NIKE AIR MAX 1 WEEK PART 2

So you think the Atmos x Air Max 1 or the DJCK x Air Max ‘112’ was the first Air Max 1 to feature elephant print? Guess you forgot about these. Continuing with Classics Revisited is a the tail-end of a back-t0-back of Nike Air Max 1 No-Liners; “No-Liner” signifies the unpadded upper, giving the ankle collar area a slimmed down appeal much like on the contemporary ‘Deconstruct’ models of the Air Force 1 and Dunk High (‘NL’ has been done with the Dunk High before as well). Although the amount of Air Max 1 NL releases were rather small, the leather-built NL construction provided the sporty Air Max 1 with more of a lifestyle appeal, even when transformed into one of the most iconic basketball shoes of all-time – the Air Jordan III. In late 2005, Nike released two colorways of the Nike Air Max 1 NL with the sparsely used elephant print on mudguard uppers and colored up in familiar AJ3 colorways (although the Neutral Grey had a light beige tone to it), and not surprisingly, both Premium releases were instant hits and cleared out of stores quickly. More of this Air Max 1 classic duet below, so take a look and let us know if these are sitting in your sneaker collection.

Sold both my pairs a while ago, the leather quality on these are excellent, but the whole "NL"-no liner gimmick made the shoes pretty uncomfortable to wear.

Wow. I've never seen or heard of either of these, but they both kick ass. Love the concept.
