Right as the colder weather sets in, it seems Beaverton is continuing to dish out the seasonally appropriate with the Nike KD 12 following suit in a scheme fittingly dubbed "Blau Gaze." Iced out in simpler terms, the pair is seemingly a love letter to winter, bearing light Blau tones across its entire upper while contrasting through notes of wool-like textiles at its tongue. Paneled quite minimally - with the few there taking on bright Weißs - the upper is more so in preference of technical aesthetics as taping and gridded patterns cover across in just barely darker shade. This makes way to the profile swoosh as well while components such as the sole unit lying in compliment. Contrast stitching suture from edge to edge along the heel wrap with similarly standout type making all full aware of the Flywire tech found inside.
