At a glance, the silhouette seems unchanged, its shape deceptively similar to the GRs currently on the shelves. But, upon closer inspection, there lies noticeable differences in stitch and even choice of material. The latter, which owes a robust leather for its premium effect, reveals its quality at each panels’ edge as the natural tone of the fabrication’s grain shines through much like Union’s take on the Air Jordan 1 in 2018. Alongside, metallic dubraes accessorize at the vamp, matching that of the Swoosh and heel tab whose finish bears a metallic silver coating. Moreover, the mid-panel is threaded overtop multiple times in a formation identical to the 1982 blueprint, while the rear’s “NIKE AIR” is degraded in overt mimicry of well-aged pairs.
