Completing the second week of Air Max 1 highlights in Classics Revisited is an early 2000’s colorway dubbed the ‘Storm’. Although it has no true connection with a major retailer or cult-followed artist, the Air Max 1 ‘Storm’ is a bonafide classic that likely belongs in the collection of ‘older’ sneakerheads – aka those who have been on the Air Max 1 tip for a while. Featuring a speckled midsole and an outstanding colorway, this Air Max 1 release was part of an unofficial ‘Storm Pack’, which included an equally rugged Air Burst. The Air Max 1 was released only in select accounts in the U.S. as well as in Europe and Japan, so deadstock pairs don’t exactly pop up too often. Although it is considered a ‘general release’, the ‘Storm’ Air Max 1 is regarded as highly as other big-ticket collaborations of that era. If you’ve got the Storms in your collection, you’ve earned a nice thumbs up from us!
