Hugely popular in Asia, the Footscape was first launched in 1996. Created by Toren Orzeck, it originally modelled on direct casts from hundreds of different athletes, resulting in a revolutionary fit that followed the natural curves of the human foot.
Popular amongst Japanese collectors, mainly thanks to endorsement by Tokyo’s godfather of streetwear Hiroshi Fujiwara, the Footscape is Famously credited to footwear engineer Toren Orzeck, the creator of Air Moc and Foamposite technology. Developed in Nike’s esteemed sports research lab, this trainer was born from the idea of creating a footform shoe that was built around the shape of the foot, the development of the shoes involved taking direct casts from hundreds of different athletes.
The original 1996 model consisted of suede and mesh materials and a plastic heel cup was added to give the shoe extra strength to the upper around the rear. The lightweight Phylon midsole (also later used in the Mayfly and Presto) was designed for comfort. More than 20 years later from its original launch, several versions have been released in a wide range of colourways incorporated with instalments of Nike technology such this season's latest Air Woven releases.
