Nike‘s N. 354 sub-label is known for its conceptual, product-in-process takes on Swoosh silhouettes both new and seminal, and now it’s presented its popular Daybreak Type — a stripped-back take on the original Daybreak — in a lively new “Fur Pack” colorway. Experimenting with tone and texture alike, the “Fur Pack” is full of vibrance and not for the faint of heart.
Most previous takes on the Daybreak Type have used an ultra-minimal mesh for the upper’s base layer, but the “Fur Pack” instead opts for a black textile build with a gridded, ripstop-like pattern. This is overlaid by five different colored pieces: a yellow-gold suede mudguard, a bright blue forefoot overlay, furry mint green eyestays that provide the design’s moniker, rich olive-toned synthetic heel clips and clamshell pink heel tabs.
Branded embellishment arrives via N. 354 hits on the aforementioned heel tabs and the exposed foam tongue’s gold badge, plus the pink outlined Swoosh on both quarter panels. Mint green trims the collar, while down below white EVA foam midsoles and Bill Bowerman-approved black waffle outsoles round off the look.
The Nike Daybreak Type “Fur Pack” will release via Nike SNKRS China on October 22, and is priced at ¥799 CNY (approximately $120 USD).
Elsewhere in the world of Nike, the brand is trying to prevent Warren Lotas from shipping his “SB Dunk Low rip-off” pre-orders after slapping him with a wide-reaching lawsuit earlier in the month.
