Drawing inspiration from modern day jet fighters, the Interceptor elevates the Nike Air bubble to new altitudes. The ‘canards’ located on the forefoot section of the midsole promote stability ensuring maximum performance even on uneven terrain. Showcasing an orange insole, mimicking the lining of flight jackets often worn by military pilots, that sits inside the vast Air Bubble heel unit.

Currently at Foster + Partners as an Associate and Senior model maker within the modelshop, Oliver Knights is a multi disciplinary designer and maker looking to make the transition from architecture into footwear design.
