Nike Channels Its Inner Super Hero With Its New Air Kukini “Mighty Swooshers”

Nike has had its fair share of unorthodox silhouettes. One that arguably stands out the most is the Air Kukini, arriving in the year 2000 as part of the Swoosh’s experimental Alpha Project. Now following its “Pixel” edition of the Kukini earlier this month, the sportswear giant is presenting its anime-inspired “Mighty Swooshers” iteration.Taking inspiration from Nike’s Swoosh Man superhero figure, the fictional hero was crated by Ian Campbell, an Olympic athlete, and Nike veteran. Swoosh, the mascot’s official name, was used to bring more eyes to the brand’s Sports Entertainment regime that launched back in 1996. The character’s body suit was designed with bold red Swooshes on the chest and the sides of the head while the base of the protective costume came in a metallic appearance, closely-similar to the latest Air Kukini “Mighty Swooshers” sneaker. The new shoe — designed for “The Mighty Swooshers” collection — is based on a narrative from a fictional comic book. For the appearance of the new Air Kukini, images of the superhero have been printed throughout the upper. A “Metallic Silver” cage is used to cover the top of the silhouette while the upper sits atop a black midsole that is complete with a transparent Air Bubble. Red Swooshes and further black detailing that reads “The Battle of Dimension Six” and “Nike And The Mighty Swooshers” is also printed on the insoles. You can have a closer look at Nike’s Air Kikini “Mighty Swooshers” above and it will be available on the official Nike store in the coming weeks for $120 USD.In other footwear news, Nike is staying cool for the summer with its Dunk High “Blue Chill.”Click here to view full gallery at HYPEBEAST
