The NIKE AIR PRESSURE RETRO sees the first ever return of the outlandish model, with its special box and pump included.
The AIR PRESSURE originally dropped in 1990, and was the brand’s answer to the Reebok Pump which released a year earlier in 1989. The sky-high silhouette is dominated by a mix of white and grey, with pops of red at the ankle and on the tongue branding, as well as a darker shade of grey on the strap and lace eyelets. The mix of white and grey continues on to the sole unit, which is relatively slimline in relation to the rest of the shoe. Obviously, since they were competing with the Pump, NIKE had to take things one step further, so rather than the pump being integrated into the shoe, the AIR PRESSURE came with an external pump that attached to the nozzle on the heel and could be stored in the lid of the impressive, but somewhat bulky, plastic box. There are a fair few pairs of shoes that we have been waiting to see return… and this was one of them.
The NIKE AIR PRESSURE RETRO is scheduled for release on THURSDAY 14 JANUARY and will be available via the RELEASE PAGE, which you can link to below.
