Summertime is usually an excuse for Nike to make alterations to their classic running sneakers, usually by either slimming them down, adding a Lunarlon outsole or even outfitting the upper with their new Breathe technology. But sometimes, the classics are just what you’re looking for – and if that’s the case then look no further than this casual styling atop the Nike Air Max Light Essential. The pair sees the usual mesh and suede combination work well due to the white base being offset by a medium ash on the side panels and a brown on the lower mudguard and Swoosh. Add in splashes of Gym Red on the lace eyelets along with the tongue and heel stitching and this pair is a formidable pick up.

The latter-day British Knights renaissance brings us to Summer 2014, and a new drop that sees the launch of the retro Control in a fresh batch of colorways. Constructed with the sort of bulky silhouette emblematic of the ’80s and early ’90s, the shoe comes in tonal white and black styles (in Hi and Mid variations, respectively), as well as a multi-colored number also built in Hi and Mid editions.
