THE MONARCH STEPS INTO THE FUTURE. The Nike M2K Tekno Essential draws inspiration from the Monarch franchise and pushes it into today with a futuristic heel clip and plush tongue. Its layered upper mimics the design of the original Monarch, while the chunky outsole draws on the beloved Monarch IV. A leather and textile upper draws inspiration from the Nike Air Monarch. A foam midsole provides lightweight cushioning.
The rubber outsole and traction pattern nod to the Nike Air Monarch IV. The Nike Air Monarch IV outsole is distorted by the addition of a TPU heel clip for a futuristic look. The padded foam tongue has a chunky look reminiscent of '90s styles.
