral canvas base, the silhouette hosts unique panelling throughout the upper. Utilising a selection of leather, suede and TPU overlays, a tonal beige hue sets the mood for an earthy palette. Paying homage to traditional Japanese stitching, the collar flaunts an intricate sashiko-patterning, injecting yet another layer of edge into the silhouette. A chocolatey Swoosh graces the sidewalls, complimenting the shoe’s outer which also sports the hue. We’d pair the offering with an oversized beige tracksuit for a minimum-effort-maximum-steez type of vibe, letting the creps do all the talking.
The Nike Zoom Vomero 5 Sashiko (FZ5051-121) is anticipated to land sometime in SPRING ‘24. Patience is key – and in our books, these kicks are well worth the wait. However, if you’re after something to quench your sneaker thirst asap, follow the banner to shop Nike’s current Zoom Vomero 5 offering…
