Nike Air Diamond Turf – Black/Deep Emerald-White-Metallic Gold

With the amount of money invested in athletes today, it may be a long time before we see a player actively compete (and excel) in two major North American sports. In the 90s, “Prime Time” Deion Sanders was known for his ability to perform on the gridiron and the baseball diamond. As a result, Nike created the Air Diamond Turf, the ultimate trainer for a two-sport athlete. More than 17 years later, the Air Diamond Turf is still making its way to retailers. Today, we have a look at a returning colorway from the shoe’s original run.

This Air Diamond Turf features a black nubuck base, with white leather working overlays on the side and a strap across the midfoot. Like the original colorway that recently released, the shoe makes use of metallic gold on the strap, but switches out sport red accents for deep emerald on the Swoosh, heel tab, branding, and outsole. According to RegularOlTy, we should expect to see a release sometime soon. Via Sole Collector
