According to @zSneakerheadz, the style is dubbed “South Coast”, which is a term that refers to the southern Pacific coast of California. The pair is expected to hit shelves this fall and over the holiday season to celebrate the model’s 10th anniversary.
Light Blue and Black make their way across the upper of the shoe while Neon Green accents appear on the Swoosh branding, tongue and heel crest. Bold pops of pink along with floral graphics appear on the shoe’s insole.
