Forgotten gems: Nike Duellist PR — made in Republic of Korea, 1989

Let’s have a trip back to 1989. Runners World magazine described Nike Duellist PR ‘Personal Record’ as one of the most responsive racing shoes ever made. Plus, it’s crazy how you could pick up a lightweight solid looking shoe for just 55$ —  back in 1989!

The pictured pair is a Nike Duellist PR and was specially designed for racing/running. The racing flat form from the end of that decade was something new. Nike has beefed up the forefoot by adding a little more Phylon (EVA), which improved the cushioning. The sneaker is dressed in mesh, synthetics and faux leather, in a specific late ’80s/early ’90s crazy colorway paneling —  white/black/citrus.

While you’re still here, don’t forget to scroll down for a closer look and keep an eye on Hello There Vintage shop for some rare vintage sneakers.

It’s shoes like this that set Nike apart from others, won’t you say?
