Nike dug deep into one of the richest areas of its vault to bring back the Air Raid OG in a 1990s-inspired colorway. Dubbed the “Peace” edition, the sneakers come adorned with contrasting line patterns reminiscent of early ’90s Afrocentrism. This particular colorway draws influence from an infamous photo of legendary director Spike Lee in Tuscany in 1993, which finds Lee wearing his own pair of Air Raids back in the day. Underneath the sneaker’s hallmark ‘X’ strapping, the upper is executed with grey nubuck paneling. Black mesh provides a material contrast at the toe box and sides. The pair also cleverly alludes to the distinct cover art for Do The Right Thing, with the tongue tab and heel pull both executed with bold, zagging designs. Enjoy this first look here and pick up the Nike Air Raid OG “Peace” at retailers like Kinetics beginning June 20.
