Nike Sportswear has established itself a formidable player in the lifestyle footwear game, pumping out products unlike its performance-driven designs and opting for selections more fitting for high-end fashion while implementing some of its most prized technological findings. The Nike Air Ralston Mid Lite is the perfect example of the marriage between style and function, as it features a design inspired by the classic desert boot and wallabee while keeping comfort in mind (that’s a Nike Free-inspired outsole supporting the upper). Premium raw suede can be found on the upper for that truly vintage yet luxurious appeal, completing a simplified look that isn’t overly basic. You can expect the Nike Air Ralston Mid Lite to hit this August at select Nike Sportswear retailers worldwide in three colorways.
