The Air Jordan 1 colorway inspired by Spider–Man: Into the Spider–Verse is joining this month’s upcoming Air Jordan releases 2018. Over the years, there have been several custom Air Jordan pairs inspired by the Marvel superhero, Spider-Man. For instance, sneaker customizer Sekure D designed an Air Jordan 6 “Spider-Man” back in September 2014. Earlier that year, even Nike officially released the Foamposite Pro “Spider-Man,” which made its retail debut on February 8th, 2014 at a price of $250. The upcoming Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG colorway draws inspiration from the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse animated film and is being released in celebration of its upcoming release.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse Is Releasing In Coming Days
Although it is not a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you should definitely watch Spider–Man: Into the Spider–Verse if you are a fan of the character. Rather than the Spider-Man everyone is familiar with, the protagonist of the film is Miles Morales, who was initially the “Ultimate Comics Spider–Man.” Two different versions of Peter Parker also appear in the film, one of whom has been killed and replaced by Miles. Since the film revolves around the “Spider–Verse,” several alternate versions of Spider-Man and other spider-themed heroes also pop up from their own respective universes. The Kingpin is also a part of the film as the main villain.
The Air Jordan 1 “Origin Story” Arrives On The Release Date Of Into The Spider-Verse
The very first photo of the Air Jordan 1 “Origin Story” surfaced in the beginning of December and it was likely assumed to be some variation of the OG “Chicago” colorway. In one of the billboards of Into The Spider–Verse though, Spider–Man (Miles Morales) could be seen laced up in this same Air Jordan 1 colorway. The resemblance is understandable since it features the same color blocking and color scheme of Black, White and Gym Red. The major difference is the spots that appear all over its Gym Red-colored overlays, likely a reference to Spider-Man’s wall-clinging ability and the Ben–Day dots typically seen in comic books.
