The Nike Air Flytop is yet another new retro, bringing flavor from the past and presenting it with a new kick (couldn’t help the pun). Anything with velcro straps used to be synonymous with strictly athletic grit, and yet we’ve seen so many featured on high-end lifestyle sneakers. The key? The design of the overall look. Take these for example. Both very clean simple colorways, applied with premium leather uppers. The use of leather for the inside lining adds to that lux look and feel. Many may associate first-class with expendability, and carelessness for waste. But contrary to how these designs convey superiority, Nike is able to create these as a Considered design, making them quite eco-friendly. Then again, going green is more of a concern lately for the yuppies as well. Cop both the white and black pair at Caliroots.
