For added security, the pair is designed with a midfoot VELCRO strap, and underneath the stay-put belt is the traditional lace-up closure.

Nike Air Barrage Mid Style

The classic Nike shoe is undeniably large and is taking charge of the streets. Screaming with boldness, the Nike Air Barrage Mid is hard to ignore. The take on the 90s sneaker is outstanding, which provides its wearers a unique look.

Aside from the functions of the leather uppers and the large midfoot strap found on this remodeled sneaker, it is also responsible for giving the shoe its attention-grabbing silhouette. The large hook and loop strap on the midfoot can be worn open or closed for a different styling option.

The VELCRO strap feature of the shoe also allows the wearers to wear the shoe lace-free. The Air Barrage Mid is also produced in bold colorways that give off a retro vibe. The mid-top style of the shoe does not only provide ankle support but also brings out the same classic ambiance of a high top sneaker.

The sneaker also shows off a large midfoot strap with overt branding. Aside from the strap, the branding is found on the tongue, midsole, heel, and toe box of the shoe.

For an easy on and off, an elastic heel pull tab is available. For a soft, cushy stride and impact absorption, the Air Barrage Mid is constructed with a full-length Nike Air unit. The sneaker is also designed with a padded collar for additional comfort.

Nike Air Barrage Mid History

The Nike Air Barrage Mid is a 1 to 1 revamp of the classic 90s training shoe. Swoosh brought the silhouette back from its archive and has not failed to make it more alluring than ever. Besides, bringing classic shoes back up in the market never fails since the aesthetics of the 90s never goes out of style.


The Air Barrage Mid is crafted with the same hot look from back then. The shoe also stayed true to the bold 90s colorways. 

Ever since its debut in 1995, the shoe is brought back by Nike in 2019 dressed in the famous "Raptors" colors. The silhouette features a white leather on the front, a purple mesh on the underlays, and a black overlay with red accents. The look is completed with the white swoosh logo on the midfoot strap. 

After releasing it in "Raptors" accents, the brand also made the shoe with the "Warriors" iteration, which clothes the sneaker with white, Lacer Orange, Racer Blue, and black color schemes.

It is also available in the following colorways: Black/White-Cabana, which is finished with Aqua accents, White/Midnight Navy-Black-Laser Orange, classic Black/White, and White/Red with black details. One of the shoe's colorways also takes inspiration from the undefeated San Francisco 49ers, which is a combination of Metallic Gold, University Red, and black.
