Revolutionizing the game, the Air Max 1 hit the market on March 26th, 1987. What began as an experiment and has grown into a legend, the visible air unit as taken on the likes of many other iconic Nike models like the Air Max 90, Air Max 95 and the Air Max Plus. The “window of sole” has crossed into other markets in addition to running such as basketball seen on the Air Jordan III and IV and training like that of the Air Trainer Max ‘94.
In celebration of twenty-seven successful years and aerospace engineer, Frank’s Rudy’s, genius idea, the Air Max 1 “Air Max Day” released in limited quanities today on Nike.com. The shoe features the classic white, grey and university red premium upper with a trendy volt colored inner lining and midsole. And nothing screams Happy Birthday like the “3.26” tongue tags. Hope you had luck getting your pair.
