Few shoes earn legend status at first blush. Yet the Killshot, a Nike staple that was first introduced in the 1970s, sends ripples of excitement through the industry every time a new iteration hits the shelves. Such is the case with the Killshot Off-Noir, a timely release for fall that’s perfect for balancing the season’s rich color palette. The primarily all-black version of the traditional tennis sneaker is awash in premium suede and flexible mesh. The materials are right on point, lending the old-school kick a preppy-meets-contemporary vibe while the refreshed cupsole lends even greater support.
The sharp white Swoosh along the side cements the shoe’s status, but it’s ultimately sheer wearability and endurance that make it so reliable. As much an athlete’s essential as the everyman’s shoe, the Nike Killshot Off-Noir is destined to be a favorite throughout the season and well beyond.
