With the first edition’s initial colorways hitting retail just a few months ago, Sneaker News took a recent Nike Free Powerlines+ 2 preview as a sign of things to come with an outside chance that the first pair’s product cycle might be shortened. A more traditional annual approach seemed more likely upon the unveiling of the newest ‘Wool’ Powerlines, but now we know to expect them concurrently as the Free Powerlines+ II gets a January 2013 ship date. This first Dark Obsidian style has a simple upper that shows off the Free 3.0 sole’s potential for speckling, featuring an earthy splatter that connects with the Dynamic Flywire cables that’ll make such a big impact on this updated design. Let us know which Free Powerlines+ silo is best after you’ve seen more below and stick with Sneaker News for US release info.

As anyone who’s had an experience grasping a live wire can attest, powerlines have the kind of energy that gets you moving. And moving onto a sequel with all the rapidity you’d expect from an electrifying barefoot runner, the Nike Free Powerlines 2 makes its first appearance less than six months after the original first hit store shelves. Gone is the first edition’s ribbon zig-zag and in its place, a Dynamic Flywire fit system with supreme breathability courtesy of ovals somewhere between the LunarGlide 4′s Engineered Mesh and the Nike Sportswear version’s slatted leather build. Oh and did we mention the first colorway is full of subtle pleasures, like a speckled Free 3.0 sole, earthy Flywire cables and a mint kiss on the heel strap? You’ll see for yourself in more photos below, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for the Powerlines 2 release date.
