These Nike Footscape Woven Chukka Knit ‘Flat Gold’ & ‘Night Stadium’ sneakers take their inspiration from baseball seams.

Always looking for new design elements or inspirations, this time Nike Footscape came up with a take on one of the most distinct items in sports culture: the baseball. Every baseball is built with seams. The seams hold together the skin and also provide a grip for pitchers and fielders to hold onto when they are throwing the ball. The way you grip the seams in your fingers can greatly effect the way the ball is thrown and how it moves.

Playing on this association with movement, Nike Footscape created these Woven Chukka Knits in two colors: ‘Flat Gold’ & ‘Night Stadium.'
