3. We’ve got them back in-store and online now
That’s right, they’re back and ready to be scooped up right now and they’re better than ever. Coming in a couple of tonal iterations for spring/summer, the low-top model features full Climacool breathable mesh construction, paired with TPU overlays at the toe giving the sneaker some added support. To top it all off they’ve got a perforated sockliner that dishes out some enhanced comfort, in addition to outsole tooling for 360-degree breathability. Those feet aren’t going to get much fresher than in a pair of these.
