Alkaline Trio x Nike 6.0 “Heart and Soul” Air Zoom Cush
The action sports 6.0 collection from Nike has looked to punk band Alkaline Trio to embody the brand’s spirit in this latest Air Zoom Cush collaboration titled “Heart and Soul”. The stylings of the new Dunk-esque Cush relate to the band’s history through the use of unique details and materials. Among the highlights are the Chicago Bulls inspired black/red colorway, in homage to Alkaline Trio’s Chicago roots. Furthermore, reflective accents and bike-tread graphics are a tribute to Alkaline Trio and their meeting as respective bike messengers. The all synthetic upper was chosen to reflect the vegetarian nature of each band member. In the midst of a tour to support their latest album, "Agony and Irony", the shoes will see their initial release with a messenger bag at Jacks Retail Shop (Huntington Beach) on June 27th, with a nationwide rollout on July 11th.
