Running has been a foundational part of Nike‘s DNA since the Blue Ribbon Sports days, and one of Nike Running‘s early icons is the Omega Flame, a do-anything shoe that debuted in 1983. Now, size? has brought the original Omega Flame back as an exclusive release — and all its original detailing and bold colorblocking is intact.

Like many other early ’80s running shoes, the Omega Flame blends a nylon base with suede overlays. Unlike many of its counterparts, the Omega Flame features an ombre fade graphic that starts with a bright yellow on the toebox before giving way to a smoldering reddish-orange on the midfoot, a detail that made it wildly popular in England’s boisterous terrace culture. Swooshes and heel tabs alike are presented in vivid yellow leather, while the aforementioned overlays keep things sweltering with a red shade. More yellow branding can be seen on the tongue tag, and down below white EVA foam midsoles work with black rubber outsoles to round off the look.

The size?-exclusive Nike Omega Flame is set to release on the size? launches app to correspond with ComplexLand 2.0, which runs from June 16-18.
