Nike Air More Money LX History

Daddy shoes continue to dominate the sneaker world these days, and the Swoosh brand plays on with the drop of the chunky-soled Nike Air More Money LX women’s kick. This pumped-up stunner is the luxe version of the Nike Air More Money that was launched at the start of 2018.

Both fashion-forward iterations are famous for their removable shrouded flaps that serve as ghillie lacing setups. What sets the Air More Money LX apart from its predecessor is the monochromatic presentation of the “Air Money” graphic on top of the flap as opposed to the colored and defined inscription on the Nike Air More Money’s series of designs.

These stylish, thick-soled silhouettes are crossbreeds of the 1990s hardwood profiles, namely the Nike Air More Uptempo and Nike Air Money. The Nike Air More Uptempo is easily identified for its giant “AIR” text patches on the sides, and like the other Air Uptempo releases, this too had the Air-Sole unit in the midsole. Though it was not the official shoe of NBA legend Scottie Pippen, he was seen a couple of times sporting this kick. 

If the league’s small forward player popularized the Air More Uptempo, the mid-top Nike Air Money was made known by elite shooting guards, namely Reggie Miller, Ray Allen, and Eddie Jones. Such ball shoe had the bold “NIKE AIR” text embroidered across the removable shroud which made it a head turner for nearly twenty years.

Nike Air More Money LX Style

Dad sneakers linger on mainstream fashion in spite of their seemingly misshapen forms. If you’re in a hunt for this type of thick-soled, robust-appearing kick to add to your sneaker cycle, the mid-top Nike W Air More Money LX might strike your fancy. Whether you choose between the Summit White/Oil Grey/Rainforest/Summit White and the Black/Summit White/Metallic Pewter/Black colorways, you can merge it with any slim-fitting pants, from cotton, denim, to knit, wool, and leather. Its combined premium leather, suede, and textile makeup also complements long teddy coats, shearling jackets, or leather suits.

Fit & Sizing

The Nike Air More Money LX is relatively true to size that’s available in women’s sizes from 5 to 12 US. Men shoppers are not restricted from purchasing this shoe. They merely need to go 1.5 sizes higher than their standard size to get the appropriate fit. The lace-up ghillie arrangement that’s attached to the shroud offers a customized fit. Inside, the feet are treated to a comfortable nylon-lined interior and cushioned footbed.

Notable Features

The selling point of the Nike Air More Money LX is its most recognizable shroud, which is a vital component of its ghillie lacing system. The marbled leather detailing that complements the premium-made suede flap elevates the look of this sneaker. The Nike-registered Air sole enhances its style and grants effective shock absorption.

Additional Info

  • Each pair of Air More Money LX kick comes with two sets of shrouds. One set vertically displays the “Air Money” text embroidery while the other pair doesn’t have any lettering on the cover.
  • A pull tab is located on the heel
  • A dollar symbol is embroidered at the back of the shoe.
  • Crack leather adds style to the shoe.
  • Swoosh branding appears on the rear section of the midsole and top of the shroud.
  • Rubber outsole grants multi-surface traction.
