Hiking High Tops

The Nike Air Force 1 High Hiker Shoes are a Stylish Way to Get Around

— January 14, 2010 — Fashion
Hiking boots have never been known for their stylish looks. That may be changing this Spring.

Nike has announced their new hiking boot-inspired Air Force 1s, dubbed the “Air Force 1 High Hiker.” These shoes sport a deep burgundy coloring stacked on top of a clean white rubber sole. The High Hikers come laced with durable two-toned yellow/burgundy athletic laces, which are reminiscent of their hiking boot cousins.

They’re set to be released as quickstrikes (limited release, exclusive retailers), so pick them up while you still can. Currently, they are already available at select retailers in Asia.

The burgundy bombs are to be released in North America this spring 2010. If you can’t wait until the birds start chirping later this year, you can import them from Asia online at Kasina.
Trend Themes
1. Fashionable Hiking Shoes - Footwear brands can focus on creating hiking boots that put a stronger emphasis on style without sacrificing comfort and functionality.

Industry Implications

2. Fashion - Fashion brands can explore collaborations with outdoor and athletic brands to create unique products that appeal to consumers looking for both style and functionality.
3. Outdoor Recreation - Outdoor recreation brands can partner with fashion brands to create fashion-forward and functional products that cater to the growing demand for stylish outdoor apparel.
