The Nike Air Max 1 ‘Evolution of Icons’ trainer completes the latest EOI pack with references to Visible Air classics like the Air Max 90 ‘Infrared’ & the Air Max 95 ‘Neon’.
It would be hard to imagine a world without Air Max in it. Whether you found your first passion for Air Max bouncing around a Bassline club in the early noughties or a more recent revival re-release, there’s something about them classic Air Max styles that never seem to grow old. Air Max Day was first introduced by the swoosh brand back in 2014, with each year giving Air Max aficionados something different to shout about. Following on from the recent EOI releases across numerous OG models, the pack is now completed with the introduction of the Nike Air Max 1 ‘Evolution of Icons’ trainer for Air Max Day 2021.
Giving a nod to past icons, the original and the very first Air Max 1 model is treated to a very special Nike Air Max Day 2021 release. Featuring white leather uppers with suede overlays, the mish mash design features an assortment of style inspiration from the past. For example, the left toe box features design traits from the Air Max 98 whilst the right side looks to the caged design of the Air Max Plus.
The upper eyelets give a nod to the Air Max 90 ‘Infrared’ with the iconic TPU moulds. The tongue logos are also switched up with the left side featuring the famous single swoosh of the Air Max 90 & the right side the Air Max Plus.
Other highlights of the exclusive Air Max Day 2021 release includes ‘3.26’ to the left heel counter, which references the official date of the Air Max Day celebrations alongside a selection of OG inspired swooshes which draw inspiration from the likes of the Air Max 95 ‘Neon’ & the Air Max 180 ‘Ultramarine’. A selection of OG Air Max styles also feature to the insoles such as the Nike Air Max 1 ‘Anniversary Red’ trainer & the Nike Air Max 98 ‘Gundam’.
