Pictures of the mint green Nike Air Max 1 VT have been floating around for a couple weeks with mixed reviews.  Come to find out, mint has a two sisters to complete the Vachetta Pack.  

While the top colors differ, what's unique about these pairs is that they come wrapped in a Vachetta leather midsole.  As Nike explains it, "Vachetta leather upper is untreated and prone to creasing, staining and darkening in the sun.  As the shoe ages, it develops a unique distressed patina and becomes personalized to the wearer."  So in a nutshell, if you and several of your friends have the same color, they will each look different after a few wears.  Hmmmm......interesting!  Keep in mind that the VT (colored) part of the shoe will remain relatively unchanged.  The Vac-Tech top and the Vachetta mid, sit atop a gum outsole.  


The Womens Nike Air Max 1 VT Vachetta Pack will be available at Nike Sportswear retailers beginning June 29th.
