Coming straight from the horse’s mouth this time, J.Crew Men’s Instagram account posted an announcement that the Killshots were being pulled from retirement and returning to stores on March 1st. Even better, for gents living in New York and LA, J.Crew is having a pre-sale event on Saturday February 25th where you can sign up for free and be one of the first to buy the shoes. You can get a free ticket here.

The Nike Killshot sneaker has grown a crazy cult following over the last few years. A classic model that originally debuted 40 years ago, head menswear designer Frank Muytjens cemented its cult status with a fashionable 2009 revival, the Killshot 2. The vintage-inspired update retains all the timeless appeal of the ’70s original. Online menswear forums like Reddit’s MaleFashionAdvice have had a love/anxiety relationship with the model because of the shoe’s incredible versatility but limited availability. People have even sold them on eBay for 2-3 times the original amount.
The Killshot features a golden gum sole, giving the low profile shoe a unique appearance without make it look flashy or out of place in your otherwise smart casual outfit.
