Onetime performance tennis shoes that found an unlikely niche as a casual favorite, Nike‘s Killshot line is known for its crisp look and sleek style. Now, it’s back in its most true-to-the-original version yet: the Killshot OG SP. Trading out the Killshot 2‘s leather uppers for mesh and providing a slim, slightly-sloped build, the Killshot OG SP is a return to roots and a nod to a bygone, pre-NikeCourt era of Nike tennis footwear.
Three different styles are set to be available: red, green and navy. All feature a mesh base that’s lightly tinted to match the colour of its signature Swoosh — save for the green, which equips a rich tan tone on its upper — and supple tan suede overlays on toebox and heel alike. Leather heel tabs take on the same colour as the respective Swooshes and also offer a Nike spellout logo. Tongues use an exposed foam build and a Nike Sportswear-style badge, with off-white rubber midsoles arriving in place of the Killshot’s recent gum midsoles to complete each look.
The Nike Killshot OG SP in Gym Red, Gorge Green and Midnight Navy all drop 4 July for the retail price of R1499 each at our CPT, JHB and online store. Online at 7am, JHB and CPT open at 10am.
