The NIKELAB BRUIN LEATHER sees the oft-forgotten BACK TO THE FUTURE model make an unexpected comeback in the same colourway as seen in the movie.
Generally, when you think of BACK TO THE FUTURE and NIKE, your first thought is the Mag, but that’s not the only Swoosh-adorned pair Marty McFly wears in the movie. His other choice of Nike footwear is the BRUIN, a shoe that made its hardwood debut back in 1972 and marked the birth of Nike Basketball. Over four decades later, NIKELAB honours this momentous occasion by releasing the BRUIN LEATHER, which sports a similar colourway to an original release, but featuring a full-grain leather upper and cup-soles rather than the archetype suede upper and autoclave outsole. The result is a predominantly white shoe, with only a red Swoosh and heel panel breaking things up, which really stands out due to the lack of branding on the tongue and heel. This may not be the Back To The Future release that we were all hoping to see today, but it’s still a great-looking shoe.
The NIKELAB BRUIN LEATHER drops on WEDNESDAY 21 OCTOBER and will be available via the banner below.
