Nike Sportswear released the Pre Montreal Racer in a large run of VNTG colorways right around the turn of the year, and although we haven’t seen any others since then, it does indeed appear that this retro run will continue into the latter part of the year. The LIVESTRONG x Nike Pre Montreal Racer pictured above marks the first time that this Lance Armstrong Foundation collabo capsule has done up a pre-Air Max-era classic runner. It’s greyed out with just a hint of yellow stitching on the black Swoosh for a style that echoes the subtle approach on those Vintage drops, and though they don’t carry the VNTG distinction, this pair does also feature a pre-yellowed midsole. It’s fairly subtle on this one and seems perfectly paired with the LIVESTRONG colorway; will you be looking for these when they arrive in Q3? Have a closer look after the jump and check out the auction from dballaholic on eBay.
Would not mind seeing a Livestrong Cortez with black leather and a yellow Swoosh and white sole with a white heel panel and yellow Nike. Dopeman.
