A Nike Air Raid retro is scheduled for the not-too-distant future, with two distinctly different iterations of the uniquely classic shoe slated to launch: an updated version using new technology, and an OG-styled bringback that faithfully re-creates the original. Today we have a look at the latter.
Sporting the same good looks that made the outdoor hoops model a favorite among sneakerheads and basketball devotees alike — leather construction and inset mesh; durable outdoor-specific outsole; cross-straps wrapping the foot — the shoe will return to retailers in a variety of colorways, including a black/grey pair that’s in the same vein as the OG colorway, albeit with grey a shade or two darker. In addition, the grey/volt and white/gold pairs are outstanding, and of course there’s something about red/black Nike colorways that just works.
Check out detailed shots below and stay tuned for that tech-updated Air Raid; we’ll pass along photos in the coming days. (Edit: Here it is.)
