Before Nike Sportswear and Sean Wotherspoon settled on a final design, they tested different corduroy options on his Air Max 1/97 hybrid collaboration.

Earlier today, Wotherspoon offered this look at two samples, styled with full navy and light blue corduroy uppers. The final version in the photo is also a sample that has since been tweaked.

As of now, neither of the solid upper samples are expected to release, but you never know what NSW has on its agenda.
