TUMBLED LEATHER AND MESH MAKE UP THIS NIKE AIR MAX 1'S CONSTRUCTION

Nike has just six months left to celebrate the Air Max 1’s 35th anniversary. Many of the currently announced products will set trends and tones as the Air Max 1 approaches 40 years old.

This shoe features color-blocking and a unique material

Here’s the first time you’ve seen a Nike Air Max 1 in its most classic color-blocking style, but with a rather unusual material. The mudguard, quarter, heel, and Swoosh are all made of high-quality tumbled leather. The classic sport mesh at the toe and nylon at the ankle are the other parts that make this must-have colorway. The classic white midsole is paired with a light grey rubber outsole that shows a yellow Air unit through the Air Max window. At the back of the shoe, just below the Nike Swoosh, it says “AIR MAX.”

Conclusion

“Tumbled leather” is a surprising material to see on Nike’s “Air Max 1,” but it works well to create a modernized, casual look. It’s great that Nike decided to take the Air Max 1 in a new direction instead of just trying to keep up with what other brands were doing.
