Another Nike Air Max 1 Emerges for Air Max Day 2022
Nike Air Max Day is less than three weeks away, and while the brand and retailers have remained tight-lipped about the inevitable special releases coming, some leaks have seeped through. Serial leaker @kangofmemphis has somehow managed to uncover another pair of Air Max 1s with overt references to March 26, all but confirming their existence for the big day.
The direct allusions to Air Max aren’t immediately clear on these AM1s, but there are plenty of interesting details to observe. The palette is a cool white and blue mixture, featuring some premium looking leather on the mudguards, heel counter and forefoot. As seen on many AM1s of late, this edition also features a mini Swoosh on the lateral forefoot. OG mesh shows up on the toe box, while more leather is found on the tongue.
There are some intriguing graphic treatments throughout. The tongue label and medial Swoosh feature a grid pattern, while the lateral side has a darker blue texture. A stamped globe graphic is also found on the heel counter and insole graphics. This release is finished off with ice soles, which also have a darker blue portion at the heel and toe. The connection to Air Max Day is the ‘3.26’ printed on the lace ends.
With Air Max Day drawing ever closer, the story behind these AM1s will be confirmed soon.
