It’s usually a really hard choice trying to figure out what my favourite pick-up of the year was, but this year Nike made it easy.
Last March the team at Nike Toronto sent over a pair of the 30th Anniversary Air Max 1’s in sport red, the Air Max 1 that started it all.
With the crazy limited packaging, the new shape and the fact that it was a gift from Nike, it made this shoe the easy choice for my favourite shoe for 2017.
With all the news and rumours circling around, I am really curious what 2018 will bring.
About the 30th Anniversary of the Air Max 1:
Nike celebrated the 30th Anniversary of the Air Max 1 by re-releasing the iconic shoe in its original form and colourway. The Anniversary packaging is almost as impressive as the shoe!
The revolutionary sneaker, designed by Tinker Hatfield, was first introduced 30 years ago in a “White and University Red” colourway. It is the first sneaker to feature visible Max Air and was originally released in 1987.
Even after many re-releases and collaborations, it is still highly coveted in the sneaker world.
Nike News (2015): The Evolution of Visible Air is a good article that visually shows the history of visible air that changed the course of sneakers forever.
