With Nike Sportswear’s VNTG releases, you can relive the past without the worry of the memory crumbling at your feet…literally. Since Nike started to pre-yellow its midsoles and wear down the suede uppers, the search for true vintage kicks may have slowed down a bit, and the most recent releases of the Air Max Light Quickstrikes, the search may but all be over. These Lights have that true old-school appeal with the softer, aged appeal, and the fact that only the rear portion of the two-part midsole was yellowed is actually quite accurate – only the polyurethane is vulnerable to yellowing while EVA at the forefoot is not. Check out the new shots of these releases below and pick them up now at stateside retailers like WEST or on eBay.
