Nike Air Max 1 Premium SC Jewel “Dusty Peach”

You know the saying SBB quality leather?

Well, all of the Premium SC Jewel Air Max 1’s we have in our collection are as close to it as you can get. Describing it as soft and supple almost feels like you are underselling it. Alright, alright, it isn’t quite SBB quality but for an Air Max 1 they certainly went all in on the materials for all of the Jewel releases.

The Jewel series of releases were first released in the late 90’s on the Air Force Ones, Cortez and Air Max 1 models. 20 years later the gem-stone Swoosh bearing beauties were given a new life with this all new Dusty Peach colorway.

Is it just us or does Nike really enjoy the 20-year mark for sneakers?

This Dusty Peach colorway reminds us of the burnt red/brown leather you see on German luxury sedans nowadays. It just screams quality and looks astonishing while doing it. If you do not have a Premium SC Air Max 1 in your line up, we would highly suggest correcting that. An Air Max 1 is timeless, a premium leather Air Max 1 is timeless and luxurious.

It may surprise you as it did us.You can still find some of the OG colorways from this re-release at the Nike Factory stores. Not sure this colorway will make it that far but be sure to keep an eye out and as always… Happy Hunting!

Nike Air Max 97 Country Camo Pack

Air Max 97 “Country Camo” – USA

 

2017 was a huge year for the Nike Air Max 97. The silhouette celebrated its 20th birthday, dropped some amazing collaborations like Virgil Abloh’s The Ten, the clean Undefeated Pack, and to end it all off Nike drops a throwback to the Country Camo Pack released back in 2013.

This pack was region specific and featured 6 military themed colorways representing the countries of the United Kingdom, Japan, Italy, Germany, France and the USA. Each decked out in their own camouflage and complete with a removable flag patch on the tongue for the perfect touch of patriotism.

Nike made sure the details were taken care of on these bad boys from the quality of the leather and canvas to the seamless stitching across the entire upper. As we live in North America we were only able to get our hands on a pair of the USA release so if you have some of the others be sure to tag us with #flatlaced on Instagram so we can check them out.

Although it was not one of the most sought-after Air Max 97 releases of 2017, can you really blame it?

The 97 had the royalty treatment last year in our eyes and we would definitely put this pack quietly up there as the third best release for this iconic silhouette and the perfect way to close out it’s anniversary year.

Clearly Air Max 97 fans were in sneaker heaven in 2017 and the trend hasn’t slowed in 2018 with the recent release of the Sean Wotherspoon’s. So, you know what that means…another year of HAPPY HUNTING!
