Nike Night Track Disco Retro?

Some of you have might known about Nike Night Track Disco. Created around the turn of 70s into the 80s disco era, an Nike's unorthodox ideas during its earlier years. Features a shimmering and glittery disco ball upper with a glossy red swoosh and inner lining and was made specifically for celebrities. This might be one of the earliest "Friends and Family" release that came out of Beaverton. Some print ads event featured Michael Jackson and David Hasselhoff rockin' the pair (MJ = Awesome, The Hoff = Not Really). According to what i read on the internet via SneakerNews and Tenisufki EU, a retro of this might be released in 2012. It might be cool to have a pair even though its hard to imagine rockin this for daily use or to run on this.
