Sacramento Kings point guard De’Aaron Fox is the latest NBA young gun to get his own special Nike release, opting for the Air Max 1. The upcoming colourway joins Jayson Tatum’s Air Max 97 and Devin Booker’s Air Force 1 Low.
The Air Max 1 ‘SWIPA’ is inspired by Fox’s love for astronomy, dressed in a mismatched universe of colours representing the planets of our solar system. The sockliner and insoles are marked with astrodynamic equations, while ‘SWIPA’ – Fox’s nickname – is printed on the heel. Last but not least, his ‘5’ jersey number is placed on an eclipse graphic on the tongue to complete the personal touches.
The Nike Air Max 1 ‘SWIPA’ releases on May 30 in limited quantities at Nike and select retailers for $140.
