Irak x Nike Destroyer Jacket
Posted on February 27, 2012 by 10percent
Continuing on with their destroyer series, Nike teams up with New York graffiti crew, IRAK, to construct this little beast.
Nike’s Destroyer jackets, a few of which we’ve covered previously with their Arsenal and Precinct 5 collabs, have now lent their material to the likes of the notorious IRAK crew. The Earsnot founded identity was formed with the main intent and ambitions to epitomise the rawest meanings of vandalism through shoplifting and base graffiti in order to exult the lifestyle. I must admit, I’m slightly surprised that they’ve gone in the direction of a Nike collaboration.
Although surprised, I’m not against the dabbling as it’s a… nice looking piece of outerwear? No, in all honesty, I’m not much of a fan. There’s too much shit going on, and while it has some cool little features (such as the Sace shout out, R.I.P) it’s just too fucking loud. I’m unsure if this Ben Solomon designed jacket will be released to the public or in limited numbers or what have you but I’m sure a lot of you will suss out ways to get it.
