After teasing a Nike React Vapor Street Flyknit last month, Alyx designer and recent Swoosh collaborator Matthew M. Williams is showing off what he’s calling his first Nike sneaker.

The design appeared for the first time at Paris Fashion Week in colors including the triple-black variation shared by Williams. With a rugged, boot-like profile, the shoe is affixed with straps and an exaggerated Vibram sole. Elsewhere, the medial side’s leather collar and zipper are reminiscent of Acronym’s Air Presto collabs.

According to Highsnobiety, this sneaker is known as the S19-Nike-MMW, and it will also come in a snakeskin-adorned white colorway. Release details are to be determined.

UPDATE (05/29): Detailed images of Matthew M. Williams’ upcoming Nike collaboration have surfaced in “Black” and “Light Bone” colorways. The Free TR 3 SP features an elastic ankle collar almost identical to a Nike crew sock. Translucent overlays add some durability to the upper, which sits atop a flexible Free midsole. The highlight of the Alyx creative director’s design is its removable Vibram outsole. Branding can be seen in the form of a Swoosh on the lateral ankle, larger Swoosh stamped on the medial side, and co-branded leather insoles. A release date and pricing still have yet to be revealed.
