duck season

anyone remembers the Nike Air Flow from back in the days? the year was 1989
and Nike was on top of the game with their running shoes. the Air Flow was ultra
lightweight due to its nylon/ lycra sock like upper. you can see some design
influences that were taken from the '89 Pegasus (although it was originally
released 1988), and it was the precursor of the Presto that would come 10 years
later. now the Flow is back..
Nike took its Lunar sole and put a Fuse upper on it that looks like the Flow. release
is set for summer 2011, i'll get the black one for sure!
