Each summer calls for a proper all-white sneaker. Nike delivers just that in the form of the Air Max 2 Light. While they’ve quietly been dropping OG colorways of the sneaker, it was an easy decision to produce the shoe in an all-white rendition. The original sneaker design from 1994 doesn’t look out of place today and fits in with the myriad of mesh dad-sneakers out there.

The sneaker is available now on the Nike store and for more colorways of the sneaker you can check SSENSE.

While the hybrid design may not seem like an obvious pairing, the final result changesup some key elements of the Presto upper including the implementation of a jagged midfoot cage.
