Oh, you thought the Nike Air Max 1 FB “Blue Leopard” was the only animal pair in the works from the Futbol-inspired Nike Air Max 1 pack? That’s not the case, as the same style will also be dressing up in an orange leopard look, as previewed here. The sneaker again dons suede for the upper, letting the leopard spots dot the nappy texture across this beloved Tinker Hatfield silhouette. See more on the Nike Air Max 1 FB “Orange Leopard” right after the jump and let us know how these compare to the other buzzed-about Nike Air Max 1 FB releases we’ve seen in 2013.

@KidBobot: if it says "FB" it means that the colors are based off of a previously produced soccer (aka futbol) cleat.
@KidBobot futbol after the roshe run fbs, which have a swoosh on the toe inspired by most of nike's cleats
@clams @KidBobot how are these inspired by the roshe fb when there is nothing about them that resembles the roshe? on top of that they didn't even put a swoosh on the front like the FB roshe. Its weird cuz the patta chlorophyll ones that came out a while back had a tin swoosh on the toe so did the viotech. but for these which are supposed to be modeled after the roshe don't haven anything to connect the 2
The FB does stand for football but the actual shoe that the Roshe Mint and AM1 is based on is the nike elastico finale 2 soccer shoe. Look it up see for yourself.
