Nike drops hundreds if not thousands of styles a season, each with their own inspiration. And though one would expect bright, playful colorways throughout Spring/Summer, the brand has decided to do the unexpected, delivering barb wire adorned Air Force 1s and paisley-covered Dunks. This Waffle Trainer II is equally surprising, as its tri-color gradient is not unlike the colors of a heat map.
Arguably appropriate to the season, as the temperature is beginning to rise, the pair’s Swoosh and heel tab feature said coloring atop a plastic-like film. Green is most dominant across the arc of the logo, and the shade progressively turns to a deep red before resetting atop the rear-facing panel. Elsewhere, the construction is far more standard: grey suedes dress the overlays; black builds out the foundation; and off-white is awash over the laces, tongue, and midsole.
