Hints of white also get invited in to fill in the hand painted-esque Swooshes on the sides, laces and the Helvetica font embellishments.
Next in line is the “Pink Glow” variation which is easily the most flamboyant of the bunch. Knitted uppers split between purple lateral walls and pink medials, both of which are furnished with Nike checks that are dialed to its nominal hue. Black and volt accents are also present, the former of which drops onto the interior lining, upper branding and treading while the latter splashes onto the zip ties and the exposed Zoom bag.
The final iteration of the assemblage is the “White/Solar Red” variation. Base layers are dominated by a crisp white, and get offset with bursts of “Solar Red” that poke out through the shoe strings, Swooshes and various points on the mid-foot. Midsoles somewhat contrast with creamy finishes and come marked with stark black “AIR” hits on the lateral heels. Track-ready soles are also submerged in more “Solar Red” paint to round out its look.
Early reports have these slated to drop on July 23, but SNKRS has not yet confirmed this.
