The OG Spiridon silhouette is stepping out of its shadow making a renowned return with the NikeLab Summer Pack stacking up three fresh new seasonally inspired colourways against the white mesh uppers.
The Zoom Spiridon has always been in the running for being one of the best, lightweight running sneakers since its original release in 1997 with its original OG silver, red and black colourway. Since then the sneaker model of the Ultra has had many modifications perfecting the key features such as the Zoom Air cushioning support system.
The previous NikeLab collaboration launched successfully late last year with a collaboration with Roundel which was inspired by the 90’s garage rave scene with bold alphabetised printed uppers commended with transparent monofilament mesh covers and daring iridescent branding, a fashion statement to say the least.
The OG Zoom Spiridon are ready to bring the summer breeze to your feet with their refreshed look for the warm weather months. Executing the Zoom Air cushioning unit for low key response and a durable wear with maximum comfort. A slick upper created from breathable crisp white mesh and scaled synthetic overlays which blend to radiate a sporty edge. A rippled carved lightweight midsole adds an artistic touch. Oversized swoosh branding to add the Spiridon signature style.
The three colourways all execute a refreshing colour pallet. The Light Ash communicates a raw contemporary style easily matched with any summer outfit with bold black branding for creative detail. The Turbo green add a burst of cool freshness complimented with silver highlights, perfect to pair this years holiday tan. The Light Midnight colourway take the crown as my favourites, I think the Midnight Blue pairs effortlessly with the white and silver which highlights the sneaker silhouette wonderfully. Although this colourway is part of the summer pack I feel it would be an ideal all year round sneaker which essences that retro sport cutting edge factor. This colourway in particular portrays visual similarities to the Roundel collaboration so if you missed out on copping a pair from that release these are the perfect alternative.
