As one of the brand’s most polarizing efforts within its Air-infused archives, the September debut of the Nike Air Max Scorpion has since seen a bountiful number of offerings. Tooled for long walks through concrete jungles and various training regimens, the overtly puffed-up proposition now looks to the construction and hues most widely associated with the brand’s ACG lineup.
Casting the entirety of its Flyknit base in a light cream tincture, the chosen palette comes ready to explore the great outdoors with dark chocolate stitched Swooshes while a strip of “Vachatta” leather consumes both the heel’s pull tabs and stitched-0n tongue branding. Furthering its All Climate Gear roots, a multi-color houndstooth detailing assumes atop the oval laces threaded through bright blue lace loops while accompanied by color-matched miniature Swooshes and a branded carabiner. Resuming the luminous sky-harkened hue across the insoles and both the tip and heel of the tread underfoot, the pink and cream gradient-infused midsole receives an onslaught of golden speckles while the trail-ready sole unit injects a sea of blue within the full-length Max Air unit underneath.
As we await further release details, in the meantime enjoy official imagery of the Nike Air Max Scorpion “Hiking” below.
In other news from the Beaverton brand, the recently returned “Big Bubble” treatment is now cast atop the Nike Air Max 1 ’86 “Light Silver/Anthracite”.
