Nike Court Royale 2 Mid: Keeping it simple and retro

Shoes from the NikeCourt collection have always been known for their products that radiate functionality and fashion-forward styling. The Nike Court Royale 2 Mid is no exception.

While chunky kicks and futuristic, tech-filled shoes abound, Nike decided to keep things straightforward and old-school with the Court Royale 2 Mid. This one gives off the same kind of chill and laid-back 70s kind of energy. You'll evidently see it with its conservative mid-top construction and use of tonal hues. A large Swoosh logo in contrasting color gives it the right amount of pop. 

Must-know Court Royale 2 Mid facts 

In order for you to make a guilt- and regret-free purchase, here are a few more helpful facts that will help you decide if this is the right shoe for you. 

  • Ankle support. Those in need of stability in the ankle area would find this shoe satisfying. Be warned though. Like any mid- or high-top shoe, the added support also mean restricted mobility.
  • Warm interior. While the fabric lining helps improve the shoe's breathability, the synthetic leather upper is expected to feel less airy compared to your regular mesh or full-grain leather sneakers. This makes the Court Royale 2 Mid a nice pair to use for seasons that call for warmer shoes.
  • Acceptable durability. Despite being a low-cost sneaker, you'd find the upper of this shoe to be quite durable. It may not be as hardwearing as kicks made of genuine leather but it definitely is more robust than fabric kicks.
