The Nike Air Max Invigor Print Mens Trainers Red started out in sports and its dope style elevated it to iconic status. Originally a lowcut basketball shoe known as the Tournament, the extremely comfortable sneaker with the simple design was easily translated into a lifestyle shoe. After the buttery suede silhouette was adopted by hip-hop heads, the off-court appeal of the Campus stepped firmly into the streets.
Heralded as one of Tokyo’s most celebrated stores, MITA consistently produce high-end collaborations that not only thrust classic styles into the 21st century, but sympathetically adhere to their history, the Air Max 1 Ultra Flyknit Black White being no exception. Available in two colourways – Black & University Red and Cardinal & Running White – this collaborative reworking utilises premium pigskin suede uppers that accentuate the simple profile of the shoe.
The detailing is authentically simple, with a tonal lace set and white leather stripe and heel tab adding a fresh appeal.The vintage effect dying process also adds a new dynamic to the shoe which will only get stronger as the uppers begin to age and develop a character of their own. Finishing off the trainer is a cork insole which has a printed wire fence pattern overlay, referencing the popularity of the Adidas NMD Hu Trail Core Black within urban subcultures.
Speaking personally, there’s nothing better than a nice clean pair of buttery suede Adidas Nmd R1 Primeknit Triple Black. It’s one of the more low key adidas Originals lines that’s held a solid place within the brand for years. Having never really seen the spotlight as much as it’s sibling the Superstar or Stan Smith, it’s one of those underrated shoes that’s always just been casually chilling in the background.
