Sneakers come and sneakers go but when they return after a healthy hiatus it's always a reason for celebration. With that said our Sneaker of the Week designation this week is being used to give a hearty pre-emptive welcome back to the Nike Air Stab as it is set to return to shelves sometime in 2015.

The Nike Air Stab's name hinges on an interesting air bubble that features two icicle like pillars jutting from heel to outsole. From a design standpoint there is a lot that can be done in terms of colorblocking and if you've ever slipped your feet into a pair you'll know that they are one of the most comfortable runners of all time. Between Lunarlon, Flyknit and Flywire, technology has advanced so far at this point that we are fairly certain designers are going to be tempted to slip a few upgrades in the mix.

With their pending return slated for sometime in between January and February of 2015 it's gonna be really interesting to see what Nike does to usher them back in. We can't wait to see who's given a Nike Air Stab collaboration or what colorways they bring back in general.
