Boing all over again

Any 90s kid (me included) would vividly remember how cool was the idea of having spring-like columns at the heel area. While the Shox was more associated with basketball sneakers (remember Vince Carter’s death-defying dunk?), one of the first Shox models was this running-centric one called R4.

Fast forward to 2019, Nike is bringing the Shox line back, and the R4 is coming back with the OG black/blue colorway. The retro model stays faithful to the original: black leather for the uppers, along with blue accents on the toe, Swoosh, tongue, sock liner, and Shox columns.

If that’s not enough, the Shox R4 is also dropping in the white/red/silver colorway—another OG color that is more familiar to veteran sneakerheads.

The Shox R4 is expected to drop soon for $140(~Php 7.3k).
