Nike Killshot OG: An underrated courtside sneaker

Introduced initially as a performance tennis footwear in the 70s, the Nike Killshot OG is now released as a crisp casual favorite. This remastered version features heritage styling with modern technology to keep up with the current market.

Unlike the leather-covered Nike Killshot 2, the OG version is made with an airy mesh reinforced with suede overlays. Underfoot, Nike kept the old-school rubber cupsole to add character and retro flair. And on the side and heel, the Swoosh retained the heritage branding to complete its signature look. 

What makes the Killshot OG remarkable?

This Nike's special project pack flaunts a standout style as it features a few retro details. Nike kept the vintage slim shape and eye-catching low Swoosh logo on the side that further push the vibrant and bold retro vibe. This sneaker also boasts the exposed foam on the tongue, similar to the Off-Whites, to solidify the 70s look.
