Strangely enough at first glance there seems to be no visual difference between Span Is and IIs if you look up vintage pairs, but there most likely was?? Not sure what exactly.47 Nike Air Span
An amazing shoe that's rarely mentioned, the Span was left in the shade by the pricier Stab and lure of exposed Air, although they were picked up by runners looking for something that looked good, performed well and didn't cost the earth. It's imbued with the design elements of the time, but in white, grey and light blue this felt like the lump sum of the previous decade's finest offerings. There's plenty more from this era that don't get the shine they deserve, but this (and not the faintly inferior Span II) deserves a reissue, just so a new generation can appreciate this road running creation.
Cosign! When those came out the were like 299 guilders in 1990 in Holland. NO WAY my mom said… Found them in 1996 on sale in Rome. Later they got stolen on Curaçao. It still hurts 20 years later…I really really hope they bring the infrared colorway back again. I’ll buy multiples
