Nike M2K Tekno
Release Date: October, 2018
Color: Pure Platinum/Black-Sail-White
Style Code: AV4789-004
Nike’s M2K Tekno silhouette – a modernized take on the infamous Monarch – has propelled itself toward the top of 2018’s chunky footwear food chain. Its complexly layered upper allows for expansive color blocking capabilities, and the usage of multiple textiles offers up a slight premium vibe. This fall, the Swoosh will be adding a Pure Platinum number to the mix, with a little bit of help from two popular Beaverton colors, Cone and Volt. While the majority of this selection comes done up in stark white, the presence of these electric hues offers up a more vibrant aesthetic for those who opt to make statements with their footwear choices.
A modernised take on the legendary Nike Monarch, the M2K Tekno Pure Platinum features a clean white upper with red and black detailing throughout for a beautifully contrasted look.
Tonal branding is abundant on the shoe’s upper, with a vertical logo hit on the tongue, as well as three Swooshes appearing on the lateral side of the midfoot and the bottom of the throat. A glossy ‘Volt’ plastic heel piece adds an interesting detail, and the look is completed with a classic Monarch midsole.
