M2K Tekno

Revived as the updated version of the Air Monarch, the Nike M2K Tekno, is the ideal ‘dad’ style shoe with trendy and bold colorways alongside minimally-toned iterations. The shoe famously led to the re-awakening of Kanye West from his Twitter hiatus, who came out to make comparisons between the M2K Tekno and his own dad sneaker, the YEEZY 700. Either way, the M2K Tekno has been a popular option for retro shoe-loving sneakerheads. The drop sees a restock of the first model along with three other colorways.

  • END Launches; S$155, draw closes next Thursday, August 16 at 7am (Singapore time)
