It’s hard enough to make one sneaker perfect, but what happens when you try to combine two powerhouse silhouettes into one? NikeLab and Japanese designer fragment design have decided to test this theory, merging the Roshe LD-1000 and Roshe Cortez into a new hybrid sneaker, fittingly dubbed the Roshe Daybreak.
The new silhouette references the retro Nike Daybreak, a runner sneaker that originally debuted back in 1979. Employing that same makeup from the original reference, the Swoosh injects the Roshe Runner’s modern technology into the mix, along with Nike’s Natural Motion tooling lined across its bottom sole. Available in a blue/white colorway, the hybrid sneaker also features a mesh-based upper, finishing off with the classic Nike Air logo adorning the heel and tongue.
The fragment design x NikeLab Roshe Daybreak is set to drop January 28 with a retail price of $135. You can find them at select Nike retailers and on NikeLab.
