Balvin’s shoes offer a fresh take on the classic 1986 design. It features a sky blue colorway with cloud graphics along the heel, collar and insole, and inflated panels on the upper ankle, with premium materials and air cushioning designed to keep your feet comfortable.

Rainbow stitching adds subtle pops of color to the dreamy shoe, which is accented with Balvin’s signature smiley on the back and a glow-in-the-dark logo.

Although Balvin is known for his unique style, there is a deeper meaning to the design aesthetic.

“Everything I do has to tell a story,” he explained in an interview with Complex. “I talked to Nike about how I wanted to reflect my mental health journey in a creative way. We discussed how to overcome going through dark moments to find the light. That’s where we came up with the concept for this sneaker. I wanted , that it should reflect how you jump towards the light and your dreams and lift yourself up to get through the dark situations in life.”
