Hiroshi Fujiwara has a thing for teasing his fragment design collaborations with Nike, and now the lauded designer has revealed his take on the Nike by You Zoom VaporFly NEXT%.From first glance, the sneaker looks like a slightly tweaked iteration of the Zoom VaporFly NEXT%, as the upper appears less structural than the general release pair. Additionally, the Swoosh appears higher up on the collar section than the standard pair, while the front graphic now wraps around the entire shoe in a block color with the same shapes leading towards the sole unit, and also bears the statement “Engineered to the exact specifications of world-class runners. Nike Running.”The lightweight knitted upper meets the sole unit via the means of a black front clip, which works its way toward the cream-toned Zoom X-cushioned sole unit. And, of course, as this is a Nike by You pair, it could mean that all of this is customizable while maintaining fragment design’s signature aesthetic and branding.Take a look at the latest Nike sneaker to be teased by Hiroshi Fujiwara above, and stay tuned to HYPEBEAST for more information as news unfolds.In case you missed it, check out the latest issue of Sole Mates.Click here to view full gallery at HYPEBEAST
