 NASH MONEY X NIKE AIR MAX 360 X VISVIM FBT

What the hell is this??? Its a sneaker 3 way!!!

 

 To me, this came out of left field. I mean look at this thing; its a monster! Air Max 360 with the designer touch of Nash Money and Visvim.

This is a custom make (not for release) from Nash Money. It’s a combo of the Visvim FBT and Air Max 60 (and it would seem it would also include a little Air Woven)

Here is a clip from SneakerFreaker about the sneaker:

It’s a custom and it’s probably the best release of the year! Designed by Nash Money from the UK, this insane handstitched model combines a Visvim FBT with an Air Max 360 – the result is a future classic that never will be. Or will Nike find it too had to resist making this wannabe hybrid a reality? We caught up with the strong fingered Nash to ask him wassup in the world of Nash Money.

And here is a little bit of why Nash made it:

 I always wanted to make a hybrid, it was just a matter of how and with what. When I first saw the Air Max 360 I knew it would be possible to do a hand-stitch custom and make it clean. The problem was what shoe to match it with. When I saw the ‘one time only’ pack I was a bit gutted. But it was kind of a blessing in disguise as it forced me to think out of the ‘Nike box’ and create the Elk skin FBT 360

I think it is pretty interesting. I do not see Nike getting into the whole “this other sneaker designer X this guy” type of sneaker. It would be nice, but I doubt they will do it so they can keep their sneakers “pure”.

What do I think of this? Its ok. I like the idea and the execution of it more than the actually look. I guess this is one of those sneakers you need to see in person.

Although at this angle it looks way better:
