After its first debut in July, Nike‘s Moon Racer sneaker returns with two new colorways of “Sail/Solar Red” and “Black/Racer Blue.” This retro model fuses the past and present with an upper inspired by Nike’s 1972 Moon Shoe and a sole unit drawing from the Vapor Street Flyknit midsole.
The Moon Racer QS features a premium mix of nylon, leather and suede at the upper, emblazoned with an oversized Swoosh and anchored by a curved Vapor Street Flyknit midsole made of React foam cushioning. The “Black/Racer Blue” colorway resembles a dark, night sky with an all-black upper, a white-speckled black midsole and a “Racer Blue” stripe. The “Sail/Solar Red” version opts for a retro feel with an off-white upper, a navy blue leather Swoosh, a natural tan suede heel accent, and a bright “Solar Red” stripe at the sole.
The Nike Moon Racer QS in “Black/Racer Blue” and “Sail/Solar Red” will both release on November 1 at Nike’s web store and select retailers.
For a silhouette that’s more mainstream, the adidas UltraBOOST XENO will be returning in all-white and all-black.
