Being the most-coveted sneaker silhouette from the early 2000s, the Nike Air Kukini continues to mix old and new components. Recently, the shoe model appeared in a “Pixel” theme reminiscent of past gaming-inspired releases from Nike. Web like overs spanning the entirety of the upper deliver a semi-translucent finish, while the breathable mesh base is designed with LED light-like hues and patterns. The Nike text at the toe box and sock-liners are shown in a pixelated aesthetic that further plays into the shoe’s theme. The sole units underfoot opt for a plain color combination.
