The Nike Air Slant Mid made a significant impact in the mid/late-’90s.  It wasn’t a signature cosigned by Ken Griffey Jr. or Deion Sanders, or a tech showcase like the Air Trainer Maxes that sandwiched its 1996 debut.  The Air Slant made its mark with a combination of reasonable pricetag and extremely durable construction.  Just look at the Air Slant and you get the sense that this is a rugged shoe, from its monstrous midsole and turf-eating traction to the angular upper that often reveals strong contrasts.  Click through to see this 1996 original colorway up close and head to Nike Sportswear shops to get yours this Saturday, May 25th.

I almost lost my life for these shoes in this color way and my '88 corolla at a pay phone in Hialeah in Nov. '96 in the middle of the night. I drove my car home and walked upstairs with my new kicks lumpy ,bloody and proud. Almost twenty years later and my mother still says "you give them whatever they want" fuck that!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As someone who just purchased a pair of air 2 strongs, these are far too busy and gaudy for even me. dope tongue though.

Oh my god. Nike is rolling out the complete repertoire! Never thought I would see these things again in a million years!

The lowtops were even better, I believe.

these will be slept on with the wave of bo jackson and other trainers on their way for the summer. I suspect by July these will be marked down to $80 and below.  A solid non-signature shoe tho, Definitely a good beater.

These came out before the Speed Turfs. Also, they weren't cosigned by Griffey or Deion.  They were just a flagship turf shoe.  Eastbay had good pics of them and maybe had an associated athlete in the pics, but I can't remember.
