The Nike Air Raid hit retailers in 1992 after Tinker Hatfield was given the assignment to create a basketball sneaker specifically for outdoor use. And as always, in typical Tinker fashion, he created another legendary silhouette thanks to the ‘X’ straps that would go on to inspire other models (the Air Jordan VIII, anyone?) Nike has been steadily rolling out new colorways of the retro and at the forefront is this new “Venom Green” shade that should be perfect for summer hooping thanks to the new look hue. Featuring a a wolf grey base, the sneaker gets a speckled black midsole while the strap features venom green stitching to match the Raid’s outsole. Stick around to see more after the click and pick up a pair via select retailers like Politics.
