UPDATE: The great thing about fashion's cyclical nature is that classics like the Air Vortex swirl back into stores every now and then. Nike have only just announced the return of the 80s baby, but the shoes have already released. Check retailers like Titolo if you want to take them for spin.
Anyone with a penchant for retro running styles will be pleased to see the return of Nike’s Air Vortex. The mid-80s style has been revived in red, navy and black colourways, each one looking like it was plucked straight from the pages of history. The simple colour blocking features suede, leather and mesh panels, all finished up with reflective detailing. At its time of creation it was at the forefront of technical style, but these days it’s a slick casual option.
The Nike Air Vortex 2017 retro hasn’t been given an exact release date just yet, we’ll keep you posted.
