In 2004, Nike released the Air Max 1 ‘Urawa’, celebrating a premier Japanese football club. Now, they appear to be releasing an updated version of the shoe with a new color scheme for 2023.
Over the last year, Nike has rehashed some of their classic limited-edition Air Max 1 releases from the early 2000s, either recrafting highly sought-after pairs to a tee, or making some adjustments to the original. The latest retro pair falls under the latter category, revisiting 2004’s Air Max 1 ‘Urawa’ with a modern day twist. Originally released to celebrate the Urawa Red Dragons football team in Japan, the 2004 pair featured a bright red color scheme with neutral accents. Now, the 2023 look switches up the color palette, beginning with a black mesh underlay and adding light grey leather overlays on top. Swooshes and laces come in plain white, while red accents for the Air bubble and upper eyelets add a flash of color, alongside gold tongue branding.
