Deion Sanders made a lot of things popular in his hey-day. There was gold jewelry, showboating on the field and of course, there was the dancing. Lots of dancing. Another thing Deion put his mark on was the cross trainer sneaker category. The Nike Air Diamond Turf first released in 1993 and retroed once again a few years ago, but now it’s back for 2010, though it’s coming without Deion’s name on it.
Prime Time is now with Under Armour, so his branding has been replaced with “Diamond Turf 2010” on the tongue and “Nike” on the heel pull loop. Elsewhere, black suede and white leather combine on the upper. A Sport Red liner matches the Swoosh on the midfoot strap and the branding throughout, while a bit of gold helps along the sides. Do you plan to grab a pair in June, despite the missing Deion labels?
