Nike recently revived the 1995 Air Streak Lite in its original “Back On Track” colorway, and now it has surfaced in three retro-tinged offerings.

This sneaker was originally created by Nike’s first Japanese creation team in 1995, and went on to inspire the production of various Nike Running silhouettes such as the Air Streak 7 and Air Streak Lite 4. In contradiction to the Swoosh’s chunky-soled ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT%, the Air Streak Lite maintains its original low-platform and streamlined aesthetic that made it one of the brand’s most popular running silhouettes in its day.

For 2020, Nike revives the Air Streak Lite in three unique colorways — “Aloe Verde/White/Arctic Punch/Black,” “Black/Dark Grey/White/Wolf Grey” and “Summit White/White/Persian Violet/Metallic Gold.” Each is adorned with embroidered Japanese calligraphy on its tongue, translating to “fast” as a nod to its roots. The pair is made with a combination of suede and mesh, with smooth leather being used for the Swoosh logo on the mid-panels.

All of the cut-outs and shapes on the Air Lite Streak are true to the original, playing on the notion of its lightweight running approach with lightning bolt shapes and wavy overlays. Take a look at all three Nike Air Streak Lites in the gallery above, and pick up your favorite pair from Nike stores and online for $110 USD now.

In other news, BAPE’s “ABC CAMO” has returned to the BAPESTA.
