With the World Cup right around the corner Nike is in full football mode, dropping everything from amazing new World Cup jerseys to international-inspired kicks like the “International Flags Pack” featuring a Zoom Spiridon, an Air Max 90, and an Air Max 95. It’s not just heritage silhouettes that are getting special tourney-inspired makeups though: Nike’s new Shox Gravity silhouette has also received a patriotic US colorway. Although the USMNT may not have qualified for the World Cup, these Shox qualify for a spot in any running shoe lover’s sneaker rotation with a gold mesh upper and a large blue heel cage featuring a bold red swoosh and white stars, nodding to the Stars & Stripes. The shoe’s cinch lacing system arrives in black, while a white midsole and re-engineered white Shox cushioning unit with blue detailing provides a little extra patriotic contrast. Fan of these new-age Shox? They’re available on Nike.com now and other retailers such as ShopHNY.
