A mash up of the past, the Nike P-6000 CNPT
The new sneaker arriving this spring is the Nike P-6000 CNPT, with some serious colourways of the reimagined retro style. We may not have expected the “dad-trainer” trend to stick around but the style of the 90’s and 00’s has come back around as Nike moves forward with this new runner. With recent releases including the React Element 87, M2K Tekno and Air VaporMax Plus, never underestimate how they can simultainiously give us popular futuristic styles and transport us back to the year 2000 in one breath.
Nike has looked back through it’s archive, the P-6000 CNPT being the emanating hybrid of both the Pegasus 25 and 2006 silhouettes of our past. With no Air Max cushioning in sight, the P-6000 CNPT features a cushioned midsole and waffle outsole tread instead to add traction. It’s horizontal and vertical overlays on a mesh upper provides a heavily textured look with breathability which mirrors the former Terra Humara sneaker which has a softer shaping. This flexible combination however isn’t for the marathon runner but the casual jogger and outside the track, wear them to the office with your Aries Gabardine Tailored Trouser or A-Cold-Wall Rouche Trouser. Like the Pegasus’, the lacing system extends to the midsole for a cushy fit and even the placement of the embroidered swoosh and edition stamps are echoed. The Silver/Blue and White/Black colour ways will be laucnhing on the 16th May, register to purchase through SEVENSTORE LAUNCHES. The shape of the P-6000 is truly emphasised in the White/Blackcolourway, with a strict just-above-half and half line, the white stretching over the toe all the way around the back. For the not so faint hearted and retro enthusiast, the Silver/Blue is your trainer.
