“White/Red/Blue” is the more colorful of the duo, adding dashes of red and blue atop its white and cream base for a look that’s half high fashion and half Blue Ribbon Sports. On the other hand, “Black/White” keeps things stark with a yin and yang of light and dark shades. Both are constructed from a mixture of mesh and suede. From an embellishment standpoint, details are doubled up from the top down: there’s two tongues (one mesh, one nylon), two Swooshes (one printed, one made of leather), two sets of laces and two midsole pieces.
Above the double-stacked midsole sits a “lip” that rises into the heel, and almost gives the effect of an open mouth from the side angle. This sharply-pointed piece may be a reference to the ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%‘s midsole — hence the shoe’s nom de guerre. Finishing off the look are doubled-up branded hits on the heel, further painted detailing on the midfoot, two co-branded tongue tags and classic outsoles.
