The Nike Air Barrage Returns For The First Time Since 1995

feature image

During the ’90s, Nike was out to stake their claim as the premier purveyor of turf shoes for the NFL’s greatest athletes, and one of their creations was the bold Air Barrage, a striking mid-top silhouette that has now returned to market for the first time since its original release in 1995. Worn by the transcendent Marshall Faulk during his early days with the Indianapolis Colts and the consistent Ernie Mills from the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Barrage was most well-known for its eye-catching layered upper and bold Air branding, a detail that also appeared on other ’95 classics like the Air Max Uptempo. Although most of the original releases were straightforward, team-appropriate, two-color makeups, the Swoosh Brand has opted to get a little more colorful with this retro version. The upper combines a purple mesh base with black overlays and pops of sporty red, all while doling out a sizeable scoop of Swooshes, which appear on the midfoot strap, quarter, tongue, toebox, and tri-color heel tab. The tongue offers an abstract-shaped purple rubber patch, and a bulky midsole complete with the aforementioned “AIR” embellishment finalizes the look. This cult-classic piece of Nike Football history is available now at select overseas retailers, and will arrive at stateside stockists on July 1st for $150 USD, so get a detailed look directly below.
