Nike Internationalist Mid (Royal)
Alongside the 'Infrared', 'Neon', 'Ultramarine', 'Mowabb' – just to name a few – the combination of Royal Blue and Black will go down in history as one of Nike's most compelling concoctions. If you don't instantly recognise this colourway, you should probably go home and do some research on the history of sneakers, then come back and continue reading. Here we find the famous 'Royal' colourway re-purposed for the Internationalist Mid. Panel placement aligns true with the OG AJ1 'Royal' hitting all the right marks, but where it differs, other than in silhouette of course, is through the use of suede and ripstop panelling, which for a Mid means it should minimise any unwanted material crunching down in the toe when being used. Additionally, the average price of a DS pair of AJ1 'Royals' costs more than we would want to part with, so these Internationalists coming in at $89 USD is a solid price for a consolation prize.
