We’re in the midst of a NIKE AIR MAX invasion. The festival of all things AIR MAX kicked off last year with the AIR MAX 1 25th Anniversary celebrations and is showing no signs of letting up. In a month when we’ve seen reissues of the original NIKE AIR MAX 1, 90, 95 and 97, along with their reinvented ENGINEERED MESH make-ups, these two premium AIR MAX 1 offerings are taking the shoe back to basics on the colourways, yet upgrading the materials and finish.
The all-white version has a full leather upper and boasts a silver swoosh, grey accents and a nice set of slightly thicker than normal flat laces, white embroidered heel branding and a silver leather swoosh, which completes the premium application.
The blacks, which we think are one of the nicest AM1’s to drop of late, are made from a tough, almost waxed canvas upper, which is a solid favourite of The Drop Date ranks and last featured on the Patta collaborations, which are up there with the best of them when it comes to AM1 get-togethers. Like the whites, they are finished with grey accents, same style of laces, white embroidered heel branding and the silver leather swoosh, which on the black backdrop, makes for a really solid release. An excellent option if you’ve already got all this months other AIR MAX drops stashed away in your crates from years gone by, but still need your air fix.
Now we’ve bigged them up, we’re going to kick some of you in the virtual nuts. Yep, they’re womens, so they run from a UK3 to a UK9.5, sorry lads. At this point, distribution looks really tight on these two drops so if you’re in two minds, that might help you make your decision, which to us, if you can grab your size, is most definitely a no-brainer on the blacks. sold!
