Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Pinnacle”
Release Date:June 20, 2015
One of the more exclusive Air Jordan models today, the Retro High “Pinnacle” comes in two beautiful designs – white-metallic-gold, and something in a much darker shade. Now, there is really no wrong choice between the two – but unless you are lucky enough to buy them both. It is important to first review the design and what the white Pinnacle can offer you. Here it goes:
As the name suggests, this version of the Pinnacle is a combination of gold, white, and a metallic hue – each one placed in strategic places for maximum impact.
The majority of the shoes are all done in glaring white. It is a combination of leather and snake skin, providing a perfect fit and luxurious feel with each step you take. Even the sole and outsole are done in white with the sole ribbed for a more stylish look. The Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Pinnacle” carries the iconic check mark of the Nike brand along the side, also done in white which creates a clean and seamless blend.
There is no specific shoe part the screams metallic, but you can definitely notice it all over the shoe, as if the metal is strategically blended with the white. The gold, however, is easily spotted since there are hints of this in the aglet, the eye stay, and the eyelets. There is also an unmistakable gold near the ankles featuring the traditional “Air” logo – a ball with wings.
The tongue is also done completely in white with the worded Nike logo plated on the center. The plate is again made of gold, creating that distinctive look. The back portion along the heels is also very iconic. There are two gold plates placed vertically on the heels, each one displaying a different theme. The left gets an “MJ 23” design while the other one has the “1985” number. Note that all the plating use 24K gold.
The stitching is exquisite, the thread also done in white so you practically cannot see anything. A once-in-a-lifetime pair, it is safe to say that Nike poured a lot of research, development, and material into Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Pinnacle” to turn it into something durable, comfortable, and striking.
