If there’s one thing to note about Nike, it’s the fact that the brand’s extensive team of designers isn’t afraid to get experimental when it comes to bringing new silhouettes to life. And this year, the women’s lifestyle running category will be beefed up with a plethora of new models, one being this Y2K-inspired Nike Runtekk which has just been unveiled by way of official imagery.

Right away, you can notice the similarities that the upper build has in comparison to the Nike Zoom Vomero +5 — one of the Swoosh’s most popular models in the market right now. Uppers are styled with a breathable mesh and are accompanied by cages that hug the quarter panels as well as webbed overlays that rest on the toe boxes. However, the sole piece is significantly different than the Vomero and allows the silhouette to stand on its own. It’s essentially split into two parts that come separated at the middle by a fin-shaped mold while the heel section is supported by a thicker foam piece. Furthermore, the rear is held in place by its thin cup for extra dimension and support.

Detailed shots of the pair’s “Summit White/Metallic Silver colorway can be viewed above and you can likely see Nike and select retailers launching these in the coming weeks for $110 USD.

In other news, a Nike Dunk Low Next Nature “Floral Tapestry” colorway has been revealed.
