There couldn’t be a more appropriate Nike Running model to test out this sick Steve Prefontaine Running Man logo. Nike historians know just how critical Steve Prefontaine is to the genesis of the Nike brand, and although he life was cut short, he’s paved the way for the world’s greatest athletes to align with Nike over the next four decades. This rare 2005 sample features the Nike Air Epic with the signature Nike-style embroidered silhouette logo on the heel, showing Prefontaine doing what he did best, and although these never did release, they may have been produced as a special promo to mark the 30th Anniversary of Prefontaine’s death (Nike also released a Prefontaine commercial that year as well). Definitely a gem of a find for Nike fans, so take a look and see the full listing from rkd4life on eBay.
