Nike’s Air Max Day began in 2014 to celebrate the revolutionary technology’s 27th century. As 2022’s iteration inches closer, the brand has unveiled three headlining releases, which include the North America-exclusive Air Max 1 “Blueprint.”
Unveiled alongside pairs inspired by the Japanese ideology of wabi-sabi and Paris, the “Blueprint” proposition takes a playful approach to commemorating Tinker Hatfield’s original Air Max as the foundation for so much that’s transpired in footwear over the last 35 years. Breathable mesh comes together with high-quality leather throughout the upper, with the latter material favoring a light blue tone that delivers a play on the Air Max 1’s moniker. Profile swooshes and labels on the top of the tongue boast grid patterns that also reference blueprint schematics, while the heel features a globe that speaks to the design’s global appeal. Lastly, the sneaker’s anatomy is printed onto the sock-liners, along with a message: “Created for the Future of Sport.”
