Nike Sportswear has satisfied older sneakerheads with a variety of retro gems this year, notable releases including the Air Trainer SC II, Air Max2 Trainer ’94 and the above pictured model that can be considered the 94’s basketball counterpart. Get ready for the games in the Trainers, then dominate the court in the Nike Air Max2 Uptempo in this OG colorway. It’s interesting to note that the 1994-95 season during which this shoe became associated with Duke University was sometehing like the exact opposite, the only year during the last 27 seasons the Blue Devils failed to earn an NCAA Tournament bid. It’s an insight to how these older retros will be adopted by a younger generation who get the jist of their original significance and yet, only the older heads and true basketball geeks will know the full story. Get in on the recycled narrative and timeless good looks with a pair purchased from Eastbay or on eBay.
