Nike Air Veer “Red October”

“The Hunt for Red October,” a popular 1984 novel by Tom Clancy, tells the fictional story of a submarine captain in the Soviet Navy who defects to the United States. Not only does Captain Ramius escape to the United States, but he steals a revolutionary, submarine vessel that makes sonar detection nearly impossible. The vessel, “Red October,” was a crucial component in the plans to initiate a nuclear attack against the United States because of its ability to avoid detection in US waters (Thankfully he stole it!). That being said, it’s pretty ironic that the Nike Air Veer “Red October” is one of the most noticeable shoes on the planet. I mean its loud! The University Red screams at you. It demands your attention and time to reflect on its bold features. The only other shoes we can think of that required so much attention are the Nike Air Yeezy II “Red October” and the Air Jordan 4 “Toro Bravo,” and we still think these Veers take the cake. UBIQ will have the Nike Air Veer “Red October” this Saturday, in-store, for $120.


In addition to the irony of the “Red October” name, it also happens to be October and the Fall season is ushering in. Start Fall off on the bright side with this university red and black colorway. The Nike Air Veer has a smooth nubuck construction accompanied by black leather, mid-foot straps and a patented Nike swoosh. Tonal laces bring the whole shoe together and Nike Air  provides the comfort for this classic trainer. Whether this shoe is for you or not, you have to agree its a show stopper. Wearing the Nike Air Veer “Red October” will certainly turn heads, stopping haters in their tracks. Granted they’ll most likely hate more, but hey…let um!

The Nike Air Veer “Red October” will be available in-store at UBIQ Walnut for $120.
