Nike’s been absolutely killing it this year. Between the Mayfly Wovens, Roshe Runs, Inneva Wovens and now the Air Solstice, they really don’t give you much chance to break-in a pair before pulling the trigger on the next.
This timeless sneaker, whose influence derives from the Nike Tailwind, Vortex and Safari, features an all leather-and-suede upper with an incredibly successful and tasteful use of both textures and patterns throughout. The perforated toe, tongue and swoosh for example are all lined with a light-reflective sub-layer, while the predominantly grey silhouette is tied together with a contrasting neon orange ankle collar and a rich, dark tan inner, all of which is placed atop of a air-cushioned sole unit.
This extremely limited Tier Zero release comes in both grey and black. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a pair, as most stockists, if not all, have unfortunately sold out by now.
