Nike City Knife II

February 11th, 2009

It has been a while since I saw something fresh from Nike. It seems that they only do crazy colorways or fake vintage these days … So here comes the Nike City Knife II: a foldable lightweight shoe. Kirsten Schambra who is responsible for the design, was inspired by origami structures. She taped a rough concept to a shoe last and developed it further from there. The concept is actually very simple, but I’m not sure if it will appeal to a wide audience. I like them, hey they are made of polygons!

    Sorry to say the Pocket Knife is a really old design, I’m on a plane a lot so I was really looking forward a shoe that could collapse into a carry-on. Nike ended up releasing the Pocket Knife (foldable sneaker) unfortunately minus the origami.

    Hey Derek, indeed the Pocket Knife is from 1998. The City Knife I is from last year.
    Those 2 models look quite different (they’re ugly) than the City Knife II.
