The Nike Air Revolution silhouette gets a makeover in the form of a new colorway for the summer. Here we find the Air Revolution executed with a predominantly white upper, hinted with yellow, black, and grey accents. The most notable highlight is a Wolf Grey and black speckled panel laid over the side of the shoe, adding a nice contrast to the rest of the sneaker. A gold tongue and lace holes also add to the Air Revolution’s bright aesthetic, while coordinated tones along the protective midsole tie the sneaker together.
