Seeing as my last post was about the OG Nike Air Flow, following up with the Air Current seemed like a logical option. Released a year after the Air Flow, the Current looked to take even more weight from the uppers, utilising a ripstop material and removing the Swoosh altogether. Slightly less snug than the Air Flows, the laces are, again, not necessary unless you’re doing some sprinting on your way home from the pub.
The Current name has been applied to recent models since 1990 (the Air Max Current 90s spring to mind), but it’s all about the originals for me.
These also came in a black and green colourway, but this hot pink and black scheme is the one to get. I just watched a heavily worn pair of the black/greens go on a Buy-It-Now on eBay for a nice $900! Yikes.
