The Air Magma boot is a trail design whose simple lines and traditional suede plus contrasting laces formula has been a hit since its 1988 debut. It’s been a big part of the All Conditions Gear resurrection in recent years and met with a couple new variations last winter, but has been basically silent since those medial-zippered fragment design collabos dropped last December. This seems to be another one of those cases where the silence speaks volumes to what was going on behind the scenes, as today we get our first look at the Nike Air Magma 2012′s updated lines. Their connection to the OG is apparent in the simple lines and rugged sensibility, the latter of which is amplified by a rubberized toe bumper that draws your eye to the entirely new translucent sole setup. Both of these first pairs come in leather ‘workboot’ motifs including corded Red Wing-style laces and brass eyelets, so have a closer look below, let us know if you’d still like to see the classic ‘NIKE’ script above that embossed ankle Swoosh and stick with Sneaker News for word on US availability.
