Nike Sportswear’s recent expo in England has left us with a new appreciation for how Hyperfuse technology will bring not only performance benefits but the opportunity for unprecedented colorways to some of the Swoosh’s all time classics. And don’t get us wrong, the ability to imagine all sorts of new gradients along the classic lines of your favorite silhouettes is tantalizing, but there’s no denying that we needed to see one of the original iconic looks to judge this latest mega mashup. And judging by the Nike Air Max 1 Hyperfuse in a style mimicking the OG Varsity Blue edition, this collection is of a quality befitting the rich legacies of the models involved. There’s a tiny 87-pair run of these being made, 3 of which will be given away by Sneaker Queen at the Formaganda tradeshow in Berlin. Click through to see some more images and let us know if you think the Air Max 1 Hyperfuse does the AM1’s OG Blue colorup justice.
