The big comeback of the Nike Air Max 1 SC Jewel is definitely one of the bigger surprises when it comes to the Air Max 1. After years of relative “quiet”, Nike brought the iconic Air Max 1 silhouette back to the top with the “Jewels” and several other decent releases. Now they unveiled another great colorway of a “Jewel” that brings back the nostalgia of the time around the turn of the millennium.
The upcoming Air Max 1 SC Jewel “White/University Blue” is clearly inspired by the early 90s Air Max 1 vibes. Back in the days, Nike matched the color of the “Jewel” swoosh with the mudguard and the heel logo – so guess what they did here? Blue and white premium full-grain leather give the upper a premium look. One big difference to the “original” releases is the translucent outsole with the gigantic Nike swoosh underneath. In the past, the classic outsoles were black.
