Blurring the lines between boots and sneakers, the latest collaborations between 1017 ALYX 9SM designer Matthew M. Williams and Nike promise versatility if nothing else. The higher silhouette features a sock-like design with a Nike Free Run sole unit, paired with a chunky Vibram outsole that uses velcro straps to hold it in place. A similar Vibram outsole can be seen in the second design, which has a lower cut, a zippered opening from the collar to the footbed, and a mixed upper made from nylon, suede, and Flyknit. Merely teased from Williams' Instagram account, they're expected to drop later in the year.
