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.

Stüssy — Pure Platinum
One of the more underrated Stüssy takes on the Spridon Cage 2 is Pure Platinum. We're not sure why. This has everything we want in one shoe: silver accents offer a bold finish while black base layers tone everything down.
While the Spiridon Cage 2 probably falls under the lifestyle category nowadays, it was originally designed as a performance runner. The Track Red palette turns its attention back to the athletic roots of the silhouette.
Stüssy - Fossil
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.
Stüssy - Kukini
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.
Stüssy — Black
The Spiridon Cage 2's silhouette has a lot going on, so toning things down with this super-clean black colorway can be seriously effective.
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.
The power of University Blue truly knows no bounds. Originating in the world of basketball footwear as an homage to Jordan's alma mater UNC, the light-blue hue has grown to become a go-to for Nike as a whole.
Tonal detailing to the leather overlays gives the Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 Newsprint texture despite its quiet, two-tone palette. Timeless and clean, this pair is a staple.
Perforated Pistachio leather forms the backdrop for a patchwork of materials to the upper. Suede and mesh battle for space but a highlighter yellow Air unit steals the show.
Some Nike hues always get the blood pumping and Varsity Royal is one of them. This iconic, deep-blue color makes the perfect chromatic anchor for a colorway, and it's on top form in combination with silver here.
Released towards the end of 2020, this pair dropped in honor of one of London's go-to sneaker locations. Size? Carnaby Street is immortalized in subtle detailing like the Carnaby Street-inspired embroidery to the heel.
