The Air Max 1 ‘London’ takes its inspiration from the city’s urban landscape and its daily bustle. The different shades of grey and combination of textured materials—such as distressed leather and hairy suede—reference the mixture of concrete and stone structures that make up England’s capital.
Honouring London’s love for the OG elements of the Air Max 1, this release keeps the original mesh in the upper, collar and tongue. Finishing off the design are abstract interpretations of two of the city’s most iconic landmarks on each of the shoe’s side panels, and the River Thames depicted around a 3D-embroidered logo on the heel.
AIR MAX 1
Remember the revolution. The year 1987 saw the birth of the Air Max lineage, showcasing visible Air for the first time. What began as an experiment in cushioning soon evolved into an icon on the track—and the streets. Over the years, it’s been re-imagined and re-tooled, but the heritage always remains.
