Nike Ghost Racer
Black/Black-Dark Grey AT5410-002
Nike hasn’t been shy about reissuing their running models from the 1990s, even if it is, by comparison, an obscure pure-performance marathon shoe like the Air Ghost Racer. Designed by the legendary Steven Smith, this long-distance runner was renowned for its marathon-ready fit and appealing price-point – quite the rare combination considering the running shoe boom that saw prices reach some insanely high prices. Now intended to be a lifestyle option given the growing popularity and awareness of mesh/leather/suede/synthetic builds like the Vomero and the Zoom Streak Spectrum, the Ghost Racer has returned at an opportune juncture as the 20th century’s final decade continues to be a steady trend in footwear.
