Onetime performance tennis shoes that found an unlikely niche as a casual favorite, thanks in large part to the now-bankrupt J.Crew, Nike‘s Killshot line is known for its crisp look and sleek style. Now, it’s back in its most true-to-the-original version yet: the Killshot OG SP. Trading out the Killshot 2‘s leather uppers for mesh and providing a slim, slightly-sloped build, the Killshot OG SP is a return to roots and a nod to a bygone, pre-NikeCourt era of Nike tennis footwear.

Three different styles are set to be available: red, green and navy. All feature a mesh base that’s lightly tinted to match the color of its signature Swoosh — save for the green, which equips a rich tan tone on its upper — and supple tan suede overlays on toebox and heel alike. Leather heel tabs take on the same color as the respective Swooshes and also offer a Nike spellout logo. Tongues use an exposed foam build and a Nike Sportswear-style badge, with off-white rubber midsoles arriving in place of the Killshot’s recent gum midsoles to complete each look.

All three colorways of the NikeLab Killshot OG SP are set to release via retailers like Sneakersnstuff on May 22. The retail price for each is set at $90 USD.

For more old school-inspired styles from the Swoosh, check out Nike SB‘s Zoom Bruin in “White/Team Orange.”
