Sneakerheads had a reason to celebrate last year—after months of rumors as well as leaked photographs, a release date was finally confirmed. Nike was bringing back the wildly popular sneakers first introduced ten years ago, a reimagining of the Nike Air Max 1 and Jordan III by the Japanese brand Atmos. The development was not out of the blue, as Nike previously asked fans on Air Max Day the design they would love to see again. As it turns out, the poll served a purpose, and sneakerheads had another shot at grabbing the unique collab a year later.

The 2000s was a colorful decade for Nike. Many runners went through makeovers, and the revamped versions were sought after in all corners of the world. Back then, purchasing wasn’t as easy as a single tap on your phone. The advances in technology eventually made the hunt a little painless, but Nike wouldn’t just let the magic of buying popular sneakers of yesteryears vanish. The stock for the Atmos pack was made limited, with many missing out on the release.
The previous collabs between Atmos and Nike resulted in pairs that were praised for top quality and flexible leather. Both companies upheld the reputation of the popular kicks by employing the same for Air Jordan x Atmos 3. The leather is especially soft to the touch and would lead one to think that it would also be comfortable around the feet. In this aspect, Atmos and Nike also deliver, as the shoes provide adequate cushioning to give each step a nice bounce. These kicks are suitable for everyday use if we’re dealing only with their comfort and durability; the midsole and the outsole are both made to last. Of course, it is difficult to miss the sneakers’ design which is the primary reason for their popularity. The originals were already more than a decade old, yet people still clamored for them. We bet that these will be sneakers that will still be on point even in the years to come.
Many want to cop them, but not everyone who voted for them to come back will. These shoes saw a limited release and sold out immediately, that the only option left is to find them now is mostly through resellers. Dealing with a high resale value will most likely be a problem given their rarity and the demand for them, and the original retail price is already steep as it is. In terms of the sneakers’ construction, there have been complaints regarding their clunkiness and odd shape. The patterns require more consideration when pairing with your outfits too, as they can easily stand out in any ensemble.
