Air Jordan 4 Reimagined

March 1, 2024 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers

 

Air Jordan 4 Reimagined

The Air Jordan 4 Bred Reimagined comes constructed out of a Black premium leather upper instead of the usual nubuck construction we’ve seen on the original and past retro versions of the Air Jordan 4 Bred. In addition to the Black upper we then see Cement Grey detailing on the waffle eyelets, inner liner, the Nike Air branding on the midsole, and portions of the midsole and outsole. To complete the Bred theme we see the addition of Fire Red on the Jumpman on the tongues, inner tongues, and parts of the outsole. A white rubber midsole wraps up the look on this timeless Air Jordan 4. The Air Jordan 4 Bred Reimagined dropped on February 17th during All-Star Weekend for the retail price of $215. That date was also to celebrate Michael Jordan’s 61st birthday.

Air Max 1 ‘86 • Chicago

October 26, 2023 | Category: Ward 1 Sneakers

Air Max 1 ‘86 • Chicago

Celebrate the Chicago skyline with the Air Max 1 ’86. History lesson: In the wake of the Great Chicago Fire, residents worked together to rebuild, replacing charred wooden structures with steel, concrete and glass. The AM1 ’86 “Chicago” pays homage to this “second city,” bringing the hues of modern skyscrapers to premium leather and suede. Blue Chill accents and a reflective Swoosh nod to the mirror image of downtown towers in the surface of Lake Michigan. And on the the insole and tongue label, you’ll find that iconic skyline, overlayed by a Nike Swoosh.

Chicago Pack

Built for, validated by, and told through the city: Chicago, this one’s for you. Nike teamed up with six local streetwear legends (Leaders, Notre, RSVP, St. Alfred, SVRN and Succezz) to craft sneakers inspired by the resilience of Chicagoans past and present. Through the stories at the heart of these designs, the Chicago Pack evokes an ever-evolving blend of heritage and modernity, fire and water, steel and wood. As a unifying touch, both footwear styles feature a special-edition graphic on the insole and tongue label—the Chicago skyline overlayed by a Nike Swoosh.

Air Max 1 ’86 OG – Dark Obsidian and University Red

The holy grail of sneaker lore returns, bringing with it the origin story of visible Nike Air. Using CT scans to dissect one of the original pairs of the Air Max 1 with the infamous “Big Bubble,” we replicated the oversized Nike Air unit and window from ’86 so you can step on the bedrock of sneaker history.

Air Max 1 ’86 – Lost Sketch

Lost and found. Open the vault. Make “what if?” a reality. Pulling details from a long lost notebook, this Air Max 1 brings one of Tinker Hatfield’s early drawings to life for the first time. Originally conceived in ’86, the design brings history into the now with a worn aesthetic on the leather overlays and aged midsole. Safari print on the mudguard and a ‘hand drawn’ graphic above the Nike Air window round out the story of pulling pages from the history books, while shades of purple and blue mix with Light Smoke Grey for a colorway that’s a dream come true.

Air Jordan 6 • Toro Bravo

For many of you, this one’s been a long time coming. The AJ6 ‘Toro Bravo’ brings the coveted look of the 2009 Raging Bull pack to a champion-winning shoe.

Air Jordan 11 Retro Low • Cement Grey

 

Let’s cut to the chase—the AJ11 is all-time. MJ won 72 games and a title while wearing ’em. Now, the icon returns. From its slick patent leather mudguard to the frosted outsole, this Tinker Hatfield design brings the off-court allure.

 

 




 

Air Max 1 ’86 Original • Big Bubble

Let’s be clear, sneaker culture and history begins here: the Air Max 1 “Big Bubble.”

 The holy grail of sneaker lore returns along with the true story of visible Nike Air. Using CT scans (yes, really) to dissect 1 of maybe only 400,000 released pairs of the “Big Bubble,” we replicated the Nike Air unit and window used in the ’86 original, so you can step on the bedrock of sneaker history. And don’t worry, you still get the throwback color blocking. 

Hiding in the shadows of one of Nike’s biggest stories (that of revealing Nike Air to the world) is the fact that for the first few months of its release, the Air Max 1 featured a noticeably bigger window. So, like why did the window shrink? With a launch date in place and manufacturing already started, Nike engineers (to their dismay) discovered that an exposed Air unit had a tendency to crack in cold temperatures. Adjusting on the fly, engineers quietly “shrunk the window both in length and height” and began using a new Air unit to prevent the great cracking catastrophe. 

Released on March 26th, 1987, the ultra-rare Air Max “Big Bubble” hit the shelves and thankfully didn’t bust (most likely because of the rising spring temps). After the initial run, the Air Max 1 as we know it secretly replaced the original, taking hold as the leader of the Air Max pack. And the “Big Bubble?” It faded away—until now.

Welcome to the beginning.

 

 

 




 

Air Jordan 3 – White Cement Reimagined

 

Step back to 1988 with one of the most coveted sneaker colorways of all time. The AJ3 “White Cement Reimagined” honors 35 years with an aged aesthetic that redefines timeless. Bring the vintage vibes with yellowing on the midsole, eyelets and backtab, plus classic Nike Air branding at the heel. Elephant print (updated to replicate the ’88 original) and splashes of Sail and Fire Red keep the original design alive and well—and keep you in your element. Clutch!
