Tangy Time: The Nike Air Max 1 ‘Limeade’Release: 19 September 2020
These green Nike Air Max 1s were previewed quite some time ago, and following some radio silence, official images and release details have now arrived. Nike are calling them the ‘Limeade’, and that theme becomes more obvious the longer you look at them.
This configuration uses ‘Pine Green’ leather and mesh uppers, with contrasting mid and heel panels displaying an ‘Air’ motif first used on the legendary ‘Powerwall’ collection from 2005. The citrus inspiration is made clear with the lime graphic on the tongue label, matched to an all-over insole graphic. Very juicy.
The Air Max 1 ‘Limeade’ is set to return on September 19 at selected Nike retailers. There’s also word of a ‘Lemonade’ retro coming too, but that’s yet to be confirmed.
