Air Mission Accomplished: True Royal
Last summer, Nike made a promise that the Air Mission would be triumphantly returning in 2014 - and so far they're making good on it. These sneakers, which were worn by the legendary former linebacker Junior Seau of the San Diego Chargers, originally released in 1994 and quickly became one of our favorite NSW football turf trainers. Ten years later, they're back with a vengeance sporting the same combination leather and nubuck build, bold rubber outsole, midfoot strap, heel cushioning and Air-Sole unit.
These minimalist kicks are still getting a refresher, though, with a new colorway that's simple and striking at the same time. Hits of True Royal blue and bright white stand out on an all-black upper, making for a clean palette that has simultaneous retro and modern appeal.
Are you glad these sneakers are back in action?
