This Nike Vandal 2K features a Particle Beige upper in a shiny textile finish atop its signature double-stacked cup sole in Sail. A midfoot strap with hints of Mint on the branding areas and rubber outsole completes the design.
Dropping a high top basketball shoe, only available in canvas or nylon, sporting a standard sole unit, into the middle of the 80s tech revolution wouldn't have seemed like the recipe to set the world on fire, but the Nike Vandal achieved legend status on the back of its head turning looks. The original Vandal became instantly, massively popular thanks to the bold design, particularly the famous combination of metallic silver with red, white, and blue accenting, that lived up to the shoe's aggressive billing. A well-placed cameo in The Terminator sealed the deal.
