Creative director of Balmain, Olivier Rousteing, has paired up with Nike for his first ever brand collaboration outside Balmain. The result? “Football Nouveau.” A line of glamorous soccer gear in Rousteing’s infamous black and gold color palate. The collaboration includes clothing and sneakers for men and women, but we’ve got our eyes on one shoe in particular. The NikeLab x OR Footscape Magista.
The Footscape Magista combines Nike’s technical textiles with Rousteing’s dark glamour. The shoe itself was designed for advanced playing, but you won’t exactly be seeing these on the soccer field. Rousteing’s design is reworked for more everyday wear, with city sidewalks and nightclub dance floors in mind.
With a Flyknit upper and Phylon midsole, this sock-like sneaker combines incredible comfort with luxurious details. (The recipe for a perfect shoe, in our opinion.) And of course Rousteing embellished the sneaker with his metallic gold touch—on the flyknit embroidery, the heel zipper, and the leather pull-tab.
If you’re lusting after these kicks as much as we are, head here to cop yourself a pair.
