Nike Air Raid ‘Urban Jungle’
The Nike Air Raid is having a crazy year and if you thought that the Pigalle collaboration was the last time you’d see it then think again. The streetball classic is set to hit the streets in one of its most popular looks ever with the blacktop themed “Urban Jungle” colorway.
This time we see the sneaker decked out in grey leather and black mesh and nubuck for a rather sinister silhouette. Things perk up a bit with the use of a multi-colored kente cloth-like print used on the midsole and tongue tag but those criss crossing midfoot straps bring things right back to ominous again. The rugged basketball sneaker hits all of the necessary points in getting its style across and reads as unbustable as it actually is.
No word on when these are set to return to American retailers but select retailers in Japan have them including mita. Lets hope that these aren’t Asia exclusives, surely Nike will do the right thing.
