The Nike Genicco is available in both men and women’s sizing. This running-inspired sneaker features a low-top construction with a mesh upper that permits flexible and comfortable foot movement. Reinforcements on the forefoot, sides, and heel give extra support. The fit is secure and adjustable with a traditional lace closure.

The Genicco from the Oregon-based lifestyle shoe brand exudes a retro-inspired look that will make old-school sneaker fans want to cop. 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.

The Nike Genicco’s upper is made of mesh, which allows breathability around the foot. Suede overlays are strategically placed throughout the shoe as reinforcements and add structure to it. The collar and tongue are padded for comfort and cushioning. Lastly, the soles feature medial wedge for pronation.

The Nike Genicco shoe is named after a former professional runner named Guido Genicco. 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 Nike lifestyle category.
