Nike Lucha Libre Collection 2021 Release Date Info

Nike has unveiled the Lucha Libre footwear and apparel collection inspired by the fabled wrestling culture, complete with loud masks, boisterous costumes, and a dose of showmanship.

The footwear blends exotic leathers and rich textiles to create fun detail applications. The collection’s Air Force 1 comes in a metallic leather upper with a removable synthetic mask on the left and right shoe, forming the left and right eye slots. The Blazer Mid has a satiny woven upper, faux snakeskin paneling, and lacing inspired by the back lacing of a wrestling mask. The gold is a take on boots worn by luchadores in the golden era of the 1950s and ’60s. The Air Max 90 comes in a bisected black and white color scheme, a nod to famous Lucha Libre rivalries pitting good against evil, or “Los Técnicos vs. Los Rudos.” The vamp comes in a textured woven material and the mudguard in patent leather.

The apparel silhouettes include two styles of hoodies and a t-shirt, featuring graphics and material treatments borrowed from Lucha Libre culture, including masks and posters.

The designs are created from a serious respect for observation that is at the heart of Nike GEL (Geo Express Lane) products. The folkloric ensemble of masks and costumes forms a true artistic tradition in Mexican culture; in Mexico City, Lucha Libre is considered an intangible cultural symbol, bringing people together.
