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 and the Nike Air Zoom Spiridon Cage 2 is looking stronger than ever.

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