Nike Air Max Speed Turf: Old-school trainer gets new style
An old-school trainer that never went out of style, the Nike Air Max Speed Turf came out of retirement to bring life to one’s inner football player.
When football met retro-inspired looks, this Nike sneaker was a modern take on a classic cleat silhouette. These kicks were made famous by NFL greats such as Dan Marino and Deion Sanders, both of whom wanted style and substance while on the field during the early 1990s. Originally turf shoes and cleats, the Air Max Speed Turf also had a spectrum of clean colors from which to choose.
One of the trainers that changed the game, this sneaker was built with nubuck, a top-grain cattle leather, and mesh, which provided ventilation and lasting durability. It featured a 3M reflective upper, guaranteed to catch someone’s eye. The retro edition of the classic Air Max Speed Turf of the ’90s was released in August 2012.
The sneaker featured a colored Air-Sole unit, which lent comfort for the user. A full strap closure over the lace panel gave protection and support. With a midfoot strap and Max Air unit, the Air Max Speed Turf provided performance and impact protection in a high-top profile. Wearers could take this trainer from the field to the gym and everywhere in between.
