If you haven’t copped a pair of RT1’s for your rotation, what’s with the slacking? First dubbed the “Un-Yeezys”, the Nike RT1 High was introduced early in 2009 as an affordable second option to the Nike Air Yeezy. The RT1 features a high cut and tongue with a great retro-inspired lower-body construction – it was clearly the shoe that defined the sneaker culture design. This unreleased sample of the Nike RTI High features a mix of olive green, brown, and neon green much like the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Jedi’ from the Nike SB silver-box era. The midsole features a concrete speckling and and the toe is made of a fabric material to offset the leather upper. Of course, the volt laces and bottom sole provide the added pop and Jedi comparisons to this pair. Unfortunately, this RT1 High was not released so check out the images after the jumps and buy this deadstock size 9 sample from checkmarksthespot on eBay.
