Nike may have only recently grabbed a hold of the NFL outfitting rights, but their gridiron vision stretched back to the original days of the brand. In the 1970’s, the one of the first Nike shoes (simply called ‘The Nike’ was an on-field grass/turf shoe), which paved the way for the Astrograbber and Shark in the same decade. In the 80’s came a stronger focus on Training with the Air Trainer 1, Trainer SC, and Field General, and by the 90’s, Nike got super-stylish with Turf classics like the Zoom Turf (the Barry Sanders joints) and the Air Veer.

With Nike and pigskin being such a trendy topic lately, let’s take a look back at one of Nike’s most notable made-for-football shoes – the Nike Shark of 1988; this high-cut design features a stylish upper that looked like a basketball shoe, but featured the turf-ready outsole, a ‘SHARK’ detailing on the outer fore-foot, and a slick grass and chalk-line insole – something you don’t see much of in that era of footwear design. A complete look at this Nike Football classic is just ahead, so take a look and place an offer on this listing from dballaholic on eBay.
