Nike Sportswear has earned mixed reviews for the pre-yellowed look it usually applies to Vintage series releases, but Sneaker News readers were particularly vocal in discussing our first look at the red pair from this pack yesterday. It seems many would be thrilled with the Nike Air Max Light VNTG in classic colors with mesh and muted suede tones, but the oxidized rear midsole might be the kind of thing that’ll send some to order a fresh bottle of Sea Glow. But whether you’re for or against the yellowed foam look, it’s hard to argue against getting this oft-overlooked classic with its original Swoosh and shape; will you be making arrangements to grab one or both when this Quickstrike two-pack touches down on Friday, December 2nd at stores like Stickabush?

THIS ENTIRE VNTG LINE SHOULD BE AN URBAN OUTFITTERS EXCLUSIVE!! POSER SNEAKERS FOR POSER SNEAKERHEADS....YEAH, LIKE I REALLY THINK YOU'VE HAD THESE SINCE '89...PUHLEASE!!!
wonder if Sea Glow can remove the cat piss off...? If I see a YouTube tutorial showing its possible....then its a must cop!
I think the yellow ruins the shoe. I get what they are trying to do with it, but why only half the sole? it's not very well put off. It turns me away from a really clean looking shoe.
wtf is up with that yellow midsole... if ur gonna try to make something look vintage, using bright yellow isn't going to work. and it looks funny cuz only one part of the sole is yellow, while the front part is perfectly white. Either take out the yellow completely, or use it throughout the whole midsole but with a milder yellow
you do realize that the front part is eva and the back part is polyurethane...... eva wont yellow or crack pu will
cause that's not how they were originally designed...hence VNTG. Trust me I feel the same way about the artificial yellowing of the sole, but I love airmax lights and these cw's are sick! Not copping though...
