adidas Originals offers up new iterations of the Nite Jogger model this month, reinterpreting the iconic road running sneaker through another unmissable aesthetic update. The reflective silhouette returns to stake its claim as an essential for any night time creator, backed with a campaign created by a global network of artists working in their fields of expertise.
With music by electronic duo Mount Kimbie, British artist and filmmaker Frank Lebon directed the campaign film as a poetic ode to the people and things that thrive in spaces generated by darkness. The campaign demonstrates how night time can act as the perfect backdrop for expression. Shining a light on three young creators, the film features New York rapper Wiki, London born poetic singer Obong Jayar, and Cai, a spoken word poet and member of Say it Out Loud Tokyo.
Illuminating its wearer after dark, the campaign shows how the Nite Jogger silhouette brings together function first technology and forward-thinking design, in order to push today’s nighttime creator firmly to the forefront. Harnessing the reflective hi-vis technology of its past iteration, the silhouette is engineered for those who know it’s never too late to pursue their vision.
Accompanying the film are photographs shot on film by London based photographer and multi-media artist Bafic, which oscillate naturally between day and night, demonstrating the unrelenting creative spirit that Nite Jogger shoes seek to embody.
Returning this month, the new Nite Jogger sneakers feature lightweight nylon ripstop, soft mesh knit, and suede overlays. Combined, these materials offer advanced adaptability for the unrelenting grind of 24/7 creativity. Hi-vis reflective details complete the upper, adding a new dimension to the shoe’s name and establishing it as a must have in the arsenal of any creative that thrives at night.
All of this is then rounded off with a BOOST midsole and durable rubber outsole, resulting in a silhouette that is elevated for comfort and engineered for nighttime exploration. The Nite Jogger sneaker is capped off by the message “speed of nite” written in Morse code on its outsole and tongue. Offered in a flurry of distinct new colorways, featuring tonal greys, pastel greens, and eye-catching orange hits, the result is a striking expression of the Nite Jogger silhouette’s enduring aesthetic, presented in an exciting new context.
To celebrate the latest Nite Jogger release, adidas Originals dropped a limited-run of collectible Nite Goods items through unexpected giveaways in New York City last week. Members of the public were able to get their hands on copies of a custom Nite Jogger storybook, Go To Bed, Sneakerhead, and its teddy bear counterpart, NiteBear, who offers words of encouragement voiced by the comedian Eric Andre. Aligning with the SS19 Nite Jogger campaign, the rare goods exist to inspire late-night creators to power through and to never stop dedicating every waking minute to their creative pursuits.
The new Nite Jogger colorways will be available in stores globally on April 11, 2019 and at www.adidas.com/nitejogger
. Styles will retail for $130.
