After its collaboration with COMME des GARÇONS, footwear giant Nike hits the market with its own stacked sneaker model. Dubbed the 'Vandal Surprise,' the shoe entertains a leather and textile upper and a chunky triple-stacked platform with red, blue and white stripes that give off a strong retro aesthetic. The silhouette of the women's sneaker model is also a subtle metallic that captures the attention and directs thoughts to futuristic thematics.

The Nike Vandal Surprise debuts in two colorways — silver, red and blue or black, gold and white. The latter is a sleeker, more luxurious and less out-there version of the former, however both appeal to a certain stylistic preference.

Jumping on the craze for platformed shoes, the new Nike sneaker model is a modern take on the chunky silhouette.
