Believe it or not, the DNA behind the Air Speed Turf Max is shared with the Air Yeezy 2, which Nike officially unveiled earlier today. The Yeezy was inspired by 90′s Cross Training sneakers in mind, but obviously the Air Speed Turf Max had an evolved design that was rooted from the earliest Air Trainer. This upcoming 2012 release is sure to be one of the best Retro releases of the year – or at least that’s what the hundreds of ‘Likes’ from the last time we showed you these Dolphins joints signifies. If you’re part of the lucky population that can rock the Nike sample size, your day just got better; a size 9 sample of the Air Speed Turf Max ‘Dolphins’ just because available, so take a look at the extra shot below and cop this sample from blind15d on eBay.

If you grew up feasting on the tank-like turf trainers with chunky mid-foot straps and terrain-stomping midsoles, this upcoming Retro release is going to fatten you up quite nicely. Sneaker News dropped the first catalog views of the Nike Air Speed Turf Max – one of which was the original White/Black/Teal/Orange colorway that we’ve come to recognize as the ‘Miami Dolphins’ colorway (Marino wore these in the 90′s). It’s got everything that makes a Turf Trainer perfect, with the aggressive design, sports-car like branding of NIKE and AIR along the body, impeccable placements of the Swoosh, and quite frankly one of the best colorways we’ve ever seen on an athletic sneaker. Extra shots of this upcoming Retro release below, so take a look and let us know what you think! Photos: ix_eleven
