How to style the Nike Vandalised

Notable features of the shoe

Displaying a new twist on the classic 1984 Nike Vandal silhouette, the women’s Nike Vandalised sneaker features the “rearranged” elements on its design.

Its asymmetrical new look delivers quite a bold and unique look for the silhouette while keeping its original Nike basketball appeal.

History of the Vandalised from Nike

One year before the Nike Vandal was birthed, the Swoosh brand introduced its very own, and now very popular,  Air Sole Innovation and featured it on its highly sought-after silhouettes, Nike Air Force 1 sneakers. Another remarkable feature that the brand introduced in that same year and on that same silhouette was the heel strap closure system on the top of the shoe in which quickly became a staple in the urban culture.

The following year, in 1984, the Nike Vandal Supreme was launched, featuring the same innovative features from the AF1 shoe. It showcases the same heel strap and midsole unit but it delivers a more aesthetic appeal in comparison to its predecessor. Being born in the middle of the rise of the sneaker fandom, the Vandal most likely just stayed in the shadows of the Nike Air Force 1 High, the Nike Dunk High, and the Nike Legend.

But the main features of the Nike Vandal that appealed most to the people are its canvas and nylon upper that is more lightweight than the other’s components. Its original silver colorway is also another of its appealing features as it kind of portrays a futuristic appearance.

The Nike Vandal is not a stranger to iterations as well. Throughout the decades, it has witnessed a few renditions of its design. In 2019, the Nike brand introduced the women-exclusive Nike Vandalised which features a distinctive “deconstructive reinterpretation” of its main predecessor’s original design.
