Original story (6/22/20): Marking a significant leap forward in their experimentation with Zoom Air, Nike is doubling up on their airbags with the new Double Stacked silhouette.

Set to release on July 2nd, the Nike Zoom Double Stacked marks the first release of a Nike shoe that incorporates two Zoom Air bags on top of one another. This concept isn’t new, however; we’ve seen leaks and teases of both a Matthew M. Williams shoe and an upcoming Nike ISPA offering that appear to make use of the similar exposed cushioning technology.

The shoe appears to ride a thin line between performance runner and a wildly futuristic lifestyle model. It feature an offset lacing system in line with the brand’s more performance-focused offerings but is otherwise marked by relatively minimal detailing. The Zoom Double Stacked also features a new minimal iteration of the Swoosh, though, running from the medial ankle side to the forefoot but seemingly incomplete on the bottom of the logo. Finally, the upper is rounded out by a leather heel cup and a pull tab on the heel.

The midsole and outsole, on the other hand, are anything but understated. The stacked airbags take center stage here, and the shoe even features a third Zoom pod under the forefoot. The design also appears to be encapsulated by a pointed foam, marking yet another nod to Nike’s mainline racing shoes.

The Nike Zoom Double Stacked debuts in a “Barely Volt” colorway on Thursday, June 2nd at 9AM CT via Nike SNKRS.
