Due to their unique look and design, the Zvezdochka shoes have never enjoyed a mass market release since being introduced back in 2004. But for its 10 year anniversary, Nike has decided to launch the largest release since. With its sleek body and perforated skin, the Zvezdochka shoes will appeal to future-obsessed individuals with an eye for stylish sportswear.

The Zvezdochka shoes was originally inspired by the modular footwear worn by astronauts at the Russian Space Institute. The name of the sneakers refers to the sixth Russian dog sent into space. They certainly have a sci-fi appeal about them. The Zvezdochka shoes "are composed over four intelocking layers: a breathable cage, a flexible inner sleeve, an interior sock liner, and a perforated outsole," writes Fast Co Design.
