We here at Sole Collector are fans of many of the quirky, forgotten sneakers of the past. The Nike Air NDESTRUKT from 1995 definitely fits into that category. Like a cult classic movie, the Air NDESTRUKT is one of those shoes that didn't get a lot of attention when it originally released, but is now celebrated by a select few -- still flying under the mainstream's radar. Among 1995's blockbuster kicks like the Air Jordan XI, Nike Air Penny and Reebok Kamikaze II, the Air NDESTRUKT is easy to overlook, but - at least in this writer's opinion - just as cool.
So let's go back to 1995 to this obscure European Nike commercial and check out the Air NDESTRUKT in action doing what it was designed for: taking a beating on the outdoor court.
