The black leather jacket is an icon of rugged American style cos it’s the type of garment that can take a beating and often looks even better when it’s weathered. Same deal with this new Nike Air Royal Mid in ‘Faded Black’. These joints offer a more traditional approach to the molded Swoosh look than we’ve seen on some pairs, their only colorblocking a strip of white along the midsole for the purest of all contrasts. These could conceivably become your everyday shoes for a very long time, or just something you break out from time but already looks like they’re well-worn. Either way, the latest Air Royal Mid is available now at select Nike Sportswear dealers including Dr. Jays locations in New York.
