The Swoosh is discreetly recognizing pairs that debuted in the next decade as it prepares for blockbuster anniversaries of some of its most iconic styles from the 1980s. The Nike Air Speed Turf Max, which debuted in the 1990s and is expected to return in 2022, is one of the alternatives.
The Dan Marino-inspired sneaker is anticipated to return to form after spending the greater part of the preceding decade in the archives, despite having just emerged in a non-original colorway. The turf-ready training sneaker has been commemorated in a variety of ways, with the Miami Dolphins’ version being one of the most popular. The boldness of Nike’s turf shoes from the 1990s is reintroduced in a kid-only release in white, vivid green, gold, and blue, but it also betrays the lack of Air Max cushioning. Non-adult sizes might be branded the “Nike Air Speed Turf,” and classic colors could be accessible for kids as too, alleviating the disappointment of the pair’s lack of original tech features.
