The Nike Air Slant Mid made a significant impact in the mid/late-’90s. It wasn’t a signature cosigned by Ken Griffey Jr. or Deion Sanders, or a tech showcase like the Air Trainer Maxes that sandwiched its 1996 debut. The Air Slant made its mark with a combination of reasonable pricetag and extremely durable construction. Just look at the Air Slant and you get the sense that this is a rugged shoe, from its monstrous midsole and turf-eating traction to the angular upper that often reveals strong contrasts.
