We profiled a trio of midtop releases over the summer and now with 2013 and its Year of the Snake rapidly approaching, Nike Sportswear gives some extra shine to the longer established lowtop edition. The Nike Court Borough at Wholesale Price Tour Leather takes on a mix of black suede and scale-textured leather, plus snakeskin Swooshes and heel tabs for an extra bite on the aggressive colorup. Let us know how they compare to other YOTS sneakers after you’ve seen more photos below and stick with Sneaker News for word on US availability.
Nike Sportswear’s footwear lineup is largely comprised of classic runners, basketball shoes and trainers. We’ve seen each of these classes cycle old silos in and out of the rotation while creating new styles based on their fundamental elements, and no group has been better represented than the ones derived from early ’80s b-ball models. The all-new Nike Court Borough Clearance Sale Tranxition follows in the footsteps of models like the Air Royal, Air Flytop and even the Air Force 1 with its ankle-strapped hightop cupsole design. The shoe’s curious name might be attributed to the ‘transition’ on the rear midsole that leads to some interestingly clean blocking options, and you can see the first two colorways in detail below before buying at Footaction.
Old-school Nike Tennis models are back in business: the Air Trainer 1 is enjoying a nice resurgence and even the Challenge Court is getting some love as its been reintroduced as part of the Nike SB catalog. Nike’s got another sport-specific lifestyle model on the way – the Nike Court Borough Online Shopping Tour Mid; bringing the classic vibe with the perforated upper on a no-frills Chukka build with Tennis Classic-esque foxing, the Court Tour Mid offers that Blazer-like attitude that has been such a popular vibe for decades. If you’re feeling the old-school tennis vibe to the Nike Court Tour Mid, purchase one of the three available colorways right now at Nikestore.
The Nike Court Borough UK Online is one of those models that was quite common in the mid-’00s, but has subsequently seen its frequency fall off a cliff as Nike Sportswear makes room for an unprecedented variety of retro styles. We still haven’t seen a new pair since last October, but this new variation proves NSW hasn’t entirely shelved the beloved 1987-born silhouette. The new Nike Court Force AC follows the path blazed by models like the Air Force 180 and Flight Lite, adopting a vulcanized sole for a more casual approach. Canvas on the navy and grey uppers drive the easy-wearing feel home, and you’ll find these pairs in stock now exclusively at the UK’s JD Sports.
eBay has long been the place that sneakerheads turn to in order to fill the missing gaps in their collection. The vintage offerings are especially deep, and you’ve got a pretty decent chance at picking up that pair that you couldn’t convince your parents to cop back in the day. This one is a little different, a sample version of the Nike Court Borough Outlet from 1992 that never actually hit the shelves. The alterations from the original Nike Court Force High silhouette are tangible, with a more layered construction towards the back, a heavier perforated treatment on the midsection, and an overall taller silhouette showing up on this sample. The 1992 date attached is a bit curious, perhaps suggesting a scrapped reinterpretation of the Nike Court Force High. Whatever the story is behind them, they have definitely stood the test of time and you can see in the detailed pics after the jump. Even better, they are yours for the taking courtesy of aldy.everyday on eBay.
