2018’s ultimate dad shoe will finally be available in dad-friendly sizes, as the “Phantom” colorway of Nike’s M2K Tekno is set to release in a men’s version after originally dropping in women’s sizes May 5th. A modernized take on the legendary Nike Monarch, the shoe features an upper with off-white overlays and very light olive underlays, plus retro tooling borrowed directly from the aforementioned Monarch. Tonal branding is abundant on the shoe’s upper, with a vertical logo hit on the tongue, as well as three swooshes—one large and two small—appearing on the lateral side of the midfoot and the bottom of the throat. A bright orange plastic heel piece adds a bright pop of color to the otherwise toned-down sneaker, and the look is completed with a classic Monarch midsole and two-tone black/grey outsole. The chunky men’s sneaker is confirmed to release this month on Nike.com, so keep it locked here for info and updates and enjoy a full set of official images below.
