Nike Night Track Disco Retro
You won’t often hear Nike paired with the names ‘David Hasselhoff’ and ‘Michael Jackson‘ unless you’re talking about the Nike Night Track Disco. This sneaker, created around the turn of the 70′s into the 80′s, was made for disco boogie-ing – a true testament to Nike’s unorthodox ideas even during its earlier years. It featured a shimmering and glittery disco-ball upper with a glossy red swoosh and inner lining, and was made specifically for celebrities and Nike brass – one of the earliest ‘Friends and Family’ PEs to come out of Beaverton. Another interesting iota of trivia is that the Night Track Disco was made in the U.S., before Nike moved its factories overseas. Even some print-ads and photos of MJ and ‘The Hoff’ wearing these slicks dance-floor sneakers were produced, but according to Tenisufki, a retro release in 2012 may occur. Check out the images of the Nike Nike Track Disco and some of these vintage print-ads below and stick with Sneaker News for more updates and info regarding all Nike Retro 2012 releases.
yeah!!!! ive been waiting for these since Micheal passed away. i definitely cop two pair of these!!!
i dont understand how a shoe company that has archives cant retro a shoe with the same shape as the og's cheap bastards
that is a horrid toebox shape, what happened to the pointiness? who is actually old enough to remember these? I'm certainly not old enough, I can only gather what I've seen online
1) molds break, and odds of the new one being exact are minimal 2) the molds aren't kept in some top-tier security fault in the basement at Beaverton. it's the the manufacture factories' responsibility to archive their own shit, and most likely these asian factories have too many shoes (nor can care less) to keep track of everything. thus, not nike's fault 3) progression in phylon mixtures and composition ensure a longer lasting and more durable shoe. whats better- an exact replica of an OG, or having a very slightly off shoe being able to be comfy and last more than a few months?thus these new compositions impede on how midsoles are fabricated. 4) who the eff cares. odds are you weren't even old enough to remember the OG so how can you possibly even care of the nuances. high-end, much more expensive, brands create and move on. you're lucky nike even retros anything for you to even get your hands on shit you;d never be able to cuz you're first jumping on the sneaker bandwagon now, so be happy you get a chance to cop and feel good about your social status
