The Nike Air Max is one of the most popular lines from the Swoosh in their lengthy history. With this year’s Air Max Day already behind us, Nike has unveiled a surprise drop coming this month- a hybrid Air Max 90/1.
Earlier this year, Nike released a combination of the Air Max 1 and Air Max 97 to celebrate Air Max Day in March. Designed by Sean Wotherspoon, the shoe was immensely successful, selling out everywhere and climbing up the list for greatest Air Max shoes of all time. Now, Nike is revisiting the hybrid idea for their other shoes, reminiscing on a similar series of sneakers from the early 2000’s. The first silhouette will fuse the Air Max 1 upper with the Air Max 90 sole, for a clean new look sure the please Nike Air collectors. The first colorway to cover the new model uses the Air Max 1’s classic “University Red” color blocking. The upper features a grey base with red running around the sole, as well as a red Swoosh and Nike Air branding on the heel and tongue. The combination Air Max 90/1 is was actually first released in 1992 as a retro version of each sneaker. However, the original run was produced in incredibly low numbers (just a few thousand) so old school Air Max heads will likely be delighted by this wider release.
