Women’s Air Revolution Sky Hi “City Pack”
Since the introduction of the wedged sole, female sneakerheads around the world have a new way to show their love for kicks without having to wait for grade school sizes of mens’ shoes. Now, Nike Sportswear is celebrating all women around the world with their Nike Women’s Air Revolution Sky Hi “City Pack.” All five installments of the City Pack are crafted from premium materials and each sneaker in this limited edition collection grabs bold and creative inspiration from the city that it takes its name from. The collection is comprised of NYC, London, Tokyo, Milan and Paris, five fashion forward cities world-wide that each have their own unique personalities and cultures. They will be running for $200 a pair at UBIQ starting Saturday, October 26, in-store and at UBIQlife.com.
First to release was the “NYC” which focused on the edgy, concrete jungle vibe of the Big Apple. This black-on-black snakeskin pattern reflects this by taking inspiration from the city’s rain-slicked cobblestones and the iconic uniform street style. “London” is made of warm distressed oxblood leather which is a reference to the look of the traditional British workman’s boot. There’s even a simplified Union Jack flag across the tongue. Inspiration for this English chapter comes from Saville Row tailoring and the British 80’s punk style. Across the English Channel, “Paris” reflects a feminine, sport chic vibe that is displayed in patriotic style with the colors of the French flag speckled onto the all-white premium leather. The City of Lights is an inspiration for street style and high-end fashion for the rest of the world and the silver Swoosh and the splatter effect throughout the shoe is very reminiscent of early Impressionist paintings. Right next door in Italy, “Milan” is carefully crafted to reflect Italian women’s flair for casual elegance. The classic Florentine craftsmanship is the idea behind this elegant sneaker with pops of modern color, distinctive speckle in the midsole and premium, tooled leather in the upper. A stamped floral pattern accents the leather for the street-chic fashion-minded ladies. And finally, “Tokyo” takes on the traditional history of Japan with their Old World fabric-dying craft, known as Kasuri which informs this sneaker’s indigo-hued weave. To represent modern Tokyo, a vivid accent color is used as a fresh contrast. A special lace dubrae and the embossed tongue pulls all five shoes together in the pack. Each shoe also features that signature Air Revolution strap which allows for a snug and supportive fit so keep your ankle safe and your style high.
All five shoes of the Nike Women’s Air Revolution Sky Hi “City Pack” will be available Saturday 10/26 for $200 each, 10AM at UBIQ Walnut and 11AM online.
