Deep cut with Nike Pocket Knife DM

The Pocket Knife DM was launched in 2017 as a modern version of a classic ACG footwear. The brand unveiled it with a few modern upgrades while keeping its remarkable retro details intact. Its looks easily lodged on many hearts and mind as it bears several unique elements:

Remarkable features:

  • It has eye-catching deep outsole grooves that serve as its flex points. This detail provides flexibility, comfort, and style.
  • Similar to the Air Presto, its minimalist neoprene or mesh upper provides not only versatility but also boosts the ventilation.
  • Its easy cinching mechanism and the stretchable collar is suitable for wearers with an on-the-go lifestyle.

Nike Pocket Knife DM vs Nikelab Pocket Knife DM

Nikelab, Nike's high-end streetwear fashion line, launched its variation of the Pocket Knife DM. Both models did not abandon the deep grooves on the outsole, and they upgraded the locking mechanism with a drawstring system. While the Pocket Knife DM is made with neoprene or retro-looking mesh upper, the Nikelab version uses a smooth, stretchable, and more refined variation of mesh with a textured leather overlay to create a plushier look and feel.
