NikeLab X Stone Island
NIKELAB x STONE ISLAND CELEBRATES THE « WINDRUNNER » Yr.
NikeLab x Stone Island are proud to announce an unique collaboration to reinterpret the iconic Windrunner model via new fabrics and technologies. Created in 1978 by Nike’s first designer, the Nike Windrunner is the primary piece from the brand to be worn by athletes before and after athletics competitions. Since then, the mannequin became an iconic piece worn by all people, from the streets to the catwalk. In 2016, Nike and Stone Island merge their craftsmanship and distinctive types to create a brand new and innovative version of the Nike Windrunner. The hood and herringbone sample is fabricated from Mussola Gommata fabric, a mix of mild muslin cotton and polyurethane. The Windrunner’s body is product of Nylon Steel, an exclusive metallic fabric composed of nylon handled with a resin process. These compositions give waterproofness qualities to it and protect from the wind. The Windrunner is padded with PrimaLoft® Insulation Technology, a mixture of fabrics which allow to create small air pockets to extend thermic insulation and lightness. On the occasion of the Windrunner year, also the iconic sneakers Nike Air Mowabb has been reinterpreted. Comfortable and resistant, these sneakers enable free natural movement for lovers of walks.
