How to make a Better Nike Aina Chukka: Burgandy Leather

26 Sep

In my opinion, these Nike Aina Chukkas could have turned out a bit better if they didn’t use a royal blue color for the midsole/sole. Burgandy and black certainly do not compliment royal blue. Sure, color combination mishaps aren’t uncommon for Nike, but these shoes would have been great if they had a darker color or beige/tan at the midsole.
These stand-out in a bad way. They catch people’s attention at first glance but then are criticized for their ugly color scheme.

Why Nike? You ruined a good thing.

Nike Air Diamond Fury, Ken Griffey Jr.

2 Jul

During the 1995 baseball season, Ken Griffey Jr., Derek Jeter, and several other premier Nike athletes wore the Nike Air Diamond Fury in the big leagues. but Griffey was given a special colorway complete with his number stitched to the side and a signature “JR” logo on the tongue. These were made for the games, but i don’t think Nike would mind seeing them on the streets either.
