Brand: Nike

Model: Drop-Type LX "Summit White" and AF1-Type "Summit White"

Key Features: The Drop-Type LX deconstructs a classic Nike tennis shoe, stripping it down to the bare essentials. A mixed-material upper sits on a vulcanized sole unit, with N.354 branding along the side. The AF1-Type has similarly deconstructed detailing, with pops of black, pink, and blue standing in contrast to a white upper that has lost its Swoosh from the lateral side.

Release Date: June 28

Price: $75 (Drop-Type LX) and $140 (AF1-Type)

Buy: Nike and select retailers TBC

Editor’s Notes: After announcing three new sneaker categories, Nike is getting ready to drop its first N.354 release, which includes the Drop-Type LX and AF1-Type. Both silhouettes feature a deconstructed design, with the Air Force 1 losing its lateral Swoosh and gaining a heel strap. The Drop-Type LX, meanwhile, is a remixed, stripped-back version of classic Nike tennis shoes.

While we’ve seen deconstructed efforts from the Swoosh before, the Drop-Type LX in particular feels like it could be a hit this summer due to its timeless low-profile shape, with pops of color on the tongue and heel providing eye-catching details on an otherwise no-frills sneaker.

Both styles drop on June 28 through Nike SNKRS and select retailers.
