Thankfully, the Nike GTS provides a perfect middle ground. Priced the same as the Tanjun, the GTS is an all-canvas sneaker from the ’90s that in years past has been revamped by Nike SB to create the SB GTS and even collaborated on by Supreme, enhancing its cool factor. Now, it’s back in its original black and white colorway.
A popular choice of skaters in the ’90s due to its low price point and durable style, the GTS offers a black canvas upper, embellished by white-outlined Swooshes and metallic silver eyelets. Two extra eyelets under the wearer’s arch on the medial side enhance breathability and a white Nike Sportswear graphic is embroidered on the tongue. A final Swoosh appears on the leather heel tab, while down below white midsoles with a black foxing stripe round off the look.
The Nike GTS in black and white will return to Nike SNKRS on August 26. It’s priced at an entirely palatable $65 USD.
