Sneaker Sunday: Nike Air Max 1

img_0817     The Nike Air Max 1 is a sneaker I’ve admired from afar for awhile now.  Originally distributed in 1987, the Tinker Hatfield designed shoe is the first Nike sneaker with an exposed air unit.  Personally, I think it’s one of the coolest looking shoes ever made. The wave pattern on the front that also acts as a “mudguard” is one of my favorite aspects as well as the original “Nike Air” stitched into the heel.  So many different colorways and collaborations have happened with this shoe making it a staple in sneaker and pop culture history.  img_0819img_0820I got my pair this year and I could not be happier with them. From a style standpoint, the mostly black look is nice as it allows me to wear it with anything.  The suede silver mudguard is the most aesthetically pleasing aspect of the sneaker for me along with the white leather swoosh.  The black mesh is surprisingly comfortable around my foot and the fat tongue is reminiscent of a SB Dunk low.  The gum bottom really completes the whole look of the shoe making it one of the cleanest colorways I own. I can wear these shoes out to bars at night, meeting customers at job sites or just chillin by the barbecue in the summertime and they would never look out of place.  They’re also extremely comfortable with the premium materials hugging your foot and the air unit doing it’s work supporting your foot. Would always recommend these to anyone who needs a good “everyday” sneaker.
