The Nike Air Ralston Mid Lite Goes for a Stylish Formal Look

The Nike Air Ralston Mid Lite sneakers are a real surprise from the sporting company in terms of design and style.

While Nike is well-known for creating sports and casual sneakers, I'm surprised to see the brand go for a bit of a formal aesthetic in these new kicks. Not that you'd rock these with a suit any time soon, but you have to admit they look pretty darn suave. The Nike Air Ralston Mid Lite are mid-tops decked out in complete suede. You'll also notice that the swoosh that normally appears on the side of the upper is non-existent. The sneakers have been stripped down to the bare minimum for a clean look that stands out on its own.

The Nike Air Ralston Mid Lite will be available in limited quantities. Stats for Suave Suede Sports Kicks Trending: Older & Average
