The Skylon II holds a special place in retro running fan’s shoe cupboards, as the design incorporates unique features that instantly distinguish it from the hordes of imitators. The instantly eye-catching feature of the well fetished early 90s runner is the gradient design to each lateral side, something that you’re more likely to see in a dodgy takeaway nower days than on a high profile Nike silhouette. The unique hues are the major selling point to this re-release, offering a design that lends itself perfectly to the re-adoption of pale denim and a lighter colour sock. Between the two designs on offer, there’s a colour gradient for every Justin and Britney.
