Its sibling, the Nike Air Flow, launched in the same year. Both having angular cut out details in the quarter panels, these two creations were liked by many and instigated a cult following back in the days. Lightweight and form-fitting, it shared a lot of similarities with the iconic Nike Sock Racer designed by famous Swoosh designer and genius Bruce Kilgore.

After five years, this retro runner returns with a streamlined upper and a slimmed-down sole unit. Known as the Nike Current Slip-On, its function, however, has taken a backseat, in order to give this version a more contemporary look. Nonetheless, it still carries the original’s elastic midfoot strap and lacing system.
