The Nike Free Inneva Woven was a pretty big hit in late 2012. Regardless that it was a scarce Nike Tier Zero release or that it was a $200 + release, it was very much sort after. The shoe which takes 8 hours to make by hand reintroduced Nike’s woven technology, or how some call it, basket weave. With this version they introduced it with a 5.0 Free out-sole and a unique way of lacing up the shoe. The quality of the shoe is one of those times where NSW really laid out a top-notch shoe all around too. So whats next?…
A friend of mine sent me a photo recently that had two sample pairs in it. The photo was rather bad because it was small and blown out. So what I did was take a side profile photograph of my Inneva to put into Photoshop and give you a rough presentation of what to possibly expect this year. Above and below are my translations of the Photo Blue and Team Orange samples. As you can see for both make-ups, only the heel leather area and laces are covered with a color. The two other obvious differences is that the blue pair stays with a black upper, where as the orange one has a grey one. I would also like to point out that the laces are sort of two toned by way of having some white mixed into both. Like hiking boot laces. The other detail I couldn’t make out from the photo, was whether the out-soles are white or have the splatter effect that came with the original.
As of right now, these are just samples and I have no clue if they are releasing. I was told that there may me some sort of red version by way of either Nike’s solar red or infrared. Its something to that extent. There was also another black pair of sorts. Anyway, at least you get to see something before we get some real photos released from Nike or a boutique.
