Making for yet another drop that caters to fans of the ever-popular chunky sole, this two-shot deal by way of NB offers both a light and dark option. If you don’t have a problem keeping your kicks clean, the “Steel/Light Aluminum” is the route to go, opting for a signature grey hue and complimented further with red, green, blue and yellow accents on the standout midsole. The purple iteration — well, in this case the colorway is referred to as “Dark Current” — is a richer version that features “White Peach” accents and a lighter gradient of blue, green and yellow. Both pack in the bootie construction, premium suede upper and ABZORB tech, so you can’t go wrong with either option if performance is what you’re looking for the most.
