The latest Nike Air Royal Mid has a decidedly blue collar look. This Quickstrike pair borrows a premium look from Red Wing Boots, extending the rich mahogany down from the smooth leather to an otherwise white midsole. You gotta have the corded laces and brass eyelets if you really wanna get the workboot aesthetic, and those are a check-check. There’s also an extra pair of leather laces if you want to push them toward something dressier. Either way, these buttery soft boot-like sneakers are available at select Nike Sportswear retailers including the 21 Mercer St. flagship.
