A 90′s classic returns this weekend when the Nike Air Bakin hits store shelves. Dubbed “Blackout,” this high top retro features a black-on-black upper and outsole accompanied by a black patent leather overlay around the base of the shoe. The only deviation from black is a hint of silver on the logos. The Air Max unit in the heel gives this shoe the performance you need with the look you want. Cop a pair this Saturday, July 19th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker or Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EDT) for $ 150.
When the Nike Air Bakin’ made its debut, it was actually in a fiery red and black that was associated to Tim Hardaway’s time playing for the Miami Heat. Before he landed in South Beach, however, Hardaway had previously played a full seven seasons elsewhere. The Game Royal and Varsity Maize colorway on this shoe point towards his tenure with the Golden State Warriors. Equipped with a white leather upper contrasted by a Varsity Maize base, Game Royal works the leather mudguard and textile tongue and collar.
Available online only Saturday.
For only the second time since 1997, the Nike Air Bakin’ will hit stores. This Saturday, the retro basketball shoe, formerly endorsed by NBA Stars Mitch Richmond and Tim Hardaway, will drop in the original black/metallic silver-varisty red-orange blaze colorway. The Bakin’ (as in “shakin’ and bakin’” and not the breakfast food) features a black upper which is mostly covered by a red vented overlay. Orange blaze laces pop against the red and have also led some to nickname the shoe “Ketchup & Mustard.” Nike branding appears on the shoe’s ankle, tongue, midsole, and heel and an Air Max bubble is featured in the heel, as well.
The 90′s classic, Nike Air Bakin’, will drop this Saturday, April 5th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EDT) for $ 150. The release will also be available in kids sizes at Foot Locker and Kids Foot Locker and online. Check the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release.
Cruising into the second quarter of 2014, we’ve surely seen some heat thus far. To continue the streak, the Nike Air Bakin’ has been brought back from the days when Tim Hardaway was the speedy and shifty guard crossing everyone up in South Beach. This Nike Basketball classic features a varsity red upper with black resting on the tongue, lining, mudguard, and outsole. Check out the pictures above to see the clean and classic retro sneaker in all of its glory.
