1987 will forever mark the birth of one of the most popular, bestselling and culturally-influential sneakers of all-time. Originally an attempt at cushioning innovation, the Air Max quickly evolved into a streetwear icon. Over time, the silhouette has been tinkered with but the heritage and cultural status has remained the same.
Of course, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Air Max, Nike has been dropping heater after heater, classic colorways retooled for the modern era. Not to be overlooked, the Red/White Air Max 1 from the 80's has been reimagined in an Ultra 2.0 Limited Edition version. Equipped with a suede and mesh upper for support and breathability, polyurethane midsole with the classic visible Max Air heel cushion, and a rubber waffle outsole for durable traction, the upgraded Air Max 1 has definitely benefitted from the modern tweaks.
