Nike Is Releasing The Air Max 1 “City Of Light” For Air Max Day 2022

Nike Air Max technology has been instrumental for the brand since debuting in 1987. To celebrate its 35th anniversary, the Swoosh has prepped a special Air Max Day 2022 lineup, which includes an iridescent Nike Air Max 1.

Previewed by Instagram user @wideawakearthquake, the newly-surfaced pair indulges in a clean ensemble. The majority of the Tinker Hatfield-designed upper and sole unit boast shades of white or off-white, though greys and navy enter the mix across the shoe. Overlays along the tongue and around the heel introduce a color-shifting detail to the original Air Max silhouette. The iridescent touch has certainly been employed for the technology’s 35th birthday, with the “3.26” date landing on the tops of both shoes’ tongues, but it also seems to celebrate Paris, the city of light. Akin to the limited-edition box they come packaged in, the sneakers feature “La Ville-Lumičre” text on the sock-liners, which speaks to the French city’s reputation of being well-lit; references to “Spring 2022” and March 26th – the date on which the Air Max 1 debuted in ’87 – are also stamped onto the insole. Lastly, the celebratory offering arrives with a series of metallic silver charms in the shape of an Air Max sneaker, swoosh logos and more.

No firm Nike SNKRS release date has been disclosed by the brand, but that’s likely to change in the coming weeks. In the meantime, enjoy an early-look at the Air Max Day 2022 Air Max 1 ahead.

Where To Buy The Air Jordan 6 “UNC”

March 2022 kicks off with one of the year’s most anticipated sneakers, arriving right as the frenzy around college basketball begins to brew. That would be the Air Jordan 6 “UNC”, a sneaker that continues a storied series of University Blue Jordans that have taken the world by storm over the last few years.

As the next installment of Jordan Brand’s college PE-themed collection, this Air Jordan 6 features the high-contrast blocking of white and university blue, the AJ7’s tribal pattern on the tongue and interior lining, and the Team Jordan uniform patch stitched onto the exterior of the heel. Previous Jordan Retro releases in this style have included the Air Jordan 3, 4, and 5 for UNC, Oregon, Georgetown, and Michigan, so hopefully we’ll see these other schools receive their own unique AJ6 as well.

The Air Jordan 6 “UNC” officially releases at Jordan Brand retailers and SNKRS on March 5th, 2022 for $210; see the official store list below and enter as many raffles as you can to secure a pair at retail.

Where To Buy The Air Jordan 4 Golf “Military Blue”

Long rumored to be next in line in Jordan Brand’s spirited re-issue of the original Air Jordan 4 colorways, the famed “Military Blue” is set to arrive much sooner than you think. However, the Jumpman label is opting for the ever popular Golf edition as this ’89 classic with Nike Air branding will be fitted link-ready with a spiked outsole. Speaking directly to the matured Jordan fanatic that may have transitioned from basketball to the much less intense game of golf, this Air Jordan 4 is indeed a near-perfect replica of the silhouette that many have clamored for since it last appeared in 2012.

Releasing on September 3rd at select Jordan retailers overseas and on September 7th on Nike.com, the Air Jordan 4 Golf “Military Blue” only hints further at a true retro drop (possibly in 2022). With the other three OG Air Jordan 4 colorways already seeing the light of day in its proper Nike Air branded look, it’s only a matter of time before this fourth and final gets the respect its due.

More Air Jordan 4 Golf Shoes Are Releasing Soon

It turns out March’s “White Cement” Air Jordan 4 Golf isn’t the only colorway of the performance golf shoe that Jordan Brand has planned for this year. Next up on the launch calendar is a trio of styles arriving next month.

While this set pictured here is connected together by its release timeframe, each colorway embodies a different color scheme and theme. According to the brand, the first “Seersucker” makeup draws inspiration from one of Michael Jordan’s suits boasting a striped design on the upper. The “Green Metallic” iteration takes direct inspiration from last year’s “Metallic” Jordan 4 release. Rounding out the pack is the “Teal Purple” colorway, which references oceanside hues and the ripstop nylon material featured on Jordan Flight Suits.

Kicking off this set of Jordan 4 Golf drops will be the “Green Metallic” pair hitting the Nike App starting June 2 and on Nike.com and select retailers starting on June 4. The “Teal Purple” will arrive on the Nike App starting June 16 and at Nike.com and select retailers starting June 18. A release date for the “Seersucker” colorway has not been announced.





The BIGGEST Problem With Jordan 1s

The Jordan 1 has been one of the most iconic models that Nike has released ever since. Popularized by Michael Jordan himself, many people wanted to get their hands on the shoe due to their desires to play and jump as high as the Chicago Bulls legend. However, J1s found itself going beyond the hardwood as the sneaker quickly became a part of American pop culture and a celebrated piece in streetwear today.

Since its release in April 1985, the Jordan 1 model has stood the test of time as it still remains to be a highly coveted shoe many decades later. In an interview with Dillon, the owner of a newly-opened sneaker store in San Diego named Off The Bench, he thinks that Nike has been mixing it up too much that it lessens the appreciation that people have for the model.

Certainly enough, Jordan 1s will always be remembered for its famed Chicago, UNC, and Royal Blue colorways. However, as Dillion mentioned, the brand eventually rolled the sneaker in newer color combinations like the Retro Japan Pack, XQ, Hare, and Shattered Backboard.

The J1 model was also released in limited edition collaborations with labels like Off-White, Levi’s, Fragment, and Quai 54. Partnerships with popular icons such as skateboarder Lance Mountain, stylist Aleali May, and rapper Travis Scott also graced the famed Jordan silhouette in recent years.
