English Synopsis
Nike launched NIKE FREE RUN+, the new addition to the NIKE FREE footwear line in late March 2010. Nike Japan tasked us to develop an idea that creates buzz about the shoe’s flexibility and NIKE+ compatibility. The idea was the NIKE MUSIC SHOE. Why not make a real musical instrument utilising the shoe’s unique bending features and create a soundtrack with it? We turned to RHIZOMATIKS to co-produce 8 MUSICSHOES. Breakbeats unit, HIFANA, collaborated in the creation of the instruments and performed their original track at a secret live gig for this film.
