“At Soleheaven, we’re big on three things: a minimalist approach, subtle branding and classy materialisation,” says Simon Blenkinsop, manager of the Newcastle-based sneaker boutique.

“For us, the shoe that exemplifies all three more than any is Nike’s Crown Jewel of sorts, the Air Max 1 ‘Jewel’. After returning this year to duke it out with multiple OG releases, the Jewel displayed everything needed for a modern-day drop. Accents of colour on the branding pop against the monochrome palette, with the subtle Jewel swoosh showing addition by subtraction. After a series of drops this year (my favourite being the ‘Carolina Blues’), I can’t wait to see the next.”
