Nike Court Borough Low History

Patterned after the silhouette of the bestselling Nike sneaker of all time, the Air Force 1, the Nike Court Borough Low shoe was created in 2016 as an homage to the on and off-court silhouette of the popular high top sneaker released in 1982.

The Nike Court Borough Low has several striking resemblances to the Air Force 1 starting with the perforated leather upper and the low, mid, and high top variations. Both shoes also feature a Swoosh logo on the side panel and a rubber cup sole for a good grip and traction.

This retro street-style basketball silhouette of the Nike Court Borough sneaker comes from the boroughs that have popularized the neighborhood courts where these shoe style originated and started its massive following.

From the basketball shoes that once graced the boroughs of New York, the first design of the Nike Air Force 1 Boroughs Pack was released sometime in 2010. The Boroughs Pack of the popular Air Force 1 became the inspiration behind the 2016 release of this laidback on and off-court sneaker.

Also influencing the design of the Nike Court Borough Low is the Dunk from Nike which came out sometime 1986 and has been retro-ed for several times by the brand. But the most influence, and almost similar in design aspects to the Nike Court Borough Low is the Nike Recreation Low which came out in 2012. Bold Nike branding at the back heel, perforations all over the leather upper, and rubber cup sole completed the look of the sneaker.

In 2016, the Nike Court Borough Low was released by the world’s largest shoe manufacturer as an everyday wear. The shoe which looks sleek and clean on and off-court is a promising lifestyle sneaker that has been positively accepted by many sneaker fans around the world for its affordable pricing, simple silhouette, and durable materials.
