Nike Air Max 1 OG Royal Blue (2016)
As the name would suggest, this Air Max 1 OG is a homage to the old-school. In fact, this is a direct re-creation of the first every Air Max 1 released back in 1987. Designed by Tinker Hatfield it was the debut shoe to include a visible Air Unit in the heel – revolutionary technology that continues to dominate in the sneaker game.
Over the years Nike tinkered with that classic AM1 construct, adding more innovations and durability measures. While it delivered more comfort, that classic shape became slightly altered from the original.
Now the engineers and designers at Nike have looked to the very first design for an exact copy while including modern innovations. On the microscopic level, everything remains true to the original including the material choices and branding.
