The story of the Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 is a story of redemption, and we all love those. Originally released in 2003, the Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 was intended for the Japanese market.

Designed by Steven Smith, who also designed your adidas YEEZYs, Reebok Instapump Furys, and a number of other icons, it’s no surprise that the silhouette never really went away. In fact, a range of revival colorways and a handful of Stüssy collaborations in 2020 put the Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 back in prime position.

From coveted laceless Stüssy collaborations to the classic Track Red iteration, here are 11 pairs of the Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 that deserve a spot in your warm-weather rotation.

Dropping in 2020 and arguably Stüssy's best-known Spiridon collaboration, this Fossil colorway boasts wild versatility thanks to its one-size-fits-all color palette. Heavy canvas meets mesh in the neutral upper contrasted by a black Swoosh.

Sure, the Fossil colorway wins in terms of styling, but there's no missing the Kukini. Taking the cage structure to the next level, this pair eschews lacing for a slip-on sock enforced by the webbed cage which wraps around the heel, too.

Volt is a lot to take in, there's no denying it. Barely Volt, though, is a different game altogether. Toned down enough to be more palatable without losing its attention-grabbing appeal, this pair is begging for a summer-rotation spot.
