The Nike Air Royal Mid isn’t a shoe for the lighthearted. While a few basic colorways have released, Nike Sportswear has treated the Royal like the artsy middle-child, the one that is given permission to paint all over his/her bedroom walls and come to the dinner table with a funny hat. If you can recall all the Royal releases of this year – Macarons Pack, Harris Tweed ‘Vach’ Pack, Wingtip Pack – the shoe definitely appeals to those with a funkier taste in kicks. these two new colorways of the Royal Mid VT feature molded leather uppers with unique color-blocking techniques that doesn’t restrict itself to seams and panels – something you rarely ever see in a classically-designed Nike shoe. Both of these new colorways just hit Nikestore so take another look after the jump and grab a pair for yourself today.
Color: Wolf Grey/Blustery-Cool Grey
