Although Air Jordan fans may be inclined to disagree, the Air Max 1 should be deemed the ‘magnus opus’ of Tinker Hatfield’s illustrious career. This design, which debuted in 1987, paved the way for nearly three decades of Running evolution, and at this point, there simply is no stopping the Air Max train, and the only question mark lies in the direction its heading in. The original Red/White colorway is the definitive ‘Air Max’ shoe, and over the course of over a quarter-century, Nike has re-issued the shoe in various forms like Original Mesh, Leather, Engineered Mesh, ‘OG’, History of Air, and more, starting the first ‘Retro’ in 1988 and continuing in 2013. One focused collector of Runners has managed to accumulate eight versions of the Air Max 1 in this signature Red, starting with the ’97 Leather to the most recent ‘Engineered Mesh’. Look below for a nice near-complete recap of the Air Max 1 Retro and if you’re interested in making his collection yours, see the full listing from glosrobert on eBay.

Why add the EM retro from this year and not the Air Maxim 1 ? They actually look more like the original... Also The AM OG "2012" actually dropped in 2013 and those leather joints from 1997 are crazy
@DrSwoosh actually they dropped dec 31st.....2012
