While the Nike Air Mission might not have the name of a famous player attached to it like some of Deion Sanders’ Diamond Turf retros, the iconic trainer will always be remembered as the shoes that Junior Seau wore during his days as a San Diego Charger. Although for many fans, the Junior Seau and Dennis Hopper commercial helped make the Nike Air Mission famous.
This trainer was a shoe worn throughout the NFL during the 1994 football season. In addition to its on-field popularity, the Nike Air Mission also was an undercover star on the big screen thanks to Will Smith’s character, Mike Lowrey, in the movie Bad Boys.
Nike has taken the former star from the gridiron and big screen and given it a modern day makeover. The Nike Air Mission receives the always popular combination of Black and Volt. The Air Mission’s upper is wrapped in black, while the outsole and inner lining get the Volt treatment. The unique details that make the Air Mission a classic, like the heel tab and midfoot strap, are also in the popular yellow-green hue.
