With each passing year, Nike succeeds in attracting modern day sneakerheads with their retro Air Jordan sneakers and the Nike releases 2015 were not different. This year, Nike not only dropped some of their most coveted models in new colorways in order to celebrate integral miles, but they also brought back some of the most sought-after sneakers from years ago. Sneakerheads are likely well-aware of Nike’s extensive and vast archive, so many of them simply look forward to comebacks from in there and many sneakers did indeed return amongst the new releases of 2015.
After its original debt back in 2004, the returning Sock Dart was one of Nike’s most hyped models in 2015, while more iterations of the silhouette are also on their way in 2016. The Air Foamposite One had received plenty of graphic treatments in the past and during 2015’s All-Star Weekend, Nike introduced a never-before-seen “Chromeposite” version, which was this year’s finest All-Star sneaker. October 21th, 2015 came and went but the Nike Mag never hit the shelves, fortunately Nike Bruin “McFly,” just like the one Marty McFly wore, did end up arriving at retailers.
2015 was also a year of celebration for sneakerheads who love the Nike Air Presto since several OG colorways made their comeback, while the model even became available on NIKEiD. Even the Nike Air Max 95 made quite a major comeback in Summer 2015 since its iconic “Greedy” and “Neon” iterations returned. Apart from numerous “remastered” versions, Nike also brought back the “Varsity Purple” edition of the Air Force 1 Hi QS from 1994. The Air Max 1 is one of Nike’s most iconic running shoes and this year it got combined with the Air Jordan 1’s “Bred” colorway. It was also about time that the Classic Air Tech Challenge III received the retro treatment this year and got released in its OG form.
By now, the sneaker community is probably quite used to the release of sneaker packs, but this year’s Nike “Class Of 97” Pack definitely had a reason to stand out. After all the Nike Air Foamposite Pro and Nike Zoom Hawk Flight versions are the same ones that appeared in He Got Game, the basketball film by Spike Lee. Thus, this sums up this year’s Nike releases 2015. While this year has reached its next, Nike will drop plenty of sneakers throughout the twelve months of 2016, so stay tuned to Sneaker1 for news and updates.
