“March 26, 1987, marked the release of the Air Max 1 and with it, a revolution began. In the form of a literal window to the sole, the invisible became visible and Nike Air cushioning forever changed how Nike designed running sneakers. Twenty-seven years have passed, visibility has increased, the legend has grown, and the time to celebrate has arrived. 3.26, the day that started it all, marks the celebration of an experiment turned icon. To kickstart the festivities, a limited edition Air Max 1 will be released to usher in a new tradition.” – NIKE
So yeah! Wednesday is Nike’s birthday, and as stated above they will celebrate it with a limited edition Air Max 1. It’s basically the same color scheme as the original from ’87 with the same materials. However, they added a little twist to it. The midsole went from white to a bright volt, to accentuate the visible air bubble. And to remember history, they’ve added “3.26” on the tongue tab.
I stopped by our local sneaker store, Stress, who fortunately received them. I like them a lot. Air Max 1’s are my all time favorite running shoe. The fact that the midsole was volt this time around made them, in my opinion, even nicer. Happy birthday Air Max 1. 27 years old, and still running! Thank you Tinker Hatfield…
