Nike has brought back one of the most iconic sneakers from the 80’s in the classic OG colorway. NikeLab is set to hold a surprise release of the legendary basketball sneakers. We last saw the sneakers featured in a John Elliot collaboration in June. The sneaker was speculated to see a second release during ASAP Bari’s rumored Vlone Nike collaboration after being revealed in Paris, but the deal has been called off. Since then no info on a Vlone collaboration has re-emerged.
Returning to it’s roots the sneaker comes adorned with a nylon metallic silver upper, a leather swoosh and the iconic striped ankle strap. Today, sneakers are built in a different fashion and the shoes are considered more of a lifestyle silhouette than a basketball shoe. Production of the shoe came to halt back in 1987, due to poor sneaker sales. The velcro and unique designs have always been a major hit among sneakerheads. We are excited to see what NikeLab has in store for the surprise release.
Stay tuned for more details on the release of the Nike Vandal High OG. Check out more images of the shoe in the gallery below.
