The outcry for Nike Retro releases have been heard loud and clear as we’ve seen a number of classic Nikes releases and be scheduled for upcoming drops. One Retro that will most likely not happen is the Nike Air Pressure, the $190 Nike basketball shoe with an incredibly heavy air-pump console attached the rear ankle of the shoe. The Air Pressure is one of those shoes that were better suited for viewing rather than wearing, and considering the unique plastic-case packaging and space-boot like design, it’s better off as a museum piece rather than a part of your footwear rotation.
For 2010, Nike introduced the Nike Air PR1, a modified version of the Air Pressure but with an Air Jordan III sole, slightly modified upper, and of course, shed of the huge contraption. Overall reception to the shoe was mixed as the PR1 wasn’t a true Retro, but this upcoming House of Hoops-exclusive colorway might change a few minds. Arriving soon at House of Hoops is the Nike Air PR1 in a colorway inspired by the original; a white upper with hints of grey and red attack the upper, and a matching t-shirt with “Contents Under Pressure” will also be available.
