We’ve already gone throwback with the Air Max 1 with our two week-long Classics Revisited features, but we can’t help but shed some light on some other unforgettable AM1s of the past. Why didn’t we include them as part of Classics Revisited? Well, these two pairs, found on the feet of DEAUP in our popular WDYWT, sitting front-and-center weren’t actually released (and we need to draw the line somewhere). Your eyes are likely locked in on the interesting tag of these Air Max 1s, and rightfully so; the ‘One’s By Nike’ tag was used on a select number of ‘1’ models like the Air Max 1 and Air Trainer 1 that released in 2003 and 2004, but these two unreleased samples brings in some fresh colorways to the ‘One’s’ with the Cork-like upper that was seen in a fellow Air Max 1 release of 2005 (pictured below). Check ‘em out below and if you have ‘em in your stash and are just now realizing what you’ve got on your hands, congrats!
(The above grey/white are the released versions)
