‘The Excavation’ continues with the Nike AJ1 Low ‘Neutral Grey’

  • 22. Juni 2021

After last year’s digging-event at the Air Jordan 1 Hi ’85 excavation site and this year’s 1-of-1 Air Jordan 1 ’85 statue, we knew the story was not over yet. This time around, the Air Jordan 1 ’85 series continues with a new discovery that we are bringing home to our community. Accompanying the upcoming release of the Nike Air Jordan 1 Low ‘Neutral Grey’, you have the chance to own and excavate an exclusive Air Jordan 1 fossil.

During our digging event at the Air Jordan 1 Hi ’85 excavation site last year, we knew there was still more to discover. Motivated by the upcoming release of the Nike Air Jordan 1 Low ‘Neutral Grey’, we took the time to revisit the excavation site once more. Now we made an unusual archeological discovery: a series of fossilized sculptures. These sculptures were found on the outskirts of the German capital and seem to be made up of a currently unknown metal, of which the origins have yet to be determined.

To give our community a chance to research and assess this Air Jordan 1 Low collectible, we are giving away 35 to-be-excavated fossilized sculptures as “Excavation Kit” during the release of the Nike Air Jordan 1 Low ‘Neutral Grey’ in Berlin.

35 lucky participants will be able to own one of these highly collectible fossils preserved in a stone block. Each stone block is accompanied with a Solebox branded chisel and hammer, so that each can experience unearthing the unique fossil for themselves. We are looking forward to seeing the outcome of each individual excavation.

The Air Jordan 1’ 85 is a sneaker with a rich and colourful history and this discovery coincides with the first re-release of the OG sneaker since its inception in 1985 in a colour-way not seen since 2015. Instead of each outer component being from smooth leather, this Air Jordan 1 ‘Neutral Grey’ has a distinguishable suede Swoosh and heel-tab in a neutral grey colorway.

The Air Jordan 1 Low ‘Neutral Grey’ will release online at solebox.com and instore on June 24th.
