Now these Air Max 1’s aren’t exactly the OG pair. But it’s as close as we’ll get. The colorway obviously is pretty damn close to the original colorway. Although the tech aspects of the Air Max has been altered just a tad bit for the modern day sneakerhead. Nike switched up the gears by adding a yellow-ish midsole and a gum bottom to achieve the retro feel (and my personal favorite on any shoe). The precious suede materials, updated mesh and an off white leather quarter remain the same. Which is why these will definitely catch every sneakerheads’ eye once they hit the shelves. As of lately the Amx1’s have been pretty popular for the ladies & I have absolutely no complaints about that. Keep lacin’ ladies.
No announcement for a stateside release, but all the lovely ladies can cop your pair at Japan retailers such as Atmos.
