Last week Sneaker News showed you a sample pair of the upcoming Nike Air PR1, a life-style shoe that featured a hybrid between the Nike Air Pressure upper and the midsole of the Air Jordan III. The Air Pressure originally released in 1989 and came housed in an oversized box, and returns in sleeker, slimmed down form. The original version featured a pump accessory on the heel, allowing the shoe to inflate – but the shoe itself was extremely heavy. That apparatus has been removed and the lace-placket also features a simpler construction as well. Remaining is the rubberized strap, which can be pivoted backwards for those who don’t wish to use it. This new colorway features a tonal black upper and midsole and just hit EastBay for pre-order, with a ship date this Friday, September 24th, so take another look after the jump and expect these at Nike Sportswear accounts soon.
