Nike are gearing up for Air Max Day 2022, which is only just over two weeks away. As part of their annual celebration of all things Air Max, this year the Swoosh are throwing a collectibility curveball for sneakerheads by releasing region-exclusive products. For example, this Air Max 1 will only be available in North America.

While previously leaked, Nike have confirmed its existence, and also given a brief backstory. Nicknamed the ‘Blueprint’ – explaining the colourway – the idea behind this pair is actually based on the global appeal of the AM1. This is why globe patterns are printed onto the uppers and insoles.

As seen from earlier looks, the rest of this pair has plenty of material and colour details to observe. The uppers are a mix of mesh toe boxes, microfibre mudguards, stitched mini Swooshes, leather tongues and mesh lining. And the outsoles feature ice soles with darker toe and heel accents.

As expected, the Air Max 1 ‘Blueprint’ will release on Air Max Day, which is March 26. It will only be available from select Nike retailers and directly from Nike in North America. International sneakerheads will have to call up a plug or try a secondary marketplace to source their pairs.
