The 1991 silhouette receives an eye-catching makeover, which boasts uppers injected with waste material held in place by transparent shields. Repurposed felt is highlighted with blended grey and black strands, while outlined brand logos hit the medials, mudguards, heels, and rears in contrasting vibrant hues.
Additional graphics and exposed stitching decorate the pair throughout, alongside illustrative tags hanging from the lacing systems. Recognizable split tongues complete the upper half, while teal heel guards sit atop white midsoles and tinted carved outsoles.
