Nike Genicco History
The Nike Genicco shoe is named after a former professional runner named Guido Gennico. Guido has been working with Nike for 26 years now. He shortly joined the company after his phenomenal win at the Rome Marathon back in 1989. He is currently working as the company’s International Product Director.
With Guido’s successful stint as a marathoner in the 80s, Nike aptly designed the Genicco by getting inspiration from running shoes from the 80s. The Nike Genicco is included in the company’s Sportswear line under the lifestyle category.

It is available in various colorways that could add a stylish accent to your look and elevate your ensemble. The shoe’s low-top silhouette makes pairing with multiple casual outfits easy. Opt to dress it in chinos and polo shirt for a laidback but sleek look or the ladies can pair it with a dress for the ultimate summer look.
Fit & Sizing

The collar and tongue are padded for comfort and cushioning. Lastly, the soles feature medial wedge for pronation.
