4ELEMENTS-Nike-Air-Flow-x-Water

Sneaker Navigator teamed up with Smokers Excellence & local artist Dominik Rüegg for the “4ELEMENTS” project where 4 classic OG silhouettes each are fused with one of the 4 elements. The pre-scientific concepts in Ancient Greece, of earth, water, air, fire, and earth (aether), which were proposed to explain the nature and complexity of all matter in terms of simpler substances.

FIRE wants to burn,

WATER wants to flow,

AIR wants to rise,

EARTH wants to bind.

Today we take a look at the first of four releases, the Nike Air Flow OG x Water. Inspired by the japanese waives and culture, the iconic runner is illustrated with the legendary “The Great Wave” aka “The Great Wave off Kanagawa” original created by Ukiyo-e art between 1830 and 1833. Fused with the 1989 released Bruce Kilgore designed runner sought to mix the ideas of comfort and breathability that all racers look for when competing in maraton. The Nike Air Flow OG, rereleased on June 2011, is a tribute to one of Nike’s more classic runners. Released as a Tier-Zero sneaker, making them a coveted trainer to any sneakerholics collection. Released in two colorways, the sneakers came out in conjunction with a nu-retro. Dropping next to the Nike Lunar Flow in an old versus new pack, the Nike Air Flow OG saw a rebirth of a classic runner that had not seen a retro since its initial release in 1989.”
