The Nike Air Max 1 hasn’t been celebrating a milestone anniversary year, but it’s appeared in some of NIKE, Inc.’s most well-received ensembles throughout 2020. While a recently-surfaced “Dark Teal Green” arrangement won’t arrive until early 2021, it serves as a reminder that the Swoosh isn’t allowing the visible Air cushioning-pioneer to be forgotten as it once was.
As with “Magma Orange” and “Evergreen” iterations from earlier in the year, the forthcoming proposition indulges in a “White/Wolf Grey” base that allows its titular hue to revel in the spotlight. Although the rich tone that takes over the mudguards, branding and Air Max unit is worth anticipating in its own right, perhaps what’ll led enthusiasts of the silhouette to set aside money for a pair is the fact that the take is an “LV8” (read: elevate) iteration, which proffers a premium upgrade to the model’s standard construction. Akin to similar version of the Air Force 1, Tinker Hatfield’s 33-year-old-design boasts a high-quality, full leather upper.

After launching across Asia and Europe in January, the Nike Air Max 1 LV8 “Dark Teal Green” heads to stateside Nike SNKRS on April 15th.
