The 80 Greatest Sneakers of the '80s

55. Nike Vandal

Year Released: 1984

When the Vandal hit the scene in 1984, the variable canvas and nylon uppers were the main selling point. For style, a velcro strap across the top—evocative of the AF1 Hi—added points. The strap gave it distinction from the similar silhouettes seen on the Legend and Dynasty (not to mention Dunk). A further disguising point was the original silver nylon used on the Vandal Supreme. This deluxe version of the shoe had a space age quality… in fact, there was the same look as a NASA spacesuit.
