As Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is creeping closer and closer to being released on the 2nd of June, 2023. Excitement is brimming and is only helped by the impending release of the Nike Air Jordan 1 High OG Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse sneakers, first teased in February. Their official release date has finally been announced, and we can expect them just over a month from now. If you love the exciting cartoon/mixed animation style of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, these would be the perfect sneakers to wear to go and welcome the sequel into cinemas.
Air Jordan 1 High OG Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse
The colourway for the Air Jordan 1 High OG Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has been announced as University Red, Black and White, and it really is a mixture of the colours as well as other elements and is a perfect homage to the way that the movies make exciting use of a lot of colours and animation effects to add a live comic-element to the film, the sneakers have used a wide variety of textures to bring that same theme to life.
Starting at the top, we see black patent leather making up the collar of the sneakers as well as the Nike Swoosh, joined by a large polka-dot design with pops of red, blue and yellow that look like they have jumped straight out of the movie, added to the heel wrap and making up part of the lace eyelets. Black is also brought in once again as the colour for the laces.
Further, down the lace stays, we see bright, university red making up the lower lace stays with some more patent leather which leads to a bit of tie-dye-looking red and black suede tied together with the same texture and fabric on the heel once again.
The heel and mid-foot panel leading into the toe box see a tad more suede in a dark red that almost looks a little pink but doesn’t look out of place on the sneakers. The rest of the toe box comprises white tumbled leather and some University Red tumbled leather. The white tumbled leather also makes up the rest of the upper, tying the whole sneaker together.
The outsole is a semi-translucent bright University Red, making it appear slightly brighter at the front and back of the sole and a bit darker throughout the middle. At the same time, the midsole is a shade or two off-white, matching the tongue label of the sneakers.
