For Virgil Abloh, this summer is quite festive because he succeeded in making major headlines in the fashion and footwear sectors. This is especially evident when he cooperates with Nike. After showcasing the Air Zoom Tempo NEXT% series and matching outfits for the Tokyo Olympics, the popular designer is preparing to launch his amazing Nike Dunk Low LTHR OW 04 of 50 Beige series in August this year. Now, the color schemes of 04 and 06 have been shown through detailed images. Except for the 01 and 50 pairs of shoes, most shoes have similar upper structures. The smooth leather base layer is coordinated with the quarter, toe box and collar mixed white finish, while the Swooshes and cover are dyed light gray.

Laser etching is a detailed decoration method. Nike has used it on classic shoe models such as Air Force 1, Cortez and Air Jordan 1 High Zoom CMFT To My First Coach, but the latest sneaker using laser etching technology is Air Max 90. In February of this year, a color scheme inspired by natural wood made its debut. Now, due to the rich mahogany color scheme, laser etching will appear on the groundbreaking Air Max for the second time. The appearance of this Air Max 90 looks like a sneaker with carpentry art. It is characterized by a mahogany leather one-piece upper, covered with rotating laser etching patterns from toe to heel. Even key details such as the Swoosh, heel badge, and glasses are laser etched, subtly replacing the layered appearance familiar to AM in the 90s. The high-end style continues to the neckline area of the shoe, and the leather tongue is thicker than usual, branded with laser Nike sportswear. The collar lining and insole are made of Burgundy leather as well. At the bottom, a white midsole with burgundy Air Max cushioning device and a translucent berry red outsole complete the style.
Every December, Air Jordan Shoes will release a special Air Jordan 11, in 2021 will release the classic Air Jordan 11 “Cool Grey”. It debuted in 2001, and the last retro was in 2010. “Cool Gray” has always enjoyed a status as one of the most popular non-og Air Jordan 11 color schemes. This second retro is designed to provide accuracy to the original 2001 version. Reappear. The upper adopts the iconic “cool gray” matte process, and is styled by the iconic patent leather fender and toe box of Air Jordan 11, and is decorated with “medium gray”. The gray mixture of these two shades is offset by the thick white cord and the white Jumpman logo on the side of the neckline. The heel part is also “medium gray” and Michael Jordan’s No. 23 logo is added, while the fabric Air Jordan label is affixed to the neck as usual. Next is the lower part of the shoe. The white Zoom air-filled midsole and the ice blue outsole are matched together to complete the entire shape. Although this “cool gray” has been more than ten years since its last release, but during this period, its shape has been maintained alive, such as the “cool gray” of the Air Jordan 11 Low, and even the golf-like Air Jordan 11 Low G’s “Cool Gray”. However, neither of these two films have the high prestige or high profits of their similar movies, which makes the return of the original “Cool Gray” apparently popular.
