Year: 2003

Not even a leather toebox could ruin this shoe. Navy, white and grey with the Japanese-themed tongue label and striped lining makes these a now-rare Euro classic. Like part II, these Shima Shima releases were twinned with a great Air Trainer 1 and a Dunk and people weren't ready for them. Foot Locker needs to get back on the stripe lining movement for a part IV. With the Air Max Plus and recent Huarache's they've proven they've still got the ability to drop Europe-only bangers, and all they need is that Shima pattern. Alas, the mid-2000s ban on store AM1 SMUs has deaded any future FL variations using this model.
