I don't think they have ever been retroed.  I've had several sneaker heads say they never even knew they existed.  These are from 1995 and I'm not sure if they had other colorways.   They have another model that I believe came before them called the Nike Air Street Defender.  I have a couple pairs of them too. I'll have to dig them up and snap some pics.
I had the white ones in 96...wish Nike would retro..insta cop

I have a bunch of the OG Diamond Turfs for sale.

Thanks. I'm not a Lakers fan at all mainly because I can't stand Kobe but I'm sure someone who loves them will appreciate the cw. Actually they just sold. Buyer lives in Cali, go figure.:D

I found a pair today when I went and dug through the stash. The box says Ndestruckt and the tag with the name on the side of the box just says Ndestrukt so I guess they are the ones your talking about. I have a ton of work to do taking picss of all the kicks I grabbed but I'll have some up in the next day or so.

Are all these turfs wearable? I see some of these shoes on the bay from time to time but I'm not into collectors items, any insight??

It's hard to say really. From what I have heard the Barrages are straight to wear. They are a pretty heavy duty shoe and they don't have air pockets. As far as the rest I don't think so but then again it all depends on how they held up over the years. Obviously if there are any cracks on the midsole then you can't wear them but sometimes a shoe can look perfect but the glue is so dried up that they will fall apart. I always put in all my listings "Wear at your own risk" usually followed by me saying that I personally wouldn't wear them.

Sold this pair of N'Destrukts a couple years back. Called them the Darth Vaders. Probably my favorite of all the N'Destrukts. I really disliked the Shake Evolve NIKE released.

Man, those Air MIsson's, that's the shoe that sparked my passion for Nike and sneakers in general.

I'm glad those Turmoil's game up too, I would take those any day over Diamond/Speed Turfs. Such a clean shoe.

Thanks I appreciate it.  Now that I'm older I find myself looking back at some of the shoes that I wore or admired from a distance and having a friend with SO MUCH stuff from back then is just so fun.  Every time I go see him I will open a box of shoes that I never owned or new the name of or who certain people in my life wore and it takes me back.  Shoes seem so simple but yet they are a part of history too. Yours, mine and everyone elses.  As we get older we think back on our life experiences and if you think hard enough you will remember a pair of kicks that you had...and you'll smile.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this thread and gave me a few more smiles.  I appreciate it.


Some OG Jordans for the hell of it.

I'm still mad that Nike didn't (& probably never will) retro those Black/Bluegrass DT II's, smh.
