Sometimes, it’s the unexpected colourways that make for the hottest releases. This time last year, nobody would have even imagined how hot the Nike Air Griffey Max 1 in marina blue and cool grey turned out to be. We’ve seen plenty of Griffeys with teal accents, but that particular combination is just magical.
Such is the case with the latest Air Jordan 1 Phat hightop. These thick-tongued AJ1s certainly aren’t the first Jays to mix white, black and yellow (Thunder/Lightning, anyone?), but the way it’s done on this pair is straight up masterful. You’ve got a white overlay atop a grey base to ensure they don’t overtake your outfit, but the yellow laces and stitching look excellent with the simple base. Expect these to hit Jordan Brand retailers soon, as they’re available from Dunk.com.cn.
