When it was first introduced in 2000, Nike Shox quickly became the hottest cushioning technology on the market for seemingly every activity. Vince Carter soared over 7’2 French center Frederic Weis for a legendary dunk in the 2000 Olympic Games with Shox on his feet. Runners around the world turned to the bouncy tech, as it gave off a look of extreme heel energy return. And everyone remembers the legendary “Boing” series of commercials — shorts that helped the Shox bounce higher than ever before. The sneaker world’s love affair with bulky, loud silhouettes in 2018 serves as a perfect re-entry point for the once futuristic tech, and the classic white/silver/red Shox R4s have returned in both men’s and women’s sizes. Available from a limited number of specialty retailers, the R4s are a true-to-the-original release, with the blend of white and silver leather left untouched, while the bold red Shox heel columns and large midfoot Swoosh also make a triumphant return. If you’re looking to take it back to the future with your footwear this fall, these special Shox are available now at the retailers listed below.
