“A passionate ambassador of Air Max culture; a connoisseur of leather, mesh, nylon and above all else, Visible Air.”
With Air Max Day coming up next month, images of the Nike Air Max 1 ‘Master’ have surfaced today. The sneaker is a mash-up of the greatest Air Max 1 hits onto one shoe. The colourway is linked to the Masters of Air, the passionate Air Max collectors featured in a short Nike documentary that was released this time last year to celebrate Air Max Day 2016.
Exhibiting premium black leather, the sneaker has perforated panels along the toe, quarter and collar. The focal point is directed at the mudguard – composed of swatches from classic Air Max releases, including he OG Red, Safari, Patta and Viotech colourways. Featuring the signature perforations from the Kid Robot x Air Max 1 upper on the sneakers upper and of course a mosaic of patterns and colours of the greatest hits of the iconic Tinker Hatfield.
“Listen this isn’t about me or even Nike, the product isn’t something you wear, its something that you live. Thank you for letting me come along for the ride.” -Tinker Hatfield, Architect for Visible Air.
The sneaker drops on Air Max Day at select Nike retailers on March 26th.
An alternate version of the sneaker has also surfaced; this time the black leather upper is replaced by a competing white! There is no word as of yet of the release of the alternate Air Max 1 as it is rumored to be Friends and Family release, stay tuned for updates!
