Nike Night Track (Studio 54) Vintage Sneakers – Circa 1978

Before Nike enamored audiences worldwide with technologies incorporating encapsulated Air and forefoot support pillars, the brand rock-chalked the nation with some of that ol’ disco flavor. Yeah, that’s right—Nike—Phil Knight, Tinker, Will Perdue, Cynthia Cooper, and everyone else that might’ve mattered. In 1978, at the apex of discoing, the brand released the lucid Night Track. Aimed at New York City’s uber-exclusive “Jet Set” crowd that frequented club Studio 54, the shoe was distinguished by glitter…and well, more glitter!

Toned up in a brazen silver/red color scheme, the Track was characterized by a nylon upper and glitter-laden Fornica outsole that provided grip for any type of dance nicety. The shoe’s middle panel is engulfed by the signature check, which in turn is plastered with glitter. It appears that the people who sported the ‘Track weren’t about letting their, “Dance speak for themselves.” As righteously herb-esque as the Night Track is, few wearable pairs exist today. (Most succumbed to the daily wear-and-tear brough upon by Moonwalking.) What this means is that if you come across a pair, expect to pay a bunch! Images via ebay and Sneakerset.
