With their ultra-dark brown and burnt orange accents, these Air Max 1s take their colour palette from the kind of chocolate your dad likes. As you get a little older, however, you begin to notice the nuance of texture, as well as the unobtrusive interplay of tones. As your sneaker palette matures, you learn to appreciate the subtle sophistication of a Nike stripped of bright-coloured sweetness in favour of understatement. If you’re feeling like it’s time to step your sneaker game into the grown-man sphere, this is a good place to start.
