The “Dark Iris” swaps out the mesh for a smooth nylon build to further its retro Nike Sportswear inspiration. This nylon is dressed in a medium purple shade, while the eponymous iris tone arrives on the suede mudguard and eyestays plus the leather heel clip.
As is par for the course, there’s a wealth of doubled-up detailing to be had as well. Purple and white nylon tongues with unique branding stack under purple and white laces. Quarter panels are covered by a duo of Swooshes, namely a burnt orange leather iteration atop a low-slung screen printed purple variation that drops down onto the midsole. The midsole itself is made mostly of white foam, but also features a slab of sail foam at the heel under its turned-up “lip.” Purple screen printed details under the eyestays, orange leather heel tabs with purple co-branded details and black outsoles round off the look.
