Set To Drop: Air Jordan Retro 1 'Pollen'Published:
October 08, 2021
It was 1999 when pictures started to surface around the internet of a pair of Black and Yellow Nike Air Dunks with a Black Wu-Tang Clan logo stitched on the heal. The sneaker head scene went ballistic. The Wu-Tang Dunks shut down the internet before shutting down the internet was even a thing. Collectors searched high and low for a pair and still, to this day, there’s maybe less than a dozen or so pairs in circulation which is why with a strong resemblance to the Wu-Tang Clan Dunks the next Air Jordan 1 High Retro release is creating a buzz.
Black tumbled leather makes up the toe box, side panel, and ankle collar. In contrast, Pollen colored leather is used for the overlays which includes the toe, up the laces, around the ankle and down around the heal. The Nike Swoosh also sports the Pollen color giving the pair a strong resemblance to the aforementioned Dunks. The icons Wings logo is stamped in Black just below the ankle and a Pollen tag with a Black check and White Nike Air is stitched on the tongue. To complete the look, everything sits atop White midsoles and Pollen soles.
Given the iconic resemblance to the famous Wu-Tang Clan Dunks, I do not see these sitting on the shelves for very long.
