Originally released in 1979, the Nike Killshot was a performance silhouette suited to tennis and squash courts. Now it’s a re-invention of the classic withstanding a foray into contemporary menswear and shifting from its sport-like status.
Characterised as an athletic shoe of the ‘70s, the Killshot made a return in 2009 with new fabrication, made from a leather upper with suede overlays throughout. Earlier versions showcased a mesh upper, making it more comfortable during activity.
The Killshot may not be recognised as most-sought after Nike sneakers of recent times but it provides a sure easy-wearing offering, suitable for almost any outfit, much like its counterpart the Air Force 1 – popular because they go with anything and everything.
The newest selection of Nike Killshot’s are presented in a variety of three colourways. This time, an embodiment of the ‘70’s classic court sneaker, the new Killshot is constructed with an upper comprised of mesh panelling, suede overlays and a foam tongue tab for extra comfort. The sneaker is finalised with an all-white sole unit and signature swoosh branding, playing on timeless retro design hues.
