UPDATE: Put it in your calendars, AM1 devotees; Nike's Air Max 1 Jewel in timeless black and white (along with 'University Blue') will drop at Nike+, SNKRS, Nike Online and select retailers on July 13.
After touching on a beloved Air Max colourway with the ‘University Blue’, Nike’s Jewel line has added these AM1s to its roster. The prestigious colourways are important, but to prove its mettle, a shoe needs to be able to rock the time-honoured binary of white and black. This one rocks with ease, with blank uppers, mudguards slicked with jet black, and the jewelled Swoosh small but gleaming as the sneaker’s centrepiece.
A diamond forms over several million years – but if you're short on time and patience, these jewels are dropping way sooner. The Nike Air Max 1 Jewel in ‘White/Black’ is will hit retailers in the coming weeks.
