Original Story (06/13/22): Martine Rose and Nike kicked off their partnership in 2019 with the unveiling of the Martine Rose Air Monarch 4, a disruptive, distorted take on the quintessential dad shoe. The London-based designer now reconnects with the Swoosh for a new sneaker collaboration that interprets a classic in a way that is as equally disruptive.

Unveiled as part of Martine Rose’s Spring 2023 show during London Fashion Week was the Martine Rose x Nike Shox MR4. Models walked down the catwalk in London’s Vauxhall wearing a twist of the Nike Shox R4, the silhouette that introduced Nike Shox technology back in 2000. The shoe originally designed for running is given a high fashion makeover, now equipped with a pointy toe. The new shape combined with the Shox platform on the heel gives the shoe a high heel aesthetic. The Shox MR4 is revealed in an all-white colorway and in black with a red Shox heel.

The Martine Rose x Nike Shox MR4 is expected to release this fall via SNKRS, Martine Rose, and select retailers. Check out the two colorways below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
