Introduced some three decades ago, the Nike Killshot has garnered cult status among sneakerheads, largely due to its limited availability and lack of distribution.
But J. Crew is bringing the beloved old-school sneaker back to the masses with its Nike for J. Crew Killshot 2.
These iconic kicks are low-profile tennis sneakers with leather, suede and gum uppers, which made them one of the more popular models to pair with a suit and tie before it was cool.
The natural gum rubber sole is another signature feature, and something of a rarity for Nike, which typically favors sportier and more streamlined sneakers.
The Killshot 2 went up on jcrew.com Wednesday morning for $90, but sold out in minutes. J. Crew advises that you call or email J.Crew’s customer service to try to track down a pair in one of their stores, which will reportedly restock the coveted sneaker later this week.
And if all else fails, you can always bid on a genuine vintage pair on eBay.
