The entire shoe box is presented inside out with the traditional orange on the inside. “Swoosh” branding is on top with a callout to the Beaverton, Oregon on the side. The Nike VaporMax will undoubtedly be one of the more sought after pairs of this collaboration given its newness and timely reworking with a vintage tongue paying tribute to retro models. You can see more of the inside-out-packaging via the OFF WHITE Air Jordan 1 unboxing video as well.Be sure to check out the entire OFF WHITE x Nike Price Guide and we’ll update you on more previews of the coming collaboration with Virgil Abloh and Nike Sportswear right here on Sneaker News.Jordan Brand rarely pays tribute to Michael Jordan’s short stint with the Washington Wizards, but that looks to be changing with the return of the last shoe that Mike ever played in: the Jordan 18 come January 2018. The original Royal colorway featuring a ‘Home’ motif thanks to premium white leather will be the first option as the sleek overlay shroud and lacing system was said to be inspired by Italian-crafted dress shoes and race cars – recurring motifs in the Jordan signature series.
Tate Kuerbis designed the Jordan 18 back in 2003 with a unique hidden lacing system and carbon fiber throughout for a supportive ride. The Jordan 18 released at $175 USD all the way back in 2003 and featured a unique slide out box and a towel and brush combination (given how easily the pair scuffed). There was also a nice Jordan 18 ‘Driver’s Manual’ pamphlet included which we hope to see with the coming retro.The 30th-anniversary celebration for the Nike Air Max 1 might have brought more original colorways at the front end of this year, but Nike Sportswear continues to revamp Tinker Hatfield’s iconic running model in a number of new and exciting ways. The first shoe to ever feature visible air in the midsole has since gone the premium lifestyle route with a number of memorable Nike Air Max 1 Premium offerings like the “Dark Stucco” and“Ridgerock” options, both formidable tonal choices that elevate the Air Max 1 to casual aesthetics perfect for the coming Fall 2017 season.
Today we get a look at the coming Nike Air Max 1 Premium Navy/Gum combination. The pair features a smooth Midnight Navy leather upper with Pure Platinum accents on him midfoot, while a denim-esque woven base features unique square patterns for a look we’ve never seen before on Tinker’s iconic model. Of course, some Gum outsoles add the perfect casual touch to a pair we can’t wait to get our hands on. Expect this Nike Air Max 1 to release in September alongside the coming Nike Air Max 1 “Skulls”.
