Mention the Nike Air Accel and talks of the Nike Air Terra Humara usually follow. Both share similarly designed midsoles and shapes but the Terra Humara was designed more so for “offroading” and the Accel more so for pounding the pavement. Prices for pairs in excellent to new condition are usually in the 80-200 range depending on size and colorway. Head on over to eBay now or save your money and wait for a possible retro somewhere down the line.
The Reebok Question came in a bunch of colorway’s both in Hi and Low form and anyone that loves the shoe knows that the releases with suede toe caps gets special attention. This carolina blue version of the question released during the very late part of the 90′s and featured functional soft Hexalite, especially soft leather uppers and a colorway that has never seen a release again. If you’re looking for a set and wear a size 9 then you are in luck because there is a set up for sale on eBay now.
If you had to interpret the Nike Aqua Sock into a basketball shoe then this would be it. Sleek, lightweight and laceless the Nike Team Supreme is a timeless shoe that today is difficult to come by. They ran snug so sizing was similar to that of a running shoe and prices are fair at around 40-85 USD (anything over that is to much unless (although at the end of the day its up to you how much their worth)). Forego the Timbs and try to track down a pair of these late 90′s gems.
The BB705GW was a performance basketball shoe that, well, looked pretty good. A Jordan XIV it was not but the shoe did feature a full grain leather upper, carbon rubber outsole, C-cap midsole and Abzorb in the heel. Colorway’s weren’t flashy but the design was a little more edgy than other NB basketball shoes from the time period. If you can snag a pair today and are a NB fan then these are a must for your collection, take a trip back to 1999 above!
The Response trail featured a water resistant upper, loop lacing system, protective toe bumper, compressed EVA midsole, external thermoplastic heel counter and one piece rubber outsole with rugged tread for traction. Typical Adidas quality rounded out a solid shoe that was more for the regular dude than the sneaker enthusiast. Take a trip back to the late 90′s above.
