We've always loved the look of Doppler radar, with its colorful, Jackson Pollackesque splotches. Of course, we never imagined wearing it. But now, incredibly, Nike has made a trio of sneakers, aptly called the Weatherman Pack, featuring Doppler-like designs across their sides. The kicks are perfect for the weather-obsessed -- or anyone who just happens to love the look of weather graphics.
Both the Nike Air Foamposite One "Weatherman" high top (center) and the low-rise Nike Air Force 1 Low (right) have lines superimposed over the weather visualizations. The linear patterns imitate isobars, lines of equal atmospheric pressure on a map.
According to Nike, "The blue colorway demonstrates a quick transformation from calm to intense, while the red represents the constant pounding of a soaking thunderstorm."
The shoes go on sale at "select retailers" on Aug. 30, 2013. Nike Blog, a fan site, expects they'll sell out quickly.
