After a lackluster return for the Air Base II earlier this year in original colorways (how are you going to retro them and not put the "Air Base II" text at the heel like the OGs?), the slightly obscure Nike runner is ready to take off again this fall in a modern and more eye-catching look of 'Challenge Red/Laser Orange'. 

With a combination of synthetic nubuck and ripstop nylon, this latest Air Base II receives a very warm look in Challenge Red with accents in Laser Orange, black, and burgundy around the heel.  Striped laces complete the updated look. 

There is no official word yet on a release date, but take a preview of the latest Air Base compliments of Sneaker Freaker and expect them at select Nike Sportswear retailers later this fall.
