Nike recently began to experiment with retros of lesser-known early-90s runners. We saw the likes of the Air Icarus and its successor, the Air Icarus Extra, return in 2016 and 2017 respectively. Now the Swoosh have brought back another gem: the Air Span II.
The remake remains as faithful as possible to the sneaker's origins. OG pedants will nitpick variations in materials and shape, but for a retro we never expected, we aren't complaining!
The model makes its return in two colourways: one clad in silky burgundy mesh that channels the quintessential colour-blocking of the original 1989 Air Span and another that takes a more contemporary approach with an all-black mesh and leather upper.
The Nike Air Span II retro is available right nor from select stockists, including Up There Store.
