Nike are showing love to one of their OG Air icons with a three-strong pack of retro-styled Air Icarus Extras. The Icarus comes from an era when sneaker nomenclature was a little cheekier. Nike’s Air division were producing shoes like the Air Burst and Air Revaderchi – and, in a nod to how well they were faring, Nike had the moxie to introduce the Air Icarus.
These three make-ups hark back to that time, coming in muted tones that were popular in the late 80s and early 90s. Air branding features prominently on the heels and tongues, and touches of colour pop on the outsole. If you want to rock retro chic without the crumbling soles, the Icarus is the ideal feather to add to your cap.
This Nike Air Icarus Extra pack is available on February 18 from Nike online.
