Get in the Sun for the Nike Air Max 1 ‘Tan Lines’
Nike continue to demonstrate the Air Max 1’s versatility for taking on wild colours and materials with the upcoming ‘Tan Lines’ edition. As recently shown by the bandana-print remake, this mixture of shades and textiles is yet another example of the model’s ongoing penchant for the unconventional.
Opting to use the standard Air unit instead of the ‘Big Bubble’ that was brought back not long ago hasn’t diminished the impact of these AM1s. The crazy upper does all of the heavy lifting with its extra fuzzy suede panels and heavy duty mesh. It’s definitely not shy about its texture. The palette is just as outgoing, ranging from sandy mudguards to dusty pink midsections and bits of blue, green and orange for good measure. Even the midsole gets in on the action by exhibiting its own aged yellow ‘Tan Lines’. The pair is finished with alternative Nike branding in ‘swash’ style font on the tongue and heel. By the way, this will be in women’s sizing.
