Prior to the COVID-19 crisis putting a halt on global events, Nike had a series of plans on the ledger set for Tokyo. In celebration of the Olympic Games, several sneaker releases were set to coincide with the quadrennial extravaganza such as the Air Jordan 3 “Japan” and more. This “Hidden Message” Pack by Nike Sportswear was likely one of those as the color palette is clearly connected to the Olympic Rings, but Games or not – these will still be yours for the taking.
Featured in this capsule are three icons at the forefront of street sensibility and everlasting trends – the Air Max 95, the Air Force 1, and the Air Max 2090. The Air Max 95 revisits 2004’s “Olympic” colorway, reversing the arrangement of colors on the gradient while adding a translucent black outsole. The Air Force 1 also reaches way back to 2004 and revives the Air Force 1 “Olympic” in its exact colorway. Finally, the Air Max 2090 applies the familiar colors in select panels beneath the transparent black upper.
However, the “Hidden Message” Pack comes with a twist. Each of the three inclusions feature a hidden later comprised of gold, silver and bronze, revealed at the will of the wearer. However, the Air Max 95 remains a mystery as each pair features its own unique arrangement of the metallic colors, offering a true 1-of-1 customizable look.
The Nike Sportswear “Hidden Message” Pack releases on August 29th exclusively at BAIT Japan online and at their two chapters in Shibuya and Parco. The entire pack will release at other Nike retailers globally at a later date.
