Nike has once again made waves in the sneaker world by jumping on the “Dad Shoe” trend with their successful revival of the Zoom Vomero 5. But they didn’t stop there. The Beaverton brand has taken another step back in time to the Y2K era with their latest release, the Nike V2K Run. This low-top sneaker features a chunky sole unit and elements inspired by Nike’s racing solutions of old, adding to its nostalgic appeal.
Looking eerily similar to the plush mesh base and leather overlays of the Vomero 5s, the Nike V2K Run, formerly known as the Runntek, is dominated by a “Sail” color palette that takes over the upper. Accents in light tan complement the inner tongue, heel, and pull tab, while a rich collection of chocolate brown hues amplify the tread, mid-foot shank, and heel clip. The profile swoosh receives a touch of muted plum, adding a subtle pop of color. And let’s not forget about the vintage cream finish on the Cushlon-infused midsole, completing the retro aesthetic.
For all the sneakerheads out there, the women’s exclusive Nike V2K Run “Sail” is definitely worth checking out. Take a look at the detailed imagery below as we eagerly await more release details.
