"This year has been packed full of sneaker anniversaries. Over at Beaverton, Nike haven’t stopped celebrating key models such as the nike online, the Air Presto, and the Air Max 95. First hitting shelves back in 1995, the super popular Air Max model has turned the big two-five this year, and it looks like Nike have a slew of special celebratory models still to come.Commemorating the silhouette, we recently got a look at a classy lighter-hued ‘Champagne’ iteration, and now – continuing on with the theme – Team Swoosh have just debuted its darker-hued counterpart.
Coming in courtesy of sneaker leaker solebyjc, we can see that they’ve stuck to the usual Dunk formula of a full-leather upper mixed with classic colour-blocking. Toning it all the way down for this iteration, they’ve slapped the base with white leather and added in black overlays to match the Swoosh and outsole. White Black Friday Discount branding lays on the tongue and heel for that final touch.
As with most other newpopmodels.com models to appear with 3M Scotchlite and/or 3M Thinsulate materials, the Nike React-cushioned proposition features a predominantly muted upper. Therefore, the aforementioned blue that appears throughout the midfoot, collar and heel is that much more pronounced. When coupled with the reflective detailing near the tongue, the proposition’s statement-making capacity increases, especially when light is shone onto the pair.
Although created to be a super lightweight high-performance running shoe for long distances, the nike outlet was re-introduced to the market with lifestyle in mind, touting its Zoom cushioning and porous, breathable upper for everyday comfort. Leading the way the massively successful Stussy Spiridon collaborations, fully cementing the shoe’s place among other casual footwear options, and we must say – it looks darn good with this focus. Seen here is a near all-black colorway of the Steven Smith-designed runner, but rather than mesh and synthetic materials building up the exoskeleton, it’s a perforated leather and suede instead.
