The Nike Air Go LWP has been one of the most anticipated retros in a long time for many sneakerheads. Originally released in 1994, it has held a place near the top of many collectors’ wish lists. It could be the fact that it has Max Air in the heel and Zoom Air in the forefoot, or perhaps the fact that it’s still incredibly lightweight even by today’s standards, that makes this one such a classic.

It doesn’t hurt that it was worn on court by a couple of the most exciting players to watch throughout the mid-nineties; coincidentally, both shared the same last name. For collectors, this colorway should be an easy fit in the collection thanks to the LWP’s legend and a timeless combination of  Black, White and Varsity Red. For those looking to hoop in an iconic shoe, at just 12.9 ounces, the Air Go LWP can still run with the best of them.
