Nike Air Raid Black Grey OG 2020 – Release Date
Nike is dipping into its historical reserves and bringing back the classic Nike Air Raid OG Black Grey on the 8th of October for a retail price of $140. The Nike Air Raid OG Black Grey 2020 was initially released back in 1992 and then again in 2014. This classic out-door basketball shoe has an interesting design as well as an interesting history.
The shoe was released in competition to Reebok’s Pump Blacktop – which was the first sneaker that was every designed primarily for outdoor basketball games. Nike saw the rise of a niche and decided to go all-in against Reebok and to claim outdoor basketball as their own.
The founder of Nike, Phil Knight, discovered the Black Top and then left a note on one of the executive’s desk that he wanted Nike’s iteration of it. The note was passed on to Tinker Hatfield and the Nike Air Raid OG Black Grey formed existence.
The shoe became an instant fan favorite when Nike released an iconic commercial featuring Tim Hardway and Spike Lee. Fun fact, Tinker Hatfield initially wanted to call the sneaker Air Jack as people would want to “jack” the sneakers off your feet the instant they saw them, but that idea was scrapped and the Air Raid took the moniker of this silhouette.
