Alongside the famed Air Jordan 1, another Nike silhouette that made its debut in 1985 was the Nike Air Epic. However, even though the Air Epic didn’t make as much of a splash as the AJ1, it was the first shoe at the time to incorporate 3M detailing. After a small return in 2003 as a Foot Patrol collaboration and then again in 2012, the Air Epic is now back as a general release.
