Editor’s Notes: The Nike Shox Enigma is an all-new, Shox-equipped model that brings Nike’s early ’00s cushioning technology firmly into the present. Its retro-influenced upper goes well with the brutalist Shox cushioning underfoot and is part of a larger Shox relaunch this year by the Swoosh. Along with the R4, BB4 and TL, the Enigma is the fourth Shox style to see a wider release in 2019.

Shox was originally imagined by legendary designer Bruce Kilgore (who also birthed the Air Force 1) in the early to mid ’80s. The technology lay dormant for almost 20 years before it made its debut in the early ’00s. Unfortunately, it was quickly phased out when Nike Free was developed and released. Originally a performance running technology, Shox has now come back as a purely lifestyle model.

Look for both launch colorways of the Nike Shox Enigma to hit retailers today.
