The Nike Air Raid “Urban Jungle Gym” From 1993 Is Returning Again
All through 2020, a lot of OGs from Nike Basketball’s 1990s lineup have either been retired or rumored for a rerelease. The original Nike Air Raid is rumored to return before the year ends, but now its bolder “Urban Jungle Gym” hue from 1993 is longed to return, too.
Released with Spike Lee’s “Live Together, Play Together” initiative, the Air Raid showcases its predominant greyscale hue with colorful designs across the tongue, heel, and midsole. Classic double-straps on the upper feature a multi-color peace symbol at the midfoot, which evokes the message of unity Lee showcases in the aforementioned 1992 advertisement. Even though last seen in 2014, the Air Raid “Urban Jungle Gym” is poised to follow its OG color scheme and construction much closer than its last retro sneaker, as a first-look at the pair reveals true “Dark Grey” overlays. While the word has yet to emerge, the release’s complementing Nike Sportswear models (i.e. Air Force 1, Air Max 1) may also retro in the ’90s theme.
Take a first look at this Air Raid retro below, as you wait for official Nike SNKRS release details to emerge.
