Nike is heading back to the ’90s with its forthcoming drop. In the coming weeks, we can expect the return of the Swoosh’s Zoom Alpha model. Hosting a similar shape to the Air Zoom Spiridon, this iteration welcomes a mix of navy and white with a few touches of orange onto its mesh upper. Small orange Swoosh logos are added to each side in addition to the tongue and heel while the midsole sports an etched “AIR” logo blending in white.

There’s no confirmed launch date for the returning Nike Zoom Alpha at the moment but stay tuned with us for additional information as it comes.

In related NSW news, you can check out Cav Empt’s forthcoming release alongside the Swoosh.
