Nike Air Flow

Released: 1989
Complex Says: "Subsequent to his successful release of the Nike Air Force 1, Bruce Kilgore created the Air Flow as a solution for runners who needed a breathable shoe with superior comfort. The sneaker's cushioning was inspired by a plush teddy bear and, initially, the actual stuffing from the Teddy Bear was used in the sole of an early prototype. Take that, Ruxpin!"
