Air Flow / New Colorway!

  Here is a new colorway of the vintage Air Flow originally released in 1989.  "Coming off the successful 1982 launch of the Nike Air Force 1, Bruce Kilgore was making his mark as one of brand’s top young designers. Known for his design versatility, Kilgore experimented with patterns, materials and construction that were revolutionary for the era. " -Nike SW 
"Born in 1989, the Air Flow was Kilgore’s statement solution to provide runner’s with what they needed – a breathable shoe combining new cushioning with superior comfort and support. With comfort inspired by a plush Teddy Bear, Kilgore literally used the stuffing for the sole of an early Air Flow prototype. The concept evolved and with an upper reminiscent of Nike’s original marathon shoe, the Nike Sockracer which coincidentally had no outsole, blended with a new outsole featuring flex grooves and responsive cushioning." -Nike SW
