Trend Alert: Nike Canvas Kicks
It’s difficult to decide whether canvas sneakers deserve such an important title like “Trend Alert”. Canvas sneakers have a long history, Converse’s Chuck Taylor All Stars, Vans and more have made their signature look one made of canvas.
Please believe that canvas has its benefits- it’s way easier to break in a set of canvas kicks as opposed to tough or tight leather sneakers. Canvas is easily cleanable, and durable, although it may not be as durable as your average leather sneaker.
Nevertheless, Nike is taking notice, and they seem to be churning out more canvas sneakers than before, and we here at Drjays.com are pleased. Here are some of the creme de la creme:
SWEET CLASSIC HIGH CANVAS by Nike
SWEET CLASSIC HIGH CANVAS (black) by Nike
WMNS SWEET CLASSIC HI CANVAS by Nike
While the latter three have quite the similar look it doesn’t detract from the dopeness especially with the suede/leather trim and screen printed logos on the side. A huge honorable mention belongs to the Nunca x Nike Sweet Classic which will commemorate the upcoming World Cup, with it’s savage graffiti style and its lack off the Nike swoosh.
I just returned from Brazil (where graffiti artist Nunca is from) and the street art in that country is amazing. Can’t wait to see more of the artist collaborations which include James Jarvis and Mister Cartoon.
