The Nike Air Monarch IV gets a distorted remix as London-based designer, Martine Rose reimagines Nike's popular dad's shoe by giving the silhouette a chunkier look.
The Martine Rose x Nike Air Monarch IV deformed uppers are built by using a size 18 upper and fitting it onto a size 9 last. The result is a distorted look that is evident from the lateral and medial sides. Rose's Air Monarch IV is also built with a series of molds that were topped with the stretched synthetic leather.

'We wanted some of the forms to spill over the base and we wanted the heel on the outfit to be further out than the sole…things we were initially told couldn’t be done,' said Rose. 'But everyone kept on pushing and we ended up developing these new shapes and ideas.'
'When we started, we never just followed the rules, really because our access was blocked. For one reason or another we had to find different ways to show.' Rose said.

The Martine Rose x Nike Air Monarch IV will be releasing in three colorways - Medium Soft Pink, Triple Black and the OG Monarch White/Midnight Navy colorway.
