Earlier this month we gave you a glimpse at the Nike Air Max Rise in the black/white-varsity royal color way. Here is a look at the black/white-varsity red and white/black-varsity red versions. Brandon Roy of the Portland Trail Blazers has been wearing these for home and away games, repping the team’s “Young Guns” nickname thanks to the heel logo. As opposed to the suede upper of previous versions we’ve seen, these Air Max Rise’s feature leather uppers, with a patent leather ankle strap and multi-colored red and black laces. The swoosh can be found on the side panel as well as a black and red carbon fiber heel, visible air unit and red gradient strip running along the midsole. Look for both pairs to hit select retailers such as FootLocker this month.
