Following up on a story we did about a week ago, today we have more detailed pictures of the Nike Air Raid in Black/White-Flint Grey. Here’s a little history about the retro sneaker (or as the story was told): Phil Knight (co-founder and chairman of Nike) left a note for Mark Parker (who is the third Chief Executive Officer of Nike) asking him to come up with an outdoor basketball shoe. That note then ended up at the desk of Tinker Hatfield and the rest is history. With “For Outdoor Use Only” branded at the heel of the sneaker, the upper and tongue is covered in Black leather with Flint Grey on the upper toe and crisscrossing straps. Finishing off the look is the White midsole.
Let us know what you think, do you plan on picking up the Nike Air Raid in Black/White-Flint Grey next month when they release at select Nike retailers such as FootLocker or Crooked Tongues?
