The Nike Air Max 1 has been widely celebrated for being the first-ever Nike sneaker with visible Air. Another shoe model that doesn’t get nearly the same amount of props is the Nike Air Revolution, which is credited for being the first Nike Basketball shoe to feature the window of cushion; coincidentally, the first Air Max television ads in ’87 featured the Beatles smash hit song called – you guessed it – “Revolution”. This game-changing sneaker in the timeline of Nike hoops paved the way for other historic models like the Air Jordan III and IV as well as the Air Flight ’89 and Air Ascension High, so why can’t the Revolution get any love? This Summer, you’ll get a chance to relive that era of Nike Basketball as a slew of new colorways are slated for release, so peep what’s soon to come below and let us know if you’ve got appreciation for this iconic model.

These are the REAL classics, I remember back in 03 when  I was in 8th grade I had the Blk/Wht colorway. A lot people don't realize if it wasn't for this shoe the Air Jordan 3 WOULD NOT EXIST. Also Nike was thinking about having MJ endorse the Air Revolutions, this was before Tinker had became head designer for MJ's shoes & this was also around the time MJ was thinking about leaving Nike.

Did the originals have perforated leather across the entire forefoot?  I seem to recall the originals were made of smooth leather.

 @baby gerald Yeah they had that perforated leather. I still have the White/Red pair from above, but from 2002 in my closet.
