Nike RT1 - Black Red - April 2009 Release

In the beginning of 2009, a Nike high-top sneaker surfaced on the web in a style that didn’t quite fit into the vein of classic Nike high-tops such as Air Flights or Nike Dunks.  By the middle of January, it was confirmed that this extremely fresh kick  was to be called the Nike RT1 and would release sometime during the course of 2009.  Just the other day, we showed you a photo shoot in which Jim Jones was showing off these dope kicks, but now we finally have detailed images that give us a clear idea of the first colorway of Nike’s newest lifestyle sneaker.

The RT1 draws influences from Nike’s classic Air Trainer 1 (RT1 = Revolution Trainer 1), but the RT1 stands out from Nike’s lineage with a fresh style of it’s own.   For the black/red of the RT1, a white sole starts things off being accented by a 3/4’s red out-sole.  On the upper you will find an all black scheme, but with an abundant amount of differently textured black, leather.  The top of the toe-box, tongue and part of the mid-panel are all perforated and surrounded by smooth, glossy black leather.  An expected and welcomed “Nike Air” is embroidered onto the heel and surrounded by a grey/black patch of leather that features an asymmetrical, non-uniform honeycomb design (almost reminiscent of a magnified safari print). Inside the sneaker you will find a fine, red fabric that is adorned with black paisley printings.

Along with the upcoming Nike Air Yeezy, all sneaker heads will have something to look forward to this Spring with the addition of the RT1.  As of now, the black/red Nike RT1 is scheduled to release this April.  Be sure to stay tuned to Sneaker News for more information as the release date becomes closer and check out all the pictures below.

Look for these now at select Nike retailers as well as on nikestore.com.
