Nike Air Current “Orchid”
The late ’80s/early ’90s was a very expressive time in sneaker design, but here’s another case where the contemporary colors can make a classic silhouette even more eye-catching. The Nike Air Current comes through with another ‘reversed’ look, this time combining an orchid purple overlay with the black neoprene we’re used to seeing as the top layer. They’ve got a speckled sole just like the University Red and Stadium Green editions we’ve previewed this month, but opt out of the eyelet/branding accent color for a finished look that’s bound to draw comparisons to the Tasmanian devil-inspired Sneaker Freaker x New Balance 998 we saw for the first time yesterday. Let us know which of these golden era runners pulled off the purple + black + speckles combo best in comments after you’ve seen more photos below and stick with Sneaker News for release info on all the 2012 Air Currents.
