Once constructed in mesh and suede for maximum performance, the Air Max 1 is now equipped for everyday life with a premium leather upper. Its premium upper arrives in the familiar combination of black and red, displayed in the same color blocking utilized by that unforgettable model introduced in 1985. A final nod to 1985—the year black-and-red footwear made its way to the court—is included with an embossed Nike Air logo on the lateral heel.
Classics don’t become classics overnight. That distinction is earned over time. Whether it’s a striking silhouette or a popular color scheme, it takes years—and sometimes, longer—to earn the love of the community. The latest Air Max 1 unites two classics—the Air Max 1 and black-and-red colorway—to create a fresh expression of modern sport style.
