The Nike Air Raid will make it’s retro debut this weekend, 22 years after it’s original release. Labelled as an outdoor basketball shoe upon its release in 1992, the Air Raid returns in a simple yet powerful black/flint grey colorway. A black tumbled leather upper sits under crossing grey straps that give the shoe a tough look. The white midsole gives the colorway some contrast while a patterned outsole lends character to a show meant to weather the beatings of the playground game.

The Nike Air Raid will drop at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker, and Footlocker.com (starting at 8am EDT) for $ 125. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release.


Back in 1992, Nike hooked the Air Raid up with a celebrity endorser who you might associate with another famous sneaker. Take a look:
