Nike recently unveiled its bulky M2K Tekno sneaker – which takes elements of both the Monarch 1 and IV silhouettes – to much acclaim. The on-trend dad shoe was a sell-out success and there’s still a high demand amongst those who weren’t able to cop. Following the release of the sneaker in “Phantom,” “Black Volt” and pink colorways, it was also set to drop in a nostalgic blue and orange hue.
This iteration debuted at John Elliott’s Fall/Winter 2018 presentation and as such, has unofficially been dubbed the “John Elliott.” It features a white leather upper that’s contrasted by bold panels of blue and orange for a real ’90s appeal. Black details on the tongue, heel counter and mini Swoosh branding on the side add an edge to the look, which is complemented by a retro and sporty exaggerated midsole.
This M2K Tekno was initially slated to drop at retailers sometime in August, however you can snag a pair now at Offspring’s web store for $121 USD. Be fast, however, these normcore beauts won’t be around for long. For a closer look at the silhouette, check out our unboxing of the same sneaker in pink.
