Nike has given its Shox R4 model quite the revival this year, offering up the style in its original “Black/Metallic Silver-Max Orange” colorway and even a special-edition collaboration with famed footballer Neymar Jr. Continuing to refresh the silhouette for the summer, the brand has introduced the shoe in new glossy reflective versions that lend a retro aesthetic.

The latest take on the footwear includes two monochromatic releases, dubbed “White Flash” and “Black Glow.” Each style features an upper washed in a tonal black or white base respectively, while a neon green Swoosh adds a bright element to the side panel. More color is threaded throughout the four-column midsole and the heel logo, playing up shades of orange, purple and green that call to mind an old-school game console. Reflective elements on the tongue, eyestay and toe box finish the sneaker off with a glow-in-the-dark effect.

Both editions of the Shox R4 are priced at ¥1,299 CNY (approximately $187 USD), with the “White Flash” colorway available now and the “Black Glow” expected to release on June 11 at Nike China’s webstore.
