A couple years before every other dude’s shirt was done in a two-toned buffalo check, Nike’s Sport Culture Division (the predecessor to Nike Sportswear) issued an Air Max 1 with that look on the ankle collar. Streetwear has cleaned up considerably in recent years, though, and as more elaborate plaids knocked buffalo looks out of retailers, we’ve seen less and less on sneakers. Well here’s a new pair of Nike Air Max Lights that looks exactly like a super-fresh shirt from 2007, with a purple and orange buffalo plaid sockliner bringing together this otherwise grey and black pair’s two main accent shades. Once you’re in em, this serves as just a hint of color on an otherwise subtle design, and they’ll make for nice punctuation to a variety of fits when you grab a pair from NSW retailers like Titolo.
Color: Neutral Grey/Anthracite
