The Nike collection released yet another showstopper, the Air Max. But before you start musing on this latest baby, look back at the ones many of us still cannot recover from.
Air Jordan XX
Air Jordan XX is an absolute game-changer with its unmistakable laser etching and its outsole cushioning. Jordan brand released the “Laser” pack for the Jumpman’s 30th anniversary as well as the commemoration of the All-Star festivities.
Air Jordan 1
It wasn’t long ago when Nike signed up Michael Jordan as its endorser. The next year, in 1985, from the deft hands of designer Peter Moore, Air Jordan 1 was first released. Today, the Jordan series celebrates this seminal sneaker silhouette with a laser-etched version, paying homage to the icon and his brand’s history. Remaining faithful to its original version with remastered premium materials and details, the Air Jordan 1 Laser is built on a premium white leather base, laser-engraved with popular icons and abstract shapes to commemorate the last 30 years of Michael Jordan and his shoes.
Air Jordan 1 Retro
The signature Air Jordan 1 Retro, says 5Pointz.co.uk, gets the low profile treatment with a classic red and black upper, vintage sail on the midsole and OG Nike Air logo on tongue. The remastered low silhouette keeps its classic look with the signature Wings logo on the heel, while keeping the quality perfect.
From the Mowabb lineage, Air Revaderchi has integrated toe for protection, ankle wrapping strap lacing, mountain bike inspired rubber sole, and concealed plate to rock-proof the foot. This led to a weird foot-conforming form with a Huarache neoprene fit.
They say Air Rhyolite’s short-lived greatness is thanks to the characteristically brutal-looking design from ACG. The single-piece waterproof leather upper is weatherproof while the Cambrelle lining provides moisture wicking during hikes. The PU midsole is the attraction here, with the forefoot flex grooves and steel shank inside.
Nike, its affiliate brands and series just won’t stop at anything to be the best brand we’ll all grow up liking. Luckily for us, many of these collectibles are still on the rack.
