At Jimmy Jazz we know Heat, which is why we are proud to announce that we will be participating in the release of the Nike Air Raid "Urban Jungle Gym" this upcoming Saturday 7/26/14. So why does it look like these sneakers jumped out of a Spike Lee coloring book? The original Nike Air Raid shoe was released in 1992 and the commercial for the shoe was directed by Spike Lee. It was shot on an "Urban Jungle Gym" basketball court, starring Spike Lee and the man with the "killer crossover," Tim Hardaway, who at the time was endorsed by Nike. The commercial only featured the Black and grey original color way, however, Nike later released a limited pair of the White "Urban Jungle Gym" as well as a Black "Urban Jungle Gym." The shoe is also referred to as the Air Raid "Peace" due to the peace symbol on the cross-foot straps. So if you really got OG flavor you do not want these missing from your repertoire, if you really got the juice.

Aside from being a part of history, Nike did a great job in creating a great basketball shoe. According to Nike, the Air Raid's design features cross-foot straps and an Air-Sole heel unit for stability and comfort. The PU midsoles with encapsulated Air-Sole unit in heel give the shoe lightweight cushioning. The rubber outsole helps with durability and traction. They'll be available on Jimmyjazz.com and in select Jimmy Jazz Stores this weekend as a family release in all sizes. The New Era snapback cap pictured below is also available for purchase.
