This summer, Nike presents a quickstrike city series of Free Run+2 sneakers, with five colorways representing New York City, London, Tokyo (seen above,) Shanghai and Rio de Janeiro.
Embracing the urban metropolis’ found in these locations, on each of the five colorways, a speckled grey Phylite midsole talks to the surfaces of a city offering a point-of-difference from white soles easily dirtied during daily activity. Executed in the local aesthetic of each city, these aren’t the usual running shoe shades. Deep Burgundy represents China, Pine Green captures Rio de Janeiro’s grit and flair, Anthracite’s starkness is quintessentially New York, Black channels Tokyo street style, while London’s version of the Free Run+ 2 arrives in a gentlemanly Khaki.
