Nike’s Lahar Low ‘Sport Spice’ is the perfect chunky sneaker for hiking
Nike’s gorpcore reign unfolds into the fall / winter season, as they prepare to release a new “Sport Spice” edition of the recently retro Lahar Low.
While the Lahar Low features the low silhouette and suede finish of a sneaker, it still offers the durability and performance details of a rugged outdoor shoe. The new ‘Sport Spice’ color scheme showcases the shoe’s crisp retro roots, with a khaki and burgundy suede upper stacked on speckled stone soles. The material is tailored for a proper ride – sturdy metal eyelets, wide eyelets, studded tread – while the small side tabs and ankle pulls stand out in royal purple.
Return – The Lahar Low is a modernized hybrid of Nike’s 1989 Lahar Escape, which was a fully functional high-top hiking shoe. The low-top tribute first fell in January, but Nike stepped up the drops and color palette in the months that followed, from tonal black and khaki to “Grain” blush and burgundy hues. deep. The shoe has generated a unique and authentic hype since its revival: Stocks sell out relatively quickly, but it’s easy to find a pair on the resale market for under $ 200.
All Terrain – Gorp has been climbing the ranks between streetwear and luxury clothing for some time now, but all-terrain trainers are quickly catching up. Nike recently gave streetwear classics an off-road treatment, like the weather-resistant Air Jordan 1 Acclimate, while off-road shoe makers like Salomon have been adapting gorpcore fans for years.
Brain Dead released a full climbing line with The North Face last summer, while Palace just announced their own version of Cannondale’s Bad Boy bike. The hottest drop streetwear looks more and more likely to hit the road anytime, even if that means cruising SoHo on a busy Saturday.
Serious things – The “Sport Spice” Lahar Low does not yet have an official release date, but will likely arrive in retailers for the fall / winter season. Expect to pay $ 130 for this model, the price of every Lahar drop so far.
