Commissioned by Nike78 (Eliza posted about the project earlier this month) London-based THIS IS studio has created these rather fetching knitted trainers. They just sent us more images so we thought we’d post them up…

“The Nike78 project asked us to challenge the function of a pair on Nikes,” explains Barney Beech of THIS IS.  “In the world cup spirit we’ve created these trainers for the discerning sofa athlete: hand knitted with a Cashmere/Merino mix. The comfiest way to watch the game!”
