Nike Air Assault Low – White – Red – Elephant – Unreleased Sample
Kanye West wanted the Air Jordan III midsole for his Nike Air Yeezy, but the invisible curtain between Jordan Brand and Nike meant no cross-pollination. ‘Ye opted for the remarkably similar Air Assault tooling, a choice that furthered the Assault’s role as a footnote. That might change if Beaverton ever releases colourups like this sample. It’s just red and white, but a elephant-printed mudguard demands your attention. These would be a superb addition to any collection, and are available in US mens size 9 from LacedHeat on eBay.
