Nike have taken things back to basics with their ‘SO’ sole, which stands for Stitched Outsole. This is a traditional method of bonding the shoe to it’s base using minimal solvents. This makes for a super simple finish, especially effective with the range of bright colours the Royal’s crepe soles are available in. Like concrete and freshly cut grass, we’re loving the juxtaposition of cool grey and lush green in this pair.
