NIKE SB AND LOST ART CELEBRATE THE OLD AND THE NEW OF LIVERPOOL CITY WITH A COLLABORATION THAT GIVES THE CLASSIC BRUIN AND CONTEMPORARY BA SILHOUETTES A FRESH LOOK.
Drawing inspiration from the famous Docklands and the now defunct Liverpool Overhead Railway (LOR) that runs along their length, the two footwear models draw on a rich heritage of diversity and culture that reflects the changing shape of this modern day city.
Representing the old, the no nonsense Nike SB x Lost Art Bruin takes colour and material cues from the original uniforms worn by LOR guards, with black pigskin uppers supporting two woollen swooshes.
The modern day technical Nike SB x Lost Art BA takes on board a colourway that comes straight from the urban and natural landscape that surrounds the LOR and Docklands; the water, brickwork and concrete that have been the lifeblood of the city.
The Nike SB x Lost Art collection represents the generations of skaters that remain united in a city of constant flux, skaters that have been able to seek out a hidden and raw side of Liverpool that sidesteps it’s numerous clichés to embrace it’s strong history and identity.
The Nike SB x Lost Art footwear range launches exclusively through Lost Art Skate Shop and online at lostartshop.co.uk on 14th March 2015 and globally through Nike.com and core skate retailers from 21st March 2015.
