Sportswear giant Nike is preparing for the warmer summer weather with a 90s classic silhouette, the Nike Air Skylon 2 sneakers. This time, the iconic footwear model takes on an updated colorway entitled 'Eggplant.' Similar to its name, the new colorway boasts hues of purple with an infusion of blue as well. The predominant colors of the Air Skylon 2 are white and cream, serving as its base and covering most of the uppers and the midsoles.

The accenting colors are the aforementioned Blue Lagoon and Grand Purple hues, implemented in a gradient process and seen on the simplistic sole construction. The Nike Swoosh is printed on the midsoles in blue and additional branding details are found on the Air logo tongue and midfoot.
