The Air Jordan 1 Centre Court ‘University Gold’ delivers a modern, low-profile interpretation of the iconic sneaker that started it all. White leather is utilized on the upper, accented with an exploded wings logo on the heel and a wraparound yellow stripe that recalls the black and red Air Jordan 1 ‘Couture’ from 2019. Like the original AJ1, the midsole houses an encapsulated Nike Air unit in the heel. It’s supplemented by a Zoom Air unit nestled in the heel of the sockliner, resulting in a double layer of lightweight cushioning.
The Nike women’s Air Max Genome ‘White Bright Mango’ highlights vibrant pops of color on a lifestyle runner inspired by an early 2000s aesthetic and built with at least 20% recycled materials by weight. The upper combines breathable mesh with lightweight synthetic overlays and a semi-translucent TPU heel counter. Coral and pink accents up top are repeated on the sneaker’s tooling, featuring a low-profile Nike Air unit that runs the length of the durable rubber outsole.
The 2021 edition of the Nike Air More Uptempo TD ‘White Varsity Red’ delivers a scaled-down version of an early 2000s colorway alternately known as the ‘Renowned Rhythm.’ Like the original, the leather upper is dominated by oversized ‘Air’ lettering outlined in red. Pull tabs at the tongue and heel combine with no-tie elastic laces for easy on and off. The foam midsole houses an encapsulated Air pod under the heel that provides lightweight cushioning for little feet.
The 2021 edition of the Nike Dunk Low ‘Michigan’ offers a low-top interpretation of one of the silhouette’s original ‘Be True to Your School’ colorways, first released in 1985 and previously retroed in 2020. The all-leather upper is finished in a rich Varsity Maize hue with contrasting Midnight Navy hits on the Swoosh and forefoot and heel overlay. Padded comfort is provided by a low-cut collar and breathable nylon tongue, featuring a woven tag with traditional Nike branding.
The Nike women’s Dunk Low ‘Green Glow’ showcases traditional color blocking on a customary all-leather build. A crisp white base is contrasted by a vibrant shade of green on the sneaker’s eyestay, Swoosh, and forefoot and heel overlays. The verdant hue is repeated on the woven tongue tag and heel tab, both marked with standard Nike branding. The low-top rides on a two-tone rubber cupsole, equipped with a grippy outsole originally designed for pivoting on the hardwood.
The Nike Dunk Low ‘Michigan State’ delivers a low-top version of the Michigan State Dunk from 2020. Like its predecessor, the shoe features a two-tone all-leather upper rendered in classic ‘Be True to Your School’ color blocking. A stark white finish is contrasted by a dark green Swoosh and matching overlays at the toe and heel. Standard Nike branding hits decorate the heel and nylon tongue. The low-top is mounted on a durable rubber outsole, complete with a traction pattern originally developed for the hardwood.
The 2021 reissue of the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 ‘Varsity Royal’ celebrates the 25th anniversary of Ken Griffey Jr.’s debut signature shoe. The retro mid-top sports a powder blue nubuck upper with a white leather inlay decorated with a stitched black Swoosh. An adjustable ankle strap displays an embossed Nike wordmark and Junior’s jersey number with the Seattle Mariners. Visible Max Air units enhance a polyurethane midsole, supported underfoot by a waffle-traction rubber outsole.
Launching as part of the brand’s sprawling 26-part A-ZX series, the Sean Wotherspoon x adidas ZX 8000 ‘Super Earth’ delivers the Round Two founder’s eye-catching interpretation of the classic running shoe. A patchwork-like mix of different textiles makes up the composition of the upper, ranging from pastel plaid to rustic canvas. The sneaker’s medial side is sprinkled with multicolor embroidered Trefoils, while the opposite side features embroidered florals with cascading runoff threads. Super Earth branding adorns the tongue and heel, the latter reinforced with a transparent heel counter.
