It was teased a while ago that the jewel Swoosh may or may not return this year. Lo and behold, Nike gives the fans what they want — they are slowly selling out if not completely already.
This is my ruby red (and white) slippers.
The classic silhouette is made of a soft white leather upper. It’s premium, but not Pinnacle level. It is soft to the touch, and will surely crease and age well with wear.
The whole has red accented colours on the bubbly, jewel-like swoosh on the medial and lateral sides, tongue tag, heel branding, and air unit.
The tongue is different from your thick padded style. It’s stitched all around, giving it a slightly slimmer look.
My favourite is the creamy, translucent soles that reveals the Nike swoosh swooshing length-wise across the outsoles.
Fit & Comfort
They fit alright, just like any other Air Maxes. I got a half size smaller due to my true size being sold out. I figured the leather will expand as I wear the shoes and mould around my feet nicely. Upon receipt and putting them on, they feel a little snug with still a bit of room. I should have gone with my true size, but it is manageable.
So go TTS unless you want a tight, snug fit.
All-in-all, the white pair of sneakers with red accents is perfect for summer. I love its simplicity and can’t wait to wear in the leather a little bit.
