Fans of the Air Max 1, the 35th Anniversary is just getting started. The finest of the Air Max 1 will be saved for a later date as we get a first look at an Air Max 1 draped in safari print on the midsole and ankle collar, while three region-exclusive releases are coming on Air Max Day. The forefoot mini-Swoosh and the text-free logo at the heel are both reminiscent of Japan’s atmos and their renowned 2003 collaboration with Nike.
The combination of cobblestone, weathered blue, and limestone creates a genuinely earthy and natural aesthetic matching the Safari theme, and the Swoosh emblem has a feel similar to that of a wild animal upon closer inspection. The toe-box is made of soft suede rather than the mesh used in the original design, while the tongue is made of traditional nylon. Still, they are a jewel of a general release, and with the Air Max 1’s popularity growing by the day, they’ll be a popular choice once they arrive.
Stay tuned for further information on the release, and we’ll notify you as soon as it becomes available.
