The future of the Nike Zvezdochka returns to celebrate the shoe’s 10th anniversary.
This space-inspired silhouette was Nike CEO Mark Parker’s favorite Nike design that was designed by Marc Newson.
The Nike Zvezdochka was the result of landmark engineering. Modeled entirely on a computer, the shoe featured a modular design. Four interlocking, interchangeable parts were constructed: the outer cage, the interlocking outsole, the innersleeve and the insole. These parts could be worn in multiple combinations, together or separately, for diverse functions and environments.
The breathable perforated cage formed the base for the interlocking parts. Fitting the foot like a second skin, the innersleeve was crafted with flexible and resistant materials to cover the foot and help protect it from the elements. The interior sock liner featured a Nike Zoom Air unit in the heel for added cushioning. And the interlocking outsole snapped into the perforated cage to create the foundation of the shoe.
