Nike introduces their All-White Fall sneaker collection
Fans of clean, crisp trainers that get far-too dirty far-too quickly are in luck as Nike has introduced its new Fall 2017 Sportswear Sneaker collection, an ensemble of aesthetic shoes that are all about embracing this season’s colour of choice: white.
The campaign, shot by celebrity fashion photography duo Mert Alaş and Marcus Piggott and styled by Gadir Rajab, features leading Emirati footballer Omar Abdulrahman in the latest Cortez, Air Force1, and Airmax 90 sneakers.
This Nike news also follows not-so nice news for Al Ain fans that French club Nice have made an attempt to loan the superstar. A previous recipient of an Esquire ‘Man At His Best’ Award, we can't guarantee where exactly Abdulrahman's future in football lies but we can assure you that Omar is a man with a refined taste in trainers.
Commenting on the new collection, the Al Ain captain – who is affectionately known by fans as ‘Amoory’ – said: “I love the variety of this season’s all-white collection by Nike. Wearing white makes any outfit look fresh and effortless. I love wearing my all-white Nike Air Force 1’s, it’s the perfect look and feel for the summer months.”
The new collection includes Amoory's coveted Nike Air Force 1s (starting at Dhs 499) alongside the Nike Cortez (starting from Dhs 469), the Nike Air Huaraches (starting at Dhs 599), and the Air Max 1s (starting at Dhs 699). Which is an entire week’s worth of iconic sneakers that you’ll undoubtedly buy but undoubtedly also be too terrified to wear in case they get scuffed.
Gadir Rajab, photographer, stylist and editor of fashion and culture title, Oyster Magazine appeared equally enthusiastic about the collection: “White is such a timeless colour for summer. It’s clean, cool and classic. From the courts of Wimbledon to runways or street style, a crisp white shirt, or fresh linen trousers with a white classic sneaker, especially the Air Max 97, is my go-to look and my inspiration for summer styling.”
The 2017 Fall Sportswear Collection launches on August 7 and will be available across selected Nike stores in the UAE.
