The sneaker turned boot releases should be no surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention over here at Sneaker News, but we’ll admit that the choice of the Nike Sky Force ’88 Mid sorta comes out of left field. We’ll take it though, as this OG member of the Force family wears the look well, repping the metal eyelets and d-ring lacing on the top end. Beyond that the wool treatment paired with the rich dark suede gives them a sturdy feel, something we haven’t seen before on the Nike Sky Force ’88 Mid. We’ve got full pics of both shoes from the upcoming ‘Hiker Pack’, so have a look at those after the jump. And remember that UK’s End Clothing has them up now for preorder.

Not sure what Nike's retro departments fascination with this shoe is. All variations they have released so far have been a flop. With the corny "vintage" treatment these have been sitting on shelves and heavily discounted. With that said, these are definitely the best of all the '88s I've seen...
