The Nike M2K Tekno "Pure Platinum" is a predominantly white chunky lifestyle sneaker. Drawing inspiration from the Nike Air Monarch, the M2K Tekno utilizes the same familiar layered upper as the Monarch and uses similar materials for its key design elements. The upper features white leather overlays with mini white Swooshes on the lateral panel and on the front of the midsole. A larger white leather Swoosh rests on the midsole. The heel of the M2K Tekno differentiates itself from the Monarch with a bulging light grey heel cup adding to the sneaker's bulky appearance. Completing the look of the sneaker is a white and grey midsole and a traction outsole for stability.
