Nike Killshot SP: A perfect low-key everyday sneaker

When Nike revived the Killshot in 2020, it received a rousing reception from many sneakerheads. Now the brand restored the Killshot, this time using better materials while maintaining its original shape.

The Nike Killshot SP features its predecessor's classic narrow shape covered with breathable mesh and durable suede overlays. The Swoosh kept the deconstructed exposed foam on the tongue, the noticeable retro Swoosh branding, and the vintage tennis shoe outsole construction to complete the 80s look.

Nike Killshot OG vs Nike Killshot SP

The Nike Killshot OG and the SP look practically identical. They both wear mesh on the upper with suede overlays resting on top of a white sole. They only differ in the mesh material used and the colorways. The SP version uses a more refined mesh as compared to the OGs. Also, unlike the OGs covered predominantly with white and color-popped Swoosh, the SP displays this the other way around. The SP's upper is tainted with monochromatic hues added with white Nike Swoosh branding on the side.
