Nike‘s N.354 sub-label is home to many a conceptual model, among them being the Swoosh’s Air Zoom Type — a lifestyle-centered offering that is inherently inspired by the Swoosh’s premium Nike AlphaFly NEXT% runner. Following its unveiling of a fall-friendly iteration with “Pink Blast” accents in early November, the silhouette is being spotlighted once again by way of two neutral-focused renditions dubbed the “Light Orewood Brown/Black” and “Black/Summit White.”
Uppers on the former are composed with a synthetic suede fabric that is primarily hued with a lighter tan complexion. This build is color-blocked with notes of black accents that touch on the exposed heel stitching, the hexagon-filled lateral Swoosh embellishments, the medial-side “N.354” hit and the heel/tongue branding. Double stacked cushioning units support the base layer and deviate with a slightly darker shade. Additionally, the exposed Zoom Air puck that’s visible at the forefoot contrasts the upper due to the nature of its charcoal grey tint.
Its release sibling is one that carries a much darker-toned motif. Save for the translucent Zoom pods and white trimming which is evident across its various branded ornamentations atop the upper, as well as along the forefoot region of the midsoles, this variation sees through to a pitch black finish.
If you’re looking to add these kicks to your rotation, you can find both available now at retailers like Asphalt Gold for €149.00 a pop (approx. $177 USD).
