Nike Air Stab Returning In 2015

nike air stab returning 2015 01 Nike Air Stab Returning In 2015

So Tinker designs the Nike Air Max 1 and it subsequently releases in 1987, changing the way we look at running silhouettes forever. But do you remember what the second sneaker to release with visible air was after that famed shoe? It was 1988′s Nike Air Stability (or Nike Air Stab for short). The shoe featured two icicles dripping down to cover portions of the visible air, and unfortunately the popularity of the sneaker never caught on until the Swoosh brought it back in 2005. Now the Air Stab will be returning for 2015 after a long enough hiatus. This particular colorway is reminiscent of that Size? collaboration that dropped nearly five years ago. What do you think of the return? Stay tuned for more updates.

Sneaker News is jumping back into the Sneakerpedia archives once again. What’s the topic this time? We wanted to give a little bit more shine to the Visible Air technology, Tinker’s brainchild that quietly celebrated its 25th anniversary as of last year. We dug through the various collections on display over at Sneakerpedia in an attempt to uncover some of the most revered, aesthetically striking, and technologically advanced vis-Air sporting sneakers over the years. The result is a visual history of the progression of Nike’s Air Max revolution from 1987 all the way up to 2012. Join us after the jump for a look at the sneakers selected, some OG and some not, and make sure you head to Sneakerpedia to see what other gems are waiting to be discovered.

Classics Revisited: Foot Patrol x Nike Air Stab (2005)

August 23rd, 2012 by | 1 comment

footpatrol x nike air stab Classics Revisited: Foot Patrol x Nike Air Stab (2005)


A little history on the shoe before we get on to the collaboration: the Nike Air Stability (or Stab, for short), was the first Air Max shoe to release after the Air Max 1 launched in 1987. Noted for the unique Air window in which the visibility was creatively blocked with two ‘icicles’ coming down from the top of the midsole, the Air Stability of 1988 didn’t see much action after its initial release as Nike was quickly evolving the Air Max line with newer models featured larger Air Max units. In 2005, Nike re-delivered the Air Stab to the masses (a strange tidbit of info – some boxtags labeled the shoe as ‘Stabb’ rather than ‘Stab’), but it didn’t quite as much steam until UK’s Foot Patrol was called on to re-energize the silhouette.

The Foot Patrol x Nike Air Stab was released in December of 2005 as an in-store exclusive to Foot Patrol in the UK; as they’ve done with previous releases, the Foot Patrol staff went the extra mile to reward its customers, offering English tea in Foot Patrol Stab mugs served by a gorgeous main in a scantily clad uniform. The shoe itself was designed in-house by Foot Patrol, opting for a crisp and clean colorway at the core rather than imposing with a funky gimmick as most sneaker collaborations of the 2005-2007 era had. In the end, the Stabs came out wonderfully and Nike put out plenty of Stab releases in the following years and even launched the shoe on Nike iD. It was a ‘Retro’ done right highlighted by a partnership with one of the best in the game, so check below for more of today’s Classics Revisited and stay tuned for one more big-name collab tomorrow!

Classics Revisited: Nike “Clerks” Pack (2005-2006)

nike clerks pack Classics Revisited: Nike Clerks Pack (2005 2006)


Over the last several weeks, Sneaker News has covered a nice variety (albeit a small chunk of the massive library of sneakers) of notable releases from the last decade for Classics Revisited consisting of Air Max collaborations, early-era Foamposites, and even Air Jordan Lows. Each of the aforementioned carry some heavy weight, but special attention must be given to one particular piece of verbage that continues to be used today – the sneaker ‘Pack’. What a ‘Pack’ annotates is either an official or un-official gathering of sneakers that fall under on specific sub-category – the recent ‘Home Run Derby’ Pack of the Nomo and two Griffeys being a prime example. Beginning in 2005, Nike teamed up with a number of notable sneaker retailers for the ‘Clerks’ Pack, which involved a veritable list of reputable shops like UNDFTD, Stussy, Huf, and Size? over the span of one year. Three major cities were targeted for the Clerks Pack, beginning with Los Angeles in 2005, and followed by London and San Francisco in 2006.

The first leg of the Clerks Pack begin in Los Angeles with Stussy (Blazer Mid ’73), Union (Air Force 180), and UNDFTD (Dunk High NL) and released in 2005; of the three, the Air Force 180 is certainly the attention-grabber of the bunch, with the high-rise silhouette given an astounding visual punch with safari print, a gradient white/pink midsole, and the color-blotted spots on the ankle collar and insole. The Clerks Pack continued in London (April 2006) with three Air Max silhouettes (Air Max 90, Air Stab, and Air Classic BW) with the Air Max 90, inspired by the scenic colors of Brighton Beach, being the most coveted of the three, and finally in San Francisco (July 2006) with NORT (Dunk High), Huf (Air Max 90), and True (Air Humara). If anyone has all nine of the original Clerks Pack to call their own, many kudos for owning one of the most memorable ‘Pack’ releases in Nike history!

size nike air stab neon pack 01 Size? x Nike Air Stab Neon Pack

The Nike Air Stability (or ‘Stab’ for short) returned in 2005 after a long while on the back-room shelf at Nike (some of you may remember the odd ‘Stabb’ designation on the box-tags). Some nice GR colorways as well as a special FootPatrol collab put the Nike Air Stab back on the map but one colorway that never made it into production is this Neon 95-inspired colorway. Three tones of grey on the upper with just the right splash of volt green on the upper will make you lose your mental Stab-ility but luckily for you your senses will go back in working order because Size? is bringing it back this December 3rd. Only 400 pairs of this beauty will be available exclusively at Size? so check out the extra shots after the jump because it’s been nearly a year since a Nike Air Stab was featured on Sneaker News! via wearehq.
