For those that are old enough to remember Nike’s 2002 Rayguns campaign, the ‘Air Raids’ are a blast from the past. The Roswell Rayguns were a fictional ‘intergalactic’ basketball team featured in a series of commercials during the 2002 NBA playoffs. Through the years, the Rayguns theme has made sporadic appearances, and now Nike is back with a new collection which includes: the ‘Air Raid, ‘Blazer Mid,’ ‘Kyrie 7,’ and ‘Air Force 1’ classics in Raygun colorways. While all of the sneakers in this collection are nice, I chose the ‘Air Raid’ simply because of how rare they are, and if history is any indication, it could be several years before we see them again. With the price ranging from $110 to $145, they aren’t super costly either.
