The Air Jordan 1 High Nouveau Snakeskin is the most recent Air Jordan 1 High Nouveau to drop. That’s soon about to change as another entirely different version is on the way. Opting to keep things more on the traditional side, our first look of the shoe shows its upper come in a Pure Platinum leather upper that takes care of most of the upper. Just like the Snakeskin version, this pair also has a Nike Swoosh that is cut-out on the side panels to reveal a tonal mesh construction. Offsetting the tonal look of the shoe is the crimson found on the lining, as well as the colored branding hits placed on the ankle and tongue. Rope laces and a white midsole complete the look of the shoe. No word yet on when these will drop but let us know what you think so far.
It’s way too basic for my taste. Nouveau versions of the Air Jordan 1 are supposed to be premium versions of the shoe. What makes this shoe premium? Not even the look of it feels premium. Is there something I’m missing here?
