Nike‘s classic tennis shoe from the early ’90s continues to pick up steam with the introduction of new colorways. A go-to sneaker for those looking for a shoe that is both simple and clean, the Grandstand II features premium leather panels that are detailed with three perforations on the lateral and media sides. Branding can be seen just below the eyestay and at the heel; with both the NIKE Swoosh logo and “NIKE” name embroidered in blue.
Royal blue also makes its way on the detailed tongue tab, the inside lining, and on the bottom of the outsole. Unlike past retro models where the Grandstand II featured a gum-rubber outsole to accompany the midsole, this particular colorway sees blue trim that wraps around an off white vintage midsole — further hinting at the shoe’s past.
