Often confused with the Air Royalty for its similar design and even more similar name, the Nike Air Royal Mid is an ’80s basketball-inspired lifestyle sneaker that seems to handle ‘concepts’ rather well. We’ve seen molded colorways like the Macarons Pack and other VT releases, we’ve seen some with unique colorblocking that doesn’t exactly follow the shoe’s natural lines, and now here’s a pair with wingtip-like brogue embellishments. And with an all-black leather upper, these would look the part of a dress shoe, except for the red sockliner that gives these a little hint of attitude. Check out more images and grab these from Nike Sportswear retailers including Caliroots.
