Having originally been released in 1976, and recently reissued (in a slightly different design) as part of Junya Watanbe’s Comme des Garcons collection, the Sting is an absolute classic runner from Nike. This long awaited reissue has been subjected to Nike’s unique vintage treatment with a yellowed sole and distressed fabric. The upper is made up of nylon and suede and comes in a choice of two colorways: orange, white, and green or red, sail and gold. The shoe also features an old school printed “NIKE” on the heel.
The Nike Sting will be available July 11th, 2009 at Atmos Tokyo.
