So it turns out the Air Max 1 Royal won't be launching on its lonesome. The previously revealed 'black/tan' colourway will also be joined by a lighter rendition of the deconstructed Max 1 and in this 'linen' colourway the details really shine. Unlike your conventional AM1, the panelling on these jawns is entirely laser cut and welded together – creating an almost stitch-less upper. The usual side-wall Swoosh is laser-engraved into the premium suede, while the branding at the rear has been removed and a minimalist heel-pull Swoosh added in its place. The Royal doesn't come cheap, but damn these are fine!
Available March 26th from selected top-tier Nike accounts, including END.
