In 1987, the face of sneaker culture was shifted forever with the launch of the iconic Nike Air Max 1
, and since then the Air Max collection has never strayed far from the spotlight. Today marks the launch of the Air Max OG 1 in the University Red colourway, a re-release of the coveted red, white and grey design that started it all.
Paying homage to its ancestors, the Air Max OG 1 has been recreated in the original materials that made it the holy grail for sneakerheads. With a silhouette that’s been dubbed the ‘golden era shape’, this commemorative sneaker features a soft mesh upper, grey suede overlays and a white air unit. The addition of a side swoosh and branding to the tongue completes a well-balanced aesthetic that remains as relevant as it is retro.
The Air Max OG 1 is now available online.
