On August 12, the Japanese fashion house – Mihara Yasushino just released the first images of the Spring – Summer 2022 collection including 5 pairs of sneakers modified from the shoe model Nike Air Force 1. Immediately after its launch, the BST received a lot of attention because of its strange design with the pointed toe and air holes on the shoe body and the heel decorated with unique lace details. This shoe also has a thinner sole than regular Nike Air Force shoes and the tongue is embroidered with the MMY character after the Japanese designer’s brand name.
This newly released design has caused controversy on social networks and received mixed comments. Some people think that the new shoe model of designer Mihara Yasushino is quite unique compared to the usual designs and will create a breakthrough for fashion outfits according to unique – strange criteria. However, there are also a lot of comments disparaging the new shoe model that is not highly applicable, looks very monstrous and crazy:
“This is probably the ugliest shoe I’ve ever seen in my life,”
“I’m not going to spend my money on a shoe that’s a faulty version of the Nike Air Force.”
This is not the first time that shoes that are a variation of Nike’s traditional sneaker design have received a lot of controversy. In March, rapper Lil Nas and MSCHF collaborated and released a sneaker model containing human blood named “Satan Shoes – Devil’s Shoes” designed based on the design of the Nike Air Max 97. Despite selling out more than 600 pairs in less than a minute, the company MSCHF was sued by Nike for damaging its image.
