If you had missed the Nike Air Raid retro, this may be your opportunity to grab a pair. The black and flint grey colorway had released on March 29, 2014 but another colorway will hit release today. Originally made for the outdoor baller, Nike has brought back the shoes with the intentions of being able to withstand the tough concrete and asphalt.
As Jordan fans will know, they have a slight resemblance to the Air Jordan 8 with the cross straps that lays across the tongue that can be attached with the Velcro by the ankles. Going with an old school feel, the shoes are simple. The Air Raids will feature its signature “Outdoor Use Only” phrase on the heel. Strangely enough, the shoe’s official colorway claims to be “University Red/White” but we can only spot the red and black. There’s a splash of speckles to overlay on the black midsole. The shoes will contain a black mesh to go along with the red leather.
