With a nice medium grey canvas sitting on top of a white midsole and a matching grey outsole these kix are so fresh and oh so clean. A splash of color is added via aster pink Nike branding on the heel and on the tongue, however the Nike Swoosh is in white. A final design touch comes by way of a grey plaid lining. These are available now through select retailers.
The color way name alone makes these things sound pretty regal with them being premium black, midnight fog and aster pink. But if thats not classy enough for you the gingham paneling and midnight fog textured leather just may do the trick. These are pretty awesome in general and they should be available shortly.
Mating an autoclaved outsole to the classic Flight High ball sneaker proved to be a successful feat for Nike this past fall. For spring the sneaker returns in a perforated gray leather make up with electric green highlights.
I personally have titled these the Bob Marleys because its the kix that i think Bob would wear if he rocked nikes.
This pair green/black/gold/red pair is set to be a Quickstrike release and it packs a few punches. Like the shimmery safari print swoosh or the black perforated panel it sits on. The meat of the design is the green suede mudguards and gold polka dot lining. In keeping things funky fresh red can be found on the outsole and tongue tagging. These are set to release at select accounts this April.
Blazers are some of Nike’s most comfortable shoes ever and when you add the style factor you have a recipe for constant rotation. This time around the shoes are done in green or khaki ripstop nylon. The green is accented with navy on the laces and outsole, while the khaki finds itself with golden laces and a gum outsole.
