Well after the February unveil of the John Elliott x NikeLab Vandal High, release details for the sneakers have been announced. Per Elliott's website, the sail and anthracite colorways will be available this week.
Pairs will launch first in store at Colette and NikeLab P75 in Paris on Wednesday, June 21. After that, the sneakers will arrive on the John Elliott site here on Thursday, June 22, at 11 a.m. EST. Additionally, online retailer Mr. Porter will carry the shoes on June 29.
Working with Nike has been a lifelong dream for Elliott, who sent a letter with sneaker designs he'd drawn to the company when he was eight years old. According to the designer, he still has the letter that Nike sent back to this day.
The John Elliott x NikeLab Vandal Highs use tonal suede uppers, leather tongues, and rolled seams to rework this vintage silhouette.
