Though pairs #2-#49 from “The 50” feature a regimented white and gray color scheme, each supplies a different combo of materials and uniquely colored embellishments. On pair #34, leather is used for a base material while shaggy suede appears on the overlays. The signature overlaid cord lacing system is presented in yellow, while the exposed foam tongue is detailed with sporty blue. On the lateral heel, the pair’s place in the collection is denoted by a marbled orange and yellow badge.
Apart from these unique details, familiar Virgil Abloh details that date back to the very beginning of his collaboration with Nike are present. There’s a blue zip tie attached to the laces, Helvetica hits on the medial quarter and laces, an off-center tag on the tongue and a small orange tag towards the rear of the lateral Swoosh. Sail midsoles and gray outsoles round off the look.
Early access invites for “The 50” were already sent out on Nike SNKRS, but pairs are available at aftermarket retailers like GOAT now and it’s not out of the question that a restock will occur this fall.
