Match its sporty look with a pair of track pants, a sweatshirt, and a cap for an athleisure-inspired look. Or go with an updated normcore ensemble by dressing it in cropped trousers and a plain neoprene top.

Color-wise, you could let the shoe's colors be the focal point by wearing a monochromatic outfit, or you could also complement it by choosing a top or accessory that has the same hue as your kick.

Notable features

The most striking feature of the Nike Air Scream LWP that will probably get your attention first is its mix of contrasting colors. This mix of vibrant colors creates a stylish intermixture that adds character and appeal to the shoe. A specific color is used for each design element and material: a single color is used for the mesh underlay while another for the leather overlay and so on.

Another thing that makes this model stand out is the combination of a cleatie upper with a unique lacing system that uses rope-like shoelaces that goes through the Nylon loops and finished off with a chunky sole.

History of the Air Scream LWP

The Nike Air Scream LWP was originally released in 1995 as a cross-trainer. It was a part of Nike's LWP (short for lightweight performance) line from the mid-90s. The collection housed different performance shoes and was the world's introduction to Tensile Air technology, which would later be renamed to "Zoom Air."

The LWP line experienced success from the basketball courts to the gyms and all the way to the tennis courts. Some of the models from the 90's collection that's been re-released already are the Nike Air Go LWP in 2011 and the Air Zoom LWP in 2016. 2018 came, and it's the Nike Air Scream LWP's turn. The sneaker has not been available since its original release in 1995, and with the resurgence of the trends from the 90s, there's no better timing the brand has chosen than 2018.
