Distilling the race-ready ethos of Nike Running‘s Air Zoom Alphafly NEXT% into a lifestyle package, Nike N. 354‘s Air Zoom Type is a conceptual casual silhouette — one that’s now been introduced in “College Grey.” Using a traditional color scheme to bring an alternate twist of flair to its unique shape, the “College Grey” is at once classic and cutting edge.

Stripped-back uppers are built from a grey suede-like material, and add a duo of Swooshes: dotted on the lateral side, small and hand-scrawled on the medial side. Further embellishment arrives via perforated toeboxes, a tongue badge that states “this shoe is based on a Zoom Air prototype built at Nike WHQ” (an abbreviation of World Headquarters), branded heel tabs and small brown leather heel patches.

On the lower half, double-stacked speckled grey midsoles are left intentionally askew, with the bottom half jutting out below the top to drive home the layered look. These two pieces are seperated by a plastic plate meant to represent the carbon fiber present in the aforementioned Alphafly and other silhouettes like the ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%. The main dash of vibrance — and signature detail — is handled by a duo of “Hyper Jade” pucks in the forefoot, and black outsoles complete the look.

The Nike N. 354 Air Zoom Type is set to release via Nike SNKRS Japan come July 1, and will likely touch down in the US during the following weeks. The MSRP is set at $150 USD.
