One Of Nike’s Top Running Shoes Got A Streetwear Makeover From Off-White

The Air Zoom Tempo NEXT% is one of Nike’s best-performing running shoes thanks to its innovative combination of ZoomX Foam and Zoom Air cushioning. And while it’s a standout performer, no one would ever accuse the shoe of being a fashion icon. But that’s about to change thanks to designer Virgil Abloh and his streetwear brand Off-White.

Nike enlisted Off-White to transform the Zoom Tempo NEXT% into a street-ready silhouette, and the brand answered the call. This latest collaboration between the athletic gear powerhouse and the haute couture darling features a number of unique style cues that morph the shoe from a runner’s tool to a fashion-forward statement piece. The outsole is now bright green spiked rubber, which may not be great for running on pavement but will certainly turn heads. Also added is Abloh’s signature zip-tie on the laces in bright green, along with a myriad of text callouts all over the shoe. Some of them, like “AIR” and “SHOELACES,” simply call out different aspects of the shoe, while detailed production specs stamped on the shoe’s medial side give more of an industrial feel. The Nike Air Zoom Tempo NEXT% x Off-White Sneakers will launch on July 23 and are priced at $260.
