32. Nike Omega Flame

Year: 1983

The Nike Omega Flame is the stuff of schoolyard myths in Europe. 1984's Terra Rainbow model used a similar fiery fade, but the Omega Flame was a direct descendant of an early 1980s' track spike with that garish combination of lurid Swoosh, red suede and the flaming underlay blowing minds. They weren't necessarily scarce on their release, but it feels like that appearance was fleeting. These, the Rainbow and the Aloha remain curiously unretroed, but there's a certain mythos to this model that even the internet hasn't unearthed fully.
