The Nike Air Footscape is getting a serious revamp with a rugged reconstruction that leaves it in prime outdoors condition. The updated silhouette will be arriving in two trail-ready colorways of “Green” and “Mushroom.”
Nike’s reworked Air Footscape Mid Utility edition retains the original’s asymmetrical lacing system but updates the drawstring mechanism for easier slip-on access. The lacing system also migrates to the heel of the shoe, allowing the ankle collar to adjust to the wearer’s preference and to prevent entry of any water. Another notable addition is the signature waffle outsole, taken from other Nike iterations, used to enhance traction and add a more robust edge for outdoor excursions. Lastly, a reinforced toe panel means that the upper is protected while maintaining a stylish look.
The “Green” colorway sees a mixed brown, grey, and green upper that rests atop a white midsole and black outsole. The “Mushroom” version’s upper arrives in a more understated pale pink tone and sits on an off-white sole unit. Both colorways are now available for $175 USD at select Nike retailers and on the Swoosh’s web store.
