Father's Day Nike Air Monarch IV...
Look at Nike finally capitalizing on its popular dad shoe.
Years before the dad shoe trend, the Air Monarch IV was already known to everyone as the official dad shoe. I don't understand why it took Nike so long to create more colorways and special versions like this pair.
If you keep up with Yolan on IG, you know that I bought my stepdad a pair of Monarchs for his birthday. I've been buying him shoes for years and I figured it was time to finally bless him with the official dad shoe.
At the time I copped him the White/Black/Red colorway because it's one the best to date. But I can't front on the White/Cool Grey/Green colorway - that color combo is too fresh.
Father's Day is this Sunday, June 17 and if this pair drops in time, I will get my pops a pair. Nike has been off with the timing of a few releases, so let's see if this Monarch drops before Sunday.
According to Mita Sneakers, this is the "Camp Vibes" Air Monarach IV for Father's Day. From this angle we can see a chenille Swoosh/tongue and patches. The Cargo Khaki colorway sits on a gum sole.
This shoe is nice and I don't think any older dad would complain if gifted these for Father's Day. But you know your dad better than anyone else. Also, we know some people are going to cop a personal pair.
Nike has not announced a release date yet, so stay tuned and look for a Nike.com drop soon.
How do you feel about this special Monarch? Are you going to get a pair for your dad or yourself? Let's discuss in the comments section.
UPDATE: This shoe just dropped on Nike.com.
