Back in 1989 the Nike Air Revolution hit the hardcourt and changed the future of basketball footwear forever, the silhouette’s visible Nike Air cushioning enabling the shoe to live up to its lofty moniker. Nearly a quarter century later Nike revisits the revolution with the releases of the women’s Nike Air Revolution Sky High — the first Sky Hi to feature visible Nike Air — and matching Nike Air Revolution for men. Both come in Black/Arctic Green colorways, the men’s pair accented with tonal safari overlays and the women’s accented with a speckled white midsole. “Lover” accents on the inside ankle straps of both pairs celebrate the love of the iconic silhouette as well as the game of basketball. Look for the Nike Air Revolution and Revolution Sky High to launch at select Nike Sportswear retailers starting August 16th.
