The Nike Gakou Flyknit is a Take-Home Sneaker Customization Kit

With the Nike Gakou Flyknit, sneakerheads can let their creativity run wild.

Each pair of the new Nike Gakou Flyknit comes with stencils so sneakerheads can customize their sneakers at home.

The shoe is available in plain black or white colored Flyknit upper, which forms a blank canvas for further sneaker customization. Each pair of the Gakou Flyknit comes with two rubber stencils: one features the Swoosh logo, while the other features the Nike wordmark.

Other features of the shoe include a suede heel and injected foam sole unit for flexibility.

According to Nike News, the shoe was initially a prototype and its creation was due to an indecision by its Special Projects design team.

Set for release on August 24, you can pick up this DIY shoe from, Nike+ and select retailers. Prices, however, are unavailable at the moment.
