Bold hits of yellow are featured on the Swoosh branding found on both the lateral and medial sides along with the “Tn” logo on the back heels. On the design, Matheron states he was inspired by photographs of a courthouse under construction, hence the shoe’s name “Work in Progress.” This branding has also be placed on the tongue tab.
