Any sneakerhead worth his salt is by now familiar with the original Nike Air Max 95 and its signature white-grey-black gradient, but have you noticed some of the other more popular blocking patterns in recent months? You still get plenty of reverse grey-dients and the occasional totally novel approach, but one pattern that’s become more popular is applying a tonal look with a single tier adding some kind of one-degree contrast. It can be a darker suede hue on one tier as was the case with the ‘Shades of Brown’ edition, or a sharp change in gloss as is the case with this new Obsidian release. They’re blocked just like the black/Iguana joints that, just like this pair, are exclusive to England’s JD Sports.
