Nike Air Max Express (Fall 2012 - Ken Griffey Jr. II Bottom)

Turf shoes are all the rage again at retail, primarily due to Nike retro styles, particularly the Ken Griffey Jr. line. The Swoosh can’t keep churning out the old Swingman series indefinitely without potentially fatiguing the consumer (or running of out models and colorways to bring back!) though, so it’s continuing a remix strategy we’ve seen across brands and categories lately borrowing old tooling and merging it with new upper designs. That brings us to the new Nike Air Max Express, which you get a first look at now.

Previewed here in five Fall 2012 colorways:

- Speed Yellow/Black-Speed Yellow
- Sport Red/Black-Sport Red
- Hot Punch/Cool Grey-Game Royal
- Black/Black-Pine Green
- Total Orange/Dark Grey-Imperial Purple

Nike Air Max Express picks up the popular Air Griffey Max II midsole/outsole base and unifies it with a new Hyperfuse composite upper complete with a giant midfoot strap reminiscent of old Swoosh training shoes. Expect the Express to clear the retail runway in the second half of next year with a price target of $150.

Interesting... colorways need a lot of work though.

Not too bad, wouldn't buy though. Especially with that Griffey II sole... means they will feel like bricks, same as the retro II's that just came out.

Saw a couple of colorways in GS sizes at Athletes Foot and Footaction, pretty nice. Might look to cop a pair down the line. That hot punch colorway is nice!

Wish they would've kept the white sole on the black/yellow pair. They're still decent, though.

The black/green colorway looked really good in person. In all honesty, I was holding them in my hands earlier and they didn't seem bad. I can't fade that $150 price tag though...
Felt sorry for my maid, I gave that girl a raise. She said you got too many Js, I'd be cleaning for days.

If they cost less and had any kind of a blue colorway id prolly pick up a pair, but the only good cw's of these are actually kids only sizes... wtf nike. mean.gif

Ive been waiting to see if any other cw's would surface but doesnt look like it.
