The Nike Air Max 1 is a running shoe that rooted from the Air Max which later acquired a few developments. This running shoe represents a new generation of athletic footwear, breaking the traditional way that a sneaker was supposed to look like. By rendering vibrant colors, it makes the shoe incomparable and unique. For most, bold colors are being used on the lux synthetic leather creating a smart retro version of the classic Nike Air Max 1.
Aside from the synthetic material, Nike also incorporates mesh parts on the upper for durability, breathability with high-quality look and feel. A PU midsole was utilized as well as Max Air heel unit for softer landings and modified Nike Waffle outsole for better traction.
Providing superior cushioning is the main objective of the Air Max 1 as it was designed with the Max Air cushioning technology that takes a pounding on any track obstacles.
While a plethora of colorways have been released, the public was able to see innovation on the Nike Air Max 1. Such enhancements include the use of suede on the upper which is usually being done by collaborators. The change in material does not mean altering the whole design but only the texture, giving the shoe a more contemporary look.
The solid pattern on the upper leaves a cleaner setup with the embroidered Nike branding. With the White midsole, the Air Max unit becomes prominent and visible, thus rendering a neat approach.
