Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary Aqua

Post by k3f1sfls »


As with Tinker Hatfield’s original design, the forthcoming pair features a “White/University Red/Neutral Grey/Black” color palette. Instead of simply being a reissue of that inaugural style, Nike Sneakers however, the newly-surfaced Air Max sneaker nods to various silhouettes featuring the game-changing technology: gradient suede swaths and TPU upper eye-stays are borrowed from the Air Max 95 and Air Max 90, respectively, while insoles including printed images of nine other designs à la sneaker’s “History of Air” colorway from 2006.

In celebration of Nike Womens during the month of March, Nike will be releasing a new Air Max Plus that’s heavily inspired by the OG Air Max 1. This Nike Air Max Plus features a White mesh upper paired with a Light Grey cage overlays and classic Red mudguards to really give off that Air Max 1 vibe. Signature “TN” branding atop a White midsole with Red Air bubbles atop a Black rubber outsole completes the design.

The Nike Air Max 1 arrived at a time when Nike was looking for a way to overtake competition who, while still not as popular, was beating Nike in the visual department. As super-bright color palettes and eye-catching designs rose to the top, Nike’s understated Cortez, Waffle Racer, and Tailwind were being overshadowed. One trip to Paris later and Tinker Hatfield, having marveled at the Pompidou Centre and its exoskeleton of walkways, decided to design a shoe with its air bubble on show.

Although Nike Air Max 1 Anniversary Aqua wasn’t new, it had so far only been built into the soles of shoes and hidden from sight. Hatfield’s revolutionary reshuffle of the Nike formula set the sportswear giant on a path of no return, littered with yet-to-be iconic silhouettes. What is perhaps most impressive about the Nike Air Max 1, which was met with cynicism at first, is that it’s still one of Nike’s most popular silhouettes.
