Originally released back in 2002, the Jordan Nu Retro 1 was brought out of the archive late last year in honor of the sneaker’s 20th Anniversary. And after celebrating not one but two iconic colorways — namely, the “Bred” and “Royal” — the silhouette is now ostensibly paying its respects to another beloved duo: the “Thunder” and “Lightning.”

Despite drawing from different influences, the Jordan Nu Retro 1 “Varsity Maize” echoes the color blocking of its above-mentioned predecessors, applying “Varsity Maize” exclusively to the toe, heel, and sole unit. Elsewhere, the rest of the shoe is near identical to these prior appearances, with white-painted, Wings-branded overlays affixed atop a base predominantly clad in black.

Enjoy a closer look at the Jordan Nu Retro 1 “Varsity Maize” via the official images ahead. Currently, a release date has not yet been revealed; for now, sit tight and stay tuned for future updates.

In other news, official images of the Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low Olive have surfaced.
