The Best Nike Sneakers By Decade by Stephen Cheetham

Every sneakerhead has his/her distinct tastes when it comes to Nike sneakers, and usually those tendencies can be categorized not only by style, but by the era. The 70′s, 80′s, 90′s, and 00′s were all special in their own right primarily because each 10-year block was so unique from one another – the 1970′s had the simple runners like the Cortez, while the 90′s introduced brighter colors and more high-tech designs like the Air Max 90 and the Mowabb. Artist Stephen Cheetham, who we’ve featured before from his involvement in sneaker-related art exhibits, continued his personal sneaker history by creating illustrations of his favorite by decade; while he calls the Nike Bruin his favorite sneaker of all-time, his range of ‘likes’ is worth noting as it includes some forgotten gems that you may have stashed somewhere in your memory. If this type of art looks familiar, you’re probably thinking of Robb Harskamp, who was commissioned by Nike to create illustrations for Tinker Hatfield’s 30th Anniversary Party (and was also a name in a light controversy with Kick Draw sneaker art). Check out the decade-by-decade illustrations of Cheetham’s favorite Nikes below and let us know which decade you like best! Photos: artandsole

Nike Bruin VNTG ‘Red Mahogany’

Vintage Dunks preceded them in 2008 and pre-yellowed Terminators debuted around the same time the following year, but the Blazer High VNTG from Nike Sportswear has only shared that attic-found look with a select few retro runners over the past three years or so. The Vintage Blazer itself is going through several changes at the moment, so it’s a perfect time to see the NSW golden classics lineup expanding, the pair pictured above proof that a second run of Nike Bruin VNTG releases is on the way. These employ a microperforated texture on their Red Mahogany suede uppers, and while this ventilation is new for both this model and its antique cohorts, the oxidized sole and unfinished nylon tongue keep things familiar. They’ll be available at select NSW retailers in May and you can pre-order yours today from End.

Nike Bruin ‘Khaki Perf’

An SB staple for just about three years now, the Nike Bruin returned to the more general Beaverton fold as a Sportswear division release this spring as five new Vintage colorways hit the scene. This one doesn’t carry the VNTG tag or its traditional pre-yellowed laces/sole, but the unfinished nylon tongue and its orange-Swooshed, cursive-branded tongue tag are both typical of the already-loved look some gobble up while others think of as a four-letter word. Perforated Khaki suede pushes this venture in between vintage and deadstock further down its uniquely defined path, and at the end we get an April 2012 release pre-selling at CrookedTongues that’ll remain eminently wearable until they become a ‘true’ vintage item.

Nike Bruin VNTG – Grey – Black

The Nike Bruin may be forced to play second fiddle to its cousin the Blazer at times, but that’s no excuse for you to sleep on these minimal suede lowtops. While the model has enjoyed a decent tenure under the Nike SB wing, which peaked when Supreme spruced up a few pairs back in ’09, the shoe doesn’t pop up too often beyond the SB realm. Retro fans have cause to rejoice now though, as 2012 will see a crop of Nike Bruins with the VNTG touch, a treatment that seems to be gradually toning down perhaps in response to community reaction. Follow us after the jump for a full look at this grey and black Bruin and hit up mita sneakers to grab them before they hit the US.

Nike Bruin VNTG @ Nike Harajuku

Nike seems eager to make sure that you stay laced in Swooshes when it comes to selecting low cut old-school models to rock in the coming months. The Nike Pre Montreal Racer is now readily available, the Nike Cortez is getting some new looks, and of course the Nike Bruin is back as well with the VNTG look. The three new pairs of the Nike Bruin VNTG we’ve got a look at here come in sort of an RGB pack, albeit with the slightly faded suede tones on the uppers registering them not quite bright. Follow us after the jump for a full look at these which are starting to pop up overseas at spots like Nike Harajuku.

Nike Bruin VNTG

Here’s another anachronistic case of the Nike Bruin, born a year before the initial crop of Blazers were released, set to follow in its higher-cut younger cousin’s footsteps.  First it was on the Nike SB roster where the Bruin has come to enjoy a spot in the regular Swoosh skateboarding rotation alongside a variety of vulc and cupsoled Blazers, and now in the Sportswear division and a style in which we’ve seen the Blazer High more than any other model.  These Vintage Bruins come with the same lightly pre-yellowed soles, suede uppers and white leather Swooshes we’ve come to expect from the VNTG Blazer line, green, black and purple colorways now available for pre-order in advance of their January ship date from End.
