Nike Air Vortex
The Nike Air Vortex was first unveiled in 1985 as part of the so-called V series together with the Vector and Vengeance models. When it was relaunched in 2011 the Vortex went down like a bomb in the retro running sector, initially in its original colors with the golden Swoosh and later in many other colorways. The fan base of this classic 1980s sneaker got bigger with every new colorway release. In 2017, after a brief dry spell, the Vortex is finally back in its original form. But Nike is also taking a future-oriented perspective in running out a new interpretation of the Vortex in the shape of the Air Vortex ´17. This new version is equipped with an IU midsole and a larger Air-sole element in the heel for improved cushioning. Together with the more modern materials on the upper, this creates a successful update that stays true to its roots.
