There are few colorways and sneaker silhouettes that would be considered as historic as the Nike Air Max 1 in the OG white and red color scheme. It is considered “the one that started it all” when it comes to running shoes, so it’s safe to say that the sneaker lives deep in the heritage that Nike is rooted in. This year is the 30th anniversary for the Nike Air Max 1 so it’s only right that Nike goes all out for the celebration. The month of March has become known as “Air Max Month” in recent years and sneakerheads make sure to bring out their best pairs to show them off. The special day of 3/26 will always be special in the sneaker world, since it is the date of the original release of the very first Air Max back in 1987.
To honor the OG that so many sneaker lovers appreciate, Nike is giving that classic sneaker an upgrade that people are sure to love. Nike is dropping the Air Max 1 Ultra 2.0 ‘OG’ that looks very similar to the classic pair. This Ultra pair comes with the same classic look and mesh and suede upper but the addition of a new-sew overlay makes these lighter than before. The best detail on the shoe aside from it’s classic look and design, is that Nike added “3.26” to the tongue as a way to honor Air Max Day. If you’re a lover of all things Air Max, then this pair is something that you need to add to your rotation.
