Particularly iconic at the collegiate level during the 80s, the Big Nike hoop shoe has been transformed into a lifestyle silhouette with the use of a vulcanized sole. Originally a hit on the European market, the the Big Nike AC has also found success stateside in its short stay. Now, two colorways have been created exclusively for Foot Locker Stores to drop this month.
The Black/Red/White colorway features a white swoosh with red accents on the tongue, heel branding and midsole. Additionally, there's a black on black look that offsets different parts of the shoe by using a variety of materials. Details include a patent leather Swoosh, gingham collar and stylized ankle padding. The tongue is also completely done in patent leather, opposed to the nylon tongue used on the Black/Red/White pair.
These Big Nike AC colorways are exclusively available at Foot Locker stores for $80.
