Now firstly I have to admit that these are my first pairs of Air Max 1s and have been a long time coming. I have always been a fan, but I’ve never pulled the trigger on a pair and then I go and fire both barrels and get two (no half measures). Talking of size, I will 100% say that if you are a particular size then you will be that size. So yes the Air Max 1s are true to size.
The Air Max 1 has been a staple for Nike over the years and originally was the first sneaker that featured the ‘Air’ technology. Designed by Nike’s most recognisable designer Tinker Hatfield, the Air Max 1 has been released in pretty much every colourway under the sun. This one trainer has become so culturally big that there is a book specifically on this model and also there is a globally recognised Air Max day (Yes, I know it includes other members of the Air Max family but still).
Some of the most recognisable colourways of the Air Max 1 have been:
- Original Blue/white
- Original Red/ white
- Elephant Atmos
- Safari Atmos
The two pairs that I now own are from the Premium Pack in the infrared/black and platinum/sail colourways.
Let me know if you own a pair of Air Max 1s and what your favourite colourways are down below!?!
