Released back in 1989, the Air Max Light never did manage to live up to the success of its predecessor the Air Max 1. However, 2007 saw the re-release of the style, which turned its fortunes around – with it now considered an increasingly rare collector’s item.
For those that missed out on the first re-release, 2011 sees the Nike Air Max Light Vintage Quickstrike being re-released yet again – but in extremely limited quantities.
The new trainer comes in two colour ways:
The colour ways were derived from the originals in order to tribute the iconic design. The trainers themselves feature Nike’s famous vintage treatment to the faded premium suede upper, outsole and pre-yellow rear midsole – giving the footwear a beautiful aged aesthetic. Other details include: Nylon and suede overlays, the visible Max Air unit, as well as the typical Nike branding that we’ve come to expect from Nike – such as the recognisable Nike ‘swoosh’ and branding to the back heel and tongue.
To get your hands on these limited edition trainers we suggest you head over to Urban Industry, Size? or End Clothing now to save disappointment – because who knows when this vintage style will be released again?
