Flower prints, out, in comes the Merlin print. This design which is composed of very apparent geometric patterns was created for silk scarves in the 1970’s. and they are quite similar or at least evocative of wax prints made for African fabrics.
Nike and Liberty have joined forces to reincarnate this wonderful print on some of our favorite sneakers. No Air Max 1 or Roshe though, and I’m sure some will be disappointed. The Merlin pack includes some classic models though, such as the Air Max 90 Ultra, the Nike Zenji and the Nike Tennis Classic Ultra as well as a whole range of different clothing items for your running sessions. It was however the first time that Liberty Fabrics of London worked on the Air Max Thea, Air Rift and Cortez. The print had been in a way as to respect each sneaker’s specifications and design. The full Nike x Liberty Merlin pack is available on the Nike website.
