Sometimes seeing really is believing. That was certainly the case in '87 when the original Air Max debuted. It was the first shoe to feature a visible Air unit that let light shine through so athletes could see the technology at work. Thirty years later, the Air Max 1 Anniversary shoe celebrates the sneaker that made Air cool. It features the same design as the OG legend, updated with modern materials and a heritage University Red colorway.
Remember the revolution. 1987 saw the birth of the Air Max lineage, showcasing visible Air for the first time. What began as an experiment in cushioning soon evolved into an icon on the track – and the streets. Over the years, it’s been re-imagined and retooled, but the heritage always remains.
The Nike Air Max 1 returns tomorrow (Sept 26th) in its true OG form at NRML (184 Rideau) in very limited quantities.
