Deion Sanders started for the Atlanta Braves on October 11th, 1992 during Game 4 of their NLCS clash with the Pittsburgh Pirates, took an overnight flight down to Fort Lauderdale, FL to play all but one down on defense for the Falcons against the Miami Dolphins the next day, and then managed to make it to Game 5 back in Pittsburgh that same Sunday via two limos, a helicopter and a chartered plane. It’s probably the most impressive dual-sports switch we’ve ever seen, and required timing a bit more precise than this latest release from Nike Sportswear. Originally scheduled as a June 2010 release, the Nike Air Diamond Turf is finally ready for another round of retros, and we’ll start with the OG white/black/red/gold colorup that could pull double duty as a reminder of Prime Time’s Super Bowl-winning season with the 49ers. These are starting to show up at select retailers like Extra Butter, or you can grab a pair of the Diamond Turf 2010s now on eBay.
Color: White/Black-Sport Red-Metallic Gold
