Air Jordan 1 High Spiderman: Across the Spiderverse Shock Drop
Listen up, sneakerheads! It is speculated that the highly anticipated Air Jordan 1 High Spiderman: Across the Spiderverse will be released today, May 2, 2023, at 2:00 pm EST, exclusively via the SNKRS app.
This exclusive shoe is a sequel to 2018’s wildly successful Jordan 1 Retro High Spider-Man Origin Story. I was lucky enough to cop the Origin Stories for my personal collection and will be looking to pick these up also. Miles Morales being one of the most favored Marvel characters by blerds, this is a must-pick-up. The shoe comes in black, red, and blue and has spider-web decorations on the tongue and heel. It also has a Spiderman emblem on the translucent outsole.
The sneaker community has been buzzing about the possibility of a surprise price drop for this highly awaited sneaker. If the reports are true, this drop will supposedly take place without any advance warning, giving those who are continuously refreshing the SNKRS app the best opportunity of snagging a pair.
The animated sequel Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be released in theaters in 2022, and the Air Jordan 1 High Spiderman: Across the Spiderverse will be inspired by the film. Fans of the Spider-Man films and sneaker collectors alike will appreciate this shoe’s fitting homage to the heroic hero.
The shoe’s black leather upper and contrasting blue and red embellishments are clearly influenced by Spiderman’s web-slinging style. Extra superhero flair comes from the Spiderman logo on the tongue and the spider webs on the heel.
The Spider-Man emblem pops out of the icy blue translucent outsole, making these shoes stand out even more. This provides greater depth and visual appeal to the overall composition.
Nike has been playing games with us with these shock drops lately. The Lost and Found shock drop was highly anticipated by sneakerheads last week. While frustrating, I do find the shock drops to be a bit fun. It makes getting your hands on a pair of these highly sought-after sneakers feel more like a prize because of the element of surprise.
It’s worth noting, though, that shock-drops can be disheartening for sneakerheads who miss out on a pair for any number of reasons—whether they weren’t aware of the drop, didn’t have the SNKRS app installed, or weren’t quick enough to add the shoes to their cart before they sold out. Make sure if you want a pair that you have the app downloaded, multiple payment methods pre-saved, are logged in, and have quick fingers.
Many sneakerheads have been waiting patiently for the release of the Air Jordan 1 High Spiderman: Across the Spiderverse. Collectors and fans of the Spider-Man franchise will love it for its one-of-a-kind design and connection to the film series.
One of the most recognizable and adored sneaker designs of all time, the Air Jordan 1 silhouette deserves special mention. Over the years, Jordan Brand has released countless iterations of the Air Jordan 1, including numerous colorways and designer collaborations, but the original model always manages to come out on top.
The Air Jordan 1 High Spiderman: Across the Spiderverse exemplifies Jordan Brand’s ability to breathe new life into a classic form with innovative design. It’s proof that the company can continue to surprise and delight its target audience, the sneaker community.
