The latest addition to Nike's roster of esteemed signature athletes, we've seen Devin Booker's first signature silhouette, the Nike Book 1, make waves with a select range of colorways. As we eagerly await the model's debut in December, this hybrid lifestyle-performance sneaker has added yet another bespoke color treatment to its growing lineup.
The Nike Book 1 "Light Orewood Brown" is a blend of style, functionality, and personal storytelling. Drawing inspiration from the Ashen Slate design, this sneaker seamlessly fuses the ruggedness of workwear-inspired canvas midfoot panels with the luxurious touch of suede overlays. An oversized tumbled leather Swoosh elegantly adorns the midfoot, perfectly complementing the striking safety orange Booker branding on the tongue.
Subtle yet rich sesame hues accentuate the perforated collar and sockliner, elevating the overall visual appeal of the sneaker. However, what truly sets this sneaker apart is its profound connection to Booker's roots. The inside of the tongue tag proudly features an embroidered representation of his family tattoo, adding a deeply personal touch to the design. The insole showcases numbers of great significance to Booker, representing the zip codes from Grand Rapids to Phoenix, encapsulating his journey.
To further emphasize its literary-inspired name, the sneaker's heel proudly displays "Chapter 1" with pull tabs resembling a book's spine and pages, finished in a baroque brown shade. This thoughtful detail pays homage to the rich storytelling tradition that the name "Book 1" embodies.
Underfoot, the pair is engineered for peak performance. It features a 14mm Air Zoom unit in the heel, Cushlon 2.0 foam for responsive cushioning, a midfoot shank for stability, and a semi-translucent rubber outsole for maximum grip and traction.
A release date for this specific colorway has been earmarked for Spring 2024, with concrete information to follow shortly. Until then, enjoy a detailed look at the new colorway below.
