When going down the list of the most dominant sports teams in history, the Houston Comets squad from 1997-2000 deserves their place on the list. The WNBA franchise created one of the leagueâ€™s first-ever dynasties with his â€œBig 3â€ in Sheryl Swoopes, Tina Thompson and Cynthia Cooper and won four consecutive championships. And so to honor this historical achievement, Nike has put together a special Air Force 1 Low â€œHouston Comets Four-Peatâ€ colorway and revealed it by way of official imagery.
The most enticing features of this hoops-inspired pair arrive towards the rear. A four-fingered hand icon next to an â€œxâ€ sign is embroidered into the lateral heel while the traditional Nike rear insignias are substituted out for â€œâ€˜97 â€˜98â€ on the left shoe and â€œâ€˜99 â€˜00â€ on the right side to call out the seasons the Comets were world champs. The teamâ€™s patriotic hues are used for accents across its predominantly white base by touching down on the Swooshes and heel overlays. Standard metallic silver â€œAF1â€ lace deubres are situated on the bottom of the throat, while the outsoles and midsole â€œAirâ€ hits are doused in full navy.
Nike and select retailers will likely launch these in the coming months.
