Nike has slowly been gearing up to unveil a massive “Plant Dye” collection this year, celebrating natural production methods by paying homage to the plants themselves. This week, we have our first look at the “Pomegranate” pairs, starting with the Daybreak Type.
Over the past several weeks, a flood of upcoming Nike footwear has leaked online, showing a handful of classic Swoosh silhouettes in dozens of colorways, all seemingly inspired by the cork tree and united by a main color palette. The collection appears to be rather large, thus far including the Air Max 95, Air Max 90, Air Max Excee, and now, the Daybreak Type. Each silhouette appears to be available in up to four colorways, also featuring an embroidered image of the cork tree on the tongue. The Daybreak, however, is where the pattern falters, switching from the previously light colorways to an all-black canvas makeup, and now sporting a pomegranate branch embroidery across the tongue. The upcoming “Plant Dye” collection is expanding, making use of other well-known natural colors for other pieces of the project. Other details across the shoe include writing on each heel describing the use of the pomegranate plant, as well as cork heel counters to unite the shoe with the rest of the “Plant Dye” collection.
