Today, Nike Sportswear celebrated Air Max Day on a global scale with the original Air Max 1 at the center of attention. On this day twenty-seven years ago, Nike released the first sneaker with visible Air, and from that shoe an endless string of footwear followed. While the original Tinker Hatfield design popped up a few times throughout the 90’s, it was the 21st Century that revitalized the shoe and re-established it as one of the best sneakers ever created, and while the original “Sport Red” colorway still possesses the rebellious heritage of the brand, there were several other notables that made the Air Max 1 such an icon.
This collection of Air Max 1 releases celebrates all the gems that released over the years, and this mix of limited-edition collaborations and subdued general releases speaks volumes of how irresistible this shoe us. Big names like Japan’s atmos and Amsterdam’s Parra will be common themes here, but a near-perfect re-issue from 2002 deserves plenty of notice as well. Check out this collection of AM1 bangers and let us know which of these are in your personal collections!
Victor Aparicioas soon as I decide to het back in the game, u gonna be my hookup. I need ur online luck lol
Parra Patta still one of my two Ultimate Grails, greatest collab imo ever. Love the shoe, love the color, just amazing, i wish they would retro this!
'Hold Tight' is the type of shoe that fucks your bosses hot daughter, burns down his house and steals his Ferrari = Fucking MEAN!
Nice list. The only Air Max I like are the 1s. Hope to see some good collabs coming up. Have not bought a pair in a while.

Was in college for most of these drops so it would've mattered anyway, brotha had no funds! Nike was on their A game back in the day with their runners. Fire on each page, good job!
