Confirmed this past spring, Sheryl Swoopes' Nike Air Swoopes 2 signature sneaker is making its long-awaited return to retail this year.

Before the newer make-ups arrive this fall, the Swoopes 2 is expected to re-enter the market in two OG colorways. Both pairs previewed here feature white leather uppers, black nubuck overlays and color accents in red and royal blue. The mid-cut silo is famous for it's unique toggled lacing system, Zoom Air cushioning and exaggerated pull-tab.

Swoopes became the first female signature athlete in 1995, with the Swoopes 2 introduced during USA Basketball's golden Olympic run in 1996.

While an official release date hasn't been announced for these two pairs, they're expected to land sometime in Aug. for a rumored retail price of $140.

UPDATE (08/13): The long-awaited retro of the Nike Air Swoopes 2 is finally returning on Friday, Aug. 17 for $140. The "Game Royal" colorway of the WNBA legend's signature model will be releasing via Nike SNKRS and other select retailers.
