It’s no surprise that when the Nike NSW Skystepper first showed up people were quick to point out the Yeezy comparisons. Yes, it’s got a strap across the center, a high hitting design, and a similar Swoosh placement. But on the other hand-the materials don’t really have anything in common with that other NSW shoe, the sole kit is an entirely different one, and the colorways definitely don’t do anything to ape that classic. Are the differences enough to let this new model step out of the Kanye shaped shadow? Let us know in the comments, but not before you check the gallery if Nike NSW Skystepper (Releasing next Wednesday at shops like Nohble) images lined up for you after the jump.
