Nike drop a fantastic colourway of the ever classic Air Max 1 in the form of this Black/Sail makeup.
Little needs to be said about the AM1 really; we all know it and almost all of us love it (even when the shape goes a little off or the materials are a bit funky). It’s by far one of the greatest running silhouettes of all time. Back in 2010 Nike dropped the Black Pack, which featured an all-Black AM1 in very similar materials to this. For those of us who don’t appreciate a Black midsole on a runner, it was so near to perfection. I actually remember wishing at the time that they had just done them with a white midsole.
Here, Nike basically make that wish come true, putting a Sail (off-white) midsole on an otherwise all-black-everything AM1 … and it’s a thing of beauty. This Blacked out approach allows the silhouette to shine in it’s own glory, but still gives the midsole some pop, without being too bright. Simply put, this colourway is timeless.
