Nike bringing back David Robinson’s shoes


David Robinson Air Max Strong 2A lot of us are too young to remember, but in the early 90's, Nike had a pretty good ad campaign running with San Antonio Spurs great David Robinson.  Mister Robinson's Neighborhood was one of Nike's cleverest campaigns.  Nike's relationship with Robinson through the 90's, including when they debuted their Air Max line of shoe.  Now, Nike is bring back their Nike Air Max 2 Strong shoe, which Robinson wore in the mid-90's.

According to Nice, the Nike Air Max 2 Strong "Grape" is set the hit stores March 9th.  While it isn't either of the colorways Robinson wore, but the Grape colorway wouldn't look that bad if you have an old Spurs jacket or shirt with the Fiesta themed colors.  By the way, if you have ankle issues, this is the shoe for you.  Look how high up that shoe wraps around your foot and ankle.  It may as well be a boot.  If you're going to cop these, be ready to cough up quite a bit. 

The Nike Air Max Strong 2 "Grape" has a price tag of $150, which is actually kinda low compared to the latest LeBron's or Jordan's, which have price tags of close to and just over $200.
