Nike F.C. Korobka collection | Sneakers moving from the pitch to pavement


Written by Mathias Boughey-Svendsen

From pitch to pavement once more, but this time in a unified red makeover across all four football boot silos. From Russia with love...

With the Nike F.C. collection the Swoosh have been pioneering the shift from football on the pitch to the streets, and throughout the last two years they have been finding new ways of reimagining their football boot lineup as sneakers. They now release a quadruple threat launch, with each shoe finding its own way to show off a deep red tone.

Continued below.

Each Nike F.C. update has, ever since it was first presented in 2014, taken inspiration from a great number of the world’s football hubs and this AW16 collection is no different. Just like the accompanying selection of streetwear, these Nike F.C. Zoom Mercurial XI Flyknit, Nike F.C. Roshe Tiempo VI, Nike F.C. Free Hypervenom II and Nike F.C. Air Footscape Magista Flyknit therefore all get their style inspiration from Russian pickup football, which goes by the name Korobka.

With design inspiration so deeply rooted in small-sided football on the streets, Nike knew that their aesthetic execution of the sneakers had to reach the same heights. That’s why each sneaker features various bits of detailing, like the subtle gold writing on the heel, which further elevates the overall look. These will certainly appeal to anyone, who has the style to pull them off.
