When designing these kicks, the Swoosh team tossed out the traditional smooth leather material that you’d normally see on the uppers and instead brought in a quilted canvas fabric. The lateral and the medial sides are each treated with a trio of colors including a baby blue, dusted pink and a lighter gray, all of which alternate amongst its various textured panels. Bold red accents stand out overtly across the Swooshes, heel Nike branding and the laces, the latter of which loops through a buckle attachment near the collars instead of the usual eyelets.

Expect to see these drop sometime in February 2022 via Nike and other retailers.
Elsewhere in the footwear space, Nike’s Waffle One “Pro Green/Rust Oxide” has been revealed.
