Size and fit

The Nike Zoom 2K sneaker, one of the Swoosh’s recent lifestyle kick offerings, is available in men’s and women’s sizes. The shoe features an inner bootie construction that provides a slip-on functionality and snug fit, while a webbed lacing system offers enhanced stability and support. 

Nike Zoom 2K Style

Designed with a retro running-inspired aesthetic, sportswear giant Nike deliberately decked out the Zoom 2k with modern details that add a touch of futuristic flair making for one unique looking shoe. A rather minimal design, this sneaker took the opposite route by settling for bold details such as multiple branding, a unique lacing system, protruding overlays, exaggerated curves, and color play.

Bolder colorways offer a stylish, more noticeable design compared to monochromatic ones providing an added boost to your everyday wear. However, the neutral ones have the upper hand when it comes to versatility and convenience in mixing and matching. Still, whatever color your heart decides upon this kick’s stylish details are sure to complement and add oomph to your casual ensemble.

Notable Features

The fusion of heritage style and modern comfort is perhaps the Nike Zoom 2K sneaker’s most notable feature. However, the shoe is equipped with an abundance of details ultimately making it an incredible pair that leaving the specificities would be a mistake.

The upper’s main attraction is the rubber wings that wrap from the outsole all the way to the side. Apart from its design contribution the wings also provide enhanced stability. The mix of leather, mesh, rubber, and synthetic leather display rich textures that elevate its overall design. Moreover, other components such as exaggerated heel and branding further cement the early 2000s aesthetic inspiration.

Lastly, Zoom Air cushioning, breathable mesh forefoot, inner sleeve construction, and webbed lacing system all contribute to satisfying modern comfort requirements.

Nike Zoom 2K History

Nike reaches back to its past to bring running’s innovate explosion by reimagining the Nike Zoom shoes. Still filled with the performance DNA of running sneakers, the Nike Zoom 2K offers new aesthetic that bridges performance and style with ease.

The new retro-inspired sneaker was initially introduced in three colorways and Nike eventually released more colorways.
