    Coming from Nike's ACG line, the much anticipated Nike Air Mowabb QS is finally ready for release. These classic reissues feature the same color schemesthat debuted back in 1991, and due to its popularity of the color schemes it was widely known as the "Mowabb color" and were used in various sneakermodels. These shoes will be made up of highly durable and lightweight materials for superior comfort and quality. Pre-orders are being accepted now atatmos-tokyo and are set to be released on January 31st.

    Was it these or the low ones that look more like runners? I know those have been at outlets more recently. Anyway, I really like the AF1's they did inthis CW, but I don't think I'd cop these. They look good though. Just not my steeeez.

    This appears to be the second time around for this to retro IIRC - not including the horrid reimagining of the shoe they did 2-3 years ago..

    I got my retro maybe 3-4 years ago

    You're thinking about the Huarache Runners in a Mowabb colorway. The actual Mowabb shoe, like the one pictured above, was retroed a coupleyears ago.

    Oh right, the huarache's, that's what I was thinking of. In this colorway. These are the OG's that inspired the CW on so many other shoes. Idon't think I ever saw those Mowabb retros around my way at all.

    Just walked into my friend's office and saw an OG pair of these sitting down under his desk, lol. Beat to hell, but still wearable after all these years.That's some solid construction!

    Dude: They're ACGs... I wore my old OG Air Madas @ work until a hole appeared in the Regrind outsole [​IMG][​IMG] - they def. last a while moreso than your standard Nikes

    Heh, I guess when you name something "All Condition Gear", you have to build it tough enough to live up to its name.

    Although, somehow I doubt that more recently constructed ACG's are as tough and longlasting as the OGs form the 90s...

    You can still find the 2004 retro in NYC for like .25 ...


    These were RTV'd HARD when they first re-released. I don't see them moving this time around either. Talk about back to the future part II.
