UPDATE: Nike are schooling the industry on novel takes of 90s favourites with these jewelled 'University Blue' Air Max 1s. Ocean-blue laps the mudguards like waves on a white-sand beach while a petite Swoosh floats on the midsection. If you're as enticed by these gems as we are, you can secure them from Overkill when they drop on July 13.
Nike have just lifted the curtain on an Air Max 1 Jewel colourway that, when measured against the previous drops (both all-white with red or black Swooshes and Air units) is a veritable pigmentation infestation of 'University Blue.' We’re all for a bit of brightness down below; the coloured mudguard on this latest iteration is a welcome touch, and for the grubby among us who veer away from excessive use of white materials, the colour scheme is a solid alternative to the aforementioned crispy-clean iterations. The shoe features the snazzy Swoosh on the side, as well as an ice-clear outsole for a little underfoot glamour.
The Nike Air Max 1 Jewel ‘University Blue’ is set to release on July 13 through select Nike stockists, as well as online.
