Nike Sportswear’s casual catalog made a pronounced shift over the past couple years. Classic basketball-derived styles like the Air Flytop and Air Royal gave way to a highly popular running-based approach anchored by the indomitable Roshe Run and a variety of EXT releases. If you’re searching for that 1980s basketball look outside of the standby Air Force 1s and Dunks, then there’s a new option whose very name captures the essence of this movement codifying performance classics as today’s casual standards. The Nike Court Tranxition looks the part of an old school b-ball hightop but this vibrant colorway makes evident this is a brand new style.

Nike Sportswear’s footwear lineup is largely comprised of classic runners, basketball shoes and trainers. We’ve seen each of these classes cycle old silos in and out of the rotation while creating new styles based on their fundamental elements, and no group has been better represented than the ones derived from early ’80s b-ball models.

The shoe’s curious name might be attributed to the ‘transition’ on the rear midsole that leads to some interestingly clean blocking options, and you can see the first two colorways in detail below before buying at Footaction.
