Though Hideo Nomo’s career may have not panned out the way many thought it would after his Rookie of the Year winning first year in the MLB, Nomo did have a solid career overall and his arrival in the league as the first Japanese born player is credited as opening the door for more Japanese players to enter the league. Jumping on the promise and global popularity of Nomo, Nike developed their line of Air Max Nomo sneakers. Later this year, the Nike Air Max NM, the Hideo Nomos, are set to return. A definite throwback, the Air Max NM will return in the OG Red, Black, and White colorway. The look and feel of the classic 90s silhouette remains intact.
The Nike Air Max NM is set to release later this year.
