The Metallic Gold accents, prominently featured on the Swooshes, heel tab, lace dubraes, and midfoot, encapsulate the spirit of the Chinese New Year. Morant’s signature “TMT” logo, rendered in a striking Blue, is prominently displayed on the lateral heel beneath the ripstop section. This Blue hue also graces the logo on the tongue tag. From a performance standpoint, the sneaker is equipped with a White and Blue Air Zoom-cushioned midsole, complemented by a Blue rubber outsole, ensuring both style and functionality.
