Mayumi Yamase & Nike Present Their Flyleather Collection For This Summer

Tokyo-based artist Mayumi Yamase and Nike have come together to release a collection featuring the Nike Air Force 1 Low and Nike Blazer Low, both using Flyleather. Flyleather, introduced in 2017, is an engineered leather material that uses at least 50% of recycled leather fibers. That in turn has a lower impact on climate change and reduces the carbon footprint compared to leather.

Yamase, known for her abstract yet playful works, uses community as an inspiration for this AF1 Low and Blazer Low collection. “Community gives me a sense of comfort and fun in my daily life, but it also stretches my imagination and surprises me, leading to discoveries in my own artwork that challenge my expectations”.

The uppers on the Air Force 1 Low and Blazer Low both use a white base with grey suede hits on the lace overlays and tip. with Yamase’s whimsical and colorful touch painted all over the upper. The Air Force 1 Low uses a gum midsole and outsole for contrast and the Blazer Low sticks with the white midsole and outsole for a clean summer vibe.

The Mayumi Yamase x Nike Flyleather Collection Summer 2021 will release on SNKRS, NikeLab MA5, and Dover Street Market Ginza in Tokyo. An MSRP is still unknown but check out our Sneaker Release Dates page for more information when it’s revealed.
