Nike’s Mini Swoosh is the Bread and Butter of this Drop
Look at that subtle red coloring. The tasteful thickness of it. Oh my God, it even has a watermark…
Nike continues to earn kudos with their limited edition releases, but don’t sleep on the low key drops from the swoosh. The brand has slowly but surely reintroduced a staple of the Air Max series in the form of the mini swoosh to Air Max 1, a throwback to the golden days of the Air Max 1s The Mini Swoosh was first introduced in 1997 and was discarded in the early 2000s after a run of unforgettable releases: The Atmos’ Safari & Viotech models, and Patta’s Chlorophyll amongst others. With a recent renaissance in form of limited edition releases, namely the Air Max 1 ‘Master’, 97/1 Wotherspoon and recent Parra drops, Nike has begun slowly to reintroduce their minimalist branding to the Air Max 1, and in this pack too the recently reissued Nike Air Span II, to great effect.
The Special Edition Air Max 1 & Spann II come constructed with a premium touch of suede, canvas and leather in a black complexion. The accents of red to the branding and sole gift the pairs colourways associated with Jordan Brand’s premium drops of the numerical Jordan series, the ‘Bred’ colourway featuring heavily on a plethora of retro Jordan’s limited edition retros. This is a colourway that finds itself attached to Nike silhouettes sparingly, adding further prestige to this pack.
Both respective models find themselves constructed to their legendary OG standard, with minimal editions of branding providing the necessary twist to this special edition pack.
The Nike Air Max 1 & Air Span II ‘Mini Swoosh’ will be available both in-store and online on the 10th August at 8 am from Aphrodite Clothing. Numbers are limited, so grab your pair while you can.
