To complete the look, the side N logo is dressed in grey with white outlines, laces appear two-tone pink/purple and the eggplant purple mesh heel features reflective details and a bright orange back brace featuring the NB logo and Made in USA. To affirm the collab, « baklava » (the rapper’s nickname and brand name) joins the 990v6 tongue branding. The whole is based on an ENCAP technology midsole in different shades of electric blue and a black outsole with an icy part.
