The Neymar Jr.-approved Nike Shox TL has recently surfaced with a “Racer Blue” gradient reminiscent of the original Air Max Plus.

Textile bases are clad in a rich blue hue that darkens from forefoot to heel. “Black” TPU cages, while not wavy on the Shox TL, equally adds both structure and attitude to the silhouette, as they do to the aforementioned Air Max model. Elsewhere, “Vapor Green” profile Swooshes – just as “White” mesh throats – interrupt the pair’s predominantly two-tone color scheme; the hue also takes over branding on the tongue, spine, and outsole. Piston-cushioning underfoot indulges in a bolder shade of blue, akin to the Air Max Plus’ debut whale tail-shaped midfoot shank.

Enjoy official images of this Shox TL here below. And if you’re interested in a pair, find them at select retailers right now for $170 USD.
