The footwear collection consists of a mix of heritage and modern Nike styles. The culture of running is celebrated via the Air Max 1, Air Max 90, Nike Roshe Run, and for the first time, vintage running favorite the Nike Internationalist receives a Liberty treatment. Also included are basketball classic Nike Blazer and the Dunk Sky Hi — a feminine take on the classic Dunk.

Each style has been wrapped in an assortment of three of Liberty London’s signature fabric designs: Anoosha, a 1930s print featuring blossom and bell flowers; Lora, a print based on a 1970s version of William Morris’s “Willow” pattern; and Crown, a design based on various paisley block prints from Liberty’s Merton print works from the late 19th to early 20th century. Each design is characterised by a fresh summer blue floral palette.

The Nike x Liberty footwear offering is arranged into two distinctive collections, each featuring an assortment of Nike’s most celebrated styles.

In the first collection, the Air Max 1, Nike Roshe Run, Dunk Sky Hi and the Nike Internationalist have been given a summer makeover with a patchwork-inspired mix of the Anoosha, Lora and Crown Liberty prints. Each print is stitched side by side, similar to a patchwork quilt, on the shoes distinctive panels. The shoes are completed with unique rugged rope style laces, resulting in a bohemian look.

The second collection embodies a stripped-back crisp look. The Nike Roshe Run and Dunk Sky Hi feature the Liberty Crown fabric, while the Nike Blazer is in the Liberty Lora.

This season, the Nike x Liberty offering also includes apparel pieces that similiarly reflect the culture of running. The Nike Tempo Short, Windrunner Jacket and Vest carry the same floral print as the footwear collection, creating a full summer sportswear look.

The Nike x Liberty footwear and apparel collection launches exclusively in Liberty London on April 7, and at Nike retailers globally from May 7.
