Year: 2005

White on whites with a gum outsole is a perfect shoe, but this was a curious flip on a tried and tested formula. A gum midsole and white outsole was just strange in the best possible way, and you can thank a mix-up during production for that shift from the norm. That mistake created a shoe that was still simple enough for mass consumption via JD Sports (before Nike stopped any SMUs on "Icon" product at the end of the year) but generated a low-key favorite too. The heel stitch colors were a nice touch too.
