We’re getting some serious Halloween vibes here.
The Nike Air Kukini is back and more popular than ever. First introduced in the year 2000, the Sean McDowell-designed sneaker has been brought back over two decades later - and sneakerheads just can’t get enough of it. After re-releasing a bevy of OG colorways, an all-new "Black Neon" iteration if the Air Kukini is on the way.
Without beating around the bush, the first thing that you’ll notice about this Air Kukini is the bright neon green TPU cage. This wraps around the neoprene and nubuck upper, eventually extending towards the back of the sneaker and around the speckled midsole underfoot. Elsewhere, small Swooshes are embroidered on the tongues, while the heel boasts an extra chunky Air bubble that’s painted in a complementary all-green hue.
Set to release in November 2022 in men’s sizes for $135, the Nike Air Kukini Black Neon will be available at Nike and select online and in-store retailers.
