The sneakers have translucent green details, a direct tribute to the neon green color that has become synonymous with the console since its release back in 2001.

Other details include “Xbox Seattle WA 2001” written on the sneaker that highlights the console’s birthplace, along with the original Xbox logo that resides on the sneaker’s tongue.
