Size and fit

The Nike Grandstand 2 is available in men and women's sizing. With a lace-up fastening system, the shoe is set for a customizable fit. The leather upper also holds the foot securely in place without compromising comfort, impeding premature shoe dislodgement.

Nike Grandstand 2 Style

Taking inspiration from its tennis roots, the Grandstand 2 from Nike presents a sleek and simple design that's perfect for casual wear. The classic tennis silhouette included in the low-top sneakers collection is wrapped with a smooth, perforated leather upper with a touch of Swoosh on the side and graced with a sturdy rubber outsole for a perfect blend of style and function. 

Because of its clean and easy-to-pair configuration, sneaker fans can don the Nike shoe with denim jeans and simple tees for a casual and laid-back look. Women can also opt for leggings or shorts, and it even goes well with short skirts and dresses.

Notable Features

What makes the Nike Grandstand 2 a standout among the rest is its multi-purpose and timeless fashion. All owed to its barely-there, well-ventilated leather upper, the sneaker from Nike creates a plush sensation. The addition of its high-strength, grippy rubber sole also gears the wearer with ultimate surefootedness. Meanwhile, the round toe of the platform evokes a classic yet fashionable appeal to many sneakerheads.

Nike Grandstand 2 History

Nike began its operations back in 1964 and was then called the Blue Ribbon Sports. It was founded by a track and field coach, Bill Bowerman, and his former student, Phil Knight. The first retail outlet of the establishment was opened in 1966, and the name Nike was only introduced during 1972. This was later changed to Nike Inc. in 1978. 

The main target market of the company has always been elite athletes and typical shoe enthusiasts. Having cemented its name in the industry, to this day, Nike remains a go-to brand among a vast number of patrons. Given its wide array of trusty offerings, what makes its shoes exquisite is the fact that these are engineered with top-notch, premier technologies and materials, exhibiting a premium fusion of comfort, style, and function. 

The same goes for the Nike Grandstand 2. The construction of the shoe is heavily inspired by one of the famous tennis tournaments in the world. After several years of refinement, Nike has finally revived one of its original tennis-lifestyle crossover shoes. The first release of the sneaker was way back in the early 90s, still sporting the same clean and minimalist exterior.

Nice to know

  • Flaunting a breathable, leather upper, the Grandstand 2 from Nike keeps the foot feeling cool, dry, and secure without sacrificing the silhouette's stylish cut. 
  • The midsole presents a simple composition that yields just the right amount of support and in-shoe plushness.
  • Just like the first version of the series, the outsole of the Nike kicks heightens stability as it targets ground adherence, regardless of surface texture and conditions.
