Pigalle X Nike Air Raid sneakers

Pigalle and Nike come together again out of mutual love for basketball to redesign the Nike Air Raid

Taking Nike's famous and much beloved Air Raid basketball sneakers, Pigalle has changed stripped it of its dual-colour palette, to create two monotone designs – in white and taupe-like oxblood.

Unveiling the new collaboration in Paris on June 30, Pigalle kept Nike's detail, from the straps and tactile heel to the "Air Raid" embroidery around the ankle, but added "For Outdoor Use Only" on the shoe's back ridges.

It's all in all a very multi-textured shoe, which the Pigalle monotone design only brings out even more than their dual-tone cousins. It looks as comfortable as ever, too – forget the rules, we'll defy the "For Outdoor Use Only" to walk in the Air Raids indoors when we want to, thank you very much.
