In 1987, the Nike Air Max 1 changed the history of performance running sneakers by giving you a peek inside how the sneaker was made thanks to a visible air unit placed on the back heel. This need for inovation initially championed by Tinker Hatfield has stuck with Nike throughout its dominance over the past two decades and has given us tech advancements ranging from Free to Flyknit all the way to Lunarlon midsoles.
The latest reinvention takes their flagship runner in the Air Max 1 and gives it a twist thanks to a lightweight lunar midsole while keeping the air max unit intact. The upper gets redesigned as well thanks to the ever-lightweight hyperfuse, mesh and tape to bring the classic silhouette up to speed with the times. The new edition of the Nike Air Max 1 will hit select Nike outlets starting today, June 27th.
