The Atmos X Nike Air Max collaborations are legendary amongst sneaker heads, with iconic models like the Air max 1 receiving a makeover by the brand and selling out instantly. The animal pack that dropped in 2006 which consists of an Air Max 97 and Air Max 1 is considered a grail by many; in part due to the wild animal print which graces the upper. Due to the shoe being over 10 years sadly many new sneakerheads can not get their hands on them.
Thanks to Air Max Month next year fans will be able to pick up a pair with a slight twist. Whilst the bold animal prints remain the white parts of the respective trainers upper are replaced with black. This minor alteration is sure to divide sneaker heads; but with pairs on ebay for well over £500 this may be their best chance for a while.
