Nike's Grey and Orange Air Max 1 Is a Summer Sweetheart
With an unmissable Swoosh.
Nike has recently reinvented its iconic Swoosh – it’s been seen in a “motion” style across several sneakers. For those who prefer the classic look with a trend-led touch however, these summer-ready kicks might find their way onto your wishlist.
The signature sporty Air Max 1 silhouette remains true to the original, with the makeover simply coming in the form of the color palette. The upper is formed from a combination of “Desert Sand” and blue-toned “Wolf Grey” leather and fabric panels, complemented by grey laces. Blue embroidered branding rests on the heel but the real pop of color comes thanks to the bold “Total Orange” Swoosh that slides across the sidewall. The entire unit rests upon an off-white, Air Max cushioned misdsole. Pair these with minimal pieces by COS or Everlane to really let the Swoosh stand out.
Take a closer look at Nike’s Air Max 1 in “Desert Sand/Total Orange/Wolf Grey” above and cop a pair for yourself at retailers like Titolo for €150 EUR (approx. $174 USD). For a minimal look, check out this all-white Air Max 1.
