Nike Celebrates 5 Decades of Basketball

It’s no secret that Nike is responsible for dropping some of the most iconic basketball silhouettes in sneaker culture. Since the 1970s, they’ve been creating styles, color ways, and designs that make their basketball shoes pop both on and off the court. Nike has a never-ending arsenal of heat and they will continue to drop iconic pairs for years to come. To celebrate the past 50 years of sneaker design, Nike launched the 5 Decades of Basketball Pack. This collection includes silhouettes from the 1970s to the new millennium. The Blazer, Air Force 1, Air Foamposite Pro, Zoom Generation, and Flight Bonafide are all part of this collection. Check out the specifics below and look for the pack to drop in KITH Manhattan on February 10th and worldwide February 18th.

The Original 1972 Blazer is remastered with premium Vachetta leather with embossed branding and laces.

The 1982 Air Force 1 Sport luxury is a redesign of the original with full-grain Vacehetta leather, premium stitching, and drop-in Lunarlon for ultimate comfort. The rose gold accents highlight some of the most iconic features of the shoe.

The Foamposite One turned the sneaker game up in the 90s. For the first time ever, this classic is designed with a premium Vachetta leather overlay.

Bringing in the new millennium was the Zoom Generation. This was LeBron’s original signature shoe and is remastered for this pack in Vachetta leather. The rose gold hardware and leather laces are a luxe touch to this classic silhouette. 

The Zoom Flight 95 aka Flight Bonafide was the shoe of the future when it dropped. The futuristic design pays homage to the past with breathable flying construction and easy zip-fastening. The Zoom Air feature is a plus for performance and durability.
