In a theoretical world, had Japanese flamethrower Hideo Nomo swapped his 90-mph fastball for an extra 20 inches tacked onto his vertical, perhaps this new colorway of his Nike Air Max NM sig would have been a good fit in this past spring's Nike Basketball "Easter Pack." This shoe features a New Green mesh base with metallic silver leather overlays and black Swoosh branding on the side panels. The Air Max equipped midsole is done in white, with green working 'eyelids' over the windows, while a black rubber outsole provides the finishing touch below.
Nomo's latest is available now at Eastbay.
