As Nike simply puts it, the ZVEZDOCHKA is different, and to many, quite bizarre and futuristic (try pronouncing that name correctly before googling it).

First unveiled in 2004, the unique space-inspired silhouette designed by renowned industrial designer, Marc Newson, is introduced once again this season in a variety of colorways to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

Named after a Russian space dog launched into orbit aboard Sputnik 10 in 1961, the ZVEZDOCHKA exhibits a swiss cheese-like appearance with its perforated composition. The unique construction includes four interchangeable parts; the outer cage, the interlocking outsole, the innersleeve and the insole – all of which can be worn in multiple combinations as seen in the gallery above.

Overall a sustainable, functional and one-of-a-kind design, the Nike ZVEZDOCHKA will be re-released in its original five colorways at select Nike retailers starting December 29th.
