Previous versions of the Air Max 1 Essential have traded on the original’s iconic status by making use of materials, like heavier leather and suede. This style oriented construction produced smart-casual shoes befitting the Air Max 1’s enduring popularity in the leisure market.
The latest version of the Air Max 1 Essential takes the opposite approach. By incorporating modern elements like no-sew, perforated, synthetic uppers and phylon midsoles, Nike throws the Air Max 1 back into the fray of modernism. The results blend classic aesthetics and modern technology.
