Heavy “London” Allusions Land On The Nike Field General 82

There’s a well-established Nike playbook for bringing retro models back. The Beaverton company often reaches into its deep bag of collaborators for to launch given silhouettes before bringing them back into the mainline for general release. The Nike Field General ’82 is already bucking trends in that regard. We’re still awaiting the Union Field General, no doubt the most hotly-anticipated edition of the shoe all year, and instead, widely available propositions like the upcoming Nike Field General ’82 “London” are reintroducing the 80s gridiron shoe.

This colorway offers a full embrace of earthy tonality, beginning with the shaggy tan suede on the topmost overlays. Working inwards, deep brown is up next. A few of the sections that bear that hue inject color simultaneously, with the laces and heel tag working in vibrant yellow accents in the process. Finally, cream mesh sets up the foundation, completing the lifestyle blend of textile, suede and leather that makes the Field General so appealing for everyday wear. While geographical ties are prevalent on this shoe (a “LDN” tag on the medial side of either shoe as well coordinates and “birds chirping” text on the insoles), without closer looks we can’t be sure the exact meaning just yet.

The Nike Field General ’82 “London” is expected to drop for the Summer/Fall slate in women’s sizing. While pricing info isn’t concrete, past drops have commanded an accessible $100 MSRP. Catch a closer look via retail images included just below.
